Review excerpt: With a menu that stretches as long as Tsugu’s, your best option is to select dishes you recognize — or you could try pot luck, or bend the waiter’s ear.

Review excerpt: The line-up at Sumikura changes continuously, but it is usually a broad sweep of the Japanese cooking canon: sashimi, tempura and simmered vegetables.

Review excerpt: Kissaten Nasu is a traditional cafe. But it’s also a curry shop and a jazz cafe, and the master might just be one of the most dapper and suave cafe owners this side of Tokyo.

Review excerpt: Kyoto's Nanaezushi is a little treasure, an authentic holdover from a time when sushi was neither an expensive fetish nor a gimmick but instead a quotidian delicacy made by specialists.

Review excerpt: With both of the daily lunch sets on offer you can eat as much you want, and customers do, loading up twee baskets with curry-flavored bread and more at Kyoto's Tentation d'Ange.

Review excerpt: Yuki Kamada’s pizzas at Da Yuki are what you would expect from someone who has gone the extra mile: thin bases and sauces that complement the toppings, with rich and creamy Marrandino buffalo mozzarella.

Review excerpt: Taihou feels like a family restaurant. It’s busy, informal and home to some of the best Sichuan cuisine in Kyoto, which explains the line of people, round the clock.

Review excerpt: As soon as you sit at Shimme, you’ll be served up a plate of hors d’oeuvre, which changes but is likely to be a small serving of fish, and while they serve much more than seafood, the fish tends to be excellent.
