A Salt Lake City icon, Kyoto has delighted literally generations of diners. This cozy restaurant gives the feel of a bit of Kyoto Japan in the Rocky Mountains. Kyoto specializes in authentic Japanese cuisine. House favorites include the Ebi Tempura and Steak Teriyaki. Kyoto is also known for its Sushi Bar. Patrons may either dine at the Sushi Bar or order sushi from a Japanese style booth.

Kyoto Japanese Restaurant was opened by Sam & Yoshiko Tada in 1984. Sam (a native of Kyoto Japan) brought his culinary skills & Yoshiko managed the accounting and service. Both Sam & Yoshiko still participate in the day to day operations of Kyoto.

    Had a lovely experience, great tempura, and the waitress was so kind and efficient. We were celebrating my mom’s 88th birthday and everyone at the restaurant, especially our waitress, went over and above to make it a positively memorable experience! Highly recommend!

    We were super excited to try this restaurant, but our edamame was soggy, our rolls were just so-so, and the service was borderline terrible.

    We enjoyed our dinner Kyoto very much. We were seated immediately, since we had our Open Table reservation. Service was attentive and friendly. The veggie tempura was huge and tasty. Our rolls were delicious. All and all a great experience.

    Kyoto is the must go to place for my visits to SLC which have been two three times a year for the past 15 years. I love the food there which is quite authentic and tasty and at a very reasonable price. Through out the years, I understand they have changed ownership, but still maintain the high quality of food and service. The only problem I have is the noise level there at times can be high but not to the point of uncomfortable. The service personnel are always polite and more than accommodating. There have been Japanese restaurants in this city that came and went but Kyoto is still the gold standard that other Japanese restaurants have to be measured. Please keep it that way and I wish it will still be here in the next 15 years and more. Best of luck!
