We had gotten our guesthouse to make reservations on our behalf as we do not speak Japanese. To our surprise, we were not given a choice of menu when we arrived but immediately served the first 3 courses of the 12 course tofu set menu (~4500¥). Not knowing what else to do, we started eating though I had actually preferred... More

Had a solo dinner at Kondou Tofu An on a quiet weekday. At their urging, I dined alone, luxuriously in a small private room that faced the street. As reflected by many of the other reviews below, this restaurant specializes in tofu. The prix-fixe dinner menu consists of a multi-course extravaganza that involves just about every imaginable form of tofu.... More

If you are visiting Nara, Kondou Tofu Naramachi is the Naramachi neighbourhood gem. The restaurant may be a little bit tricky to find as it is set in a beautiful old wooden house - but we didn't have that problem as we had a pocket WiFi with us. We arrived at the restaurant for our 6PM reservation (after a day... More

there are 4 type of course. Basic, Chicken, Duck and Beef. The last 3 have to be pre ordered. Had the basic, not my kids staple. Pricey for just toufu. The boiled toufu was made with gas burner. Service was good though.

The restaurant was quiet when we arrived and during our meal. The elaborate 16 course menu had well explained English translations of the tofu dishes, all of which were delicious and tastefully presented on beautiful crockery. We asked our guesthouse to call and make a reservation as it was difficult on the phone with little English at the other end.... More

This place is exceptional. We've been there twice, on our previous visit and again now even though I am not a big fan of tofu. They serve all tofu dishes with a little touch of vegetables or fruit, mostly for culinary and/or artistic reasons. The food is so unusual that one starts wondering if it really is all tofu. After...
