Servers and cook were great. White sauce not that good and the quality of the meat / shrimp was also not great. They do not include noodles.

We drove 2 hrs 44 minutes to our favorite hibachi restaurant in harrisonburg va.it is probably the best anywhere. I ordered shrimp and salmon fried rice and vegetables. Ricardo was our chef and he prepared some of the most delicious hibachi i ever tasted. Everything was wonderful. The salad and miso soup were equally delicious. The server was sydney and... More

I've had hibachi all over the country, from NY to CA to FL and in between, in most places they add so much salt and soy sauce that the food ends up so salty you cannot taste the individual flavors. At Kyoto, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they used just the right amount of everything to provide delicious... More

We usually go here for a special occasion--we live nearby. Lunch is cheaper, food options fewer. We prefer going for dinner and enjoy it when the restaurant is almost full. The chefs seem more animated. Sometimes at lunch we're the only ones at the table, and the chefs aren't really into cooking for two old people. We usually get the... More

Not bad for a small town. I have had better. Service was a little slow refilling drinks. Broth was watered down, could taste chlorine from water. Probably will not visit again if I am in this area.

My co-worker and I always look for great sushi when we travel. We were pleasantly surprised at the sushi this restaurant created. It also was very reasonable. The sushi chef was very nice and made our experience very relaxing. He stopped by the table and made sure we were happy with our selections. If ever in the area, I will... More

While here in the area vacationing, we decided to go out to dinner to celebrate a belated birthday for my husband. We enjoyed the hibachi table preparation & show. We also enjoyed sushi, which was fresh...they had a nice variety of different rolls. Staff was pleasant & attentive. To top it off, they sang happy birthday in English & Japanese... More

We always go back to this place when we want to eat good! The food is great, the show is always interesting, and now the cooks know us very well! Avoid weekends when JMU frats have their mingling parties, or other major JMU events days, or you will have to wait a looooong time to be seated! I recomend you... More

We ate dinner here after my granddaughter participated in JMU Band Day. It was her birthday also. Our food was delicious and everything was fresh and cooked right in front of us. We had a good variety of entrees--chicken, fillet, shrimp, and scallops. Our cook was entertaining, skillful with his tools, and recognized my granddaughter's birthday several times. Our server...

Without a doubt this is my husband's and my favorite restaurant! We travel all over the country and are always anxious to get back home to Kyoto's. We have tried other Japanese restaurants, but none can compare to Kyoto's in Harrisonburg. The food, service and atmosphere are all top of the line. We enjoy meeting other folks from the area...
