A firm favorite in LKF

The food at Kyoto Joe is consistently delicious. Although the portions are on the small side the quality is outstanding. I tend to go for a set “business lunch” and get to enjoy super fresh sashimi, Berkshire pork rolls, prawn gyoza etc The miso soup here is also delicious (often I find this... read more

Used to be a old favorite, but the quality and especially the service are now terrible! Won't be going back if I can help it.

Purple Rice Ebi Maru Maki - it was ok and the rice is too sticky Beef Wasabi Mayo - beef was pretty good but didn't have the "wow!" effect Spicy Ramen - it was good but... More

Recently had dinner at Kyoto Joe in Hong Kong - what a great experience! Very creative food, great wine and sake list. Not a bad bite the entire evening. Sushi was all outstanding.

The sushi is top class for Hong Kong, and the service is top class for anywhere. Not cheap, but hey, when doing Sushi cheap isn't what I look for. Will go back when in the area.

Looking for a sushi restaurant which has great service ,great food and friendly staff ?, then go no further than here. Good spacing between the tables with a good lunch set served by an efficient staff. Food tastes good and is cleanly presented. Pricing is reasonable and won't offend. If you are in a rush , then you will like... More

this was a miss for us. we missed out on a booking at tokio joe and our concierge suggested we give kyoto joe a try. this restaurant is just around the corner from its trendier cousin but misses on ambience. it may have been that we were early (7pm) but we were the only customers and only 2 other tables...

Good quality sushi, good service and a pretty decent location. It does get a little loud at lunch, but the rush dies down pretty quickly. Prices are a little high for the amount & size of sushi and sashimi, but the quality is high too. All in all a pretty decent spot.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
