Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was hungry and stumbled across this place - hot plates on the table to keep food warm rather than cook it. Full of locals. Service was excellent. Not fine dining but good tasty grub

I don’t understand how this place has a 4.5. I had a very bad experience and it’s only food related. I ordered a beef dish that ended up being offal with pure chunks of fat my dog would not eat. The only good thing was...the generous pour of whiskey and okanimyaka was not bad Don’t wast your precious time eating hereMore

The food is amazing but the service trumps everything. Amazing staff! No matter how busy everyone was, they never failed to have a smile on. Great place for vegetarians though the options are limited.

It‘s a good idea to make a reservation, even for 1 person. I sat by the open kitchen, good fun to watch the chefs. I had salad, tofu, beans, beef. Food superb, chefs fun, menu in some English, enough to order. Great place! Highly recommend!

This was our third okonomyaki place in Kyoto, and our new fav. Great atmosphere, and even better food. The seafood was excellent, but the tomato mozzarella was aboslutely out of this world! We tried to figure out exactly what was going on in there to...make it taste so amazing, but just decided to give up and enjoy!More

We red the reviews on tripadvisor and they were not even correct, it was so much better . If it is possible try to sit at the bar, only downside of that spot is that you problably will eat more

Typical restaurant that has bought their reviews, 20% discount if you do. So first off their menu says that they “offer” you a dish, usually offer means free, but in this case it’s 600yen (beef tongue) and it’s hilarious that they still give it/charge each...person, even when people in your party are vegetarian. Then we ordered two okonimayki “specialties”, if you like 400grams of mayonnaise on your plate, then you’ll find it very special. They don’t have a vegetarian option on the menu (Why again is this listed as a vegetarian friendly restaurant?), just vegetable starters. My girlfriend wanted the mozzarella okonomiyaki (Which of course has meat). They took out the meat, we ate, got the bill and they still charged her the full price even though it didn’t have the most expensive thing on it, THE MEAT! Humour me at least, put on the bill the cheapest okonomiyaki (Which still has meat on it!) and then + 300 yen for cheese, or something like that. Don’t be jerks. Avoid this restaurant, there are much better ones out there. レビューを購入した典型的なレストラン、もしそうなら20%の割引。 だからまず彼らのメニューは彼らがあなたに料理を「提供する」と言っています、通常は無料で提供していますが、この場合は600円(牛タン)であり、あなたのパーティーの人々がたとえ ベジタリアン。 その後、お好み焼きの2つの「特産品」を注文しました。400グラムのマヨネーズがお皿に含まれている場合は、非常に特別です。 メニューにはベジタリアンオプションはありません(なぜベジタリアンフレンドリーなレストランとしてリストされているのですか?)。 私のガールフレンドは、モッツァレラお好み焼き(もちろん肉があります)を望んでいました。 彼らは肉を取り出し、私たちは食べて、法案を手に入れました。そして、最も高価なもの、肉がなくても、彼女はまだ彼女に全額を請求しました! 少なくとも私をユーモア、最も安いお好み焼き(まだ肉が残っている!)を請求書に入れてから、チーズまたはそのようなもののために+ 300円。 ぐちゃぐちゃにしないでください。 このレストランは避けてください。もっと良いものがあります。More
