In an area full of kaiseki and maiko dinners, I was delighted to find a place serving simpler food. The setting was perfect with tatami seat. Service was good. Not much English though. But English menu. My tempura set was refreshing, with Kyoto egg roll...More

great beef served in a rather traditional atmosphere (though western-style seating is available). Dishes are tasty and generous, service is great. Prices are OK, especially when you consider the style and the location.

We walked past and were told by our guide this was a very good place for beef, either Sabu-Sabu or as sukiyaki. It proofed fully correct. A small place offering great food with abundant portions. Not cheap but lots of value for money. A most...More

Old Gion closes early so you need to be in the restaurants by 8.30 latest as you will be out by 10 as they close. We had a nice fondue style meal which was quite good but you cook in water, no broth with flavour....More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
