The BEST Japanese Resto in Town!

You have to try their Gyu Kushi, skewered beef cubes! And their grilled Gindara fish in teriyaki sauce. They have the freshest sashimi. Plus excellent service. You have to book in advance when you plan to eat there.

-The waitresses ignore you even if you approach them. Just as simple as asking if a table is vacant, the person I asked who was cleaning the table, who apparently was the manager, simply ignored us for a time until she told us, "may number ba kayo?" How rude! Never going back here again!

No-nonsense place for very good sushi / sahimi selection. Could use a newer, cleaner restrooms.But the food is really great and prices are very reasonable. One sees same crowd regularly going, an indication of repeat patronage. Almost like a club!

This place just blows my mind. Fish is so fresh and sweet and Uni is probably one of the best i've had and doesn't break your bank. Big portion and relatively cheaper than other restuarants in Makati area. Although i found the place to not be that clean (especially the restroom, i completely lost my appetite after the visit).

Izakaya Kikufuji is definitely my favorite Japanese restaurant. They offer fresh sushi, sashimi, and rolls without you having to break the bank. If you do want to splurge, though, go order a bit of everything. You cannot go wrong with anything on their menu! My personal favorites would have to be their wagyu beef skewers, their sushi platter (they come... More

I just had lunch here (literally finished 10 minutes ago), and I can safely say I am NEVER going back to Kikufuji again. The waitresses completely ignored us when we tried to follow up on our orders -- and deliberately too; they would see us and actually signal that they couldn't attend to us because they were busy. This when... More

It's not you fancy Japanese dining place but the food is spot on. Service is fast but I hope they do replace their decrepit menus whose laminated plastic cover is already tattered. They have wide array of classic Japanese food but no ramen though. Sashimi is fresh and tastes clean and the karaage is crunchy and tasty. You might have... More

We got the ff: Gyu kushi Spicy tuna maki Gindara teriyaki Salmon sashimi Niki udon Everything was perfect. I'm tempted to give it 4 stars because of the 2 cockroaches we spotted and the very lousy service but the food were too prefect. Been dining here for years and I hope the quality never changes. Maybe, just maybe- they can... More
