We came for dinner. They said they were full. We said we'd wait because no one else was waiting. They acted like they wanted us to leave. Then said it would be two hours, which was obviously ridiculous. But, if they don't want our business,...More

I lived in Thailand for 10 years and my lovely wife is from Chiang Mai. The quality and authenticity of food at Kin Khao are seldom found outside of Thailand. Items like Sai aua (Chiang Mai Sausage) can be hard to find outside Chiang Mai...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
