  • Visitor Information

Aaron Burgess-Smith and Tony Lam, the people behind critically acclaimed Kanada-Ya have come up with a new concept for their latest Japanese restaurant, Machiya, named after the merchants' wooden town houses that once lined every street in Kyoto. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant is set over two floors with the restaurant on the ground floor and the bar downstairs. Beautifully presented with a light-wood counter, dark beams and modern decor in neutral tones, the bar is the place to go for late night traditional Japanese cocktails.
