Very tasty chicken curry with rice and vegetables. They even make the spice in house! Friendly and kind staff. The resturant has a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Would come again next time I come to Kyoto.

Just stopped by for dinner on our walk out. There was a small queue waiting to get in. Took us 20 mins for our turn. The food was well worth the wait. Definitely highly recommended. They also had gluten-free options.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
