“Hard to find but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is a very small restaurant with six seats at the counter and a few tables in the back. It serves kaiseki style food. It was excellent. The chefs are young and very enthusiastic. It was fun to sit at the counter and watch the cooking. The seasme tofu was one of the most amazing dishes that I have ever had. Tofu was soft and creamy with really unique flavors. We tried five or six dishes, but several friends said the best thing is to tell the chef your price limit and have them fix a meal for you. The radish salad was good as well. We were the only people who spoke English so it was a little challenging but there was an English menu for pointing. As other people's orders came out, pointing worked well for trying new things.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FINDING IT: It is in an old historic building with bamboo shutters along the front. When you come from Shijo Avenue onto Hanami-Koji towards Kennigi Temple. Go to the fourth street on the left side (make sure to count) and turn down it. Go almost to the next street and it will be on the right side. Enraku is on the menus that are on the front and it says "English menus" . Be prepared to take off your shoes and make a reservation. It filled up quickly on a Thursday night.
