My wife and I returned to Kitsu for the first time since the change of ownership. Our loyalty was rewarded with the same high standards we had come to expect. Same staff, same chefs, same menu, same price and most importantly the same high standard of food. So pleased that our Saturday lunchtime favourite is still with us.

Went for the first time on Saturday night with seven friends. Everyone I spoke to told me beforehand it was brilliant. They were right. Super friendly and very efficient staff who couldn't do enough for us to ensure we had the perfect night. The food was amazing and incredible value for money considering the quality. Cannot recommend highly enough. I... More

This was my first real experience with sushi, in fact all four of us had never eaten sushi before. The menu was pretty daunting and confusing at first but the staff explained it all and gave us plenty of recommendations. The restaurant was fairly small, but it was full of character and atmosphere. The whole meal was also very reasonably... More

I've always been a huge fan of Kitsu and the incredible sushi that they make. As someone who is new to eating fish, I love what they have on offer. In particular the spicy tuna nigiri is terrific, as is the tempura soft-shell crab wrap. But my favourite thing to have there is the chicken gyoza (not fish I know,... More

Kitsu is an excellent, although small, Japanese restaurant, tucked away behind the Victoria Centre, away from the High Street, trendy Camden Road and the Pantiles area. But it is worth seeking out for a great range of well prepared Japanese food. It is not licensed but corkage is reasonable. Also it gets very busy, so be prepared to wait. Worth... More

We go here frequently, it is excellent. I can recommend the lunch menu its great value and enough for a light lunch. The Sushi is excellent, my favourite is the dragon roll and unagi.

Struggled to find a sushi bar in Tonbridge; however received friend's recommendation on this lovely little sushi bar in T.Wells. Away from the main streets of T.Wells but within 5 minutes walking distance. Very friendly services and high quality food; reasonable pricing and has matched the same quality as those top sushi bars in London. Definitely will come back!!!

We popped in mid week to arrange a large takeaway order for Saturday night. Its certainly cozy in there, but all the staff were friendly and helpful in making our choices. We returned Saturday at 5.30 and the food was just being freshly finished off. 130 pieces of mixed sushi, sashimi, califonia rolls etc for just over GBP100. We were... More

Don't be put off by its workman-cafe exterior hidden away off the main streets of Tunbridge Wells, but this tiny little restaurant more than makes up for it with fresh, high quality food and very friendly attentive service. The atmosphere is more the informality of an undergraduate hangout than the formality of most Japanese restaurants, but the relaxed atmosphere only... More
