Came here after the chef at the Iron Grill place down the street did not come in. My wife and daughter wanted sushi so I came hoping for some decent chicken. They really loved the sushi. My teryaki chicken did not taste like teryaki. It was ok, just not very flavorful. The place had a cafeteria feel to it, but,... More

I come here whenever I am meeting up with someone that likes sushi. You always get a salad and soup included. Then you pick what you want off the paper placemat. It's not overly fancy, but it's always good. And if you want to treat yourself - the lobster sweetheart sushi is wonderful.

The place has the best sushi of any place around but the ambience is lacking and it's not conducive to staying very long, and that's a shame.

What a remarkable change since my last review. In the interim, I have probably dined here 4 or 5 times and the change has been absolutely remarkable. I had the Bento Box with chicken, tempura, California Roll, and rice. Excellent. I also had sashimi of Salmon and Eel. Wonderful. Nice thick slices, and the Eel was warm, as it should... More

Kyoto is a place I frequent every couple of months. It's out of the way for me, but it's probably my favorite sushi place here. You don't expect much so far from any ocean or any fresh fish market, but it's still very good. I find I can get much more pure dishes here, without some of the extra fillers... More

I eat here an average of twice per month. While I admittedly can't speak for truly high-end sushi, Kyoto hits the spot and I think is among the best in the NE Cincy suburbs. The portions are generous, the fish always tastes fresh, and the prices are good. My wife doesn't eat sushi but does like their other Japanese dishes... More

Okay, it's not Vancouver sushi... and certainly not Japan sushi. But for little old land-locked Ohio, this place hits the mark. Reasonable prices, great taste and quality. Fast service sit down or take out. Generous too - they'll throw an extra roll your way if you hit order minimums. My go-to for Japanese food from now on!

If you like a mango sauce with most of your sushi, this is the place for you. Service mediocre at best. Everything pretty sweet and sauced up. Not for purists.

We had a group of around 8 eat lunch here. Prices seemed reasonable for lunch for Sushi. We enjoyed the food.

Wow. I was really excited to try this place but our waitress was horrible. First we placed our sushi order and I asked if they carried egg rolls, she said no just sushi. Then I turned my menu form over and they did have them. I placed an order of edamame and 2 sushi rolls. They came back bringing only... More
