“Sorely Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

After reading all of the awesome reviews and looking at their menu online we were really excited to go and try their food. It was an awful idea. My dad took one bite of his yakisoba (a normally easy to prepare and awesome dish) and pushed it aside. There was a horrible sauce that tasted like nothing but salt on it. The refunded it but it was still a horrible experience. My boyfriend ordered the same thing and complained about a weird feeling in his mouth. My mom order general tsos chicken and said she felt it was probably microwaved. My sushi was just average. I don't think that I'll give this restaurant another try.

“Dinner & a show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Well, actually, it wasn't dinner, but lunch - but we still got the 'show'.
The table, which seats about 8 people, has the grill in the center, and the cook/chef comes out with your order and does his fancy show with all the cutlery while preparing your food. Very entertaining!

The food was excellent, and although somewhat on the pricey side, was still a good quantity - not too little, and not too much. We didn't leave hungry, but we weren't so stuffed that you had to roll us out of the restaurant :-)

A great experience, and we were happy with the meal & the service.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Traveling through Bellingham a stumbled upon this place. Time for dinner and was not disappointed. Great food and a good show at the same time. Had better fried rice but theirs was not bad. I will eat there again next time in Bellingham.

“Fun, fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I really like Kyoto. The food is good, it's entertaining and its great to meet new people at the communal table. Our family enjoys going here because we can all be seated at one table and enjoy the show and each other.
