This place was conveniently located near Kiyumiza-dera right on the edge of Maruyama Park. I got the curry udon with vegetable tempura, which was delicious and really hit the spot, especially with the rainy weather outside. There are 4 spice blends at the table to try, and they give you a paper bib to protect your clothes if you order curry! Highly recommend - my parents enjoyed their food as well! My dad also thought his curry udon with tempura shrimp was great!

My wife and I were looking for some local food as we walked through Gion. We found Mimikou on TripAdvisor and thought we'd give it a try. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious! Loved the pork curry udon. Straight out of Kyoto. Staff was helpful and friendly.
