We opted to sit at the counter as we were advised this experience was the best. While it did allow us to watch the chef prepare the meal, and we had our dishes hot and freshly made - the chef himself did not engage with...More
Admittedly I asked the hotel to make us a reservation at this restaurant without realising it was set menus. However we elected for the 8000y menu for dinner.
It was great to sit at the counter and watch the chef do his magic. The quality...More
Went there for the tempura lunch, which was superb in quality of ingredients and taste. A lady showed us in and explained each element of the lunch being served and how to combine the various flavours. There was a lovely garden that we could see...More
This is my second visit here and it is an absolutely essential visit for anyone looking for a rather special evening in Kyoto. The food is absolutely exquisite and superbly presented with love and expertise. The tempura is cooked course by course in front of...More
Each tempura piece is individually deep fried, piece by piece with good pacing, accompanied with the explanation from the chef at the counter and the advice of taking the tempura with care. One can order the set lunch with 8 pieces of tempura or the...More
We had a continuous source of tempura treats fresh and so light . Take care not to burn your tongue. We sat at the bar and watched the chef prep and cook our tempura as fast as we ate. Wow this is the way to...More
This was a lovely experience for a date night. We made a reservation online a couple weeks in advance for dinner at the bar. Service was excellent with servers who spoke very good English and were quite polite and helpful when it came to dietary...More
We feel really lucky to have managed to get a seat, in this small 10 seater tempura restaurant, without a reservation, for lunch. This establishment also runs a ryokan next door, so you get seated in there until there is space for you at the...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
