Reviews for Kyoto

Best Sushi Ever – I've had a lot of sushi in my life, and Kyoto is definetly the best I've had, and everyone I've taken there (which is a lot of people) agrees. The Sara roll is particularly excellent.

Good sushi, fun atmosphere, just remember what you ordered – With the right mindset Kyoto is fantastic. I understand the people who gave it a bad review but they are wrong. Yes, the waiters sometimes forget an order and sometimes the rolls fall apart, but they give great portions, the sushi pieces are always fresh, and their appetizers are very creative. I would recommend the jones roll, baxter roll, and sashimi roll. The box pieces are very big too...

The crunchy roll isn't so great. But overall, Kyoto is great for people who aren't stuck up and can go with the flow. I definitely recommend it

Don't waste your money here. – So disappointing. This place is nothing like its pre-storm presence. Service is unprofessional and unconcerned. Food is not even average for sushi. Don't bother.

Poor Service...Very rude to customers... – Had a difficult experience with the manager--reported it to the owner who made no efffort to rectify situation for 15 of us that wanted to eat...

Exceptional food and service – The ambience at Kyoto is inviting, the people are accomodating and the sushi is excellent. Kyoto is my new favorite sushi bar. I make a visit at least once a week, for the past 4 months and nothing has changed.

Neighborhood sushi joint offers Americanized Japanese in a friendly, low-key setting. – The Scene
White walls and blond-wood tables and chairs, along with Noguchi-inspired craft paper lampshades handmade by the chef, give the restaurant's interior a fresh feel. The casual mood is set by the clientele, many of whom live nearby. Servers are warm and responsive, and always happy to share menu recommendations.

The Food
Chef Mitsuko Tanner, daughter of a fish wholesaler and a sushi bar owner, knows how to judge a fish. But even in this Gulf state, sushi-quality fish is not always easy to find. Keep that in mind when ordering to avoid disappointment. Try the crunchy Rock & Roll and the massive Tabo roll, which looks like a four-course meal. Any of the cooked dinners--chicken or beef teriyaki, or any of the tempuras--go down easily. Appetizers like the baked salmon rolls and pan-seared gyoza are also a good choice for raw fish-phobes.

LOVE THIS PALCE – I walk to Kyoto about once a week. The people are always friendly, the food is always fresh and the crunchy rolls are the best in town (trust me I have been around to try them all). I have not had one thing here that I disliked!
