Good comfort food, very friendly staff - Edit

This is a good place to go if you're looking for some comfort food. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff, portion sizes were decent (especially compared to many other places in Kyoto), and vegetarian and vegan options were both clearly marked on the menu. There wasn't much in the way of traditional Japanese food on the menu, but then again the owner is from Israel. Smoking is allowed, which is a bit of a shame, but the atmosphere and staff were so lovely and the food was very tasty, I would happily go again.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff , Good portion sizes , Vegetarian and vegan options marked on the menu

Cons: Smoking allowed, Not much in the way of traditional Japanese food

great location, mediocre food - Edit

The food wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst. Portion sizes were on the smaller side. The building itself is really cool though and sits right along a relaxing creek! if you're really in need of some "comfort food" and want a chill place to relax for a bit this may be your place. Honestly, if you only have one night in Kyoto I'd go elsewhere for better food.

Wonderful! - Edit

Beautifully located along a small river in Gojo. The menu is clear and there's a description of every meal so you know what's in it. Many popular western options. Would have loved a few authentic Japanese dishes, but it really is lovely anyway. Being vegan isn't that easy in general in Japan, but the staff is really helpful and meets your needs. Delicious food!

Mixed Experience - Edit

We enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant. Sadly, smoking is permitted which diminished my appetite. Orders came out one at a time...two of us had finished eating long before 4th order arrived. Vegan items are not clear on the menu, just vege indicators. Pizza Zahtar was very small, plain and somewhat mediocre. Falafel pita was delicious, but much smaller than appears in menu...definitely get the full order. Pickle starter delicious...but sauce is not vegan. Disappointed because it feels like such a cool place.

Pros: atmosphere, some delicious items

Cons: smoking, slow cooking ... one dish at a time, vegan items not clear
