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

This place is local to me but I would actually chose to go here than to one of the bigger, fancier Japanese restaurants in Manchester city centre - the food is very authentic, the setting cosy and quaint and the prices very reasonable. I've been several times and the service is always great, just the right level of attentive. The... More

Best place to eat out in Withington. Great food at very low price. A huge range of sushi that is made by a talented chef, right before your eyes. Brilliant for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Also very good set menus for even better value. Great to take away also. A huge range of healthy food with good portion sizes.... More

The food is really good, the prices are cheap and the staff are friendly. Contrary to another review on here, I have seen no problems with hygiene - and I have also worked in the trade for years so probably know what I'm talking about

Absolute delight to dine in. Anyone who can't enjoy delicious great value food without some sort of over the top dining area should beware though although to be honest; 'what are you doing in Withington to begin with?!' Come and enjoy a treat that will have you coming back time and time again. The lunch time bentos are amazing also... More

I went with a friend and my two kids for a meal. before we were given the table we've been asked to go to the reception which was placed next to the food display and the kitchen. I couldn't help to notice that the display was not tidy and clean, the food appeared just like it had been thrown there... More
