Thanks the the chowhounds who recommended this place.
We really enjoyed the "oyster appetizer" -- impeccable oysters served raw on a bed of ice, dressed with clear sauce, a stripe of chili sauce and minced scallions. Clean, delicious, and only $4.95 for four oysters.
The sushi is considerably better than our usual place, Sono Sushi in Middletown. (Though I'm not saying Sono is bad.)
At Kyoto, the vegetable tempura, miso soup, and green tea ice cream were the standard stuff. We didn't try any of the cooked food. We will go back for the sushi and those wonderful oysters.
