Husband at and wife team, Kiyo is a master chef. Very small and hard to get into on weekends. The best in the desert.

Whilst on vacation in Palm Springs, my wife and I met a woman travelling solo so we decided to all go out for dinner. My wife found this little place in a local review guide and we decided to give it a go as our new friend Betsy had visited Japan during her college days. We had Tempura and Beef... More

If you love Japanese food, you know it is not cheap. You know that real Skilled Japanese Sushi Masters have taken an oath for food safety and quality that is not ever done by any sushi chefs I know of, of other cultures... So, if you like cheap sushi and can stand to eat whatever fish that might not be... More

We first found this truly rare, one a kind sushi restaurant several years ago. If you like bargain sushi, or sushi on a conveyor belt, or sushi "all you can eat", or a menu FULL of rolls stuffed with anything, please do not eat here. It is NOT for you. Kiyosaku is a RARE find. Truly the highest grade sushi... More

I eat sushi all the time, and all over the world. This place has very mediocre food. The prices are outrageous! I ate dinner alone and it cost me over $100.00. I eat a normal amount. There are way better places in Palm Springs. I walked out very ticked off. Don't waste your time or money.

I have to disagree that Kiyosaku is not worth the price....you absolutely get what you pay for! The quality of the fish is Grade A, they use ONLY Alaskan King Crab (Kiyo's Original Grapefruit dish is a MUST!) and Whole Grain Fed Prime Kobe Beef........like that of Matsuhisa or Nobu where you would be paying double still what the prices...

I used to recommend Kiyosaku to people coming to Palm Springs, and that was perhaps because the two previous times I went I didn't pay. However, recently I went in for dinner and discovered that the prices were crazy. As one example---they charge $16.50 for a spicy tuna hand roll --- $16.50. For that price, I thought it had to...

First, yes it is more. Expensive than the typical cheap Korean run all-you-can eat sushi place or the sushi people probably now buy at Costco or the supermarket. And no, they do not have all the Americanized sushi rolls that use fried ingredients to customize to American tastes. But what you'll find are simple fresh ingredients that tastes delicious. The...

The food was both contemporary and authentic. I had not been sure about getting fresh fish or sushi in the desert--but we learned that it comes in fresh from L.A. to Kiyosaku. We often eat Japanese food and were pleasantly surprised to have such great cuisine and service in a place that's a bit out of the way--but worth the... More
