Implacable service and amazing food. They were able to seat us in a private room within 5 minutes even though we didn’t have reservations. This was such a great ending to walking in the park.


The place feels like going back in time, we came without reservation and they accommodated us within 5 minutes in a private room looking over the park's pond. The whole menu is in Japanese with no English version available so I would recommend you to download a camera translator (like the Google translate) so you can have an idea of what you're ordering. The food was very good but it was not exceptional (4/5), it is very nicely plated and feels like an authentic Japanese experience. Our favorite part was the dessert (like a flan) because its texture just feels so different, it's like having an ocean of a beautiful flavor feeling your mouth (yes, an strange way of describing but try it yourself and see if you agree). Recommended!


Was looking for a nice lunch place around the deer park and came across this incredible restaurant. When we walked in we were greeted with very polite and accomodating servers who kindly led us to a private room where we could enjoy our meal overlying a very cute and elegant Japanese Garden.

We ordered the pork curry which was incredible. Would highly suggest this restaurant.


What a lovely place to have lunch! We stumbled upon this place after visiting Nara park. The staff were so friendly and the food was amazing. Some of the best food I had while in Japan.


Was able to come in with no reservation. Food was delicious and had a private room to enjoy the meal.
