We came here for my sons 7th birthday as we have come here for his Birthdays in the past. We had a new chef cooking for us & you would have thought he was "Speedy Gonzalez". He did not perform a show at all & all of our food was overcooked.... We were really disappointed that he did not engage... More

We always go here for sushi, but the hibachi steak house is very popular. On weekends there is often a wait. Food is great.

Kyoto is best-known for its hibachi tables, where the chefs put on a great show and customers have grilled meats and rice meals. I love that, and visit for the show at least a couple times a year. But what I've really come to love is their sushi. Their chefs have an eye toward delicate and subtle flavors, even in... More

Simply the best sushi around! I could eat there everyday. Never had a bad experience and have been going there for years! Celebrate every birthday and anniversary there! My husband and I also go with our kids. Great hibachi too! Love everything especially the golden shrimp and maki rolls! My husband and I even say it's better than Japoni downtown.... More
