This restaurant having 5 stars review is impossible from our point of view. The place is ugly, the food is very bad quality Middle East style... even though you’re in Japan we can expect better standards. Very disappointing...

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
