We were asked if we wanted Japanese or Western dining. I said Japanese not knowing the experiential fun I was getting into. We were taken across a zen garden and treated to flute music, tatami mats, and cooking at our table. The courses were laid...More

We went here for lunch and had an excellent meal. Is it the highest-end sink g possible? No. Is it a solid and excellent meal? Definitely, especially for lunch. The sesame tofu, Onsen egg, and tempura are all too drawer. Definitely worth a visit.

Hi. Yudofu Sagano has one set, multi-course meal. No other options. That said, tofu itself is gluten-free, right? I don't think the various ways they prepare the dishes generally include gluten items.
