We ate at several Michelin star restaurants on our trip - but this one was the best. Not only in terms of food but also service and decor. We loved the whole experience. Expensive, but absolutely worth it. I still remember the taste of the...More

This might have been the most stand out meal of our trip and for the relative price, it is by far the best dollar for dollar dining experience we had. You enter a below-grade sushi counter off the beautiful, cobble-stoned streets and are immediately greeted...More

This was one of the better meals I have ever had. We had the 16,200 Yen Kaiseke menu which, as you can see from the pictures I added, was a true delight for the eyes, as well as for the mouth. The restaurant is hidden...More

Kyoto is THE city to experience a kaiseki meal, a multicourse progression of both cooked and raw dishes that change based on seasonality. I stayed at Gion Hatanaka, a traditional ryokan that is sisters to this restaurant (also highly recommend). They helped immensely with booking...More

All aspects of this restaurant are just brilliant. It is situated in a really impressive historic neighborhood, but the interior blends tradition with modernity. Service was absolutely royal.
