I have been to Kyoto's many times and I have never been disappointed. I continue to try new things and I continue to be amazed at how fresh and well prepared everything on the menu is!! I have plenty of opportunities to have sushi in coastal cities, in excellent restaurants - I have not found one yet that I like... More

Probably the best sushi in the Mason Montgomery area. Seafood is fresh. Sushi tasty. Large sushi selection. Our group of 4 tried about 10 different sushi and sashimi rolls, loved them all. Wait staff doesn't speak great English (but they know how to make good sushi) so there was a little confusion with one of our rolls but they made... More

Great sushi, never disappoints. It is our one consistent weekly dinner. Take out busy so plan accordingly. Best of Cincinnati!

We were pleased by the extensive variety of menu options and the affordable prices for family dining with ravenous teens. But $75 later, we were unimpressed by the actual rolls we sampled. Some were creative but somehow lacking in overall flavor. Reminded me of grocery store sushi which suffices in a pinch.

Came here after the chef at the Iron Grill place down the street did not come in. My wife and daughter wanted sushi so I came hoping for some decent chicken. They really loved the sushi. My teryaki chicken did not taste like teryaki. It was ok, just not very flavorful. The place had a cafeteria feel to it, but,... More

I come here whenever I am meeting up with someone that likes sushi. You always get a salad and soup included. Then you pick what you want off the paper placemat. It's not overly fancy, but it's always good. And if you want to treat yourself - the lobster sweetheart sushi is wonderful.

The place has the best sushi of any place around but the ambience is lacking and it's not conducive to staying very long, and that's a shame.

What a remarkable change since my last review. In the interim, I have probably dined here 4 or 5 times and the change has been absolutely remarkable. I had the Bento Box with chicken, tempura, California Roll, and rice. Excellent. I also had sashimi of Salmon and Eel. Wonderful. Nice thick slices, and the Eel was warm, as it should... More

Kyoto is a place I frequent every couple of months. It's out of the way for me, but it's probably my favorite sushi place here. You don't expect much so far from any ocean or any fresh fish market, but it's still very good. I find I can get much more pure dishes here, without some of the extra fillers... More

I eat here an average of twice per month. While I admittedly can't speak for truly high-end sushi, Kyoto hits the spot and I think is among the best in the NE Cincy suburbs. The portions are generous, the fish always tastes fresh, and the prices are good. My wife doesn't eat sushi but does like their other Japanese dishes... More
