My husband and I went for lunch because we had a Groupon. I had a VIP roll with shrimp tempura and eel but found it to be a smaller than I expected and soft without the crunch I enjoy in these rolls. My house salad was poorly made with a little lettuce and 2 tomato quarters. It was awkward to... More

We brought friends to share in our Groupon. It was nearly packed on a Thursday night. The good: sushi rolls. Dragon Roll, Volcano roll, Red Storm, California and Yo-Yo all on brown rice with sesame seeds. Seriously, each bite brought happiness. :-) The bad. Only one server. This can easily be overcome with a good attitude, but our server seemed... More

Kyoto is some of the best sushi in the area and an above average Japanese dining experience, not overly fancy or fussy, just good. The sushi menu does have some unusual combinations and several item on the a la cart menu that you won't find at the average sushi joint. Not the best sushi bar for sitting at to watch... More

I started with a sashimi combination - salmon, tuna, and yellowtail. It was excellent all around. This was the freshest sashimi I have had in a long time. I also got the dumplings which were good, but nothing special. The ingredients were there, but they were too greasy and felt they were overcooked. The main course, Chili Tofu, was okay.... More

This place is authentic and delicious! Prices are a bit high for Pike Creek (almost the same amount as Mikimotos in downtown Wilmington), but the atmosphere is more intimate and relaxing. Love this place!

Excellent, truly authentic, Japanese restaurant. Sushi, sashimi, Chirashi and Tempura were all absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Very attentive and friendly service (includes a steaming wash cloth when you first arrive). It does not look like much from the outside at all. But it is definitely worth it to step inside. The inside is beautifully decorated with lots of wood.

This is a great place if you live near by, I wouldn't travel to come here. Prices are fair and the quality is good.

This is the best sushi restaurant I have been to. The food is outstanding. From the soup to the salad (both dressings are fabulous and I wish I could get the recipe!), to the sushi (the Dragon Roll is unbelievable), to the tempura which utilizes panko bread crumbs. There was only one server and the tables were full, yet she... More

Wonderful! Service was excellent, location is easily accessible, interior is serene and to top it off the food is FABULOUS. I have a new all time favorite sushi roll... the Dragon Roll . I would also highly recommend the grilled calamari appetizer.
