We went to Kyoto as a family for my mother in law's 80th birthday. It was such a great experience! 15 of us took up one whole hibachi bar area and the food, service and show could not have been finer. The staff sang a Japanese happy birthday song to my mother in law and even showered her with little gifts! She was thrilled. Everything was delicious (and I'm kind of picky about restaurant food), fresh and well-prepared, and the restaurant was immaculate. I highly recommend.
