Perhaps my score is unfair because I've never been a huge fan of tofu. There were many different varieties and I'm sure the quality was extremely high but I think to many people it will just be too bland unless you're very much used to eating it.

We went in thinking we can get the typical sushi/sashimi/bento meals. Boy were we surprised to find that they serve tofu-based meals. We actually thought of leaving but decided to stick to it and ordered away. The food was interestingly good, we were pleasantly surprised! Highly recommended to try this restaurant.

Yudofo is the best example that bring out the spirit of Kyo-ryori (京料理 = Kyoto Cuisine).
