The food quality at this restaurant is probably better than many restaurants in India! As a South Indian traveller longing for some familiar food, we went to this restaurant. And we were left gobsmacked! The vadas, dosa, rasam etc that we had ordered were truly...More

Nice food and kind staff, but beware: Extremely small portions! We ended up ordering two main dishes (chicken Tika Masala and Chicken tandoori) which were literally miniscule, 1 portion of bashmati rice for 600+ yen which was practically half a plate and two Nan (to...More

Came to Thilaga with family. Pretty good south Indian food, with an okay vegetarian selection, but what really stood out was the decor. I ordered a paratha set with a vegetable curry. The waiter nicely informed us before hand that the set would take 15...More

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

shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
