Few outposts of Japanese fare are as versatile as Royal Oak's Kyoto, which marks six years on 14 Mile Road this year. Kyoto's sushi can be traditional or over-the-top (note their Sushi Roll Ridiculousness Tournament, for instance). The performing chefs at Kyoto's hibachi tables will send shrimp flying through the air and landing in your pocket. But there are also more standard dishes, such as yakisoba, bento boxes, chicken teriyaki, and pretty much almost anything you think is oishi.
