Kyoto is a special place to eat - the owner is friendly and obviously very passionate about his food and happy to discuss where he sources it and the recent new finds he has made and added to the menu. This results in food with a superior quality to anything else in Winchester, although it is a little expensive. It is beautifully plated and a pleasure to eat. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys their food.

Excellent restaurant. Having travel many times to japan, kyoto kitchen serves authentic japanese cuisine with some dishes offering a modern twist. I have been told the menu is due to change at the end of september and I look forward to their new offerings! I Would recommend their salmon sashimi and spider roll. Green tea ice cream is always a treat as well.

Exceptional gem of a restaurant and amazing value for money. Cannot say enough about the service and the quality of the food. The best restaurant in Winchester - if it was in London, you would pay several times what you pay here. Just go.

Stopped by with my girlfriend on a long drive home. Found online because of the great reviews, I have to say it more than lived up to them! Staff were very friendly, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the food and drinks.
For us it was pretty much the first time eating Japanese barring the odd chain place. What an amazing introduction! Food was excellent, a great selection and tasted so good!
Price wise, it's not the cheapest, but more than worth it. Similar to tapas style so you can mix and match and share, a little food goes a long way we were stuffed!
We felt a little underdressed for the atmosphere, but it had been a very hot day of driving. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion or a quiet date. We will definitely be back with family in the future.

One of our favourite restaurants. The food is always of a high standard. Service was a little bit slow this time when we arrived (or maybe it seemed that way as I was so looking forward to my meal) but as always the meal was amazing!

We visited at lunchtime on a Wednesday. The restuarant was very quiet so we got a nice table near the window. Reception and service was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent - some of the best we've had in Winchester and good value for money. This is one of our favourite restaurants in the area.

Experience was 2nd to none beautiful decor with a calm atmosohere & really friendly staff, we chose the tasting menu for 2, the manager explained each of the dishes when they arrived and even arranged for a dish to be remade when there was an ingredient I have an allergic reaction to. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Lovely food and great service the only slight negative and the reason I marked down on ambiance was that some other diners had taken a very young baby who cried, not the restaurants fault I know but not great to have a young baby in a small place like that after 7pm.

We had bought a meal experience for two voucher and as my husband and I both enjoy Japanese food we booked a table at Kyoto Kitchen. We were pleased to find that the set taster menu included a variety of dishes (8 in total), some we hadn't tried before, that gave a good idea of the different types of Japanese cuisine (after all it is not all sushi). Everything was beautifully presented and our waiters were very attentive. As each course was presented the waiter explained what each dish was and where the main ingredients were sourced. It was nice to hear that a lot of them were produced locally. For a taster menu the portion sizes were very good, sufficient for mine and my husband's hearty appetites. We were impressed and would certainly go back again.

Found this restaurant online and brought my girlfriend here as Japanese food is her favourite. Wasn't disappointed at all had a lovely meal and was treated very well by the friendly staff. Had to give top marks for everything as there was nothing to fault. From a warm welcome on arrival to help going through the menu and recommendations on what to try. Ended up having the set menu for 2, there were lots of nice little courses and we ordered some sushimi as an extra and it was so fresh and tasty. I'd never tried it before and was very impressed, my girlfriend and I would definitely visit Kyoto again.
