I have been to this location at least 50 times over the past 8 years and my sushi dishes have always been fresh and tasty. I prefer their sushi more than many of the places I visit in New York City, where I live. I have also had their steaks and udon dishes and have never been disappointed. They used... More

We had my birthday dinner here. Too busy for my taste. People were waiting even with reservations. I was presently surprised however to have such a great hibachi chef who was truly entertaining and seemed to be the saving grace. The service is "meh" and the food was super salty. I was taken aback and just how salty it was.... More

DON'T EAT HERE!!! IT'S FILTHY!!!!! Tonight's experience was absolutely UNFORGIVABLE!!!! The chef was good, as was the food (not great, especially for the price, but good). However, a gentleman at the opposite end of the table became sick to his stomach, at the table, and it took ten minutes for someone to attend to the mess! THIS WAS NEVER EVEN... More

Lets get the negatives out of the way first.. The location on state route 17 south is not the 5th ave by any stretch but once inside you wont know the difference. The wait staff has something to be desired as they tend to be distracted, lackadaisical and easily overwhelmed.. My recommendation is to order at the sushi bar as... More

We have been going to Kiku for over 30 years, since before they moved to their current location. Our children always chose this restaurant for their birthday dinners. Needless to say it has a special place in our hearts. We went for dinner with our son who was in town for only a few hours. The service was good, but... More

We have been going to this restaurant for few years now and the last time we ate here since last night was exactly 1 year ago. Kiku is a favorite for my son (Kiku was his very first teppanyaki experience 4 years ago) and we celebrated his birthday by going to a restaurant of his choosing. We didn't have a... More

We have been a regular for years. Great for families and kids. Japanese food is great to boot. Always get the shrimp and scallops. My wife loves the filet Mignon.

I frequent the Kiku of Paramus about 4x a year. My son asks for it, and it is great to get together with other families and make a night of it. PROS: entertaining, yummy mai tais, fun atmosphere, everyone else has kids so nobody looks at you funny if your child cries etc. Tuna tartar is excellent, you get a... More

Our visit did not start well when we arrived 15 minutes early for a reservation and were not seated until almost 15 minutes after our reserved time. Then, once at the table, it took another 20 minutes before someone took our order. Very disappointed with service and northern NJ provides so many better choices in Hibatchi. The highpoint was the...
