Its menu boasts colourful Izakaya creations, lunchtime bento box specials, smart sushi options and, with over 25 varieties, Montreal’s most extensive sake list!

Amazing food and friendly helpful service. The ambiance is beautiful however the choice of music was too loud and not matching the environment or the Japanese element. Will definitely visit again and I hope they will turn down the music a little (so people can chat) and choose music that reflects the Japanese cuisine.

We went there to celebrate Christmas Eve and we decided to have the Christmas menu. It was a six-course menu and everything was well presented and delicious. Every plate was well balanced and enough to leave you satisfied.
We also had a couple of well-prepared cocktails and some wine. Finally, dessert with a small coffee. The place is quiet, elegant, and located right in front of Place d'Armes, so you can take a nice walk afterward.

Le resto est très beau. On a été très bien accueillis. Le niveau sonore était, à mon goût, un peu élevé mais il n'empêchait pas de discuter. Notre serveur était très sympathique et nous a bien conseillé. La nourriture était délicieuse. J'y retournerais volontiers.

Very good experience on this French style Japanese restaurant. Good service, knowledgeable staffs. Choice of sashimi was not too much, but all were the top quality. We shall come again when next time we visit Montreal. Thanks for the free delicious dessert.

Kyo Bar Japonais was a fantastic experience - cocktails were fun and yummy, chef's choice maki roll plate was 28 pieces of deliciousness without the need for decisiveness. Perfect for sharing between two aimless people. Great ambience for a date!

This is a Japanese tapas restaurant, basically. Small, shareable plates. Everything was tasty, and very much appreciated the servers knowdlege of the food amd ingredients. My son had celiac, and they very much accommodated him, provided GF sauce and ensured all was safe.

Love this place so much! Always delicious and nice ambiance. The service was A+, even though we waited a little to get started. The sushis and the gyoza are always to die for. Highly recommend for a nice friends diner / casual date!
