Small but perfectly formed

Be sure to book in advance especially on a weekend. This place is a tibety gem hidden away behind the Royal Victoria shopping centre. Excellent sushi sashimi and curries. Well worth a visit, but as I said give them a call in advance.

Wonderful Japanese food and green tea. If you require alcohol you will need to take your own. Kind service and it gets very busy, so it is necessary to book.

We found this whilst living in Sevenoaks and would travel to get our sushi fix. Now we live in Tunbridge Wells and are broke because of this place. Not because of high prices, but purely down to our self indulgent need of raw fish made so expertly tasty by Kitsu. The only bad experience I had was not securing a... More

I've eaten here many times now. Really authentic Japanese food. The setting is more cafe than restaurant but its BYO and the food really is outstanding. I'll be back again soon!

Me and my husband ate here couple of time and we enjoyed a lot! We are mad about sushi and we tried a lot of places most of all in London and in Italy and we found this place one of the best. Rice at right temperature, portions not too big or too small and many kind of sushi and... More

I have never sat in Kitsu and eaten every time it is jam packed, which is always a good sign for an eaterie and I like the idea of BYOB. I have had a takeaway collection (or two) from Kitsu and the food has been really good. The prices are above average, but the food is always made to a... More
