This is my lifeline when I visit Kyoto as I more or less eat my lunch here. Great ambience with pleasant music in the background. Great food at cheap prices. Each day there is a Japanese meal and 3 or 4 standard Indian curries.
I recommend the Japanese food as you get to know how delicious Japanese vegan food can be, especially when you are visiting from abroad.
I would definitely recommend going here. More than the food, the host adds a lively touch and charm to the place. Having food here is like eating at my grandmother's place with nice atmosphere and company.
