Hyotei - Lunch Reservations

Hi there.
First time poster....

I was hoping to go to Hyotei for lunch, the full meal is a little out of my budget, or rather I want to save it for other venues (I'm a michelin junkie - annoyed that the Kyoto guide comes out after my viist in May).

Anyway - I was wondering, for the bento box lunch can reservations need to be made, or is it walkins only?

Thanks for any assistance.

  1. good question. i have never went to a nice Jap restaurant in Tokyo or Kyoto without a reservation first. why not just get your hotel to do it for you? details here
