Yoshiya Oku no Niwa just might be the most Muslim friendly restaurant in Arashiyama
There are not many places in Kyoto where you can get as varied halal food as Yoshiya Oku no Niwa offers. And the place is not only for Muslims: besides their Japanese menu, they also offer dishes for vegetarians, and those with a gluten-free diet. While they don’t have a prayer room, they can, if they have the space available that day, give you a small space to pray.
The way the restaurant goes out of its way to make everyone feel comfortable is really something you rarely see. This restaurant could become a role model in Kyoto since their food fits many dietary needs and they not only have their menu in English, but their staff also speaks excellent English.
All of the food mentioned below is halal.
