Excellent hibachi and would definitely go back! Flavors meld together perfectly, the chef was fantastic - had a nice sense of humor and knew how to put on a show! The service, however, was horrible! The waiter took our order and didn't come back until the end of the meal. People at the table needed drinks, etc... and he never... More

We ate oiutside on a beautiful summer night and enjoyed wine and sushi -- sushi was great, fresh, nice variety, reasonably priced. Wine list offered variety of choices in many price ranges. We chose not to sit inside because it was dark and a bit loud, and why waste a beautiful summer night inside? Service was helpful and attentive.

The new location is beautiful. You definitely need reservations on a weekend. The chefs are wonderful and the fried rice is very tasty.

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.

This is by far the best Hibachi Restaurant if are visiting Mc Henry. You do not have to travel anywhere else if you are craving for Japanesse Food. The best sushi I've ever had. They used the best quality of rice sushi and its all affordable. The staff are very friendly and always create a good sense of humor to... More

I really like Kyoto because you have the option of eating at the sushi bar or going with a group and eating Benihana style where the chef creates your dishes on a flaming cooktop. Sushi is fresh and beautifully presented. Prices are reasonable for the quality and average wine price per glass is $8 . My only complaint is their... More

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
