Kyoto Restaurant Review

: Kyoto sports minimal d├ęcor, but what it sacrifices in aesthetic appeal it more than makes up for with quality food and appealing presentations. Patrons are seated family-style with other diners and the fare is prepared tableside. Entertaining servers intricately slice and dice, fire, flip, and smile widely as dishes sizzle, and then are assembled and served with fanfare. Traditional offerings range from teriyaki-seasoned meats to generous portions of yakisoba noodles, along with a variety of dishes featuring succulent shrimp, scallops and lobster. For anyone seeking a more intimate setting, seating options to partake of sushi and sashimi are also available. With choruses of happy birthdays being sung around the room, there's a comfortable feeling that this place is really just like home. Parking is tight and reservations are recommended, especially on weekends, but don't let these factors be a deterrent.
