Kyoto Japanese Restaurant
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.
We are sashimi lovers and the otoro tuna underbelly we ordered was not nice and thick and buttery as usual. It was cut paper thin and was disappointed paying $14 for it. The Hamachi was 10 times better we were expecting the same type of otoro as last time but now will shop around.
We love the booths, the good variety on the menu got us reminiscing about our trip to Japan, and we vowed to come back soon.
The teriyaki chicken wasn’t cut up very well. The sushi was excellent.
Excellent food alongside excellent energy! Staff was nice and prompts.
A perennial restaurant still living up to it's rep. Always a welcoming environment. Great service. Food is exceptional.
Everything is always so amazing here, the food, the ambience, the staff is so friendly!
Always a treat to visit Kyoto restaurant. The tempura is fantastic, the teriyaki glaze is delicious.
Service was great at Kyoto. Although the place is clean enough, Kyoto is in desperate need of an an update. The food preparation had slipped just a little from before with ‘loose’ sushi rice and more Americanized sushi rolls. But overall still one of our favorite Japanese restaurants.
The food is delicious. The service is great. It's more authentic and twice as much at night than during the day. Well worth it either way.
Great food, liked the waitress, more food than what I was expecting, easy parking. This was recommended by a friend.
Very enjoyable evening with good food and attentive service.
The waiter was very helpful and our meal was made as ordered.
Perfect location for our business meeting of 6 people. The service and the quality were excellent!
Loved their sukiyaki and teriyaki. Friendly service.
Peggy and Marleen are the best sushi chefs in Salt Lake. Always friendly and welcoming. All the staff are lovely. Great fresh food
Awesome restaurant. Great location, tasty food, nice ambiance, easy parking, and super friendly staff.
I've been going to Kyoto for years. They never disappoint! Everything is so delicious.
One person got their dinner served 15 minutes before the other 3 at the table, they forgot to do one order for my 98 yr old mom. They did however, comp hers. Ther tempura batter was thick and white very poor quality for the Kyoto. I am hesitant to come back at this point, There are a couple of other Japanese restaurants that surpass in quality. Personally, I think the quality has dwindled since original owners. Was very disappointed this last visit to say the least
Best service and sushi nigiri in town
This place was absolutely delicious. Had a great time with great food. Thanks guys!
Lovely restaurant. Delicious food. Outstanding service. Our food came to our table promptly.
Kyoto is one of the most understated sushi restaruants in SLC. The fish is always super fresh and they source responsibly. Their menu has a wide range of fun delicious appetizers to share. Peggy, their sushi chef, has been nominated for a James Beard Award. Where else in SLC do you get that?! Also, they typically have super fresh Uni 7 & Spanish Mackerel nigiri, as well as an assortment of rolls.
If you like a wide range of crazy rolls deep fried, on fire, and covered with mayonnaise it might not be your first choice. They have good ones but not the variety of those types as other sushi restaurants. However, if you care about the fish above all else, this place is so fantastic. They also have a great lunch menu!
Phenomenal, loved the atmosphere, service, taste of the food, all for a reasonable price!
Kyoto is a family favorite. The menu has a wide variety of Japanese dishes to accommodate all. We love the sitting under the table and the authentic Japanese waitresses. My husband speaks Japanese with them.
Delicious food. I was really surprised!
Food is blah and overpriced but staff was friendly and quick

Going to Kyoto was amazing as usual! My boyfriend and I go frequently and we always have an amazing time there. The food, setting, service, and cleanliness are always spot on! Excited to come back!
Very good food - lots of choices - excellent service and ambiance.
Amazing quality, service and experience. “I’m hooked”.
This is a must try & a must return.
Always a favorite. The lunch box is an amazing value!
Kyoto is a Sushi and Japanese dining restaurant. Only did sushi on this visit and it was good as usual.
Amazing food. Great price.
We will keep returning.
Super yummy food and my family had a good time. The food came fast and the server was super nice. I really enjoyed it and plan on coming back
Great restaurant! Excellent food and you’ll be pleasantly pleased with the cost. Excellent service!
Kyoto has been a favorite for many years. It's close, comfy, quiet, and they always make me feel at home. I have favorite dishes, but my go-to is the steak and sashimi combo. Always yummy!
Great , very good
