Fantastic food with a good price tag! Very close to The Golden Temple tourist attraction, if you’re trying to find a place to grab some lunch. Really recommend the Japanese beef steak with salad!

Thank you very much. It is a 3-minute walk from Kinkaku-ji Temple. Thank you for choosing a sightseeing lunch. Steak is the most popular at our lunch. Thank you for visiting our store. Please come again someday.

Almuerzo rápido de preparar 10-15 minutos y muy rico, servicio amable y atento, equilibrado con varias carnes para elegir y verduras. Lo recomiendo. Daros prisa que se llenan las mesas. Quick lunch in a comfortable place close to the Kinkaku-ji, balanced meal with grilled vegetables...and several meats to choose. I totally recommend it. Kind and effective service.

I first came here over 5 years ago with my two Dutch friends and ended up eating here. Little did we know that this place will mean something. We kept coming back during our week stay in Kyoto and it was a great time for...great food and certainly many drinks. This place left such an impression that I wanted to go back again when I do return to Japan. After so many years, I finally came back and felt like I never left. This place feels like home to me and I'm glad that the atmosphere and especially the food is still as great as ever. If you're in the area, give this a chance. Who knows, maybe you'll find something special about this place like I did.More

사장님께서 매우 친절하셔요. 징키스칸 나베를 주문했는데, 불고기랑 맛이 비슷한데 양고기 향도 나고 인상깊었어요. 강추합니다! 금각사 근처에서 적당한 식당을 못 찾으셨다면 이곳, 추천해요~~

Thank you for eating LAMB-SUKIYAKI. Japanese sake in Japan It is divided into beer, sake and shochu. You know beer, but sake is "brew liquor" and shochu is "distilled liquor". Sake is made of rice, but shochu is made of potatoes and grains. Also, please...More

My friends and I went for their lamb sukiyaki lunch special on our way to Kinkakuji Temple and we have no regrets! It was a little small but they seated our party of 5 at the counter, which was great. Very affordable for sukiyaki since...it’s normally double what we paid. Highly recommended!!!!! 很好吃!羊肉真的好甜, 又好吃又便宜。服务员挺客气,让我们很舒服。特别值得去。我推荐所有人来这个参观吃饭,一定很好的!More
