For those after a Nara speciality which is sushi wrapped in persimmon leaf (kakinoha sushi), Hiraso is definitely the place to go to and there are many set lunches to choose from. We had:

Yaezakura set (¥3785) - A very substantial set consisting of Nara's speciality dish as well as sesame tofu, side dishes, grilled Ayu, chagayu (tea based porridge), Japanese Pickles and Japanese sweets. The deliciously sweet Ayu had been boiled until soft, then lightly grilled so it can be eaten from head to tail, bones and all. The Chagayu was light and we really enjoyed the roasted rice tea flavour.

Mahorobo set (¥2300) - Consists of a side dish, sesame tofu, kakinoha sushi, sashimi, miwa soumen and seasonal dessert. This set certainly showcases the delicious persimmon leaf wrapped sushi that this region is famous for.
