Grill Yahey

Grill Yahey
A restaurant that is popular among locals including those who are a repeat customer. The heavenly food and pleasant location brings back visitors multiple times including those who stop by every time they visit Kyoto.

The chef creates western style classic dishes familiar to most Japanese people. His original sauces are also impactful complimenting with the main part of the dish. The flavors of the dishes are not overpowering at all. The restaurant is located inside of Kamishichiken Maiko/Gei...moreko district, and is a place they frequent as one of their favorite places to go. The delicate characteristics of Maiko and Geiko seems to be a match with the food served at Grill Yahey.

Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I love that the ambiance of the Maiko and Geiko district, and first thing I noticed was the fans that have names of them on the wall. I can just imagine them coming to Grill Yahey enjoying a meal on their off-days. Omelet rice was just perfect! Egg was cooked soft and the sauce was deliciously mellow. Many people are repeat customers of Grill Yahey.
