Story & Recommendation
Garam Masala offers authentic Indian curry in the popular tourist and ramen area of Ichijoji
When it comes to ramen in Kyoto, you have many choices, but not many of them as authentic as Garam Masala. This restaurant began in 1983 when it was run by the present owner’s mother. So for over 30 years, the restaurant has been serving the people of Kyoto spicy curry. And spicy it is. Their curry is not the mild one many other restaurants in Japan serve – although they, of course, have mild curries like butter chicken too – their curry really packs a punch. The restaurant is not too far from the popular Shisen-do Temple, so you could make a trip to both Shisen-do and Garam Masala on the same day. Inside the restaurant the interior is almost completely made of wood, making for a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
