We went to try the winter special, I having never experienced Japanese cuisine before wasn't too sure what to expect. The dishes were perfectly sized and paired. Loved the Edamame - delicious and perfect for between courses! The vegetable tempura is a must-try and the...More

Me and my wife visited Kyoto on Friday evening, and were absolutely delighted with what we would call the complete dining experience. Upon arrival, we were instantly made to feel welcome by the polite group of staff - a theme that continued throughout the evening....More

While the quality of the sushi is undeniably exceptional, it is not three times better than other sushi restaurants in Cape Town and shouldn't cost three times more. Throw in the wait staff's frosty attitude and...not worth it.

A rare gem tucked away in Tamboerskloof. The friendly and entertaining owner and host of Kyoto paid delicate and special attention to every detail. From the gentle trickling sound of the water fountain, soft lighting, subtle yet vibey tunes, to the most subtle and succulent...More

This is a great restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food amazing. You can get sushi all over Cape Town, but this is definitely the best I've found. Pricey, but I'd go again without hesitation. Top tip: try the green-tea ice cream & crepe...More
