From Kaiseki Yoshiyuki to Yoshi

Kaiseki Yoshiyuki opened in 2012 and focused on serving traditional, full length Kyoto kaiseki meals. For 2018, we decided to reinvent ourselves in order to allow us to appeal to a broader audience who would like to experience true Kyo-Ryori cuisine. With this in mind, Yoshi was conceptualised to feature the same Chef, same skills, and same un-erring devotion to quality and precision while becoming more approachable to our diners.
