Opening alert: Kyosho Sushi in Menlo Park

Uploaded: Jul 24, 2017
Menlo Park now has a new Japanese food option: Kyosho Sushi, which has soft opened at 605 Santa Cruz Ave.

Owner Thomas Wu, who has run Bay Area food truck We Sushi since 2011, took over the space after longtime Japanese restaurant Tokyo Subway closed in 2014. Wu had originally hoped to open in the fall of 2015.

Kyosho Sushi is a "contemporary" Japanese restaurant, per an online description, serving both lunch and dinner. The menu includes traditional sushi dishes as well as special rolls and entrees like duck breast and Wagyu beef tataki. Diners can also opt for omakase (chef's choice) — six courses for $60 or eight for $80.

Check out the menu here.

The restaurant is closed on Mondays. All other days Kyosho is open from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5:30-9 p.m. For reservations, call 650-656-8181.

Kyosho is one of several new Japanese restaurants that have opened or are set to open in sleepy Menlo Park. Newcomer Octopus Sushi opened last month in the former Akasaka space on El Camino Real, and a restaurant called 32 Fahrenheit Japanese Bistro has put up signs at 604 Santa Cruz Ave.

The gold standard for sashimi has always been Tokyo Subway. My comparison has always been to high end quality in Japan. Kyosho has not yet met the quality of Tokyo Subway. I will try again tomorrow and let you know.
