We walked in by accident without a reservation. We could sit upstairs and had a chef there who made all the hot dishes. We could choose from three set-menu's. we choose the middle one and we choose right. Course after course it was a feast...More

Came here for my one high end meal while in Japan. I chose Kigawa as i read an article that recommended it. I had the 12 course meal that was 22 000 YEN + drinks. I would say 9/12 dishes were 10/10. Fantastic food! The...More

Overall found most dishes to be lacking in flavour . Not sure if Kappo is meant to highlight the natural beauty of each ingredient , so much so that most dishes were very mediocre. A little more seasoning would have gone a very long way....More

If you want to experience traditional kappo cuisine, come here for a good value (it's still pricey but one of the better deals in town). They do all their fish courses and broths really well. Staff is friendly and speak some English.

We had ten courses. It was a truly beautiful meal and the service was just lovely. Interesting dishes, great sauces, lots of flavour. It was great watching the chef's at work. One of the staff spoke excellent English and they translated our menu. A very...More

Great presentation. Meticulous food preparation. I ordered the 12,000 omakase course and left some of the dishes unfinished. Most if not all of the dishes failed to impress and the flavors didnt integrate well. The Kigawa original sashimi plate was subpar and is perhaps one...More

The ¥5,000 , ¥8,000, and ¥12,000 selections is true for lunch. I am not sure if it's the same price for dinner. I would say that it's better to reserve and let them know your allergies / dislikes so they can prepare... More

You would have to book it via your hotel. They do not accept reservations otherwise.
