Have eaten here twice in the past month, on both occasions the service wasn't up to scratch, but I will keep going back because the food is absolutely fabulous! Even though they were not busy on both times I visited, I could not figure out what took the food so long to arrive (first visit the Deluxe Bento Box, then... More

Monday night we had a nice family dinner with eight adults and one child at Kyoto, Manukau. We were greeted warmly and led to our seat. Food came within a good period of time and was delicious and nicely presented. It was a really good price with most of the meals ordered around the $20.00 mark. There were only two... More

Had lunch at Kyoto restaurant. Surprisingly, the place was not very busy during lunch-time on work day. To us it's an indicator of not very popular place. However, based on quite interesting menu, we decided to have lunch there. Well. that lunch was not disappointing, but it was not good either. Service was fast, but could not say efficient. We...

It makes me sad to write this review and rate it this lowly but unfortunately it is the truth. This place has spiraled downhill over the last two years - which is terrible to see since this restaurant was some of the best Japanese food in south Auckland for years! I have a sneaking suspicion that the ownership changed which... More

Three of us had lunch here today - all the dishes were served quite quickly and were all really tasty. Took some Bento home for family and this was also very nice. Only problem at our table was it was a high table and the seats were uncomfortable.

This restaurant is just beside shopping mall so me and my partner tried it after hours of shopping. Food was served fast and tasty, service is alright for this kind of place. The highlight would be the deluxe box which contains a various choices of snack, charged $25. Overall this is an ideal place for a simple lunch.

Had an order of teriyaki chicken and beef & salmon. We enjoyed bought as beef was cooked to the right medium rare style. Salmon was great too with vegies. We had salmon sashimi as appetiser and was fresh--- it was a great appetiser. More of the mains really. Was quite satisfied with the serving and taste/quality of food.

Looked up Kyoto on Westfield Manukau website which said it closed at 9pm. Arrived at 8pm to be told the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. We placed our order to then be told we would have to leave in 20 minutes. This is 40 minutes before their stated closing time.
