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
  • "Very hard to get the attention of anyone willing to take a second drink order. The food was not a great value for the money but that's not what you expect at a Tappan yakki place. Most of our party was entertained by the non-Japanese chef."

  • "Every time I have been here the food has been fantastic! Reservation for 2 people. We arrived to find out there would be a wait, regardless of our reservation. After 30 min we were seated. We were the last ones seated at our table, our order was taken quickly, and we expected the chef to begin shortly there after. However, it took almost 50 min before our chef arrived at our table to START cooking. The whole experience was ~2.5 hours, and we even decided to skip the included desert out of fear of how much longer we'd wait for it. I expect this type of restaurant to take a bit longer, but every time I've been here there always seem to be unnecessarily long delays throughout the experience i.e. seating, food, checks, drink refills."

  • "Our family loves coming here as the menu has something for everyone. Even my picky 13-year-old craves the teriyaki steak! The sushi menu is great, too. The cocktail menu is outstanding. I enjoy the teppan shrimp appetizer so much that now I just order teppan shrimp as my meal. The kids menu is perfect for little appetites. The chefs are always entertaining. The wait staff is attentive, polite and very informative. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We ordered dinner plates that were outstanding. The hot soup that came first was wonderful and simple. It was followed by a cold ginger dressed salad that was yummy. The chef was entertaining although he looked like he was tired of the routine. He made a really cool picture of a rooster out of eggs. The fried rice he served up was also very good and all of that was topped off by a perfect main course. I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly! My husband had spicy chicken and noodles and loved his too. We came with our six month old at his bedtime (6:30) and nobody seemed to mind while I stepped away to the corner to rock him to sleep. It was a great time overall and we'd definitely go back."

  • "After making a reservatio through opentable we had to wait 10-15 past or reservation time to be seated only to wait another 45 minutes for our "chef" to arrive. Soup is dishwater, salad if from a bag with a very odd dressing. Tepanyaki is always a fun show and usually tasty due to copius amounts of butter"

  • "Went here for a dinner with my nephew - a hungry 21 year old. We were seated within 15 minutes and the waitstaff was very attentive. We both had the "Prince" (a good dinner value with chicken, beef and shrimp) and a bit of sushi on the side. The sushi was fresh and well made. Our table was all adults and our table chef set aside most of the antics and concentrated on serving the food quickly and efficiently. He didn't speak much, but when he did, he was friendly. The table next to us was a birthday celebration and we enjoyed watching them have a great time. Recommended for a casual date or celebration time."

  • "I usually come to Kyoto Palace maybe around once a month. I brought my mom this time and it seemed like the staff was just bored. I told the hostess it was my mothers birthday and they forgot to acknowledge it until I brought it up which was after the bill was already delivered - the waitress had no enthusiasm and did not smile the entire time. Was very awkward and disappointing"

  • "Kyoto palace is inconsistent with food taste, but tonight's dinner was flavored well....it is always a good place to go for something special with the kids."

  • "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."

  • "Fresh. Fun. Entertaining. Teppan-style. See you soon."

  • "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
  • "This is Teppanyaki without all the MSG and salt. We really love good Teppanyaki but hate the MSG after effects. High quality food Teppanyaki experience, NICE!"

  • "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."

    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
  • "If you've never been, request Jose and definitely order the fried rice!! They are my favorites @ Kyoto."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "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 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 "

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "We have never been disappointed. The food cooking show is fun and the food is good."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
