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

The sushi appetizer was very good. The hibachi meal was typical and our chef did the normal stuff although his flaming volcano was weak. Meal was typical and decent but the server took too long to clear away finished plates. There was nothing extraordinary to set this Japanese steakhouse apart from all others but there were no complaints about the... More

We just wanted sushi take out. You have to go in and sit at the bar to order and wait for the food. It's a little awkward, if you don't want a drink! The sushi was very fresh, if a little expensive. We may try again, sitting down next time!?

I have given this restaurant THREE CHANCES! Here's one of my big pet peeves about hibachi places: it's not cheap and your paying for the "experience"... I get it. BUT... If I'm forking out money for the most expensive items on the menu I expect it to be consistent and done right. For all you seafood/shrimp lovers, you will understand... More
