Fell Short of What It Once Was

I used to love Kiku when it first opened and went there all the time. Last night was a return visit after a couple year hiatus. The restaurant had been redesigned on the inside since I had been there last. The noise level was very loud even for a 1/3 filled restaurant. I couldn't even hear out... read more

We are long time customers, but this review is based on our recent visit. But, every time we visit, they have all been excellent and flawless. We came by on a night where the weather was poor so we were able to seated quickly. I would tell you that it usually is very crowded. We came for hibachi, but they... More

Kiku is by far our favorite Japanese Steakhouse! Their hibachi is great, as are the chefs who entertain you. However, I often go there just for sushi! They have a great lunch menu too!

Superior Japanese steak house. There is nothing my family does not like about eating here. They also have sushi which many people have before their meals but they give so much food. Sauces are great.

This is exactly what you would expect from a Japanese Hibachi place - dinner and a show put on by the cook, as he makes fast work of making your food. I ordered the steak and scallops, which came the way I wanted it cooked. The scallops were very good - soft and not rubbery as well. The shrimp was... More

This is your typical Japanese Hibachi restaurant. You are seated at a table of eight. The other folks may be folks you just met at the restaurant. The main meal consisting of steak or seafood is cooked with accompaniments on a hot grill in front of you. This restaurant also has a sushi bar and sushi eating area if you... More

Excellent food, atmosphere and staff, and we were very entertained by hibachi chef. Be prepared for high prices, but worth it for a special occasion.

Nice restaurant, Japanese chefs, the right atmosphere. The service is accurate, as well. We had a choice of sushi and sashimi. Both the quality of the fish and the way it was served were outstanding, like in a good restaurant in Tokyo. The miso soup was perfect, too. An excellent choice of desserts (try the green tea ice cream). Not... More

Just had dinner at Kiku. Have always enjoyed it but have not been there in over a year. We sat at a regular table, not a teppan table, because we wanted sushi. The food was fresh and delicious. The bluefin tuna salad is a standout and a great value. Special orders were handled with a smile by Kristina. The manager... More

Service was great, the hibachi cooking entertaining, but they don't have a lunch menu - either on weekends or at all - for a family of 4, it was pretty pricey!
