Kitani has CLOSED thankfully. They never were on the same page and did not seem to care much about the paying customer. The first question was always, "Are you local".......

If spawning salmon in the local creeks were flinching their way thru a hot summer sun they'd be fresher than the fish at this newspaper wrap grade sushi spot. Bizarre only captures the notable flaws in this prison food experience. Do yourself a favor and bring in a tuna sandwich because you'll need something edible before you leave.

I was warned about Kitani before I went. I live locally, and friends said the food wasn't great and the service was horrible. I treated a friend for her birthday, and this is the restaurant she chose. First I was disappointed they didn't have real crab, so I ordered a tuna roll and rock n roll (eel). My friend ordered...

I think the service is great. I wish the sushi was a little better. I can not put my finger on it but I did not love it. It was fine though.

Worst sushi ever! I had to spit out the salmon, and asked to have it removed from my bill. The older Asian waitress argued with me that the other diners didn't complain about the salmon. I told her it was NOT FRESH, it was mushy and had a brownish lifeless look to it when I shined my light on it!... More

Wow... you would think that being a local that I would have known better than to eat at this restaurant. My lunch there last week was infuriating. Somewhat tasty, but infuriating. And nothing like being infuriated to cause indigestion. For starters, both the husband and wife owners lorded over my very well-behaved children like they were juvenile delinquents and incapable...

There is no excuse that this Sushi Restaurant can't be a good one. The place looked shabby and the fish was.... unremarkable.... Don't bother.

I have no idea how this place is still in business...It is gas station quality sushi in a strange location with bizzare owners that stare at you while you are eating with no air conditioning and flies everywhere. I would not ever want to go back here even though it's the only sushi for 15 miles, and I love sushi....Seriously... More

The fish WAS NOT fresh: the hamachi was a bit slimey; the tuna was greying some; california role "crab" was flavorless; even the sushi-rice was over-vinegered and sharp. Also, I picked up an unambiguous 'loathing vibe' from the women who served us. Sounds strange for a person in business to loath a customer but the feeling was undeniable and unprovoked.... More

I have to say this was the worst restaurant experience my husband and I have ever had. We were staying across the street at the wonderful Indian Springs and after a nice, relaxing day of taking the waters we were ready for a mid-afternoon snack. We were happy to see the OPEN sign on just across the street at Kitani.... More
