Kitsu cannot be beaten for value and quality! We love it - their food is always delicious and is always our first choice for eating out in Tunbridge Wells. If you love sushi then this is the place to go.

We've been to Kitsu many times before and the food is amazing but our last trip was spoiled by the fact that as the waitress put our deserts down she told us we had to leave because some other people wanted our table. When we said 'could we just finish our food?' she told us to hurry! When we didn't... More

If I am going to be honest with you, I have completely forgotten how many times I have eaten here! My first visit - I was hooked on their sushi. The prices in comparison to some sushi places is extremely good for value. The sashimi ranges from £7 to £10 vs other places which charge a extortionate £15+! The atmosphere... More

One of the best restaurants in the Tunbridge Wells area by far. My girlfriend and I visit often when we can't decide between us where else to go for the same price and quality. The food is nicely priced (especially compared to similar quality dishes bought in a city restaurant), and authentically Japanese with some western twists thrown in for... More

The biggest issue of returning to a great venue is not paying attention the first time to exactly what you ordered. This time tried to repeat two dishes and got one wrong. Still a wonderful meal in this tiny but memorable place. Hugely polite interesting staff. One newzealander from Swindon, a great character. Still tiny still easily crowded but better... More

Tried this venue after hearing others raving about it but our party of 8 was overall fairly disappointed with the food we received. The tofu starter I was given was inedible - and actually smelt unpleasant - a fact agreed by the staff who took it off the bill. The main meals were by and large nothing remarkable.. and has...

So, after an average meal I was told it was cash only. Great. Who does that? Why on earth is it cash only? This place isn't a cheap greasy spoon where you expect cash only, it's a evening restaurant with dishes £15+ each. Not cheap at all. It's not authentic Asian either. It may still be Asian owned, I don't... More

Fantastic little Japanese place, which basically has 2 menus, each of them excellent. The sushi menu is pretty comprehensive and everything I had was very high quality. Then they also have a menu that replicates a lot of what Wagamama do - for the same kind of price, but better in my opinion. It's only small so you need to... More

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.
