Really nice evening in this little restaurant of Gion. It has only 2 tables and some places at the bar so it is crowded very fast. If you're going in Gion in the afternoon, go write yourself on the waiting list and you can come...More
As all reviews say, probably the best gyozas I’ve tried. If you are going with someone who’s vegetarian beware there are NO veggie options in the menu and they can’t make what they have suitable for vegetarians.
That said, highly recommend if you eat meat!
Gyoza and a few other dishes. Freshly made while you sit at the counter. Friendly service, reasonable prices and good simple food. Great experience. (Come early and / or be prepared for a waiting list)
The gyoza here is absolutely amazing. There is a line, but it is well worth it. Because it is an izakaya, you do need to order a drink with your food. The gyoza is very good though, it has a lot of flavour and juice...More
We were walking around and enjoying the sights when we noticed a small group queuing outside a closed restaurant. It opened at 6pm and had a board to write your name on to gain entry. It is a small place with only around 20 seats....More
So worth it! On our first night in Kyoto we weren't able to get in. Mind you, we didn't know the queuing system at that point. By the time we went back, we knew how it worked. There is a waiting list at the door...More
Discovered this very small restaurant while walking around Gion using TripAdvisor restaurants near me. We put our name on the wait list before opening at 6pm and waited almost an hour - it only fits about 14 people. It was exciting to finally be called...More
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
