Found this place by accident, the best Gyoza we have ever had. Price is higher than average but well worth it

Waited for 20 minutes, then was given a table on the third floor. We got up, was about to sit down when we realised everyone was smoking! We got up and asked if it was ok if we waited for a table in the non...smoking part, it was told no non smoking. Left. People were smoking while they were in the middle of their dinner. Can’t say if good was good. Did that have any, but the staff were friendly. Please make the top the smoking room and leave the rest non smoking. Horrible to sit down in a fog of cigarette smoke to eat dinnerMore

This is a Japanese/Chinese restaurant. We were looking for a restaurant on a Sunday evening and saw a line outside this restaurant. We waited for 45 minutes and got a table on the 3rd floor and it turns out, every table smokes or vapes except...ours. If you do not smoke, make sure you ask for a table at the counter on the first floor. Thankfully, the food did not take long to arrive and the gyoza was tasty. Dandan noodles was spicy but authentic.More

Delicious gyoza, friendly waiters, cozy decor and atmosphere. A great place for a warm and casual dinner in Kyoto.

Was in the area around 7:00 pm and TripAdvisor listed this place as nearby. There was one couple waiting and another couple behind me. The host asked if I had a reservation and then said “no reservation” and shooed me away. So rude! The first...rude person I encountered on my trip to Japan.More

Don’t be turned away from the Queue waiting outside- it moves fast! You will be rewarded ten times over once you take your first bite! The staff is super friendly ( though we sat on the first floor bar where we watched the cook make...everything, but he had a scowl on all night). They have an English menu, too. We also ordered the black colored gyoza, which were great? We would definitely return to try out all the gyoza dishes! 😋More

Yummy little gyoza joint. Dropped in for take out. Gorgeous pork and coriander dumplings were my choice, partner had the shrimp.. loads of coriander on mine- I LOVE coriander.

We stumbled across this place on our first trip to Kyoto a number of years ago. We make a point of dining there when we visit. It is a chain but feels more like a suburban restaurant. Was great to see that some of the...staff are still there years later. The menu is extensive (English menus available) but you can’t go past the Gyoza. Delicious! Today we tried two kinds + had fried rice. Thankfully we didn’t order any more food - it was more than enough. Including two drinks each the cost was around 5000 yen. Good service. Great food. Don’t miss it!More

The food was delicious and see the cooker cooking was spectacular but, if you have to eat in the first floor with the kitchen next to you, there is too much smoke and sometimes it disturbs when breathing.

Was with new friends and one suggested this place! I love Gyoza and this place did not disappoint! Went back two nights in a row to eat here! Will definitely return here if I make it back!

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
