Good Food, Fun Place

Enjoyed the menu selection, the plum wine, the cook was very entertaining. The only issue is the parking can get very tight.

We went to another hibachi restaurant that apparently is no longer doing hibachi, so this was a last minute substitution. We went on a Saturday night. There was no wait. The chicken was so dry and tasteless! I enjoyed the noodles and the soup but that was it.

Stopped in for dinner on a Wednesday evening - restaurant was busy but not crowded. I was craving some sushi and Kyoto is a very short walk from the Hampton Inn in Rockwall. Service was solid throughout. My food was good but as far as sushi is concerned it rated as average. I enjoyed a Jade Roll and Shrimp Volcano... More

I've been to about a dozen different Japanese hibachi restaurants, and this was one of the best. We walked in on a Saturday night without reservations and were seated within about 15 minutes. All of these hibachi restaurants are overpriced, and this was no exception, but... Our service was excellent, and the food was equally superb. I tried the flounder... More

I went to the restaurant about 2pm in the afternoon, so it wasn't busy. I sat at the Sushi bar as I was only going to eat sushi. Every sushi restaurant I have been to, I have received a sample of sushi, miso soup or edamame complimentary with my sushi order. Here, I received nothing but my sushi roll. It... More

We enjoyed going and it was our first time. The tricks from the chef were some I have seen many many times before....so nothing new there. The place is quite, but I don't like how fast everything was brought out. We were told the chef will be in and we can sit to have apps and drinks. We ordered then... More

They recently started serving ramen. It's delicious! Try the pork. The happy hour is the best in town for sure. We always stop in on Friday nights and sit at the bar. The sushi is the best in Rockwall, the fried spring rolls, gyoza, and calamari are all on point as well. You won't be disappointed.

Kyoto is a really great place, the food and service are usually very good. Unfortunately, as is the case in most niche restaurants, the same act can get tiresome after you've seen it time and time again. This restaurant is a bit more informal than Benihana's, which I believe does a slightly better job than Kyoto. Overall I would recommend... More

Birthday for my father. I've been to many Japanese sushi bars and hibachi mostly in the northeast where I'm from and this one is mediocre with average pricing or it seems. This is the first I've ever been charged 2.50 per person for the choice of fried over steamed rice. The fried rice is a quintessential staple to the presentation... More
