Gion Suetomo Reviews

Gion Suetomo Google Average Rating



The meal here definitely is a poem. Elegant atmosphere, delicate plates, and wonderful food. All the food is the best of the season in the meanwhile. One plate introduces and transmits the theme to the next plate. That makes whole meal becoming a harmonious poem for the season. The price is quite higher in the night meal. However, the price is totally out of expectation when you have meal for lunch. Private dining room if you have booked a reservation. English menu are available. Recommended.
