A word from Kyoto Palace Restaurant
We are located in The Pruneyard Shopping Center in Campbell on the second floor since 1976. We are a teppanyaki restaurant where the chef "chops, dices and tosses your food right before your very eyes". We have the most skilled and entertaining chefs in the area. They will interact with you and your guests for that special occasion. It is a great place for birthdays, anniversaries, proms, graduations and best of all a great place to treat yourself to a fun night out. Enjoy great steaks, seafood and lobster. Also, enjoy the freshest and most exotic sushi prepared by masterful Sushi Chefs.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The chief did not do all the fun things that they normally do, it was my daughters birthday."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I had the Kyoto special, which consist of lobster, scallops, and filet mignon. Lobster was good, scallops were really thin, " 1/16 inch in thickness but tasted good, the steak was very chewy, both my wife and I had to spit out pieces that were tough. The cost was 42.00 which was not worth it. If I were to go there again I would order chicken and shrimp."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was very good although the scallops weren't prepared for one dish. We have come here several times and was glad to see that they updated their teppan tables or at least refinished them and what appears to be new cook tops. Our teppan cook however only did a couple demonstrations, i.e. tossed a couple items in his hat and had to be asked to make the onion volcano. There were 4 people in our group and one other person at the other end of the table. If the cook isn't going to "put on a show", you don't need a teppan table. So, was disappointed in the presentation aspect of dinner as this person was not a novice cook."

    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Went to Kyoto Palace for my daughter's 11th birthday, and she loved it!!! We all enjoyed the chef show and food! Next time we go, I'd be tempted to invite a couple of friends to ensure we get the table all to ourselves."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Not worth the money! Waitress barely checked in on us for anything. Took 15 minutes for anyone to come for drinks before dinner. Food over priced and just ok. Rice was very good. Not going back . For the price of this place-go elsewhere!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Always bring grandkids for their birthday here...sometimes with their friends. We always have a great time."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I have been enjoying Kyoto Palace for years and have enjoyed the service and food that we have ordered except on this past visit. All of the help seemed to be complaining about Wednesday's. Seem as if the regular staff has Weds. off and it really shows. Both in service and food quality, it just missed the mark. Looking forward to coming back on Fridays."

  • "we brought some friends that had never been before and the kids loved it. i really enjoy bringing kids there."

  • "Food and service were fantastic ! My sons favorite place. We had to get in and out in an hour so he could get to grad night . Everything was perfect !!!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The atmosphere was pretty noisy. The place was observeably dirty, with greasy fans and duct tape on ceiling. Food was marginal- shrimp tasted not fresh, chicken was thigh meat only. For the price i expected better quality meat. Service was good but rushed. Will go to benihanas instead!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The service was excellent. Much better than their competitors in the same market. The overall environment was very clean, unlike one of their rivals. Pricing was spot on but the flavor slightly lack that of others."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The food was good. The fried rice is great & tasted fresh. However i was expecting (hopeing) for a little entertainment & interaction with the chief. We were there for mothers day. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had a great chef but an absentminded server. She was more intent on bringing sake to the other folks at our table (who I guess were regulars???) and she forgot out rice, and hot tea until we reminded her. Teppan food was good - always the best way to have seafood cooked to perfection, but soup/salad was mediocre. Salad was watery and bland. Soup just bland. Our chef was the best part - not too over the top but entertaining and accomplished in cooking proteins and veggies! LOTS of little kids the night we went - annoyingly so! Ask to be seated in back room - quieter. Still better than Benihana but is heading toward that "chain-like" quality if not careful."
    Dined on 6/2/2013
  • "If you've never been, request Jose and definitely order the fried rice!! They are my favorites @ Kyoto."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I haven't been here in over 20 years and it was just as fun and the food was just as delicious as the last time I was here. My daughter actually tried the shrimp and LOVED it! This was a huge compliment to our chef. "
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "The food was good but it isn't Benihana's! The scallops were great and the rest went downhill from there. The shrimp and calamari steaks were rubbery. The steak was pretty good but the food didn't have as much flavor as similar restaurants in this style. The chef was great!!! In the area I'd say this place is number three. 1. Benihana 2. Nijo Castle 3. Kyoto 4. House of Genji/Cathy "

  • "Fantastic. We had reservations and did not have to wait. The owner poured Caampagne . He is always friendly. We always love dining at Kyoto palace."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "If your looking for a great place for dinner and some fun make a U turn and run while you can. My brother takes his girlfriend here for special occasions and always recommends that we go here. We took our mom for a mothers day dinner this past Saturday. I didn't complain because I was being courteous of my mother who hates complaining about anything. The cook was horrible. He was in a super bad mood and he never smiled. His cart was missing everything and he always had to stop and ask his not so good helpers to bring him things. He didn't make the rice into a shape or do anything fun. All he did was make everyone catch a piece of chicken and one weird looking volcano. For a bill of $200 for 5 people and bad service go else where."

  • "Great staff and just love Ashley!! It was my daughter's birthday and her friends really enjoyed themselves. "

  • "We had such a great time celebrating my birthday this weekend at Kyoto palace. It was my first time there, my girlfriend recommended it and all my friends agreed it was going to be a fun time. I'm so glad we went there because we had a blast definitely going back."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We always go here for any birthday work or at home. All the chef's are great and fun. Best place ever!!!!!"
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "We found the food to be bland and boring, just like the cooking performance. A manager was standing nearby most of the time, but did not seem concerned our empty drinks and long wait for a server. There are other similar restaurants who will give you more for your money. I won't be going back to Kyoto Palace."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The last few times that we have been to Kyoto Palace even with a reservation we have had to wait 15-30 minutes before being seated and then about the same before the cook comes to the table. They should either seat less parties without reservations or simply allow less reservations to be made. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We have never been disappointed. The food cooking show is fun and the food is good."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "we were looking for a restaurant open for Easter dinner for our family of 8, as our kitchen is having some work. Kyoto Palace was fun, not crowded (we went at 5:00 pm though - it filled up later) and the food was fresh and tasty. Our server was friendly and funny - he wasn't so sure of his English, though, and didn't engage us in much conversation. Dinner was prepared in front of us and was perfectly cooked. Nothing fancy - fairly simple menu. The fried rice is great. My only regret is that as soon as the "show" of cooking is over, so is, basically, the meal. The tables are in a U shape, so conversation and lingering long are not the rule here. Overall, nice dinner."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The waitress was mom existent, at least to my and my guests. The people at the other end of the table got two rounds of drinks and appetizers before we finally had to ask again for our drinks and appetizers. She asked the other family what they wanted for dessert and ignored me and my guest. She was horrible and I let her know in her tip. Normally if I am checked on at least once to see if I need anything I will tip at least 18-20% but she got nothing for ignoring us the entire evening. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Always a fun place to go for the family on birthdays."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Overall our family's outing was a lot of fun and the food was quite good. We are very puzzled about the $3.50 charge for fried rice when places like Benihana and House of Genji give you an option of fried or plain white rice included in the price of the lunch/dinner. Not all of us want plain ol' rice, but being charged nearly $4.00 for fried rice really seemed rather out of line and perhaps the management should reconsider. One thing to watch for is the chicken; I found a couple of pieces that were still quite raw and by the time I found them, the chef had already cleaned up the table and went away. I would have been fine with tossing it back on the teppan surface..."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "A fun restraunt to take a small group to. The chefs do a good job of socializing and get customers involved in the experience."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Made a 7:30 reservation, and didn't get seated until almost 8. Loud kids running and screaming in the restaurant was annoying, but thankfully they left soon after we arrived. The waitress provided us with 2 complimentary appetizers to make up for the experience. The chef was fabulous and made new jokes I hadn't seen/heard before. Overall, a good experience."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "rushed to eat and get out. Waitress was Not attentive - had to ask several times for her To come back for drink orders"

  • "I brought my husband here for his birthday on a Wednesday evening. I was surprised to see it so busy for a weeknight. The service was good and our chef did a great job of entertaining us. The noise level was very high though which made conversation a little difficult. Food was good. Overall, we had a very nice time."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The woman singing in the bar as we arrived on a Saturday night was L O U D. We waited outside so as not to listen to this noise. Table was fine, good location, far far from the bar. Tables are for 8, we were 3, but table company was fine. Our Teppan chef must have been under-trained. The onions were not cooked enough, everything was too salty, even our other table mates said this. Meat was tough and flavorless. To get a second drink we had to ask the busboy to have her return. It was a BD dinner as was indicated on the Open Table reservation, but apparently they don't read the comments. They did not acknowledge the birthday. We didn't say anything as we were ready to leave."

  • "I really enjoyed this place! The service was excellent and food was fresh! Great place for groups! Fun for birthday too. ! The manager even stopped by and gave us our doggie bags!"

  • "It is always a fun experience. Who doesn't like to play with their food. I cannot ever catch the fried egg in my mouth when the cook flings it to me. Food cooked to everyones liking."
