1st they seem to care-- but they need to do a good scrubbing of the place--- employees are good not great-- when you are tipping for a hibachi experience you want it to be fun-- food is plentiful -- they charge for extra yum yum sauce-- Kyoto was the first hibachi in Tupelo until Mt Fugi came into town and...

I've only eaten sushi at 4 other places. But Kyoto is by far the best place. AND it's the only place that offers my favorite sushi roll! The CURLY SUE!

This is a nice place to eat. Staff is friendly, food is hot and very tasty. I was surprised at how nice the decor is inside- you would never expect such a cozy ambience judging from the outside of the building! Tempura is delicious! Great teriyaki shrimp too. I find myself wanting to come back every week!

The first time I went to Kyoto I enjoyed the Hibachi Chef's show. That was really cool and the food was really good. I particularly love the hibachi chicken, rice and sauteed vegetables. One thing that I did notice is when sitting at the side tables instead of grill side the vegetables are more done, which I prefer) than they... More

We found this place at the end of a mall area. By choosing the Hibachi service we new the dinner would take some time. The problem was with our server who was inefficient, distracted and downright low. The meal came with soup and salad which are usually served almost immediately after ordering. Ours came just after the cook started cooking,... More

Went here for lunch due to the proximity of the restaurant to my hotel. Food was average, expensive for the food you pay for.

Getting food from the hibachi - the standard fare of rice or noodles, etc, is about what you expect. It's good. Ordering sashimi from Kyoto - not so much. While it tastes great, the portion sizes are pathetic - about half the size of what you get anywhere else in town.

We have been twice and probably won't go back. The food was not all that great and the table was sticky which is something that nobody likes to see in a sit down place. The service wasn't the best on the last visit and all in all not worth my money.

My wife and I ate here one night while in the area on business. The service was slow even though they were not very busy. The place smelled like it needed a good mopping; the smell of fermented soy sauce permeated the whole restaurant. The food was good, especially the seafood lover's roll.

The hibachi and sushi are both very good. The sushi rolls are great. Get a few different ones to share among the table. The Halloween roll is a fave.
