This specialist in shojin-ryori (vegetable-based Buddhist temple cuisine) is owned by the same family as the legendary Daigo shojin restaurant, but the atmosphere is much more casual and the prices much lower. Formal dinner prix-fixe menus are still in the serious range - Y6,000-10,000 - but lunch starts at just Y1500.

There's also a very simple bar menu served from 10pm-5am, served along with various whiskeys, wines and shochu. (There's an Y800 table charge for bar service, and a 10% service charge for everything.) Smoking is allowed.
