A good surprise

We have been looking for good sushi in the Mount Vernon area and have either been disappointed or found the places just ok. We heard through friends to try the Kyoto Kitchen and we were glad we did. The menu seemed limited but we were able to get actually whatever we wanted, including fancy type... read more

I made a detour off I5 (from Seattle to Vancouver) to visit this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. When I overheard the waitress tell another customer "I'm not sure what happened but just a few years, we started to get really busy." I said to myself, humm, maybe that's when the glowing reviews started for this place? Living in a... More

Went there for dinner one night. Ended up getting an appetizer and leaving. There wasn't anything special and the prices were high. Cute little place. Odd layout. Not great service.

Love this memorable place! Everything I have tried has been super fresh quality and prepared/presented wonderfully. Truly a find. Excellent salads, vegatables (try the tempura or spinach),sushi, suyaki, noodle, seafood beef or chicken dishes...you really can't go wrong here. The atmosphere is great in winter or summer. A beautifully converted home and garden. Personable with white linen tablecloth/napkins service.

Lived in the valley for years had heard about Kyoto and had wanted to try it though we thought it was expensive. It was very reasonable and so good. Very fresh and tons of flavor. I had the Asian curry which was excellent. Then we had the berry cake for dessert it had fresh berries that where sweet. The cake... More

Food is superb and service very quick..we were served and out in 55 mins. You also have to be aware that in Japansese culture there are no staters and mains so everything comes together. We were seated in the private dining room which was downstairs but really nice. Staff are very friendly

We moved from King/Pierce county where there are much more Japanese restaurants than this area. Having found Kyoto Kitchen is such a blessing to us! It's such a nice cozy beautiful restaurant with very friendly waitresses/owners and serene/authentic Japanese décor. Comparing with Sakura Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar nearby in Burlington where we have been a lot too, Kyoto Kitchen... More

We've been here last Saturday after the visiting the tulips garden. The place is spacious and its not so crowded, we did not wait to have our seats which is another good thing. We ordered the kyoto chicken for appetizer, it is like a karage and it tasted so good that we ordered another one. For our main course, we... More
