We as a team are making sure our restaurant is safe for our customers and staff, and if you are feeling sick, please stay home.
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 eyes. 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.

We come to Kyoto for special occasions. However, we had visitors from out of town so we treated them to dinner at Kyoto Palace. They were very impressed. We love coming here and I am so glad they survived the Shelter in Place closures and reopened.

They were short staff. No drink refills offered. When approached staff they were rude. Asked to put ice cream cake in freezer. When it was brought out it was melted.

We love Kyoto Palace especially for birthday celebrations. The food is absolutely delicious and the chefs are awesome. my only complaints would be the lack of energy in service, the server seemed uninterested to be at work.we never went without, and our drinks were filled, we had everything we needed, but she was just lacking any interest. I also noticed how dirty the food carts are. they were caked with old residue from previous tables and the meat on the bottom of the shelves so close to the floor was just off putting. other than that we had a great experience, delicious food and will definitely be back.

We go to Kyoto Palace for my birthday and son’s. When Covid hit, we couldn’t celebrate our birthdays which was a major bummer!

I am so glad they opened up. The food was great as always.

The steak was very tender and flavorful, but the fried rice was not the same at $3.50 extra. It was kind of dry and the chicken was cubed very small and I could tell it had been there for a while. There was not that good fresh flavor. That's the main reason we went there too.

Had a great nice out during the pandemic. Food was great and was nice eating outdoors but would have loved some kind of heating outside like some restaurants have done but other than that it was great!

I made a reservation for Kyoto’s on Valentine’s Day. We were excited since it had 4.5 stars, we arrived on time and were seated. Service was slow from the beginning on throughout our date. Our orders came out incorrect, late, and we had dirty silverware and plates. We get it, it happens but when you’re a 4.5 star restaurant you get dinged on that. We told all these things to our waitress and all we got was attitude and pushback. The best apart of this experience was the fried rice and that was about it. I expect a lot more for $50 plates, they try to copy Benihana’s but they have a long way to go. If Benihana was open in the area I would’ve went there instead. I’m sure this isn’t the best showing for your restaurant but I am honestly disappointed. I like spending good money on good food and service but we walked out of there feeling like we got robbed. We didn’t have a good experience at all.

It was during pandemic. We were not allowed to eat outside seating even open table booked. At least the take out food worked fine for us, there was not much the restaurant could help on the seating. The food was fine, we ate it in the car, not a full Kyoto experience, but not a disappointment either.

Maybe its because of Covid, but the servers seemed annoyed to be there and it showed. Also the filet I ordered was overcooked and chewy

Great service, food not the same unless cooked in front of you (due to Covid restrictions). Not really hot food. Scallops were amazing
