Stumbled upon Gion Wasabi after a number of disappointing Kyoto meals in well reviewed establishments, and were more than pleasantly surprised with all aspects of our dining experience. Without attempting to sound arrogant, we know sushi; we come from Vancouver being a major sushi city....More

In short: overpriced and under delivered. Also have to note, staff not very friendly to English speakers... Felt ripped off. 10/10 would not recommend

I would give this a 3.5. My boyfriend and I traveled all through Japan and Kyoto was our last stop. In general, we felt the food there was bland and nothing exciting compared with our experiences in Tokyo, hakone and Osaka. Sushi was good, everything...More

Our family of three had dinner here and thought the food was average (and pricy for Kyoto standard). May be it is because of its location at Gion, but you can get better and less pricy food in Shijo area.

Visiting from Australia. Unfortunately the waiters' English is minimal, but the food speaks for itself. Good quality food and the steaks melt in your mouth. We ordered the Y5400 set menu plus the Y540 cover charge

Ultra contemporary design with a fairly wide range of sushi, tempura etc food available on the menu (also in English). Wide alcohol menu. Set food menus from 3700 upwards. Smoking allowed everywhere and that was a new experience for a European - took me back...More

The sushi was excellent. The place was not easy to find. It seems to be a lot of bookings. We had luck and was offered a place in front of the grill at the bar with a view over the cooks.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
