fine food but a bit out of the way, and off the beaten track. Lovely owners. Unfortunately one in our group who has celiac disease didn't eat her meal, due to the wheat discovered in her gluten free dish by her NIMA sensor.More

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

Hi, I visited the restaurant frequently in January, and found that it wasn't very busy, particularly on Mondays. Unless you want to book for a large amount of people, I would say you'd be safe without a booking
