Japanese
A first for the city of Halifax, Kyo Kitchen & Bar fuses traditional Japanese cuisine with new-age Izakaya inspiration. Kyo translates to ‘home’, a feeling we have tried to capture with velvet cushions, low lighting, abundant greenery, and unpretentious food. As you venture through our menu, feel confident that our staff can guide you to explore the varieties of sake, the flavours of ramen, the nuances of Japanese whiskey, or anything else unfamiliar. Sit back, order without hesitation, and let us take care of the rest.
Welcome home.

I went here for the first time last week and wow. The best shrimp tempura that I've ever had as well as the best fried chicken. The cocktails were delicious and adventurous. Definitely go and try the cocktails "emma's game" and "meet me at the boxing rock". The ambience was quiet and low light (in a good way). The only thing is that the space is quite small!

We went for brunch and the food was excellent. A different spin on north american brunch. Don't bother picking from the menu, just ask the server what to order.

Great food and even better service! Kyo had a great happy hour special for two people- two beers on tap, an appetizer, and two ramen bowls of our choice for a fantastic price, as well as offered tasty vegetarian options. Our server was also very kind and personable, which made our dining experience that much better!

Did not try any food but it looked delicious looking at what other people had ordered. Went during their Thursday jazz night and it was fantastic. Being my first time in a bar like this the service was very friendly and helpful with answering a lot of questions to a newcomer like myself. Really enjoyed the drinks and overall experience. Would definitely like to go back there again!

Very slow service considering how small the restaurant is. Drinks looked good but none of them tasted great and food was mediocre with the ramen standing out as not good at all.

Second time being at Kyo, loved the appetizers, but the noodles were over done for everyone at our table. The chili oil didn't really help add much spice and didn't mix well with the broth. Not sure if in the future there is another way to bring up the heat.

So much attitude on the bartender, power tripping and taking some kind of weird delight in turning away customers without a reservation -- get a life.

Food wasn’t great and we weren’t aware there’d be live music which made it hard to have a conversation. There’s much better ramen elsewhere.

First time going to this restaurant. I have been looking for a good ramen place for a while. Had the Black Toknosto Ramen as my main and it was absolutely amazing. The staff was really nice and good with recommendations. The cocktails were quite tasty! Would have liked to have a more seasoned egg in the ramen, but that's just my and my friend's opinion.

Delicious cocktails and the shared plates/appetizers were delicious. Even though the restaurant was full, it was not loud at all and the ambience was cozy yet chic. I’ll definitely be going back to try more appies and cocktails! It was a birthday dinner and it was a great choice.
