The food was OUTSTANDING!, servoce good and atmosphere quite nice. Add that to quite reasonable prices for Kyoto (ok maybe cheap for Kyoto), and what more could you ask for.

We were so excited to go here because of the great reviews. Okonomiyaki was good but the rest was just ok. The staff didn't speak english very well but they were nice and friendly. The restaurant got really hot because they have the cooking tray in the middle of the table and it was hot the whole time. I didn't see much of point, since it was just for the heating the food. I couldn't wait to get out of there.

We ate at the Donguri 5 minutes from Kyoto station. Busy all evening, but as with everything we have experienced in Japan, very attentive service, very friendly.
The food was very good, dumplings, pancakes and followed by black sesame ice cream.
Good atmosphere, highly recommend.

We visited this place while staying at the Royal Park Hotel THE Kyoto next door. Their specialty is okonomyaki, a Japanese equivalent of pancakes made with cabbage, which are prepared right in front of you by the chef. Their menu is impressive: you have a lot of choices for toppings to choose from. We had a great time and the okonomiyaki were excellent (and inexpensive).

The restaurant was recommended to us by our Hostel (K's house)
When we came in we were immediately greeted by several people (typical japanese) and placed in one of the booths.
We had had Okonomiyaki one time before during our trip to Japan, which i liked, so we decided to go for it again. The okonomiyaki here was sooo delicious, but especially memorable were the spicy Yakisoba noodles! Honestly the best dish we had in Japan.
Also nice staff and a great atmosphere.
