Went to Kyoto for the first time for a girls night out. I did not sat at the Hibachi tables, just the regular ones. The waitress was so nice and attentive. Bar tenders where very nice and helpful. The food was delicious, we got everything from sushi, seafood, desserts the works! Good food, amazing atmosphere and overall great experience.

We had a group of about 14 meet there on a Friday night for dinner. Place was very busy but they have a nice bar so we had a few drinks. Bar service was great. Drinks priced very reasonably. Had about a half hour wait and we were seated. They take your orders in advance and make sure your set... More

Our review is for the a la carte, not the hibachi. The cost was a little pricey, but the food was amazing. We enjoyed everything from the shared appetizers to the main course. Meat was flavourful and tender and the veggies freshly grilled. Rice and udon were good too. Had no trouble getting green tea refills. Would go back next... More

Sorry folks this place does not rate very high with me. The food was OK at best but nowhere near where it needed to be for the cost. It's like a high-end Chinese takeout place that performs an act for you. If you want to see somebody flip some knives and spatulas while they throw alcohol on an open flame... More

I'm not impressed by the food at all! We've sat at the hibachi several times but chose a table this time. The food is so basic that I could do better and I have no background in cooking like this. I didn't even want a take home container. The server didn't smile once. Never again!!

This was my very first Hibachi experience and I could not have asked for better. The cook was as funny as he was skilled and the portions are enormous and extremely reasonably priced!

Excellent food and entertainment. How often do you have 12 year old wanting more broccoli. Recommend the shrimp and scallops

I went in with a group of 5 on Saturday evening. Our hibachi chef was terrible. Our food was under seasoned, steak over cooked, veggies still raw. The show was kept to a spinning egg and volcano onion stack. Mind you the table next to us was yelling "More Saki, More Sexy" and having one hell of a time. I... More
