Cold soba noodle set included a nice grilled eggplant. Service was a bit slow. 11000 JPY for 6 people. Menu is all vegetarian.

Visitors to Kurama can't go wrong here. The wait staff is warm and cheerful, there's an English menu, and the food is unusual, hearty, and delicious. This is vegan food with a long history, and it features uniquely Japanese vegetables that appeal to all tastes. Just a great experience.
