Wonderful Japanese Food!

I am a bit of a regular, as I don't live too far from the restaurant, however, when I first moved here and saw the place I was apprehensive. It doesn't look like it is going to be the best quality of food from the outside of the building. But, wow. Just give it a go! Most authentic Japanese food... read more

Visited this restaurant as my bf and I were craving for Japanese food and decided to try this place out as the restaurant we frequent was fully booked. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated as per the type of cuisine. I thought the food was average.. I ordered miso soup to start off and it was quite salty. I asked... More

This is a gem of a Japanese restaurant. An oasis of calm with perfectly made authentic sushi & tempura in a sea of pound shops. Great family service. Cash only. Will be back again & again.

Kyotoya is truly one of those places you wish you had found many moons ago. As previous reviewers have said it isn't somewhere to go for style or decadence. Instead you get great value Japanese food, served in this family-run lock-up in a parade of shops in downtown Withington. You can pick and chose from the expansive menu, or save... More

Had the tempura chicken, beef noodles and katsu and every one was ridiculously tasty. I was just visiting a friend in the area but will definitely be travelling back there regularly to go to Kyotoya as much as possible!

It's January, you're back to eating healthily and what better way but with tasty traditional Japanese food. We ate at Kyotya last night for the first time (with friends who have been raving about the place) Let's be very clear, you are not going to Kyotoya for the high fashion location or decedant interior.... you are going to eat at...

Hard to put into words how fantastic the food is here. I'll be brief; You're getting a family owned and run restaurant from a Chinese chef who worked in Japan for many years. He's worked in many Japanese restaurants and is happy to converse with you in English, Chinese or Japanese (if he's not too busy!) on any subject your... More

Just went to this place as my brother lives nearby and is a regular. Very simply, this is the best Japanese food we've tried in the UK. The gyoza were fantastic and the vegetable tempura was excellentfire starters . We then had a range of dishes: vegetable katsu curry, Salmon samchimi and Mogo tofu. All of the dishes were fresh...

This is the first time I'd visited this place, and I have been keen to try some nice japanese cuisine without having to pay a hefty bill and this place fit both my criteria. Its only a small restaurant but the sushi did impressed me, it is very fresh and large portion in comparison to some of those I've tried... More

Although it may not seem like much from the outside we were pleasantly surprised with the service and fantastic fresh food. Ran by lovely people who obviously take alot of pride in what they do. Would recommend!!!
