Sushi was OK, but not as good as many of the reviews here suggest. Sushis were a bit small and thin and the unagi was not as juicy and tasty as we have had it elsewhere. I found myself discarding some pieces of yakitori, because they contained cartilage. Also, if you put 9 EURO service charge on the bill without... More

So good to find a break from bread and cheese after two weeks in Italy. Don't get me wrong, I love Itslian food, but I was ready for something different on our last day. Super fresh and a pleasing variety of fish on offer, served with soya, pickled ginger and wasabi. Great lunchtime visit and not even our son becoming... More

Excellent option for those who are tired of pasta and bread. The prices are also great comparing to other restaurants on the island. The place is hidden and tiny which makes it cosy and calm. It is noteworthy that the place is pretty close to the main square. All in all it is the best option to have dinner for... More

Having had enough of bread, pasta and pizza we opted for Sushi at Kukai and it was lovely. Reasonably priced, plenty of it and very chilled out atmosphere.

As we were a bit tired of the Italian food we desided to looked up this restaurant. It's a bit hard to find the restaurant in an alley in Capri a bit from the main street in Capri. It's a tiny place with only three tables. We had the chefs plate with various sushi, sashimi and rolls and drank their... More

Amazing sashimi, generous glasses of white wine, good lighting and smooth tunes. I needed a break from all the bread and pasta so gave Kuki a go. Was not disappointed. World class Japanese in a funky little environment tucked away from the tourist mayhem. Excellent!

Delicious food in a wonderful little restaurant full of "Capri-Japanese" atmosphere. I loved and enjoyed it very much.

Exciting to discover within the mysterious intricate streets net in the centre of Capri, deliver at home or enjoy on site the sublime quality of traditional Sushi served by friendly and professional staff. Wonderful experience!
