We just arrived from reading our way through osaka and kyoto and we saw a friend from Singapore had posted about a rave review of Motomura... And she was right. This has been the most enjoyable meal in japan so far. We enjoyed the flavour...More

The reviews don’t lie! This place is worth visiting. The food is very good. The menu is simple with just a few options but that is all you need. At the time I went the line was not too bad. It extended just outside the...More
