Really good but not authentic 6/13/2011

Value, food and staff are all great. But it's not really a ""Japanese"" restaurant. They serve lots of Japanese dishes but do lots of non-traditional combinations and techniques. Still alot better than other sushi places in the city but not as good as the Japanese-owned ones. more

Kyoto Sushi Bar 3/9/2011

The sushi was very good & we are going back for more today. The Hot Box from the specialty menu is outstanding.\r Ordered two appetizers, the Stuffed Shiitake Mushrooms & the Beef and Asparagus Roll. The beef & asparugus was bland & tough, they took the item off our bill. The mushrooms were wonderful, I will definitely get them again.\r The waiter was friendly & helpful. \r \r This resaurant will be on our favorites list for as long as we live in New Orleans. more

Delicious 2/7/2011

Kyoto's is delicious- great variety of sushi, but sometimes can be too pricey. I wish they would lower the prices a bit so I could eat there more!! more

Food OK Owner Rude 4/9/2009

Owner, Sarah does not know how to talk with customers and is rude. I would not advertise for this restaurant again. Pros: Food is good Cons: Owner Sarah is rude more

Omg it's great!! 2/25/2009

I wish I could like it... 4/13/2008

I've had friends that have worked there... but I'm sorry... it's just awful! The original chef/part owner is no longer there... and man has the quality gone down! The wait staff is slow, forgetful, and they don't know the menu. It was mediocre before the storm... but now it is just unbearable. The last time I went there I was served raw fish that had definitely gone bad (it smelled REALLY fishy and was starting to change color). Even though I sent the bad fish back, it STILL showed up on my bill (as did another item that we never received). Owner/Manager completely unhelpful.\r The rolls fall apart.\r \r However, items from the kitchen are ok. Pros: Interesting Lampshades, kitchen appetizers Cons: Fish, Sushi, Service more

One of my favorites 2/12/2008

Kyoto is certainly one of my favorite sushi places in New Orleans. With a perfect location, start with their fresh squid salad. Spectacular special house rolls as well as fantastic typical rolls. After you're filled with sushi, walk next door to Creole Creamery for ice cream! Pros: Location, food, service, atmosphere Cons: Parking can be a hassell uptown more

One of the best sushi places in town. 7/19/2007

I lived in New Orleans from 2001-2003 and Kyoto was a frequent favorite during my time there. I was thrilled to see that it had weathered Katrina. Though the fish isn't quite as good as I remember, Kyoto's is still among the best sushi places in New Orleans. Recently, I went back with a group of 10 high school students and two other adults from Oregon on a rebuilding trip to New Orleans. We were seated together in the back of the restaurant, which was a welcome change from other small restaurants that insisted on splitting us up. The service was very attentive and the students enjoyed their meals - though many of them ordered from the dinner menu and the dishes came out over a 10 minute span. Service from the sushi bar was much prompter. When we had a mishap over the tip on the bill, the staff graciously corrected the error more than a week after the fact, an act that has permanently won my loyalty to this fine uptown restaurant. Pros: Easy parking in the lot across the street, green tea ice cream Cons: The wait can get long if you show up after 7 more

Best Sushi Ever 6/29/2007

I've had a lot of sushi in my life, and Kyoto is definetly the best I've had, and everyone I've taken there (which is a lot of people) agrees. The Sara roll is particularly excellent. Pros: Delicious food Cons: Parking is tricky more

Good sushi, fun atmosphere, just remember what you ordered 4/16/2007

With the right mindset Kyoto is fantastic. I understand the people who gave it a bad review but they are wrong. Yes, the waiters sometimes forget an order and sometimes the rolls fall apart, but they give great portions, the sushi pieces are always fresh, and their appetizers are very creative. I would recommend the jones roll, baxter roll, and sashimi roll. The box pieces are very big too...\r \r The crunchy roll isn't so great. But overall, Kyoto is great for people who aren't stuck up and can go with the flow. I definitely recommend it more

Don't waste your money here. 12/7/2006

So disappointing. This place is nothing like its pre-storm presence. Service is unprofessional and unconcerned. Food is not even average for sushi. Don't bother. Cons: Not clean! more

Exceptional food and service 4/12/2005

The ambience at Kyoto is inviting, the people are accomodating and the sushi is excellent. Kyoto is my new favorite sushi bar. I make a visit at least once a week, for the past 4 months and nothing has changed. Pros: ambience, inexpensive more


I walk to Kyoto about once a week. The people are always friendly, the food is always fresh and the crunchy rolls are the best in town (trust me I have been around to try them all). I have not had one thing here that I disliked! more
