Fodor's Review

In contrast to the expensive restaurants favored by tourists, residents seek out just-plain-folks places like this one. It's a late-night izakaya specializing in robata-yaki, which is to say a casual bar-restaurant with a charcoal grill and great selection of meat, poultry, and vegetable dishes. Here it's common to order a variety of dishes to share. If there are no tables, find a seat at the long counter. The restaurant is two blocks north of Shijo-dori in the

heart of Gion. Everything here is ¥390, even the drinks. The friendly men who work here enjoy using their broken English with tourists.
