    We celebrated my birthday dinner and it was our best dinner in Tokyo. Chef Dan made us feel very welcome and taken care of and even shared some of his personal whisky with us. We couldn’t recommend Another C more

    Was so glad to find this gem of a restaurant on our visit to Kyoto. Made the reservation about a month in advance and it was worth it. The chef prepares the food right in front of you and there are only 10 counter seats. The food was amazing especially the grilled eel which we loved. Would highly recommend just for the experience!

    I wanted somewhere nice to celebrate my birthday in Kyoto and I was not disappointed. I couldn't have asked for a better evening and was treated amazingly. The food of course was fantastic and the accompanying Sake was a perfect compliment. I'll return when I'm next in the area!

    Some of the dishes were good but not excellent (the first five courses in particular), and two courses were dry and lacked flavor. Ingredients were not very fresh and were lower quality. Service was okay but the chef did not introduce every dish so we were not always sure what we were eating. At the end of the evening, the check was delivered un-itemized and just a random number on a note of paper. Later, I was charged a “no show” fee in addition to paying directly at the restaurant. I found this very dishonest and frankly frustrating. I would like to think this was a mistake but I am not sure actually.

    Wonderful meal. Eight varied courses, featuring in-season ingredients, served at a nice gentle pace over three hours. Chef is fluent in English and fun to talk to as he prepared the meal in front of us. (There are just eight seats at a counter.) While not inexpensive, you could spend a lot more in Kyoto for a multi-course meal like this, and we thought it was excellent value.

    We had such a fantastic meal here. It is small and intimate. You sit at a counter and watch the chef as he prepares your food. Although Japanese, he was raised in the US so he has a unique perspective on Japanese food. Plus, as we are American, it was a blast talking to him! The food is just exquisite and I would mark this as a must visit if you go to Kyoto.

    This was an incredible dining experience and the best meal we had in Japan! We would go back to Kyoto just to have dinner with Chef Dan again. We had 7 courses (including desert) and each one was tailored to our tastes. My husband contacted Dan prior to our dinner as we brought our 6 year old son with us, and Dan made sure it was an exceptional culinary experience for all of us. Each dish was exceptional, with the freshest ingredients and wonderful combinations of flavors. The eel and tuna were absolute perfection, as well as the steak, chicken and tomato noodle dish. The desert was hands down the best cheesecake I have ever eaten. The meal was Michelin star quality as well as the experience. We were on a 6 week around the world trip and this was our best meal!

    We had a wonderful time at Another C. Only about 9 people in the restaurant. We sat around the counter and all got to know each other along with the chef, who spoke both English and Japanese. We watched the chef cook a great variety of dishes which were a sort of Japanese fusion; everything was delicious.

    We had an awesome experience with Chef Dan at Another C- as others mentioned it is a wonderful, modern day version of the Kaiseki without feeling westernized. The food was amazing and innovative, the atmosphere warm and the conversation with Dan while he was working great - all suitable for the background story of why the restaurant is named Another C (you'll have to ask him when you dine there). In a city filled with some great places to eat, this is definitely worth the stop.

    We had traditional kaiseki the night before. Very lovely experience... However, Chef Dan Tominaga turned Kaiseki into a Micheline star experience. All of the dishes reflected traditional Kaiseki while reminding the diner of some other memorable food. The sirloin salad appetizer reminds you of a Prime Rib tasting. The Fried tofu dish reminds one of a French onion soup... It's not cheesy slight of hand, it is elegant and masterful use of flavor and textures!!! An absolute must if visiting Kyoto!!!
