Booked dinner here for a family of 12. The staff had everything ready upon arrival and we had our own hibachi grill for our party. Lin was our cook and he was amazing. Tons of food tosses and tricks and the sake pours kept coming. The food was amazingly delicious and cooked to perfection. We did have a lot of... More

My friends and I went to Kyoto on Friday for one of the girl's 21st birthdays. All of us were over 21. We were ID'd at the door, and then the manager came over and ID'd us again. The person manning our table refused to give anyone at our table sake. He said "maybe tomorrow". We asked to speak to... More

I eat sushi quite often and have tried many restaurants throughout the country. I would rate this restaurant as average for service and decor and a bit below average for the sushi. The service was pleasant, efficient and fast. I found the booth seating to be uncomfortable and the staff was accommodating to allow me to switch to a conventional... More

Went to Kyoto for my birthday with a group of 10 family members. This was the first time any of us had been and we ended up having a really fun time. Our chef was a lot of fun and really made the experience for us. The food was typical Hibachi, nothing really special but tasty. We tried some of... More

This was my second time coming here. The food is on par with most sushi places I've been to. I have to agree with another reviewer that our waitress seemed pretty bored by the job and uninterested in giving good service. I ordered my go-to sushi items: shumai (shrimp dumplings), a spicy crunchy crab roll (I didn't see it on... More

Have been to many Japanese restaurants on the East coast. Place was clean and had a nice look. We didn't want to wait for and go through the hibachi presentation, so ordered same meal from the menu and ate at a table. The food came out quickly and was very good. The shrimp were large, fresh, and delicious. The portions... More
