Set in an old wooden house, Kado specialises in katei-ryōri (home-cooking). Dinner is a set course of seasonal dishes (such as grilled quail or crab soup). At lunch there's no English menu, so your best bet is the カド定食 (kado teishoku ), the daily house special. Bookings are required for dinner; the restaurant has a wooden facade and a white lantern out front.
To the right of the entrance is a standing bar, where you can order dishes a la carte, paired with sake.
