“We never miss a visit here!!”
On our first trip to Kyoto we stumbled across this place. Walking past we met the chef outside taking a break who encouraged us to come inside. The rest as they say is history! We met the owner that night and we’ve been in touch ever since. Tonight was our third visit to the restaurant as it is our... third visit to Kyoto. Wonderful to see that the same chef is still here. Very well priced yakatori. Brilliant service. A Simple way to eat in a very relaxing atmosphere. Not a huge amount of English spoken but there are English menus and they do all they can to help you. Google Translate is a blessing for after dinner conversations! A great place for dinner when staying in Kyoto.

“Nice food and reasonably priced”
Two of us had a nice dinner here. Definitely we’d recommended this resto to people. Skewers of different parts of chicken, different types of vegetables, one type of beef and pork. All tasted very good and well managed, do note some are internal organs. One thing all should note is the ventilation... not very powerful and be prepared to be soaked in bbq smell.

The place is quite small, a bar and a few tables. We chose a 4 different yakitori, all good. The staff is nice, they have an English menue and you can pay buy credit card

“Hole-in- the -wall”
Hole on the wall? Sure, but what a hole! We had meat, cut into cubes, a salad and edamame beans. Sounds boring? Well, no. The meat was tender, spiced up and with a nice grilled surface. And the salad - a very generous portion - had a very tasty dressing. The staff, understanding and speaking basic e...nglish, was very friendly. And one last thing, that only can happen in Japan: I forgot my glasses on the table, and one of the staff came running after us with them. Great! We’ll return asap.

“Nice yakitori experience.”
In a crowded Dec 29th night, we found this small yakitori (this is the part that attracted us, maybe it has other types of food.) close to our hotel on Shijo-dori. Nice timing as we wanted to try one before we leave Kyoto. We sat at the bar to see the food being done right in front of us. They ha...ve an english menu, and some employees do speak a functional english so ordering things was easy. We had a skewer set, plus more menu items as we wanted to try more unusual things like skins, hearts. The food was very good. The bar menu is quite complete too. Wine, beer, sake, umeshi. Given that this is not family-oriented, there were smokers all around us, and the grills were also exhaling generous chicken fat smoke. We considered it as a part of the experience, as the place has a good ambience. We would definitely go back if we happen to pass by.
