Ate here with my boyfriend who eats meat. We made a reservation and were glad we did because we saw several people get turned away for a table at 8pm. They had tons of really good vegetarian options - get the mushrooms! Friendly staff, cozy wooden atmosphere, and yummy yakitori.

We were booked by our host from Ishibekoji Ryugin as the beef was better quality than other Yakitori Restaurants in the area. We were very disappointed. As foreigners we were almost ignored by the chef and waiter. The food was OK but a bit oilier than we had had at other times in Japan. We order scallops (3 cut in half), a potato salad (average) and 150 gm beef (6400 yen) it was tender, tasty and oily. We ordered sake and explained (translator app was handy) fruity, sweet not dry, What we got was dry and that was the only choice. This is an expensive restaurant and is a well rated restaurant which I am sure the locals enjoy but in our case not a restaurant to recommend or go back to.

I couldn’t believe there were no bad reviews for this place and now I know why. The service is fast and friendly. The skewer meat were perfectly cooked with a hint of charcoal. My husband is still raving on about the grilled Kyoto mushrooms.

eing a visitor to Kyoto, this place appears to be a gem of a hole-in-the-wall place. Just three or so tables inside with a few bars stools. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere, and AMAZING yakitori. Really like the Dassai sake as well. Will definitely add this to my must visit spots!
