The pseudo "irish" / British pub seems popular. At this "pub" the food was decent and the staff (2) pleasant. Not exactly a home away from home for a world weary ex-pat but was a welcome break on a rainy day!More

Thank you very much for visiting our pub during your stay in Japan. We are glad you enjoyed your time and our food.
We are sorry we failed at making you feel like at home, but we are working on improving our service, menu...More
We visited this particular Man in the Moon on our last visit to Kyoto (there are four in the area) and enjoyed the friendly service. This time was no different but much busier (like many, we’re here for the Rugby World Cup).
Good service and...a good place to watch sport on TV. A couple of bar staff have excellent English making orders super easy.
Food is ok (not amazing) but drinks range is brilliant.More

great stuff thanks for your comment, hope to see you again soon
What a treat we stumbled upon, after travelling through Japan for a week, and eating all kinds of unusual food we are not at all used to, all we wanted was something we could eat that was not Japanese food.
Yes I know you are...saying you are in Japan what do you expect you would eat. But hey how nice to have a burger and fries. Seriously it was really nice and great beer on tap.
We had Kirin beer and cheese burgers it was great.
We were served by Noriko she was very helpful and speaks english.
Would recommend this place.More

hi there and thanks for your comment, hope to see you again soon.
A large group of us ( UK+ Anzac tourists on a Wendy Wu tour) arrived after dinner at a local restaurant and were all made most welcome by the staff and also 2 other locals who gave up their seats for us as a gesture...of Japanese -Irish hospitality . It was music night which added an extra element although it was quite odd listening to Japanese jazz -some with lyrics , in an Irish pub ...with not "a wild rover" to be seen, apart from our group!
Many thanks to the one bar lady who gave me and successfully deflated, ready for travel, one of the Jack Daniel`s promo balloons for my son who is such an avid collector of anything and everything JD !
Great selection of beers -draft and bottled and also compared to a number of other watering holes -NOT EXPENSIVE ! Thanks to all M & The Gang !More

Great! thanks so much for your comment and we are glad you had a good time. Please come again!
Overall we had a good experience. My family isn't as adventurous at trying local cuisine and so finding an irish pub for dinner worked well for us. The beer selection was great, along with the rest of the bar menu. Our food came quickly and...hot and was overall fairly good. We had ordered some fried food which were perhaps a little too greasy but not terrible. We saw a couple of these Man on the Moo restaurants so perhaps it's a chain style restaurant around Kyoto.More
Best nearbyWe rank these hotels, restaurants, and attractions by balancing reviews from our members with how close they are to this location.
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.
