Gion Moriwaki is a restaurant where you can enjoy all aspects of kaiseki dining
Gion Moriwaki just opened in the southern Gion area, which is full of fancy restaurants, in 2014. From outside, the restaurant looks simple, and if it didn’t have its dividing curtains on the door you might mistake it for someone’s house. The owner-chef of the restaurant has trained at some of the best Japanese restaurants and hotels in Kyoto, and this can easily be seen the dishes he makes; they look incredible, and even though the chef uses some very luxurious ingredients the prices of the courses are quite reasonable.
The counter of the restaurant is made from a cherry tree, and on it, you’re served seasonal dishes which reflect the change of seasons in Kyoto perfectly. This restaurant is very welcoming for firstcomers when you think of the area it is located in, and it’s great for both lunch and dinner, and also for those who have not had kaiseki before. The restaurant takes pride in their kaiseki cuisine and its Japanese taste and the taste of the dashi they use.
