We came across this restaurant by chance while visiting Ryoan-Ji temple with its famous Zen rock garden. Recognizing the venue from the pictures on happycow we happily went in. It is a small quiet place overlooking beautiful gardens. Very traditional and authentic Japanese experience. They offer a small but delicious menu around Yudofu - traditional buddhist tofu food. Very tasty. Menu is available in English and waitress speaks a little bit English.
Not to be missed experience in Kyoto!
Cons: not cheap
