Fodor's Review

Homestyle o-banzai cooking is the specialty of this sophisticated restaurant found in a beautiful machiya (town house). Bonito sashimi, simmered pumpkin, and gingery ground chicken are artfully presented on lacquer trays, feasts for the eyes that taste even better than they look. Though only three set choices are available, you will find a rich variety of local seasonal fare often numbering between 8 and 12 courses. You'll be greeted warmly by kimono-clad hostesses then seated near a cheerful courtyard garden; the experience feels expansive and inviting. Even though the restaurant is not far from the Karasuma-Shijo intersection (roughly one block north and two blocks east), it is rather tricky to find. Let a taxi driver help you find your way to Mukadeya's front door.
