Kiyama

  • Private Rooms
  • Children-friendly

Kiyama has earned a Michelin star within a year of opening. Experience kaiseki cuisine which has redefined the basics of water and dashi stock.

Quietly located on the first floor of an apartment building, a 5-minute walk from Subway Marutamachi Station and close to the Kyoto Imperial Palace, is kaiseki cuisine restaurant Kiyama.

Kiyama has drawn attention to itself after earning one star from the Michelin Guide soon after opening in April 2017. Owner Yoshiro Kiyama is a skilled chef who trained at Wakuden for 16 years from age 19, of which 10 years were spent as head chef. When opening the restaurant, Kiyama heard that there is a waterway with delicious water running through near the restaurant. He then drilled a well for use at the restaurant and so began his use of delicious spring water. Something else that Kiyama is particular about is the basic of Japanese cuisine: dashi stock. As guests enjoy watching the chef shave dried bonito, he uses a fragrant and clear dashi for the soups. Each dried bonito block is tasted, selected by the level of saltiness and acidity, and 3 types of bonito blocks are blended to balance the taste.

Courses are on the menu for both lunch and dinner, starting with sayu (water boiled until white), then dish after dish which incorporates seasonal ingredients and the ultimate stock. Guests can look forward to dishes with an interesting twist which change with every visit, like the uni (sea urchin) and egg bowl. Light tea is then served to finish. All the dishes are matched with and served on various wares, from Japanese and Chinese antiques to those by current artists. Chef Kiyama loves alcohol, and keeps a collection of 20 to 30 types of Japanese sake and 80 bottles of wine in the wine cellar at all times.

The interior of the restaurant is based on wood, creating a clean and cozy atmosphere. With 9 counter seats, two private rooms which can accommodate 4 to 7 guests and 4 to 6 guests, Kiyama is ideal for dates, business entertainment, dinner parties with friends, and other various settings. Why not come and experience the depth of kaiseki cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.

    The meal is really wonderful, and service is very kind even we don't understand Japanese language, they still try to translate English to introduce every dish. My parents and I have the great time in this lunch. Very strong recommend to go to 木山 to enjoy the beautiful and amazing food.

    直前にも関わらず個室で落ち着いた中、季節の食材を堪能させて頂きました。御飯も各種?飽きが無く、美味しくて、ついつい食べ過ぎてしまいました。 また訪問させていただければ、と存じます。よろしくお願い致します。

    一品一品が丁寧で美味しくて友達と「来てよかった、また行きたい」など話しています。 会席料理を食べに行くのは初めてで作法もわからず少し不安でしたが個室に通していただき少ない人数での食事でしたので気を張らずに食べることができました。 料理を提供する間隔がもう少し早ければしめのおかわりもできたかも、と思います。 旅行の大切な思い出になりました。 また行かせていただきます。

    大変美味しくいただきました。グルメの友人があれほど喜んでくれたことはありません。京都に来た時は是非とも予約を入れて欲しいと言って帰って行きました。 どの料理も深い味付けに舌が喜んでいました。素材も素晴らしく、またそれを生かした料理の数々、程よい給仕、また利用させていただきたいと思ってます。

    We were extremely satisfied it was very very VERY good. Exceptional attention to detail and the food and service were superb. I will definitely go back. 10/10. We had a dry Sake from Yamagata which was incredible (it had a green label and yellow mountain on it). If there is any way you could find out the name of that Sake from the restaurant that would be much appreciated.

    遠遠超出我們期望的好吃,主廚的ㄧ舉一動都很俐落專業卻又不急不徐,我們吃了2.5hrs卻ㄧ點都沒發現,上菜的速度與食材的介紹都掌握的非常好。 每道菜好吃的非常平均,代表菜單的設計的完美。 ㄧ定會再光顧!
