“Consistently wonderful vegetarian food”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've eaten at this tiny hole-in-the-wall with funky peace-poster and cat decoration several times. The food is prepared to order, served perfectly cooked, and is always fascinating. (Don't go if untidiness disturbs you!) You sit at the counter, she cooks right in front of your eyes, and hands the tray to go as soon as it's ready. An experience worth having.

“Fantastic quaint Vegetarian restaurant in the heart of Kyoto.”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This place is really quite hard to find. Had to ask a nearby shop keeper who didn't speak a word of English. He was really nice & walked us to the small alley that led to the restaurant.
Once inside, we felt like we were inside someone's house. It had a cluttered home feel with seating for about 10 at the counter area. The house cat was seen walking leisurely around us during our meal.
The dinner set (1000yen) the 3 of us ordered was all cooked by the lady chef in front of our eyes. And we all had different selection of food! The chef just said "Share" when she served us our meal.
Great Vegetarian meal!
Definitely great value for money!

“Delicious and unconventional”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Not easy to find - tucked along an alleyway. With just a sign saying "Vegetarian bar" to show where it was.. And once inside we realised this was more like someones house than a restaurant.. But we took a seat and the very nice lady showed us a menu.. We both took the Vegetarian Set and waited to see what would arrive..

She had actually cooked 2 different set meals so we shared all of the bowls of food she brought.. and they were all delicious !

And I think it was only 1000 yen per person for the set meal.
