We end up here every other week or so! The hostess is super friendly and attentive, Chef Jeff remembers us, makes great suggestions (live scallop), and the Sushi is fresh and delicious. We usually choose a mix of nigiri, mixing our favorites with stuff we want to try, and finish with a couple simple rolls, like yellowtail or tuna. We... More

I'm not a clean freak, but noticed dirty/dusty environment at sushi bar. Take a look around and you will see the dust on the decorations, plants, and appliances. Soy sauce stains on sushi display area and wood bar top. Tip jar was covered in fingerprint smudges. A turn off. Sushi was okay, sushi pieces on small size. Paid more here... More

Place is clean and cozy, and food is reasonably priced and delicious. This is one of my favorite dining places when I used to live in the area - I used to have dinner with friends here at least once a month. Service is prompt and polite too.

When I want really good sushi, I head to Kyoto. The staff is very friendly and the sushi chefs will always great you with a bow and a greeting. The in-house maki rolls are imaginative, and the sashimi portions are generous. The calimari tempura is out of this world.

While in a nondescript strip mall, the sushi at Kyoto is some of the best I've had -- certainly in the greater DC area. The atmosphere is very casual (laid-back) but the sushi is top-notch. The staff is always pleasant. I have traveled to Japan several times and regularly enjoy sushi. Kyoto's sushi rivals some of the best I've had... More

I love the food and friendly service here. When I returned months after my first visit, the server asked how my daughters were (she had remembered them being with me on my prior visit weeks before). It has great variety -- good sushi (which I love), but if you are bringing a non-sushi lover there are plenty of choices and... More

Man, DO NOT ORDER RAMEN. It's literally the $0.10 top ramen kind but minus the seasoning packet. It was so bad. No flavor, no meat. It should be taken off the menu or re-labled "instant ramen." I only finished mine because I was freezing after a long day outside in the cold and because it was $10. Bleh.

The food, for the most part is really good. If you go here, I highly recommend any of the fish (sushi, sashimi) or the Katsu. My husband loves their Katsu Don. The Bulgogi and the Teriyaki are okay, nothing to wright home about. The desserts are amazing. I especially recommend the tempura banana with ice cream. Really yummy. It is... More

They have a great variety of sushi and other Japanese items. Very aesthetically pleasing - the sushi boats were impressive. This is one of the better restaurants in the neighborhood - I will definitely return.
