Great restaurant. Kids enjoyed the beefs teak and chicken dish. Adults had the duck and soba noodles. Great place for something different.

Everything was very nice. Not too saulty. I recommend this place! 맛있게 잘 먹었습니다. 음식이 다른데에 비해서 덜짜고 야끼소바면도 탱글합니다. 토마토와 치즈가 들어간 오꼬노미야끼는 맛이 새로웠습니다.

Excellent choice for solo travelers, couples and groups alike. Warm lighting, conversation and clinking utensils from the bustling kitchen make this a top-notch location. O-toshi of fresh vegetables and a varied menu are served, house specialties include okonomiyaki and a duck yakisoba.

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
