This was the first dinner we had in Kyoto, and the service was fantastic. The ambience of the restaurant was friendly, nothing too formal. The food was not the best we've tasted, but overall it was decent and the portions are huge.

Hands down best salmon nigiri we have ever had, the fatty tuna rolled sushi is also a must. Came back here 2 nights in a row. Staff were very friendly, our waitress was lovely. Great value for money. Hai!

This is a very friendly place where you can easily satisfy your hunger with fresh sushi and many more japanese favourites. Ok, it's not imperial cuisine, but decent and fair priced food. They have an extensive menu also available in English, although not everyone in the staff can speak English. I much prefer the basement informal and cheerful restaurant, where you can chose to sit at the counter watching the chef or at the tables or you can leave your shoes and make yourself comfortable in the japanese-sitting area.
Highly recommended!

If you're looking for a quick, not too expensive place to have decent sushi downtown Kyoto, this is a good choice. Atmosphere is not much to speak of, kind of like a diner. But the service was friendly and fast, the menu available in English and the sushi preparers behind the counter mildly entertaining. Probably not the best sushi you've ever had but good, and the prices were reasonable.
