A really beautiful restaurant with a cool but friendly atmosphere. The staff were very helpful (and patient with our broken Japanese). The food was amazing. We had the burnt miso ramen, which was the best I had in Japan, accompanied with gyoza (also delicious). We...More

The kogashi ("burned") ramen at Gogyo is fabulous. We had a burned miso and burned shoyu ramen and they were both fantastic although my favourite was the miso. The bowls are full of dark black broth covering wonderful noodles, egg and vegetables. The décor is...More

A small but very tasty menu, featuring burnt miso and burnt soy ramen, which we had never encountered before but which were excellent. Lovely balance of flavours, and very good service. Prices for lunch were quite reasonable.

Delicious, reasonably priced food. Service was good both times I went. Yummy appetiser of chicken and Japanese veg and burnt soy tsukemen was amazing.

We were looking for some good ramen in Kyoto and found this place. Their specialty is burnt soy sauce ramen, which we tried. They were actually very good, but in the end the burnt flavour was probably too dominant. In any case, they ate worth...More

The place is quite nicely set up and seems popular among locals for Saturday night dinner. The food is traditional Japanese ramen and tempuras, done well but not mind blowing, and the prices are rather high compared to other less fancy joints. We enjoyed the...More

Being a careful traveller I always turn to TripAdvisor as likeminded friends here have continuously shared invaluable information. I have to admit this time I was unwise focusing only on the positive reviews and did not read the negative ones on this ramen shop. Never...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
