What To Expect

If you’re going on a trip to Kyoto, do yourself a favor and drop by the famous Kani-ya restaurant. Kani-ya means “crab house”. True to its name, the specialty restaurant features and heavily promotes crab-based dishes, specifically the way the denizens of Hokkaido make them. It’s hailed by the locals as the best crab specialty restaurant in Kyoto and one of the best in the whole country. It’s conveniently located in the Gion area and it’s near some tourist attractions like the Kanjo Museum, the Yasaka Shrine, and the Daiunin Temple. If you want to take a break from sightseeing, then there’s no better place to go. Inside the restaurant and specifically for this booking, you’ll get to pick from four different kinds of set courses and you’ll get to taste crab cooked and presented in a variety of ways, like as sushi, raw sashimi, tempura, tofu, and shao mai. As you feast on your chosen course, you’ll revel in the peaceful atmosphere generated by the traditional Japanese-style rooms. You’ll also experience Omotenashi, a style of hospitality like no other; the staff of the restaurant know what you need before you know it yourself. This is a must-visit restaurant for crab lovers both foreign and local.

    Relatively high-end Japanese restaurants, take off shoes, the restaurant is wooden floor and tatami, the environment is excellent, with klook appointment can eat in a separate room, privacy is higher. Crab meat dishes are good, in line with the price, but not too much accident, each dish will also have a waiter to introduce the side, also with a special sauce and utensils, very particular about. The crab meat is very savory, and it won't bring astringency in the cold dish and finish, but the sauce is also very special. The dish is also very good. For me who eats a lot, it is not enough to eat. It is heavy and not heavy. The day arrived half an hour early, but due to the appointment, the room was already ready, the cutlery and the front dish were placed, and the back cooking was on the road, slowly enjoying, the waiter was very friendly, and understood English conversation. Dessert is a frozen honeydew melon, and then I will send a hot towel again to wipe my face and hands. It is very sweet.

    Although I was told that I would send the meal slowly during the day, I didn’t come for an hour. I asked the waiter to go to the box and I was blinded. I really thought it was the worst meal I had ever had.
