Garlic rice was best we have had in Kyoto and the beef...it was probably the best meat we have had. We loved the fact that you were able to cook your own meat on the grill that was in the middle of table. This combined...More

The restaurant is so beautiful, if you go on a weekend book in advance as it is very small and you have only a couple of private rooms. You cook your own meat and the quality is so good that it literally melts in your...More

Hello there. Thank you for taking your time to write a comment here. We are so happy to hear that you liked our meats and the GARLIC RICE which is our high recommendation. Looking forward to seeing you again!

The restaurant itself is very nice and the staff is obviously attentive. Both people that waited on us spoke English so it makes it very non-Japanese speaker friendly. Price might be high for some but this sort of food doesn't come cheap in Japan.

The food was all AMAZING! The staff was accommodating for us not having a reservation. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 The wine wasn't that impressive, but light beer Kirin was good. The garlic rice was our favorite, although the assorted beef was a close second.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its

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

Please call them. They have servers who speak English and one of them speaks English very well. Have you tried calling the Google number? I don't know what day is April 7th but unless it's a big party, they should have space. More
