Excellent dining experience in Nara, the menus are made with local ingredients made in different ways. They take the time to explain the ingredients and provenance of each dish.


Delicious traditional Nara Kaiseki meal with many courses. Each dish was beautifully presented and unique. Every flavour was rich, subtle and delightful.


Great collection of local food. But I wish the staff could speak more English or have an English brochure that explains the dishes. I believe there are a lot of stories behind it.
