Kyoto Palace delivers!
Kyoto Palace always manages to deliver a quality dining experience!
To start with, the waitstaff does a fine job offering suggestions for its diners. They are attentive, courteous, and prompt - there is no need to ask for anything twice! Armed with good knowledge of the menu, our server was able to answer all questions we had and make a couple of substitutions for a couple of items.
The hilight of the evening is the chef, and we were treated to a show! He walked us through the meal as he was preparing it. Knowing that he wasn't just there to cook for us, he did an excellent job of entertaining us. There was a good deal of creativity and interaction with the seated guests.
I have always enjoyed eating at Kyoto Palace restaurant!

We had a great meal...the restaurant is located in an odd shopping center, but that is about the only thing I can say is not great. Fresh fish, and Jorge (the chef...I know...) was superb.

Decent food cooked with lots
Decent food cooked with lots of butter. Chefs tried to engage in conversations and throw pieces of eggs into guest's mouth to rally the crowd to keep everyone entertain. No a place we would visit often, but did like the energy and the communal feeling of everyone sharing conversations at the table.

It's always an entertaining
It's always an entertaining time at Kyoto, watching your meal getting cooked before you with flair and humor. Food was plentiful and good quality, just a bit too salty. Service was excellent.

Great BD celebration
We've been to several tenpenyaki places. This by far served the most food(meat) that we've been. A great night of fun!

This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant for interactive dining. It was fun to watch our chef prepare our food in front of us and it helps to facilitate conversation with others at the table. Very friendly atmosphere AND the food was excellent.

I went here for prom and had 20 people with me. Half of them were not fond of Asian style food but from the second they sat down to the moment we left, they all said absolutely everything was amazing. Best night of out live and I think this place made quite a few change their mind about Japanese food. Best experience ever.

We had a great time, food was really good. We enjoy this restaurant for special occasions

Best teppan in the South Bay
Kyoto Palace is our favorite teppanyaki place because of the garlic butter. They flavor the meats so well. It's one of our go to places when we want a fun and tasty evening. It is a bit noisy, though, with pounding on the hoods for the various birthdays around the restaurant.

We went for my birthday dinner and we spent about $250. The cost was a lot but the food was great. this is a place I would go only on special occassion. I wish they had a cheaper menu , we would go more often. The bar area was fun and the kerioki . they did have a happy hour menu , which we may go back and try at the bar one night.

Great place for fun and great food!
This restaurant was great for accommodating vegetarians and I appreciated that. Our chef was very energetic and gave us a great show. I wish I could remember his name... The food was yummy and I ate all of it! Will definitely be back with my husband :)

Fun time with delicious fresh food
One can always count on a great time at Kyoto Palace. The staff is friendly and the chefs are entertaining while cooking a great meal with fresh ingredients. There were many groups there celebrating graduations and birthdays which added to the festive ambience. There were only two of of this time and we enjoyed meeting the other guests at our table.
Kyoto Palace is a MUST when ever our grown children and their families are in town. A family tradition started over 20 years ago!

Yum yum yum
Very good food. Only complaints: very fattening and a little pricey. Totally worth it though! Fried rice is delicious! And I love the chefs!
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never let's me down!
Great place for family with kids or on a first date! Energy is great! Food Is delicious! Chefs make you enjoy the evening. I love this place because they help support local schools thru deals for good! I appreciate a local business that supports its surrounding community!
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
You always meet people at the table and it is usually a fun group of people
5/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always enjoy dinner. Service
Always enjoy dinner. Service was not that good. The busier it gets the harder it is for the servers to bring your food orders out that chef doesn't cook. Your drinks don't refilled And take 20mins to find your server. Other than that the food is fantastic
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had to add people three different times and they couldn't have been nicer about it.
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really amazing food, always delicious, makes you want to come back again and again. Great atmosphere, very friendly, service is on point. A lot of fun, great for groups and special occasions.

We went to celebrate out Anniversary with our now teenage boys. We all had a great time and we well entertained and well fed. I recommend.

Depend on the chef...
The portion of the foods is depend on what others on the table ordered. The chef may not distribute the foods evenly.

We had a 5pm reservation on a Tuesday night. I know it gets crowded fast. We were the first group there, but it quickly filled up.
It was my son's 21st birthday. Great service, food and environment. We shall return.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great fun, wonderful service. Loud, so senior cotzens might have trouble, but that's just par for the course in a cook at your table restaurant.

Fine Dining With Entertainmant
This was our second visit to Kyoto Palace. Both times we had excellent food and service, The fried rice is to die for. The chefs all puton a show preparing your food so it is a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Kyoto Palace to anyone looking for fine Japanese cuisine.
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a treat!
My granddaughter and I had dinner there at 5:00 on a weekday. Her ordering tempura and a SJ roll while I ordered a Tappan dish proved no problem to the staff, and we had a delightful time together. Her two appetizers were just perfectly presented, and were delicious, she reports. The chef was careful to make my Spicey Chicken order not too spicey, and it was just right. I especially liked the close attention that was given to my water glass...always filled appropriately when needed. And the attention from the server was also great. The Kyoto Palace certainly made us feel special!

My friend was visiting from
My friend was visiting from out of town and had never been to Kyoto Palace. The service was great, the food delish as always and she absolutely loved it! Never a dull moment at the restaurant and I want to say thank you for making her first dining experience a memorable one!
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone here was very nice especially our server and cook! The fried rice was delicious! A must have! Our water glasses were never empty. Our dishes were cleared in a very timely manner. I would definitely come back with my friends. It is a great spot for a group of friends since you share the table with others.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had bday party of 17 so with 2 tables. The other table had a great, energetic, enthusiastic chef. Our chef came over late and seemed very tired and rather bored. He was not very outgoing like the other table. Food was great, the gals that serviced the tables were great. Wish we had another chef though. We would return again but was a bit disapppiinted with his personality.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for groups
Not only is the food good,but it is also a good show. Better the encouragement of the chef, better the show. Always get a variety of entrees and make your own combinations - just tell the chef to mix it up!

Special Occasion Fun
The atmosphere is very energetic. Groups around us were celebrating birthdays and kids were welcome. The service was very good and the teppan chef was entertaining. Our group enjoyed the teriyaki steak and the filet mignon was excellent. Don't miss the fried rice, the making of which is part of the show. Our birthday guy was served a complimentary slice of cheesecake which we all shared. We were asked if we wanted a birthday song and our wish to forgo the song was respected. We often choose this place for family celebrations.

If we could, we would frequent Kyoto Palace every week---instead of every two weeks.... Great food, and we love to meet new people and share the chef!

Great Kyoto Dining Experience
This place was very good. the food was excellent and we had an excellent preparer that made us laugh til we were in tears! This is a great experience. Not suitable for little children.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
will not disappoint!
Friends, family, special night, or just making the little ones entertained for dinner. Love this place!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a fun time for a friend's birthday - they even had almost the whole restaurant sing to him! It was fun and the chef was entertaining and funny. They were also able to accommodate the fact that I am gluten and dairy free - they have special soy sauce. I liked that a lot too.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a lot of fun with my family
Had a lot of fun with my family and everyone really enjoyed their food. Even got my 7 year old to try steak and shimp for the first time.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a fun place with yummy food! Celebrated my husbands birthday this night, we ended up with a table all to ourselves with 6 of us in the party. California rolls and shrimp tempura were delicious extra apps ordered. Filet is always tasty and tender. Once it's time to sing they get everyone involved! We'll definitely be back!

I was there for my birthday
I was there for my birthday and it was a great experience as usual. The food was great and the service was awesome as always!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food as always
I've been eating here forever. The name has changed, but the restaurant has not, it is still awesome! So much fun and great food. We brought a 1 year old with us who was well behaved and mesmerized by our chef who provided her a few little tasty tidbits while he was cooking, which was totally sweet. The noise level is perfect for bringing a small child like we did, because her chatter was not legible to other tables. Thanks for a fun evening!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food! The only thing is I wish the chef could've given a little bit more of a show...seemed rushed.
Other than that service was good and so was the good.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is not too fancy and not too casual. Very energetic scene and good food! A great place to just relax and enjoy the cooking show!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
So Much Fun!
I went here for a work outing and had a blast. The cooks are great.. they really know how to make you laugh and engage you in whole cooking process.I had such a good time. My office will be going back soon! Thank you so much!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great dinner ,as always. Only concern I had was that when I checked in at the reservation desk, the girl did not know what to do to give us our Open Table points. Have know idea if we got he, or not.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my very first time at Kyotos Palace. Its WAY BETTER than Behihana AND House of Genji.
Foods better, service is better and its in a fun outdoor mall. Best food ever! My favorite new place.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun for all
Came here for a birthday, and it was a great time. The kids loved it, the adults loved it, so all was good in the world!
