Menu is like a book, way too much on there and no direction for the untrained sushi eye. Shame it's not bigger as place is always rammed. Bring your own beers though which is cool, and very good value for money overall. Would avoid peak times but return regularly when it's quiet....

Bring Your Own Beer and a wide range of vegetarian options - what is there not to like? I often have the yasai yaki soba or yaki udon dishes which are fairly large portions; I leave feeling full up and content! Good value for money and the staff are always eager to please. A great laid-back place to just chill... More

I recently went to Kitsu for the first time eating in. So much choice it is almost impossible to choose what to eat - for a first timer this was a bit daunting. It is not the most comfortable place to eat and it was quite a warm evening which made it a bit stuffy inside. Food was pretty darn... More

My boyfriend (local guy) has bought me here on a couple of occasions and on my first visit I wasn't sure what to expect! But I have to say it is so far the best sushi/sashimi I have ever tried! I often think about the food and curse the fact it is so far away from where I live! Definitely... More

I used to live in Tunbridge Wells in 2007, when I discovered Kitsu. Since then, I come down regularly to T Wells to train on my bike in the Kent hills, and ALWAYS eat at Kitsu whenever I can. Their sushi is so fresh, I can honestly say it rates among the best I've ever had. I've never had a... More

Rated the best restaurant in Tunbridge Wells with good reason. Simple and tiny restaurant in an unpromising location but food that is immaculate. We generally order to go now but couldn't recommend Kitsu enough (warning - cash only).

I have been to Kitsu on many occasions and had take away too! And once again yesterday it was lovely! The staff are there to make you feel confortable. The food is just yummy and made from fresh. It is small but this is also why you go there for this busy atmosphere. You can bring your own drinks for... More

Good quality sushi and sashimi. Restaurant is very small so either book or go early. Not licensed so take your own - corkage seems to be £2 regardless of item - so same for a can of beer as a bottle of wine! Nice atmosphere - mix of friends, couples and solo diners reading books/texting etc. Friendly and helpful staff.... More

There is no choice really for sushi in RTW, so we are very happy that Kitsu is as good as it is. We don't mind paying in cash only when picking up, but ordering over the phone is prone to misunderstandings...

I have now dined in Kitsu over 5 times! I am always thrilled to enjoy the fresh and beautifully prepared sushi which keeps me coming back again. The service is great, the people are friendly and attentive! I live in California and coming to the UK my expectations for sushi are reasonably high. Visiting London I was surprised to be... More
