Japanese
A first for the city of Halifax, Kyo Kitchen & Bar fuses traditional Japanese cuisine with new-age Izakaya inspiration. Kyo translates to ‘home’, a feeling we have tried to capture with velvet cushions, low lighting, abundant greenery, and unpretentious food. As you venture through our menu, feel confident that our staff can guide you to explore the varieties of sake, the flavours of ramen, the nuances of Japanese whiskey, or anything else unfamiliar. Sit back, order without hesitation, and
let us take care of the rest.

Welcome home.

Amazing cocktails, great food and an excellent atmosphere. I booked a table for a group of 8 for my birthday on Friday night. I tried the premium sake flight which was super cool and unique. One of my favourite places in Halifax! Will be back again and again! :)

Super amazing food and service. Even accidentally showed up on jazz night which was a fantastic surprise! Our group had the calamari, and different bowls of ramen which were all delicious. We also had some great tasting sake and cocktails. Can't wait to come back and try more of the ramen and sake there!

Food was delicious!!!
Service was horrible, they said they were busy, but there was 5 tables in the restaurant including us ... waited forever for drinks ! Got there at 7:30 and got my food at 8:45, although my party got their food 45 before me while I sat there with nothing , including a empty drink .. never got asked if anything was good .. .. music started at 8, maybe earlier , wayyyy too loud .
Had to get up to ask for a glass of wine.
Lastly the waitress asked when we were leaving... we had just got our food!!!!! We would have been out an hour before if the service was better. Waitress never asked if we needed anything or if the food was good, extremely disappointed.

Really interesting cocktails, and the Izakaya selection, though small, was pretty good. Attentive server.

We have been to this restaurant three times. Each visit has been equally pleasing. It has now become one of our “go to” spots in downtown Halifax. The food is excellent, the menu and drink selection is diverse, there is something for everyone. All at a very reasonable price

Kyo Kitchen is a beautiful establishment set in the heart of downtown Halifax. The presentation was brilliant, absolutely five star. However, the tastes and textures of the veggie ramen were very unfamiliar to me; I tried something new. All in all, I can see why the name is spreading, Kyo Kitchen is definitely a place to try.
