Food is good, service is good if you consider slow to be good. Sometimes slow really is good. That we were late for our reservation next door was not Kyoto's fault; we were late arriving. I'd rather wait for good food than to be quickly...More

This restaurant is quite expensive for Irkutsk. But food was fresh, quickly served & tasty. Portions are quite big. In summer they serve at a very nice terrase outside surrounded by trees. Just be aware - there are moskitos.

We enjoyed the break from Russian train fare and thought the quality of the food was excellent. Service was passable, but the thing that did annoy us were people who were smoking inside. Oh well, that's local rules of course. All the Japanese staples were...More

«Kyoto» is a piece of Japan in Eastern Siberia. The small cosy hall will transport you from the whirlpool of immemorial vanity to the world of the most ancient Japanese traditions, where refined east style reigns. The interior is modesty and reflects the best tradition of the East. Irkutsk people had known about Japanese cuisine only when restaurant “Kyoto” was open. It was the first Japanese restaurant in the city. According to guests comments “Kyoto” is the most delicious Japanese restaurant in Irkutsk. There are four halls: the smoking big one, non-smoking small one and two tatami-zones (the first is for 6 persons and the second is for 8 persons). From May till September the summer garden is open It is the restaurant’s pride and the most beautiful place in Irkutsk center. The average bill is 1 500 rubles.
