Next to the famous Asian Restaurants in Lugano HKyoto really stands out. A small modern restaurant with fenomenal food. The foodrange goes from sushi to Chinese specialities. The food not only looks great it also tastes fantastic. I have visited HKyoto two times in two...weeks now and both times I was amazed about the quality of the food. Also the restaurant owner is a lovely lady and the rest of the staff also makes a great impression. I already recommended the restaurant to friends and family and also they have great Feedback. I will definitely come back to HKyoto and enjoy more delicious food.More

We had the crispy duck delivered to our home. It was evidently freshly made and very nicely presented. A feast of a Sunday dinner!

As a picky eater, it’s been extremely difficult to find a good Asian restaurant in Lugano. To say I was blown away by the food here would be an understatement. Personally, I have never eaten more in one sitting than I have at this restaurant....The food was incredible, service was amazing, and the experience by itself would be worth coming back. Can’t wait to try new dishes next time I visit, and would definitely recommend Hkyoto to family and friends. Sendo uma pessoa que não come tantos tipos de comida, tava sendo muito difícil achar um restaurante Asiático bom em Lugano. Dizendo que eu fui surpreendida pela comida aqui seria um eufemismo. Sinceramente, eu nunca comi tanto de uma vez como eu comi aqui nesse restaurante. A comida tava incrível, o serviço era maravilhoso, e valeria a pena voltar aqui só pela experiência. Mal posso esperar a experimentar os outros pratos aqui, e com certeza recomendaria Hkyoto a minha família e amigos.More

My friend and I ordered some sushi from here and we were super impressed. We've been here before the pandemic and the service was phenomenal, and we knew we had to order. I don't usually write reviews but it was just that good. We're both...pretty picky in different ways and found many options we liked, and the little arrangement it came in was so cute. Even when ordering delivery the presentation is so pretty! I can't wait for another excuse to order from here again, and look forward to going here when restaurants open again.More
