I can’t imagine how this place does not get all 5 star reviews. First you have to know you are going to a kaiseki, you don’t choose you are given a series of small dishes that are prepared by the chef for that day. You...More
Blown away by this amazing find! We were walking along one of the laneways of beautiful Kyoto and came across this hidden gem. Very reasonably priced at 4000 yen for 8 beautiful dishes that were not only delicious and full of flavour but also so...More
we sat at the counter and I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, ambiance and watching the kitchen staff and fellow customers. The food was not always to be my taste but really interesting flavours and presentation and one not to be missed. Reasonably priced for where...More
Workspace is oily with little space for staff to move around. Air suction isn’t powerful enough to suck up the odour and fumes from grill section of the kitchen meaning our jacket that was hanged by the wall all stank. Diners are all cramped together...More
A thoroughly enjoyable experience!
The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, it's not so spacious: I kept bumping elbows with the guy beside me (when seated at the counter/bar) but I was there for the food!
Little dishes of interesting and tasty food were...More
This restaurant is perfect if you want to experience kaiseki (japanese haute cuisine) in a totally relaxed, joung and edgy environment. The food is amazing, the staff and the cooks are friendly, inviting and entertaining. I can recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting kyoto.
Family of four (adult children) visited for dinner having booked the previous night. We were seated upstairs which was busy but not rammed. The deal is an eight course taster meal for about £32. There is no choice or menu. We also had a couple...More
Much hyped, much loved by tourists restaurant near Gion, which we booked well before heading to Japan 🇯🇵.
We had counter seats, which are probably best unless you’re in a group. We had a great view of the kitchen and a partial view of cherry...More
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Sorry for such a late reply. I just saw this. I believe you have to make reservations once you are there. If you are at a hotel, have them do it for you. If, not, you could drift by one evening and make the reservation in person. They do speak some English. I suppose you could try on the phone once you are there as well. Enjoy
