I awarded Kyoto 5 stars for the top quality food. It really is delicious. I had the chicken with cashew and chilli, the flavour was amazing! Hubby thoroughly enjoyed his chicken tatsutaage. This restaurant is not fine dining. Don’t let the outside ‘take away’ look...put you off. If you want scrumptious Asian food then this is the place for you. The decor could definitely do with a revamp and the paintwork is shoddy in places. However, the restaurant was spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and efficient. The varied menu is competitively priced (€5 for a glass of wine!) so it’s easy on the pocket too. All in all, a super choice.More

Amazing food, great portions. We came here on a recommendation from the hotel we were staying in and it did not disappoint! We had dinner on Monday and returned for lunch on Tuesday as we were so impressed and loved the food, service, atmosphere, everything!...We only wish it was closer to our home but we will be back again on our next visit to WaterfordMore

Absolutely delicious food! Beyond a place in Dublin this is the best Japanese food I’ve had. The staff were incredibly good and very accommodating. Went twice while we were visiting! The sashimi was fresh, the gyozo crisp and delicious, the rice tea was excellent, I...could go on!More

Disappointed to give Kyoto 3 stars because I order the stir frys frequently and they are brilliant. However, tonight I ordered sushi and sashmini and was absolutely shocked at the quality. I spent 25 euro and had to throw it all away as the fish...was chewy and just really off. Please improve the sushi to the standard of your Thai food!More

Great food and service. We tried sushi with prawns and avocado as well as California. All was good and tasty. They have outdoor place.

Really nice food freshly prepared and a great choice on the menu. Well laid out for current outdoor dining and friendly service. Usual form though for last while with people talking on their phones spiking the atmosphere . Stop it!

Absolutely amazing restaurant, stopped off for lunch in Waterford town while shopping, had a lovely outdoor area nice and shaded under some awnings and really efficient service. Portions were amazing, food was even better. Easily recommended, would happily come here again!
