“Great little place hidden away... definitely more atmosphere for lunch!”
Reviewed December 17, 2009

Food here was great - but we hadn't sampled this type of food at other restaurants. We noticed that our lonely planet guide said it was not the best food, but we didn't agree!

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and cool little alley-way to get there. Very reasonably priced. You an fill up on rice, misso soup, cabage and tea at no extra cost!

“Fabulous hole in the wall for tonkatsu”
Reviewed July 28, 2009

Stopped into this little tonkatsu place in "the Cube" above Kyoto-eki, with kids and wife and aged parent. Fabulous! Service was kindly, attentive, and efficient. An English menu was made available for the feckless gaijin. Tonkatsu was to die for. Value for price was excellent given local norms of Kyoto dining. I'd go back, for sure.
