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.

My friend and I regularly come to Kyoto for a meal before going to the cinema. The restaurant is very clean and the food good.

This restaurant was only two hundred metres from our hotel, but was closed the first two nights we were in town. On our last night, we were able to check it out. It looked great from outside. Really inviting. Inside was likewise very comfortable and relaxing. It was roughly a quarter full when we sat down to eat at 6pm,... More

If I could I would give 3.5. The food is not bad. I had chicken mabo tofu don which was quite tasty. I don't know what it was but maybe the place just didn't feel authentic enough? If you feel like a cheap but tasty Japanese dish then you should come here though. The staff are quite friendly too.
