Service are really slow and the staff was very rude. Some are pretty good but too small for the price. Some of them are clearly frozen. I could just fry at home “frozen appetizers”. Know that they charge even for hot water.

We heard about the dish, okonomiyaki, on a pbs travel show. So, we set out to investigate who made it in Pittsburgh. We chose this restaurant to try it as it was reviewed as the most authentic. We started our evening Japanese feast with a...few side dishes, steamed edamame with the house chili sauce, seaweed salad, daikon salad, and our son had the takoyaki (octopus fritters). All the starters were delicious and our 13 year old son loved the takoyaki. For dinner, our main dish consisted of regular okonomiyaki and my wife had the hiroshimiyaki. Our son and his guest both enjoyed yakisoba (fried ramen noodle) one with squid and one with chicken. Everything was delicious, presented perfectly. Our waiter, Roger, made it a great experience. We definitely will return to this place.More

We have just returned from a vacation in Japan and thought it would be fun to have some okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake). Teppanyaki Kyoto does a really good one, with an authentic Japanese atmosphere and really good service. We will definitely be returning.

Having been to Japan several times, this is the most authentic Japanese restaurant I've been to in the Burgh that shows everyday Japanese food and atmosphere. We come here several times a year. You can sit at the counter like at an izakaya (Japanese bar)...and watch the chefs work their magic. There's also wooden booths and chairs seating area, as well as more private booths and Japanese style sitting areas (aka tatami mat on the floor). The chef and his wife are great people who have put a lot of effort and dedication into presenting customers a wide variety of Japanese drinks, from plum wine to Okinawan beer to nigori to soft drinks, that are hard to find at area liquor stores. The food is always high quality in taste and presentation, from noodle dishes to okonomiyaki (think a giant dinner pancake with whatever fillings you'd like) to bar-style Japanese dishes for sharing like fried chicken, dumplings and edamame. Service can be slower at busy times, so don't come HANGRY. Prices are what I'd expected for this style of place, not too expensive. Don't be afraid if you're not into 'exotic dishes' - there's something here for the adventurous AND the meat and potatoes sort of person.More

We loved this place and, if we would eat here again in a heartbeat. First off, the atmosphere was nice. We sat in the back in a tatami-room, and people out front can see the chefs working. We tried two drinks (cassia-oolong and a CHU-hi)......I will say here, check prices and volumes, because our friend got an imported beer at it was $15. Our drinks were much more reasonably priced — not saying it’s not worth it, just don’t be surprised. For food, we split a yaki-onigiri, yakitori set, and okonomiyaki, and a mochi for dessert. Everything was tasty and flavorful. We were pretty full, but I honestly felt like I could have eaten another whole okonomiyaki myself, it was that good. Our friend had the yaki-soba and said it was quite good, too. Waitservice was a little sporadic, but there were several large parties out front and we were in no rush, and we told our server as much. Wish we lived closer, because we would happily eat our way through this menu!More

Wow! This place reminded me of the Japanese restaurants back home in Seattle! Large selection of Japanese beers, but a bit pricey at $12-15 each. The food was delicious and they have seasonal specials. The portions are just right! You're full, but not so full...you are uncomfortable. Parking is on street. I didn't realize it at the time, but my clothes smelled like food the next day so wear something that needs to be washed right away! We had a party of 8 and they would only split the check 4 ways so beware if you are going as a large group and want to split checks!More

Good food. Service good. When we entered the restaurant was busy and there was only one other non-Oriental couple in the restaurant. The people with me are American living in Japan and they really enjoyed the food. I enjoyed drinking a Sapporo beer. My wife...had and enjoyed her "beef bowl" (japanese word not available at this time.) One order was for Hiroshimayaki (japanese pancake with option of shrimp inside). tasty. The web address is Teppanyoki Kyoto. The restaurant is located in Highland Park.More
