One of the best meals I've had in Japan. There's no denying how delicious a freshly fried, crispy battered prawn or vegetable is. Go try it!

The best meal we had during our three week trip to Japan. That’s Tempura Yoshikawa in a nutshell! We sat at the counter, with the chef cooking just behind it. The tempura batter was so fine as to almost not be there & from boiling...More

We were a family group of 6, aged between 31-65, travelling in Japan on holiday in August 2018. We enjoyed superb food throughout our trip - even myself as a vegetarian - and Tempura Yoshikawa was our culinary highlight! What we loved: 1. Outstanding food....More

How can a 14 course tempura meal be worth 8000 Yen? I don’t know but it is. This will be a tempura meal against which all other tempura you ever eat will be judged. Sit at the tempura bar, grab some sake and just watch...More

City Center
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

We were only 2, we were seated directly. But it's a very small restaurant, so I'd book if I were you, just to be sure.
