Being quite talk with a giant husband and two kids of average Japanese adult size, we have found a lot of Kyoto Restaurant a to be quite squishy, and quite stuffy since a few of them allow smoking inside. This place on the other hand is clean, airy, plenty of space, gorgeous dim lit atmosphere with an elegant vibe. A four member family meal will go up to 9-10,000¥, which is your mid range price in Kyoto. The menu is meagre - the food is simple but delicious. The katsu dishes were crispy fresh and tasty. The miso was rich and the sake was lovely. A larger beer list and better tsukemono would have enhanced the experience further but there was nothing really that stood out. The English menu helped us novices and the staff was lovely. Highly recommendable!

Arigato goisamasen.

There was always a long long queue outside the shop and it was very seldom that I agreed to line up for food, which turned out to be absolutely worthy.

Fun to prepare the sauce where u grind down your sesame seeds and add one of the selections of sauces. There is also a nice tangy dressing for the cabbage and a pot of pickles. We had a set that had pork katsu with unlimited refills of rice, cabbage and miso.

I loved the food and they give instructions on the sauces and everything so you don’t embarrass yourself! A bit pricey but then again it was tasty. The miso blew my mind!

I was not familiar with this way of preparation but stepped into this lovely unassuming place just looking for something to eat. I have now been here twice. The pork tenderloin is delicious as are the prawns. The staff is very helpful showing you what to do to prepare tge dipping sauce.
