We were looking for a place to eat near Nijo castle. It is a 10 minute walk to the restaurant. They served only tempura for launch. You can watch the chefs cook and the place has nice atmosphere. The dishes were delicious.

There was lunch menu with 2 choices of tempura. Everything was really delicious and the tempura was with a lot of fish.

We went to this restaurant after a short walk looking for a place to eat.The waitress made our stay here a great experience to remember. She explains us all typical food and she gave us an amazing origami class. At the end gave us some typical tea to taste.
The food is really good (tempura's plates are awesome)

Highly recommended place to eat at Kyoto!!!

I had a beautiful meal with my wife and 3 kids (15,13 and 11). The waitress and one of the chefs gave us special attention giving us English menus and descriptions (and even an impromptu origami class). The food was outstanding (and I've had more meals than a maharaj). We really can't speak highly enough of this hidden gem so go along and enjoy a brilliant local Kyoto special.

The place was easy to find. We were welcomed warmly by the host and the chefs. We ordered the recommended dinner set which included the assorted traditional home-cooked food, sashimi, shrimp tempura, and chicken steak. I am allergic to shrimp, and after explaining it to them, they were happy to change it to a squid tempura. We also tried their famous beef steak cooked on a lava plate. Everything we ordered was so good! Everything was well-presented and sumptuous. Good serving size, well-paced. We were given roasted tea after the meal. We enjoyed talking to everyone, especially the host, with our limited Japanese vocabulary. She even made me an origami as a present. My husband and I enjoyed our dinner and that was the best service we've experienced from a restaurant while in Japan. We highly recommend this place while staying in Kyoto!
