Lovely fresh ingredients. We both had Ramen which was good but very different from the Ramen we had in Tokyo where we lived for 5 years. It was frankly heavier and the broth was like a thick soup. BUT we did enjoy it. Its obviously Kitsu's turn on Japanese food. We will return ...... I think.

London prices for a byo to much but the food is always fresh just over priced and lacks any real feel

We have been to kitsu many times over the last few years but have fallen in love with the food all over again! The ingredients are all fresh,not a massive fan of sushi,my son assures me it's good! The soups are my favourite, the chilli chicken is just divine,as are the fresh juices! The restaurant itself is simple,not much interaction... More

Slightly overpriced compared with London but fresh and tasty. Make sure you've your cash as they don't take card.

A very small cafe not a luxurious restaurant but the food is lovely, quick and friendly service. You can bring your own alcohol for a small charge. We found the takeaways good too. Note you have to pay in cash.

This is a great simple place for eat in but we had a takeaway from there recently and by the time we got it home it was all a bit "soggy". Will go back for sure as it is a gem but wont go for the takeaway again.

Only 5 mins from my house, I didn't go here for ages as it looks like a greasy spoon. My loss. The food is amazing - the Tuna & Salmon sashimi is to die for an as good as any I've had in London restaurants. Highly recommended also is the soft shell crab hand roll. A bit of a hidden... More

We booked a table for 4 about an hour before arrival, as the venue is tight for space! On arrival there was a short wait while space was made for us and the table cleaned. We had just got back from a few weeks in China and although the food is not the same, some of the elements like the... More

No need to go to London anymore! For sashimi that satisfies just pop into Kitsu Tun Wells. From the miso (the best I have ever had - plump with seaweed goodness!) to the generous lunch selection of sushi, you'll be blown away by the quality in such a modest establishment! But book, because Kitsu is catching on! So surprise there.... More

I've been to Kitsu a couple of times, but after yet another fantastic meal there on Saturday night, I thought the time had come to share the love. It's small and no frills, but that's definitely part of its charm. My friends (who are regulars) recommended several dishes for us to share. The sashimi and the sushi were both delicious... More
