Sumiyaki Toriko | Loved by Locals in Kyoto


A renovated Kyoto townhouse where you can enjoy charcoal-grilled yakitori. The main seating is at the counter, where you can watch the owner grill the yakitori right in front of you. The atmosphere is somewhere between that of a high-class restaurant and a popular restaurant, and is appreciated by both young and elderly customers.

The yakitori at this restaurant is extremely satisfying. The reason for this is the large portions. All the dishes are generally large and offer good value for money. Orders are for single items only; there are no course meals. This is because the owner wants to make it easy for customers to enjoy the food.

In addition to yakitori, there are other recommended a la carte dishes, so ask the owner when you visit.
