Sick of all the usual sushi takeaways and Japanese ramen shops? The management at Kyoto Joe could relate and were fed up with the low-quality options so common throughout the city. Using a clear concept – high-quality, modern Japanese cuisine in a luxurious environment – the restaurant has been able to secure its place as one of the top Japanese restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong, as well as the entire island of Hong Kong.
Kyoto Joe’s beautiful décor takes its inspiration from Japan’s Heian Period, a time of significant cultural development and artistic variety. Indeed, a visit to this authentic Japanese restaurant in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong transports to diners to a different time, a different world even. Polite, knowledgeable servers represent Kyoto Joe’s commitment to Japanese-style hospitality and the staff do their best to make guests’ culinary wishes become a reality.
Although Kyoto Joe’s magical décor is truly impressive on its own, the cuisine is what makes regulars out of first-time visitors. With a lunch and a la carte menu including everything from gyuniku teriyaki, bento boxes, sushi and udon noodle delights, diners never tire of Kyoto Joe’s extensive selection of flavourful Japanese specialties. The Lan Kwai Fong restaurant includes an excellent beverage menu as well, with an assortment of chilled and warm sake, champagnes, wines and cocktails. We recommend the ume mojito. Made with ume shu, shochu, shiso leaf, lime and syrup, this refreshing drink is ideal for washing down a big platter of sushi or one of the restaurant’s many entrees. A Hong Kong favourite, Kyoto Joe is a must-try for any discerning food lover.
Service was great...reservation was shift...very attentive and accommodative. Food was great as usual. I will be back for sure whenever I travel to Hong Kong for business.
