We had 2 different dinner set menus and both were excellent. Appetisers and soup were all amazing. We had prime rib and beef katsu which were both perfectly done. Garlic rice was the best we've tasted ever. Highly recommend.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its

clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
