Service: Very kind and attentive
Equipment & facilities: Spotless clean overall. Beautiful washroom. Entirely non-smoking!
Strong points: Top-class udon cuisine!
People tend to think that all Japanese cuisine restaurants in Kyoto are expensive. Well, this is a big misconception spread by some unwelcome media to say the least!
Okakita is actually famous all over Japan and is mentioned in so many magazines! But it is really reasonable considering the superb quality!
The whole establishment is not only spotless clean but also entirely non-smoking!
It even has a cute little Japanese garden!
Dragon’s order: “Tentoji/天とじ”/large prawn tempura with udon in egg soup!
Hot and so appetizing!
Don’t be fooled, the prawns are big!
My order: “Hamo Tenpura Oroshi Udon/はも天ぷらおろしうどｎ”/yempura pike eel with cold udon in oroshi style!
So appetizing and a complete lunch in itself!
Those vegetables make for such balance in color, design and taste!
Extravagant pike eel tempura!
THE priority restaurant for our next visit!
