My husband and I had dinner at Kudos. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. The menu is varied and easy to pick from. Our dinners were authentic Japanese served timely and Ken, our server was cheerful and knowledgeable. Portion sizes are just right. We feel we got very good value for our money. We will definitely return to Kudos.

"Kudo's" menu items were absolutely mouth-watering. I think I tried them all. I especially enjoyed it when I would buy a $5.95 special (sampling of menu items)... More

We have visited Japanese restaurants in the USA and Japan; the food at this restaurant was better than nearly everything we had in Japan. It is the best Japanese food we have had on Vancouver Island. We kept going by it and not going in because it looked so unassuming; we're so glad we did. They have a mushroom soup... More

Small selection, over priced, poor quality, ugly decor... disappointing. Counter person was the best part of my dinning experience.
