First Review by Derek

Kotobukiya - Kaga shojin ryori - Edit

If you want a vegan meal at Kotobukiya, you need to reserve 3 days in advance; and it's not cheap (around $45-50 for lunch; $80-100 for dinner, depending on number of courses). So it's not a casual meal; it's an occasion. That's the downside.
On the upside, what I had at dinner there was 8 courses of delicious and beautifully-prepared shojin ryori (Buddhist vegan cuisine), served course-by-course on fine pottery and lacquerware; a feast for the eyes and mouth. And the restaurant itself is in a restored 150-year-old machiya townhouse.
It's Japanese formal dining for vegans, and there are very few places where you can find it done this well.
If you're interested, your hotel can probably help with reservations, or use GuruNavi (gurunavi.com) for assistance.

Pros: Excellent food, Excellent service

Cons: Expensive (but not out of line)
