The dishes only have their names in Japanese, but as this is a buffet place, it should be easy enough to choose what to take. They also have English-speaking staff, so no worries there.

Story & Recommendation
Miyako Yasai offers a wonderful buffet of organic vegetables
Often in Kyoto, it feels like you are not eating enough vegetables. But luckily there is a place in Kyoto where you can fix this, Miyako Yasai Kamo. The restaurant located in a stylish old town house offers seasonal vegetables grown in Kyoto, and it’s so popular there is often a line in front of its doors. They offer all kinds of vegetables and foods such as fried chicken and Hayashi rice, and for lunch they also have pita bread! And what’s best, you get to eat as much as you want! There is something for everyone here, and while the food is healthy, it’s also delicious! So, let’s see what they have to offer!

Salad bar
Salad bar
The salad bar here is one of the most popular aspects of this restaurant, as should be evident from the Japanese word for vegetable, yasai, also being in the name of it. The choices you have change seasonally, but they also have some great salad dressing such as yuzu-citrus and grapefruit, among others. These salad dressings together with the fresh, seasonal vegetables make this buffet an experience you won’t forget.

Kyoto-style home cooking
Kyoto-style home cooking
Here you have all kinds of dishes representing Kyoto home cooking, like dried strips of daikon, hijiki-seaweed, freeze dried Koya-dofu, bean sprouts in a pork bones soup, and of course macaroni salad. I especially liked the Koya-dofu, the pieces were big and juicy. Be sure to also try hijiki and soy beans too, they’re healthy!
3Let's Try!
Hayashi-curry rice
Hayashi-curry rice
Hayashi and curry rice are both Japanese classics that are served in every home in this island country, and with these two dishes, the taste never lets you down. So it’s no wonder that the combination of these two dishes at Miyako Yasai also tastes great. The dish tastes great as-is, but an even better way of eating it is to top it with vegetables such as tomatoes and shishito peppers. They use quality Japanese rice which tastes great, adding to the culinary experience.
4Let's Try!
Fried chicken with a curry sauce
Fried chicken with a curry sauce
Japanese fried chicken is a classic that most people love. And for those who want some more protein with their vegetables, there is no better choice than fried chicken, or kara-age. The fried chicken here is covered with a Kyoto-style curry sauce, making the dish better fit the style of this ancient capital. After having a serving of salad, how about eating some kara-age?

- Order Tips -

Because this is an eat-all-you-can type restaurant, some people take too much food, and can’t finish it. So be sure to take only as much as you can eat, and after eating, remember to return your plates and cups.
