This review is going to be short and simple. We stopped by at Kyoto Bar and Restaurant in the Westfield Manukau complex for lunch before we started our shopping during the New Year long weekend. I’m pretty sure this restaurant is a franchise as I recall seeing it in Auckland Central.
The interior is spacious and clean with seating area inside and outside and they can also cater for large groups. We ordered the prawn tempura ramen and tofu udon which in terms of taste and portion was average. The tempura batter was light and crispy but the ramen was a little bland. The same can be said for the tofu udon.
Overall, Kyoto Bar and Restaurant was average. Maybe because I’ve had much better ramen in town and this just didn’t meet my expectation. The location however, is very handy for shoppers. It has ample parking and it’s a nice change from eating at Coffee Club or McDonalds in a mall.
