Very nice place to be in but the worst food and hospitality experience. No service at all. We got the salad and starters very fast but then there was no sign of main course for about an hour. When that came there were no breads. And on top of it food was also hopeless. Overall hopeless.

It's not cheap, but with the size of the food and the taste and good humbly service, it's a reasonable price. Hearty and fulfilling meal. Don't forget to order the cheese naan! Even writing it here makes me wanna go there for the cheesy-almost like pizza-naan. Dip it to the curry, heavenly taste! The curry is not spicy at all.... More

After over a week of eating almost nothing but Japanese food (albeit very good Japanese food) my wife and I were in desperate need for something different. We actually found Namaste Taj Mahal while walking around the tourist area by Gion and decided to come back later for dinner. The restaurant is quite huge, especially for Japan and the waitstaff...

I was looking for a good Indian spot that would be conveniently located close to locations we were planning to visit and stumbled upon a blog about this Namaste Taj Mahal which is located near the Inari Shrine, another must do when you are in Kyoto. You can walk to the restaurant after your hike through the shrine (just cross... More

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
