Restaurant details

Our family has been regularly going to Kyoto since they opened. Jason used to be the manager and was terrific and inviting. When he left a few years ago, it became very robotic and hectic feeling. The sushi is STILL very good and well-priced. Some of the specials are amazing---try the Tuna Pizza as an appetizer, but it's lost that warm and local feel. Many of the staff barely speak English and often bring appetizers and dinner together, no matter how many times you try to ask them not to. Carry-out is a terrific option.

Seriously this is the best sushi in the city. This place is small but constantly packed and it's just utterly delicious. Their food is just heaven on a plate...or sometimes a boat.

Kyoto wins this one hands down. I don't know how they can have such high quality sushi at such a low price. It allows a budget-friendly sampling of many different types of sushi, sashimi, and maki. My husband even likes their warm entrees, but I would never pass up the chance to eat the sushi. They are always packed and that's the best review a restaurant can get! My go-to restaurant whenever I just want something that makes me feel good.
