fairly ok. you do not really know what you order when you order. I would have appreciated a menu with pictures. All in all, quite a amazing and nice local experience to a fair price. Kind staff, foreigner friendly.

If you want an izakaya experience this is it, it’s full of locals, the dishes are cheap, the beer is cold and the sake is delicious. The menu consists of a lot of classic izakaya dishes with seasonal specials too. The dishes we had and...More

Not a fancy place. Really glad about that. We'd had a few drinks beforehand and this was a noisy, bustling, open-kitchened slice of joy. We were seated quickly at the bar/kitchen and handed menus in english and there was at least one english speaking staff...More

We had wonderful food in this little restaurant close to Gion. Izakaya style, nothing fancy, just pure and basic Japanese food, both grilled and raw. The place is very busy and requires reservation. Also, being summer, it was a little uncomfortable due to excessive temperature,...More

My husband and I had an excellent meal here. They gave English menu and helpful staff. Great sashimi and best tempura - super light batter. Would recommend ordering the sake by glass, they pour it to the brim overflowing to the dish below!

Saw a line of locals and tourists waiting to get in and so decided to jump in as well. Very happy we did. The place specializes in Kyoto-style izakaya cuisine and is elbow-to-elbow. They had an English menu and the staff was friendly and attentive....More

Don't miss Yuki's in Gion! This fusion-Japanese resto has got it all, but mostly tepanyaki style and sushi. Ingredients and fish are really fresh and it is just enjoyable to watch the sushi chef to prepare all his delicatessen just in front of you. The...More

Food is good but service ruins the experience. Japanese customers are given priority and non-Japanese are treated poorly. The Japanese customers are greeted politely and seated quickly, while the foreigners get a rudely shouted "OUTSIDE, OUTSIDE" and are expected to wait without further explanation. Foreigners...More

Loved this place it was recommended by a Japanese local we met and absolutely a must go! Not many foreigners, something I think is a good thing!

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
