Overall Rating


Went here for dinner on recommendation from this app. The owner/chef was quite stressed and initially not that helpful, but we waited and he was able to confirm what ingredients were in the dish, and that nothing with gluten is cooked in the oil with the falafels. I had falafel, rice, and salad, without the dressing but with tahini. Everything was really tasty. Limited options but was a good option for dinner.

I was so happy to find this place. I can’t have dairy, eggs, or soy, in addition to gluten problems and eating has been a mess. The owner was very helpful and spoke English. I actually got take away in addition to my meal. I have celiac, but I was in pain from a previous contamination so I can’t speak to the safeness for celiac.

Overall Rating


We discovered this small restaurant on our last trip to Kyoto and visited several times. The owner is Israeli but speaks great English. They have a number of GF & vegan options available and everything was very tasty. I always carry my own mini salad dressing and soy sauce bottles anyway, so I could add my own sauces just to be sure. Great find as there aren't many gluten-friendly restaurants in the north of Kyoto.

Celiac friendly?
