After reading many of the reviews on how busy Gogyo can get at night, my husband and I were there about 10 minutes after the doors opened on a Saturday night. Needless to say, we were the first customers of the night. With ramen typically being a late night food for many Japanese (a la pizza after a night out for Americans), we were happy to have the bar overlooking the kitchen to ourselves. The burnt miso ramen was incredible. It deserves every accolade that is mentioned in these reviews. The restaurant can be a little tricky to find. I brought a photo of the address and map from the website for our cabbie and we still had a little bit of difficulty finding it. It was worth it though! Best meal in Kyoto and possibly Japan.
