"An absolute sensational kaiseki restaurant that you must visit. We had an purely amazing experience at Gion Hanamai. The Chef was not only very humorous but also makes indescribably delicious food. The lady helping to serve us was very gentle and kind, who also speaks fluent English.
We ordered the most premium course and it was worth every dollar of the price. We had the best ever ‘special beef’ that words cannot describe. I have tried many wagyu beef before and this is definitely the king of all. I have visited many Michelin restaurants and I am a food lover myself. This is definitely the most satisfying dining experience by far. I have wholeheartedly recommended here to my friends and would definitely visit again.
Thank you again for this memorizing meal at Kyoto!"See more
"The food was amazing, cooked to perfection and very tasty. The wild unagi was exceptional. Another must have is the red snapper risotto. We loved the sauces too - reduction of red wine and seaweed or reduction of red wine and ponzu. very elegant strawberries cooked in champagne with delicious cheesecake.
We highly recommend the place for a delicious kaiseki fusion meal. Perfect English is spoken."See more
"A refined and non inexpensive cuisine in the wonderful Gion Quarter in Kyoto for which you have to preselect the menue without any possibility of choosing anything different if you are more than one. The tasty dishes are served very quickly one after the other as if you had a train or an airplane to catch. For a date or simply a dinner with a person dear to you there are certainly more romantic alternatives, set apart the fact that the dining room - in a basement - is not the most interesting sight you may have encountered so far. This said, one can only highlight the excellent quality and tastiness of the food."See more
