I went here with my girlfriend for a late dinner. The staff were welcoming and spoke to us in English upon hearing our broken Japanese. We sat at the main teppanyaki table and it was great to watch the chef! Our food was great, soba noodles with avocado and pork then a tomato and pork dish which reminded me of bubble and squeak. We are definitely going back!

Found this restaurant on the Trip advisor app and headed out into Kyoto. Not being familiar with the street names and the fact that the restaurant name seems hidden, I think we may have passed it a few times but eventually found our way in and given a table / teppanyaki griddle and made our order from an English menu. The food comes partly cooked and is placed directly on the griddle where you finish off the cooking. This is a nice way to dine and always a nice experience.

Stumbled across this restaurant looking for another. Very friendly welcome. Food excellent, beer cold, saki warm, staff very helpful to clueless westerners, good wholesome filling food and fun Japanese experience

We were placed at the bar and in front of us the chefs cooked on massive hot plates. Once the food was (almost) cooked it was transferred to a hot plate on our table for us to finish off. Dinner and a show! A friendly local demonstrated to us how to eat okonomiyaki - foregoing the chopsticks and eating directly with the spatula! The food was delicious, especially their signature avacado yakisoba. Dinner and drinks for 2 cost around 5,000 yen, so not super cheap, but certainly worth it. We didn't find anything else nearly as good value in four days, so we went back at the end of our trip!

This was a great evening, the staff were warm, friendly and helpful. They advised us in the food and how to enjoy it. Those that spoke English explained things well and those that did not speak English tried to help as well
A thoroughly enjoyable evening with great food, great service and enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere
Highly recommended if ever you are in Kyoto
