It is our pride and honor to provide unique dishes and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere created by the fusion of Kyoto culture and French cuisine within a renovated traditional Kyoto residence. Having been listed consecutively in the Michelin Guide as Michelin 1-Star since opening in 2012, Head Chef Maeda is an acclaimed culinary expert who studied and trained in Chinese cuisine for 10 years at a renowned hotel and then at the world-famous 3 Michelin Star restaurant Hajime.
The rustic yet refined effect of the cultural blend of Japanese and French that can be felt in the atmosphere along with original and innovative French dishes that incorporate only the finest Chinese and Kyoto ingredients make MOTOI the must-try restaurant in Kyoto today.
