The food is still great, but the waiters shouldn't make so much noise changing the tabble layout. Only one choice of tea is not enough for a Japanese restaurant.

Having dined at Kukai Nibu many times over the last few years, yesterday's experience was extremely disappointing. We were not greeted upon entering the tiny upstairs and we stood ignored by the waitress for a least 10 minutes before being shown to a table in the empty restaurant. No beverages were offered and we had to call her and ask... More

Great place, great food and good service. If you want a break from all the Italian food, this must be one of the best options.

Trust! Excellent Japanese in Naples! With a charming Mediterranean twist! And Max is a fabulous host.. Recommended if you feel like a change from the amazing Neapolitan fare... Also check Capri location, impeccable!

I've been here a few times and really do love the food. It's fresh and wonderfully presented. The restaurant is pretty expensive though (wine, sushi, water, everything...). But the departure from pizza and pasta and other Italian fare here in Naples is nice so we'll be back.

Four pieces of both salmon & tuna sashimi,( which were melt in your mouth excellent so ordered another 4 of each) however the prawn tepanyaki that followed was the highlight. The udon was damn good too. Teriyaki chicken was deconstructed and didn't work well in my... More

Wonderful sushi in a surprising place. It is not often I am happily walk away from a Japanese restaurant. The fish was fresh and the rolls were wonderfully made. The building was designed in a modern design that could be from the top restaurants in New York City. I would go back in a heart beat when given the chance.... More

After eight days, I needed a break from Italian food. It was a toss between Thai and Japanese but I'm glad we chose the latter. The setting is up a tiny street, near Teatro San Carlos. The interior is very modern and stylish. The staff were efficient, friendly, spoke English and French and knew the menu inside out. It is... More

Green thee for €5,50, cheapest bottle of wine €16,-. service €2,50 per person, just a bottle of water is even €3,50! cheapest sushi set (9 pieces) was €12. Wouldn't recommend this place because of the prices. Other than that,is was... More
