This shrine to Japanese cuisine offers much more than sushi and sashimi. At Kyoto Garden Sushi fresh seafood is the specialty, with no net unturned in sourcing top-quality, unusual ingredients from around the world, from farmed abalone to Mozambican conch, eel, sea urchin, and even Alaskan king crab, deep-sea scallops and wild salmon.

Exquisite combinations – imagine sake-steamed clams – capture the subtle tastes and textures of Japanese cuisine. Enjoy superb sushi from the bar. Try the signature clear broth called ‘the sea or crayfish miso soup, and the feather-light tempura scallops, vegetables, prawns and oysters.

The combinations are innovative, the flavours fresh and delicate. The fare reflects the savoury essence of umami in stocks and dressings infused with mirin, dashi, ponzu, ginger and soy. Vegetarians are spoiled for choice with fresh seaweed salad with shitake mushrooms, vegetable tempura and exotic mushroom dishes.

Leave space for delicious desserts of green-tea crepes or toasted tofu with ginger and cherry blossom ice cream.

    This was a very disappointing experience. The pictures on Kyoto's website is deceiving and what you see is definitely not what you get. Drinks are way over priced. This was a very very disappointing experience. I am disheartened to say, but I would not recommend this resturaunt.

    As a big fan of Japanese food and a regular Cape Town restaurant patron, I was baffled at the prices on the menu. It made sense while we were the only guests at the restaurant. While the food quality is stellar and the ambience is beautiful, service is average and charging R160 for a beer and not allowing wine by the bottle when 3 of us ordered the same wine feels greedy. Cape Town is a particularly competitive space, and we paid R850 per head and walked away still hungry but not wanting to spend more. At that price, you can dine at one of the Top 10 restaurants in the country. I think this is a spot catering to international guests, but during troubled times like this, they are isolating themselves from the local market.

    Average food for an exorbitant price. You'll end up with a bill similar to what you'd pay at Fyn, but without feeling like you've experienced anything special. Service was enthusiastic but clumsy. The miso soup was good.
