This amazing hotel restaurant (frequented by the imperial family) harkens to a past that I'm not sure ever existed. The mix of history and cultures come together in a sweet wonderful way that doesn't seem to be part of this world. Is it from France, from the 50's, from the imperial family, from a ghibli film? Whatever it is, it's unusual and charming. Even if you're not staying at the hotel, don't miss this restaurant.

There is a choice between a western breakfast or the Japanese breakfast you cannot go wrong with either one. The service is warm and meticulous.

We stayed at nara hotel for 3 days and had lunch the last day before departing for the airport. I mean the food tastes like a fast food restaurant on the highway in Europe. Economy class ticket beef curry on a low cost airline is of the same taste. This regarding the beef curry. My wife ordered chicken pilaf. I would call it butter pilaf with traces of chicken. Absolutely terrible. I order hamburger. Almost as good as mc Donalds. I definitely do not recommend this restaurant. I think it is a petty for such a nice hotel to offer such food.
