Stand up sushi bar, that serve you very decent sushi for super cheap. It is not the best sushi you will eat but at this price it is impressive. Also quite fun to be all cramped in this local bar

If you're looking for great sushi at a reasonable price in an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant, this is definitely the place. It's small and no frills - but you're there for the food!

I visited with my friends on our first night in Kyoto. We found the restaurant on trip advisor and went as it was close to where we were staying.

They have an English menu which helped us identify what to have. The locals in the restaurant were really helpful and welcoming and recommended lots of food to have!

The tuna sushi rolls were incredible!

Would highly recommend

Great cheap beers and high-balls (whiskey and soda) about 250 yen each
Delicious and cheap fresh sushi. Lots of fish options but also fried tofu, aubergine and tomato salad.
Cosy and narrow. Would recommend getting there early evening although at 7pm it was a short fast-moving queue.
