Kyo Bar Japonais Ratings and Reviews
La nourriture est excellente mais j’ai trouvé cela assez ordinaire qu’on m’offre une table d’hôte spéciale pour la St-Valentin dont il est clair même pour le serveur qu’il n’y ait pas assez de nourriture pour deux personnes...
Les prix sont exagérés...
Very creative sushi and cocktail offerings. The Fried Calamari is excellent and the Snake roll was quite fine, too. For dessert - try the ice cream 'sandwich' with chocolate chips and peanut butter! If you've been good by enjoying edamame and sashimi, this last indulgence is justified. Note - this is a well-liked restaurant and after 8 or 9, the noise level is high. So - go for fun and good food, but probably not intimate conversations.
Pas authentique du tout. Pas mauvais mais très simple. Mon ami à manger un morceau de saumon sur purée avec pousses (aucunement japonais). Moi j'ai mangé des Udon aux kimchi. Les shitakés re-hydraté dedans c'était dégueulasse. C'est gluant spongieux et mou. Il y en a des frais pratiquement partout. Pas de défaite donc. Bref. C'est très moyen. Les sushis en entrée était très moyen aussi. Genre SushiShop. Plein de concombre. Donc Boff. Bon staff. Beau resto. Belle ambiance. Donc 3 sur 5.
The menu looks reasonably priced but after having a cocktail each plus 2 plates each we had sticker price shock. I guess the location in Old Montreal caters to more tourists than locals. You can find more inventive sushi and Asian fusion without paying that high of a price.
The combination of high tables and low tables makes the room feel cramped and noisy.
My sister and I arrived at 12:15pm for lunch. We were seated promptly by a wonderful gentleman and that was the end of the good service. We ordered the sashimi combination, Kyo maki and rainbow maki. At 1:00 pm, we were asked by the same wonderful gentleman if we are ready for the bill...we told him we did not get our food yet. He brought it quickly; the best was the kyo maki.
Great service at this medium sized Japanese restaurant. We were greeted with a very warm hello as we walked through the door. They have some very nice and creative dishes. Order the Shiitake mushrooms, they are the best I have ever had. Our waiter was Guillaume. He was very warm and knowledgeable about the menu and the different types of Sake on the menu. He also helped me set up a nice surprise for my fiancé, which was a cake made of donuts with a nice happy birthday inscription (no charge!). Extremely good value. It cost around $100 + tip for a nice dinner and a few drinks. Great warm and cheerful ambience. This place is a well oiled machine. Bravo to the management, staff, and especially the Chef!
Had 6:30pm reservation, did not have to wait on arrival. Ordered edamame, the raw tuna slices app and the mushroom app - no picture but the mushroom was perfection! Had beer and an orange drink, black Cod which is incredible (guys may want to order a side with that) and he ordered that Japanese crepe. We loved our food, have had better but this is was great as well. Service was good, on time and attentive. Ambiance was perfect: not too loud, not too quiet, good for groups, couples and families. Overall great experience!
Point important à améliorer: la petite table près de la fenêtre et près de la porte d’entrée est glaciale. L’an dernier à pareille date , il faisait très froid à cet endroit également. Cette année, nous avons demandé à être changé de place.
Le personnel est courtois et comptétent. Nous avons bien aimé notre expérience culinaire, une fois de plus. Excellent service.
The food is best shared with a friend as it's mostly tapas style. Everything I ordered was delicious. I tried things that I'm normally not too crazy about at other places but here it was really good. Beef sashimi stood out the most for me, I liked the chicken skewers the least as they were a bit too fatty. still good though. The service was truly fantastic. Thet were on point with drink orders, clean up, recommendations, and coat check. They were very friendly and very accommodating. All our servers spoke English and French and would switch between both for my colleague and I who are bilingual but better in our native tongue. The only down side for me is the food price is a bit high for like a weekly thing, I would call it a special occasion resto.
