This place is located within Ryoan-ji. We found this as we walked pass it and it has a long entrance to the garden. We found the same restaurant in TripAdvisor but it was named Seigeiinn which is the same as 西源院. Location was off so I suggested the new location for easier finding. A group of Chinese tourist followed us behind the entrance path and was loudly taking photos while others enjoying the quiet garden. I hope there's Chinese signs in the future for those who doesn't understand Japanese or English. The food was delicious and refreshing! We came at a good time since it was raining outside. What's better than enjoying a nice cup of hot tea and lunch while looking out the nicely maintained hidden garden.
