Had a yuba dinner course with a friend of mine. Yes the service was fine, and yuba was probably the best yuba I've ever had. Good price for what you get. However, I probably won't visit again, unless it's my company's first time visiting Kyoto...More

We booked Yuba Kaiseki Dinner course. It was presented beautifully in a great setting. However, my family is not a fan with the food. We love other Japanese food: sushi, sashimi, ramen, rice bowl...but not Yuba Kaiseki...unfortunately.
