the restaurant is really rundown: the furniture need to be refurbished, the toilet needs to be fixed, the air-conditioner in the private rooms need upgrading...

I have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. This was my first visit for a couple of years. My last visit was disappointing to say the least. The last visit lasted one course. Poor standards on every front. If they are out to scare customers off with poor service, over priced food and drinks, they are clearly... More

The food is unremarkable. Its typical japanese but not really a stand out. Expect food to be served in 45 minutes to even 1 hour. It is best to order some sashimi, sushi, or maki or else you will get frustrated waiting for your main course. They have renamed the restaurant as Ku-Kai, but their website is retained as Kaishu.

We love Japanese food and we are regulars at almost all Japanese restos in Cebu City, but there is something at Kaishu that my kids love about. They say that it has the best taste but this is a subjective opinion on their part. Everytime we go there, there would only be a couple of occupied tables, some of the... More

the placce was located close to the hotel I stayed at so I gave it a try with my friends. Food was ok, but overpriced and the furniture was completely worn out and really tacky. Certainly not in line with what you expect from a Japanese restauarnt

We walked out even before we had a chance to order. The place looks run down and dinggy. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived but it took so long to lead us to our table we had been seating for 10 minutes and no one bothered to give us a menu or ask for drinks at the least.... More

The food is good but every local guy knows it's way over priced. There are other Japanese restaurants just as good and less expensive. Kaishu is located out by some of the big hotel resorts, has easy parking and has a good looking interior. Private dining rooms are available so it's a good place to take your Yakuza boyfriend for...
