We love their sushi! Best in town! We tried the hibachi side with the kids for the first time which was a lot of fun. Our waitress and cook were wonderful and the food was great. My only complaint was that I felt very rushed. I understand that it was a busy night and I'm sure they were anxious to... More

I went here with some girlfriends for a holiday girls' night out. While not the best place to chat because it is loud when they are busy, we had a blast with our hibachi chef. He did a lot of tricks (almost to the point he was cocky) - Flipping bowls and knives. Tossing food at people and cool fire... More

We stopped in for lunch and had crazy boy and and spider with some fried rice. Their food is always very fresh. I'm not big on the Hibachi side but their sushi is very good. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great food and good service.

Went here for the first time this past weekend with my kids. There are hibachi cooking stations with seating and regular dining tables. There is also a sushi bar area to sit. We sat in regular dining, but still had a view of the hibachi chefs preparing food....which was fun to watch! The atmosphere is very inviting. The staff was... More

Food is Japanese, of course, and they try to do a good job on the hibachi dinners but the best thing was the salad

Kyoto has been a favorite of my family and myself if I don't feel like cooking. The sushi is always fresh and outstanding. never had any complaints. Try the hibachi tables for any special occasion. You will enjoy everything on the menu!

I personally not like sushi but my family does and they love this place but they have great tempura so I am happy as well! They start out with a warm cloth to wipe your hands which is awesome. You can choose to sit in the hibachi room around a grill table and get a show or you can eat... More
