Great sushi on the beach

We ran into Hulk Hogan. No joke. He lives nearby and I guess eats there often. But there was no wait and the food was awesome.

By local standards, Kiku is a 4 (half a star off each by international, US, and Japanese standards). Frankly, Is surprised by how okay it was. As soon as I walked in, I was braced fit the worst. Black blinds turned me off but decided to walk in because everything else I saw of the decor was authentic Japanese. Menu... More

We were able to walk in without a reservation on December 31 and eat at the sushi bar. The food and service were very good and I would recommend this restaurant. My only complaint is that the fashionable chairs were pretty uncomfortable.

We had a party of four for dinner. The restaurant was very nice inside. The staff was friendly. The sushi was very tasty. It was easy to find sushi rolls in a decent price range. We will eat here again!

Great little spot to eat sushi ! Being near the beach, and on the strip. Service was good and the food was excellent. The Sashimi couldn't have been anymore fresh, the sushi was good and the tonkotsu ramen was on point as well as the bulgogi don! I recommend this place !

LOVE Kikus. It's always very fresh and well prepared and delicious. As a local, it's my second favorite in the "Tampa bay area." Awesome idea to have a sushi place on the beach, and I think it's the only one. Highly recommended.

Nice restaurant right on the "main strip" (Mandalay Ave.) in Clearwater Beach. The sushi is above average when it comes to freshness and portions. I loved how the lighting was dim and the music playing was soft creating a very comfortable atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys good sushi or traditional Japanese cuisine in a quieter... More

I love Sushi and this place does not disappoint. Great atmosphere and service. Also a large Saki selection. The volcano roll is not like everywhere else, it is like a desert. You must try it. The fish is always fresh. If you like Sushi, you will love this place.

If you haven't visited them, you should - what a great place inside, peaceful, quiet and filled with great sushi. The service is excellent and a great menu for those that are looking for a nice Japanese meal, quiet place and serene dinner house.

We didn't expect too much, it doesn't look much from the outside, but the food was so delicious! We came with 4 small kids and we ordered a sushi platter for two and it was so yummy and plenty of food and we would have had enough, but because we loved one of the starters and some of the sushi...
