“Food was good but beware of autogratuity”

Ranked #73 of 106 Restaurants in Olive Branch
Cuisines: Sushi, Japanese, Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 15, 2010

We visited Kyoto while traveling through Olive Branch and were very surprised when we got our bill that they automatically add an 18% gratuity if you eat at the hibachi grill. We are regulars at Japanese Steakhouses eating at them at least once a month and in various cities and states across the country, this is the first time experiencing the auto gratuity for a family of 5. The gratuity was also taxed which was a first. The food was good but portions were small for the kid's meal compared to other places we've been and they didn't get soup or the veggies with their meals, however french fries were part of the meal. We also had a California roll and a rainbow roll and we felt they were pretty good for middle of the country sushi.

Words can not express how terrible the sushi is. Even a novice sushi eater would know to run far, far away to downtown Memphis to get something exceptable from Blue Fin. I can't imagine why anyone is still eating there. Osaka is equally as bad. If there is sushi to be had in O.B. it should, as a rule, not be had. EVER.

I stopped in to Kyoto 1-2 times a week after moving to Olive Branch, but prior to the opening of Bangkok Alley and Osaka Japanese cuisine. Some days, the food would be very good and the service would be very slow. Others, the food would be sketchy but the service would be right on point. They never seemed to have everything right at the same time. With that said, the Navy roll (pronounced Nahh-vee) and the seafood delight are out of this world if you like cooked rolls. For uncooked, sadly, I am yet to find a roll that is past "OK". The rainbow was a huge letdown.
