Another C exceeded our expectations. Each course was delicious and exciting to try. It was a fabulous Christmas dinner we are sure to remember.
The food is absolutely fantastic. They were so fresh and good taste. The desert “New York cheese cake” is a must try!
I don’t know if there is a problem with the ventilator, the smoke was quite heavy and my wife almost cried when we were eating.
Service is ok, but next time please ask the allergy food of customers.
Highly overrated. Not worth it. Better experience if you sit at counter. Do not sit at table or window counter.
Great food with friendly service and wonderful wine pairing. Extremely accommodating to a veggie guest. Thanks a lot Dan!
Probably our best meal in japan - which is saying something as we have eaten in many of the best over the last two years!
We had a wonderful experience at Another C. This has probably been our favorite dinner on our recent trip to Japan. The food was truly a reflection of modern Japanese food, with interesting combinations of textures and flavors. Dan is a great host and made us feel welcome and looked after as well.
One of the Best Dining Experiences I had. Absolutely to recommend if you visit Kyōto and want to have a great tasting flavor and in the same time getting in touch with the chef.
Another C was a highly enjoyable experience. In an intimate setting, you are most likely going to be sat the counter, and have an up close and personal experience with the Chef, Owner, and sole proprietor. Chef Dan literally does the whole operation himself. It was nice chatting with him, but he was careful not to intrude on date night at the same time. I am a pescatarian and don't eat meat, he easily accommodated my needs when we got there. The food is a combination of modern and traditional Japanese, the flavors were explosive and seasonal. I would highly recommend making a reservation for Another C if you are planning to be in Kyoto for a dinner.
We had read rave reviews about the food and ambiance at Another C and felt that it would be the perfect venue at which to celebrate our last evening in Japan. We are no strangers to fine dining having enjoyed meals at a number of Michelin-stared restaurants around the world.
The food at Another, while not spectacular, was very good as we expected it to be. However, we had booked the Chef's Special Dinner at 15,000 yen (+ tax) and our booking of this had been acknowledged in advance by e-mail from Another C. Our bill for the evening was for less than this amount. It appears that we were not served the menu we had desired and anticipated and that this was done without any explanation.
What really caused our evening to be less than the magical and memorable one that we anticipated was the inattentive service that we received. Our party of four was seated, not at the counter, but at a separate table. Thus, the hoped-for observation of and interaction about the food with the chef wasn't possible. It seemed to us that those seated at the counter were holding engaging conversations with the chef. On arrival we were not shown to our table but verbally directed there by the chef as he worked behind the counter. After about 10 minutes he presented to our table, not to welcome us or tell us about the evening and the food he would be preparing, but simply to ask what we wanted to drink without suggesting what the drink options might be. Our only other interaction with him was when he personally delivered one of our courses to the table and when we paid our bill at the end of the meal. Other service was provided by an assistant who was unable to answer many of our questions about the food and whom we had to flag down whenever we wished water and additional servings of wine.
We left saddened that our experience at Another C fell short of our expectations.
Serata meravigliosa, cibo di altissima qualità servito e preparato dallo chef. Locale intimo, massimo una dozzina di posti. Essenziale la prenotazione. Lo chef parla un perfetto inglese, avendo lavorato a New York per molti anni. È una cucina che coniuga elementi tradizionali della cucina giapponese di alta classe con reinterpretazioni in chiave occidentale. Fantastico il sushi servito su fragranti e croccanti fettine di pane in cassetta preparato dallo chef. Ottimi spiedini di Kobe, zuppa di coda, e altre delizie preparate e servite di fronte ai vostri occhi. Selezione vini limitata ma di qualità, prezzi fissi molto ragionevoli per la qualità del cibo servito. Locale incantevole al quarto piano, arredato con gusto e discrezione.Questo giovane chef merita fama e fortuna per la passione con cui si dedica a regalarvi delizia e grazia.
Excellent experience. 6 seats at the counter and one chef. There is no fixed menu and Dan creates wonderful food in front of your eyes. The cuisine is a fusion of locally sourced food with the chef’s experience in NYC.
