We had an incredible evening at Kyoto Garden Sushi. The restaurants atmosphere is so serene that it feels as if you are completely isolated from the hustle and bustle of town. This along with the excellent service makes it a special place to dine. We...More

I had high expectations for this restaurant but was very disappointed after my first visit. The food tasted ok was not very authentic. And it’s severely over priced for very usual items. I don’t think I am likely to visit again.

Really surprised this restaurant pops up on so many lists as the best sushi in Cape Town, the food was very expensive and very disappointing. Despite booking a table two months in advance we were sat at the bar and the owner was rude to...More

Tried the winter special menu wich was great. Loved the miso soup. The rest of the menu is definitely overpriced but they seem to get away with it due to the great sushi.

After a diet leaning heavy on meat in the early part of our trip, my wife and I were in the mood for some good sushi. Fortunately, we were not disappointed. Kyoto has a relaxing setting and the sushi was outstanding. It’s definitely pricier than...More
