Remember to make a reservation before you go, especially if it’s Friday or Saturday! The restaurant is closed every year for a certain short period of time when the owner goes traveling, so make sure to check their website before going.
Note that they have a cover charge of 280 yen per person, but you do get a small appetizer for it. They sometimes sell out of gyoza, so if you’re in Kyoto during the high season (cherry blossoms and autumn leaves) it’s better to go early so you can be sure you get to eat their delicious dumplings.
