Kyora Restaurant, Sunnyvale - review w/ pics
In the back of the Ramada Hotel on the Right. Had a http://Restaurant.com $25 off coupon, but had to spend $50 + 18% tip included on my bill. It's a lot of food for 2 people, better to bring 3 or 4. About 5 min drive from AMC Mercado, Sunnyvale.
We ordered lots of stuff:
FREE small dish of edamame
Spinach w/ sesame sauce - fine. I liked it.
Tuna Rice Balls - Skip it, worse thing we tried. Nothing special about it, it's suppose to be crispy rice, but it was just rice w/ some seaweed & tuna inside. Skip it!
Cold Ramen - Summer only. It was fine. Cold ramen, some egg, pork, pickled veggies, some light sauce. I liked it.
Albacore Tataki - lots of semi-raw albacore w/ ponzu sauce, lots of sliced onions. I liked it.
Fried octopus tentacles - B. liked it. Potato salad on the side was nice.
Grilled fish cheeks - 2 big chunks of meaty fish. Fine.
Grilled mackerel dinner - big slab of mackerel, potato salad good, salad boring. Miso soup given earlier was salty. Side of white rice.
Small bottle of hot sake - it was average. Credit cards are allowed.
NOTE: They are closing in August for remodeling - so don't go August 2011!

re: Melanie Wong
I used to work with a company that has an office nearby and have stayed at that hotel quite a few times. Remember it is close to the Santa Clara Convention Center. It can be quite busy when there is a big convention going on. They are also busy for breakfast where they offer both an American buffet and a Japanese breakfast. They seem to attract groups of Japanese business people who are either going to the convention center or perhaps other businesses in the area. I think the restaurant does all the food service for meetings and events at the hotel too.
