The Perfect Restaurant to Find Comfort in Kyoto.
Gonzo, an Izakaya meets Udon Noodle Restaurant in the Demachiyanagi area.
Our restaurant is located right between the straight line connecting the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the Shimogamo-jinja shrine.
Since ancient times, it has been said that “Gods dwell” between a line, and have been the subject of worship and respect.
The area between the straight line fostering “good relationships” connects the Kyoto Imperial Palace to the Shimogamo-jinja shrine,
a World Heritage.
The area of Seiryu-cho, Kamigyo-ku exists as the center of Kyoto city.
Since long ago, udon noodles have been enjoyed as being the “harbinger of longevity” .
Furthermore, due from the image of udon noodles being“long and thick,” it has been offered as a gift to pray for “long-lasting marriage”.
The prominently white-aesthetic exterior of our restaurant is designed with the motif of a clean and pure udon noodle.
Customers from various countries come and enjoy our dishes to pray for safe travels, for the recovery of friends and acquaintances from illness, for a chance meeting with a special someone, etc.
Aside from our udon noodles, we also offer close to 100 types of appetizers and dishes.
