We arrived moments before 2PM (14:00) - closing time. We were graciously welcomed, nonetheless. A couple of ladies who lunch and a Chinese family were leaving just as we arrived and we had the place to ourselves. After they served us the mother and son made their own lunch and ate at the counter. We shared a large pork and... More

If you feel like a home cooked meal, this is a great place. Their speciality is okonomiyaki, a Japanese savory pancake, but we also had yakisoba, grilled tofu, daikon, eggplant, and all was delicious.

This mom & son operation serves okonomiyaki which is a sort of cooked to order veggie (plus meat or seafood) crepe/pizza. Fascinating to watch its skillful preparation and delicious to eat--light and tasty. Very reasonable prices. Went there two nights in a row!

Now it is high season in Kyoto, Sakura and hundreds of people are running in the streets. This cosy restaurant is a blessing for a nice lunch. They serve authentic Okonomiyaki, a specialty of this area of Japan. Try it and you will love it!

Really delicious food, friendly service, great atmosphere. Our 7 year old twins loved and devoured every morsel. Lemonade icecream spider drinks a special treat to top it off. Warmly recommended.

Delicious Okonomayaki pancake-style feast. We had a huge rice pancake with the works served ion a heated grill in front of us at the counter. Fun, delicious, different from any Japanese food I've ever had in the states, Sake in a box. Best octopus I've ever had.

This is a great little inexpensive casual restaurant that serves traditional Okonomiyaki (you cook at your own table), plus a lot of other great side dishes (gyoza) and even a sliced whole squid (yummy). The food was delicious and made the traditional Japanese way. Great little find close to the Westin hotel and Kyoto Zoo. English spoken. Open late but... More

Loved our dinner at Kiraku! We had soba noodles with veggies, chicken meatballs, sweetcorn, bacon-wrapped asparagus, savoury pancake with beef (I would rather call it an omelette though!) and lovely grilled beef. It was ALL very yummy and we just loved the layed-back setting with very friendly staff. We would love to come back! Prices were also on the cheaper... More

Excellent, cosy place with very friendly staff. In fact Kiraku has several restaurants in Kyoto. You can trust them if you are after some basic but very yummi food and drinks.
