Mizai
Makuzugahara, Maruyama, Gion, Kyoto, Japan
+81 75-551-3310
Last year’s rank #29
Chef: Hitoshi Ishihara

Nestled on the leafy hillside of Maruyama Park in Kyoto’s former geisha district, this three-Michelin-starred restaurant embodies discreet Japanese kaiseki kappo dining at its finest.

Approximately 16 seats surround the lacquered wood counter where chefs deliver exquisitely presented dishes of well-balanced flavors. With only one sitting each evening starting at 6pm sharp, Mizai ensures an intimate dining experience steeped in Japanese tradition.
