The Kyozon restaurant opened last September in Montreal. I attended the grand opening with medias and VIPs and I must say that I found the concept very interesting! If you want to try, here are five good reasons to do so.
Because you don’t always have the same appetite (or the same budget) that the person (or people) accompanying you
At the restaurant’ mezzanine, the Kaiten (sushi conveyor ) shows different varieties of sushis and Asian tapas plates with a color code.
Pink = $2, red = $3, yellow = $ 4.5, $ 6 = green = $6, blue = $7
Very simple! Except for color blind people or if you really suck at math … so everyone has enough to eat at their own pace and pay for what they ate only.
You LOVE Asian food, but usually don’t enjoy the atmoshphere of Asian restaurants that much
Yes! There is a great atmosphere at the Kyozon restaurant. First the place is super spacious (area of 8500 square feet) and can accommodate a lot of people (over 250 people). The decor is not cliché-Asian, but rather modern and industrial. A DJ will also be provided for some nights as we were able to have the experience at the opening night (Thanks to DJ Abeille). In short, a true trendy resto-bar atmosphere.
Because you just can’t resist special offers
On weekdays, lunch is $15 from 11:30 to 14:30 or you can get the Kaiten unlimited for $17 from 14:30 to 17:30. Several promotions are also offered at the bar for happy hours.
Because you’re a night owl and you are looking for a restaurant that is open late late…
Kyozon restaurant closes at 1am Sunday through Wednesday and 3am Thursday through Saturday.
Because you’d like to go to Asia to live their traditional holidays, but you do not have the budget
Kyozon restaurantpresents special events related to the Asian calendar. Next: The anniversary of the Japanese emperor (who will turn 81 years old) December 23th, Omisoka on December 31st for New Year’s Eve celebrations and Stesubun (Bean-Throwing Festival) February 3rd, 2015.
And finally, if none of my reasons convinced you, you can always say that you are simply a curious foodie like those of Food And The City and that the Kyozon restaurant sounds great!
