So sad. Before they moved to Fullerton, we ate at Kyoto very often over a number of years. We were loyal patrons, as was my sister & her family. It was ALWAYS delicious. The environment was cute & cozy. The prices were fair...not cheap & not too pricy. The new restaurant is more Japanese steakhouse than sushi restaurant, with pricy... More

[BTW this restaurant has moved to Fullerton and Lakeview Ave] Great space; has a cool combo of the quality older architectural bones with a new higher end restaurant vibe. And details such as cutlery and china are a big step up from a more traditional sushi restaurant might be. All the food has a definite higher level of creativity and... More

Their dynamite appetizer and creamy avocado rolls are DELICIOUS!! Those two items are a must (atleast for me) when ever I go. I haven't been able to find those same items in other places, so always keep coming back for more. I've tried many different sushi places but Kyoto seems to be consistent in quality. For the price & location... More

But there is a little off-license (Liquor shop) just down the road past Prost! Loved the Karage, spicy chicken to start and the Sushi was good. Tempura, only ok but highly recommend the Mochi. They serve free green tea. Restaurant is nice inside and David, the server was very bubbly!

The Shabu Shabu was ok, but served by a distracted staff that needed to de called for drinks. The restaurant was in the traditional center but modern and impersonal.

Excellent quality, would recommend the Coyote Cocktail! Asparagus beef roll was average...recommend summer dragon and Fireball.

I dine alone a lot, and the service was attentive and quick. I had a Groupon, and for that price, it was worth it. The Creamy Roll is AWESOME and light - but not worth $17. They are regularly featured on Groupon, so I think they have adjusted their prices as such. It was really GOOD, but the prices are... More

Food is wonderful. Service was ok... The host wasn't very welcoming and the waitress was very busy. The waitress was very good at helping us decide on a dish we would like.

We eat here once every month or so and sit at the sushi bar. The food is consistently good and the service is always warm and friendly. My wife doesn't like raw fish but finds plenty of choices including their hand rolls which are beautifully presented and you can get real crab meat if you prefer. I opt to give... More

This is kind of an unusual review since we tried to go to the restaurant, left a voice mail and email and never got a return on either. When you start with bad service you don't get very far. We'll take our business elsewhere.
