“Good food but busy. Average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We get there twice: the first time because it was close to our hotel; the second time because we wanted to visit the veggie restaurant in the same building but the elevator left us in the same place so we couldn´t escape.
The food wasn´t so bad and probably that´s why it´s always busy. The service is not the best and that´s why we decided not to come back. It looks like locals use to go there so probably it´s not the worst place though.

“Would not bother again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012 via mobile

Like a reviewer on Open Rice, we were subjected to cigarette smoke constantly wafting in from the foyer. Service was poor, have had far better Japanese food (also in modest establishments) and advice on dishes unhelpful. Main dish was meant to be a hot pot - cannot remember exact details but picture looked very appetising with a meat and tofu but instead of tofu all we had was a huge amount of onion. Final dish was gyoza and all it contained was raw chives....whole experience at odds with what we had expected - would not recommend or return.

“Most foods Japanese, they will have!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

We have been frequenting Kyozasa for the past 3 years and decided they must be mentioned in TA because in Hong-Kong there is an oversupply of Japanese Izakaya's and restaurants, but none will match Kyozasa in terms of the extensiveness of the menu, the authenticity of each item on the menu, the reasonable price for the quality you get, the heart felt service (especially from the Japanese owner and the other Japanese staff), the sufficient sake list, and the good food. You will find most things Japanese on the menu, be it Yakitori, Sashimi, Yudoufu, Tempura, grilled Sanma, Squid & Hokke, Onigiri, Karaage, Yasai Itame, etc. etc. And the amazing thing is that each and every dish is done very well. Mind you, it is Not an elegant dining place....so if you are picky about decor, forget it. But for any genuine lover of authentic Japanese food "sans flair", you will NOT be disappointed! It is also one of the restaurants most frequented by Japanese businessman eating with friends and colleagues at their own expense. It does not have what the top notch Japanese restaurants in the 5 star hotels in Hong-kong have (where businessmen would take out other businesses on company expense, or the extremely wealthy would frequent), but instead Kyozasa offers the Japanese "soul" food that every Japanese would have grown up with. You won't be disappointed! The menu has most of the traditional Japanese Izakaya items and more! Enjoy!
