We stumbled across this nice looking little Thai place while walking around on our first night in Kyoto. After going against our instinct and choosing a restaurant that we hadn't researched - proved to be the wrong move.
The staff avoided eye contact and barely got to taking our order and it took them some time to offer us drinks and take our order.
The food that we had was not very good and was a Thai / Japanese fusion.
The restaurant aethetics are really nice though an I would only stay if you can get a table on the balcony - the view might keep you busy so you don't worry about the restaurant.
