Story & Recommendation
Enjoy all-you-can-eat Kyoto-style home cooking and sweets at Gyatei
If you have been to Arashiyama during lunch time, you have probably seen a long line of people waiting to get to eat at Gyatei, maybe the most famous buffet-style restaurant in the Arashiyama area. They offer over 30 different types of dishes, like yudofu, namafu wheat gluten, chirashi (scattered) sushi, deep-fried pork cutlets, curry, and on the dessert side: warabimochi, pudding, and other sweets. The dishes change seasonally, and they have great, tasty dishes for each of the four seasons of Japan. There is often a line in front of the restaurant, but I’m sure that their dishes are worth the wait. Time to taste some Kyoto-style home cooking!
