    There could have been more portion sizes on the prawn tempura or else it does not feel like it’s worth the money, however it tastes amazing the beef was beautiful but a bit chewy it should be more tender for an even better eating experience however the flavours were 10/10

    The Aqua Kyoto exudes a Japanese welcome and attention to detail. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful without being overbearing. The food was exceptional! First of all, each dish was presented beautifully and make you anxious to taste it. The scallop maki with a small piece of prawn tempura and roe on top was an explosion of "yumminess" in your mouth. We each had miso soup, shared the maki, and had prawn tempura each with an order of mixed vegetable tempura and rice to share. It was too much food, but it was so delicious that we finished everything! It's a little expensive, but not for the quality and presentation of the food and the service.

    Outstanding sushi and great service at Aqua Kyoto. Bit quiet on a weekday lunchtime and not cheap but we enjoyed it.
