A relaxing and elegant setting in which to sample lovingly prepared Japanese culinary traditions dating back centuries, the always hospitable Kiyomizu seems to know a thing or two about the art of Zen. Wood, stone and clean, sharp lines abound in this most serene of restaurants, with similar attention to detail of course being paid to the dazzling array of sushi, tempura and sashimi dishes, this being a menu that’s clearly the work of someone with a deep knowledge of Japanese cuisine. Dishes at Kiyomizu are largely very light and flavoursome, with a welcome focus on deserts, so often an afterthought in many Japanese restaurants.
