Although there isn't space for more than 30 diners, I have never had a complaint when I come here. Dinner is always yummy and you should see there lunch time express service...you line up, order, grab, and go (after paying of course). Staff are always friendly and attentive. I have been here solo as well as with friends. A group... More

Kyoto Sushi is one of the go to lunch sushi carry out places near Union Station and the Capitol. There's room to sit down here in the back, but generally this place is pretty cramped. During lunch hour, it's mostly filled with people waiting for their orders to be filled. Overall, the sushi is pretty good, and I am fond... More

Please accept the title as what I would offer as my rating. We eat take away for dinner a few times a month. My husband likes the more inventive rolls--Funky & Japanese lasagna are a couple he enjoys. Now, they have a modified menu during lunch and it can be slammed. It is close to and one of the few...

We came With our son and ordered 2 soups one tuna special to Share and sashimi bites... Well we were still very hungry when we left and it was quite expensive. The sashimi bites were more like chunks... The quality is ok but it was disappointing anyway

From the reviews and the appearance of this restaurant, I was looking forward to having a go-to sushi place in this area, and then the atmosphere and service got my hopes up even more. It's a small, cozy restaurant with friendly staff, but the food just doesn't measure up. I've had nabeyaki udon which did have amazing, perfectly cooked noodles... More

I have been coming here while on lunch with coworkers for about a year now. The staff is always friendly, the lunch specials are a really good deal, and the food is good for the price. The sushi is slightly above average, but the teriyaki chicken tastes much better than most Asian restaurants in the area. I highly recommend it.... More

Good quality and nice staff. Got the dinner boxes and they were great. A large amount of food too! Tempura was very light and no too oily.

Large portions for a sushi restaurant. Fresh sushi, salads, etc. Fast and friendly service. Tempura meal was enough to feed 3 adults.

after a couple days traveling and some epic bad food, we were referred here by our hotel concierge. A very nice little restaurant. Quality of food excellent. Unpretentious, good place to eat.
