Square Meal Review of Shimogamo ?

Named after the famous Shimogamo Shinto shrine in Kyoto, this cute little Japanese gives off a serene, contemplative vibe with its austere interiors and sweetly courteous service. The kitchen turns its hand to most mainstays of the traditional repertoire, from gleaming sushi platters to teriyaki skewers and hibachi-grilled specials. In between, build a meal from gyoza dumplings, vinegar-tinged salads, sukiyaki hotpots, clean, crispy tempura and bowls of udon noodles. Prices seem very fair, especially as a great deal of effort goes into the quality of the ingredients and the beautiful, arty presentation – note the sashimi arranged on bundles of twigs over ice. Shimogamo also scores with its impressive saké list, which runs from everyday tipples to high-end premium versions – although you can drink affordably by the flask.
