We ate here recently while staying at a hotel not far away. We arrived late and didn't have many options in the area that were still open, but that was lucky for us since it resulted in our visit to Kyoto. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. We ordered off of both the sushi menu and the regular menu. The sushi was excellent and was very reasonably priced. The bento box meal off of the regular menu seemed a little pricey at first until we saw how much food was packed into that little box - it was overflowing with tempura, chicken, rice, and sushi. We also tried the strawberry-banana dessert roll. Not everyone enjoyed it as bananas and strawberries fried tempura-style is certainly an odd combination, but it was good if you happen to have the taste for it. They also have a fairly large selection of alcohol for such a small place. The restaurant is small, so it would be difficult to go with a large party, but that just added to the friendly local feel.
