One of our best meals at Kyoto. We didn’t have a reservation but we got to sit at the bar and enjoy watching the chefs cook and interact while eating. We took the normal course menu. (They have vegetarian option as well.)Every item was prepared with fresh ingredients and with much care. Absolutely loved the experience. Highly recommend.


I think this is a modern Japanese homemade style restaurant. Today was the last night in Kyoto. Among all the restaurants, this was the best. A unagi restaurant was also fantastic, but I like them. I recommend a normal course. I added a french fries.


Simply amazing food! It is hands down the best food we have had in Kyoto in two weeks. The chefs cook infont of you and everything tastes extremely fresh and delicious! I have dietary requirements, and they made me the most delicious stir-fry and were so kind and accomodating and checked several times to make sure certain food was alright for me to eat. The tomato pickled in white wine is an absolute must-try, it's heaven! The atmosphere is awesome, and we really enjoyed both of our visits! Thoroughly recommend!


Translated from Japanese:

I made a reservation with my husband for dinner. It's a popular restaurant, with customers coming in one after another, and the staff inside were all young, so it was very lively.I had a course meal that mainly consisted of vegetables, and I was satisfied.Next time, I'd like to try the a la carte option...


Translated from Japanese:

This is my second time having lunch here. The first time was a special menu due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it was my first time having a regular menu lunch. Pickles are so delicious! There are also combinations like this! It was fun and delicious...


Translated from Japanese:

A wonderful restaurant in Kyoto where you can casually enjoy craft beer and elaborate dishes made with Kyoto vegetables. I took a friend of mine from Tokyo to this restaurant as he highly recommended it. Anyway, what's the food...
