Kyoto in New Orleans, LA

4920 Prytania St.
New Orleans

the front

A lot of my friends eat here and so I wanted to check it out. The location is convenient with dessert next door (Creole creamery)!


We got here early for dinner (like 5ish) and so there was no wait! We had time to peruse the menu and make some good decisions with the help of online review forums.

Desiree Roll

The Desiree Roll has dynamite (spicy tuna) rolls, crawfish, crabstick rolled together and then deep fried in tempura batter served with creamy wasabi sauce. My first bite had a ton of wasabi sauce on it and it felt like wasabi was coming out of my nose! (You know you’ve all been there). This was my favorite roll of the night.

The Funky Margarita roll and Hot Box roll

The funky margarita roll

The funky margarita roll has a dynamite (spicy tuna) mixture with crunchy that is topped with slices of tuna, salmon and with a spicy avocado sauce. This roll came highly recommended online and then by the waittress who said that almost everybody that comes in orders this roll but I gotta say, we weren’t impressed. The sushi was just not flavorful. And the dynamite flavor didn’t mix well with the topping.

the hot box

The Hot Box roll is the rainbow box (spicy snowcrab on the inside, wrapped on the outside with the tuna, white tuna, fresh salmon and avocado) with eel sauce, chili sauce, margarita sauce, crunchy flakes, smelt roe, and green onion. Our night was saved by this roll! We started off strong with the desiree and then got super disappointed with the Funky Margarita roll but thank God we saved this one for last. The eel sauce was the perfect addition to this savory roll.
