Learned difference between sushi and sashimi! Food was great . Ordered steak hibachi lunch with side of crunchy tuna rolls. Salad was less than desirable. Sushi was good . Steak was very juicy and flavorful. Veggies and rice were tasty as well. Even the side soup was yummy. The soup that came with the sushi was not the greatest seemed... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and the food is always amazing. However on a busy night it might take 15-30 min to get a table. Great sushi!

Great experience in having Hibachi style food. Food Cooked in front of you. Ambiance good, atmosphere good, neat but little noisy place (from other tables as chefs are performing). Only sauces adds taste to the cooked food. Taste does bot blend though. Its an alternative to Shushi. Pros: Fresh food, Ginger sauce w/salad, Saki (Japanese Wine H/C),Fun, Service, Ambiance, Hibachi... More

We came here with our daughter who is a vegan. We had never been to a Japanese restaurant before and this was an amazing experience. The hibachi chef was extremely charismatic and engaging. The staff were friendly and also catered for our daughter's request.

First of all, this restaurant is not bad. The atmosphere inside is really nice, with a beautiful hibachi area and other tables of a more conventional nature surrounding the hibachi area. It had all the bells and whistles covered from an appearance standpoint - a very appealing place. Regarding the food itself, I try to rank places with an eye... More

Ordered takeout from Kyoto while in town and was disappointed all around with the service, the atmosphere, and the food. I had called in my order and when I arrived waited in line at the front for two other couples to be seated before speaking with the hostess who directed me to pick up my order at the bar. I... More

I recently took my 85 year old dad for some father-son time. We were seated right away with about six other guests. The waitress was attentive. The grill chef was amusing - right down to the sake sampling (special care was given to dad - a very respectful gesture). The hibachi meal was excellent as is typical with most hibachi... More

Four of us went for dinner, and sat at a 'regular' table - not hibachi. We ordered a tempura appetizer, all had different entrees from the kitchen. All were excellent. The yakitori sauce was uninspired, but the actual skewers were tasty. All of the different sushi was delicious, and the bento that my husband ordered was an amazing value -... More

My sister and I had no idea what we wanted for lunch or where we would eat until we saw KYOTO. We initially thought it was a different type of restaurant, but after looking at the menu and prices, we decided to have a hibachi meal here. It was delicious! The service was friendly and fast. This place is immaculate!... More

We stopped here after a very long drive for a late lunch/early dinner. There were three of us at a hibache table. We all had filet mignon. Delicious! Very tender and delicious. We were absolutely starving but still could not finish our meals. I can't wait to go back next time I am in Buffalo. Staff was very friendly. It... More
