We were hot and starving and in need of vegetarian lunch, but were far away from any restaurants I had researched. We popped in here to ask if they could accommodate me. The waitress/hostess was awesome. When she got a little stuck in our conversation, she opened up a tablet and video called a live translator to help. Everything was... More

We were walking along the Kamo river and looking for a place for dinner. There were too many choices, and we got into Ukiya quite accidentally. But it turned out to be a surprise. The soba and tempura there were of high quality, and the price was reasonable. They sell the house-made noodles too.

I stopped by this little place while wandering around Kiyomizu temple. The Soba noodles and the tempura were really delicious. Overall, it was a very good experience worth trying in this beautiful location.

According to the waiter, the restaurant is famous for its buckwheat noodle and that was what I ordered. Although I had not eaten buckwheat noodle, I was pleasantly surprised. The noodle was served with fermented bean paste, looked bubbly and tasted spongy. Overall, it was pretty delicious. The waiting staffs were also patient to explain the menu to us in... More
