Consistant but uninspired

The food is good which I suppose is one of the more important things. The service (maitre d's, wait staff and chef's) tends to be uninspired and doing their job from memory--they barely even look at you while serving. Same old onion volcano...maybe catch a piece of broccoli...same routine as... read more

A good time can always be had at Kiku whether you are celebrating a special occasion or out for dinner with your family, friends or your better half. The food is always fresh and delicious. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, the Chefs are willing to cook your meal to order - even if you have complicated orders like... More

This is my first time dining at Kiku for hibachi. I've dined in many hibachi restaurants such as Benihana's, etc. over the years and also Mount Fuji in Hillburn NY, so comparing them to Kiku in Paramus. The restaurant is huge, loads of Hibachi tables, but very dimly lit. But the service people are very professional and friendly. We came... More

Whatever you do stay away from KIKU's in the corrado's mall. In all my yrs of eating sushi I've never had fish spines in my roll and I got 3 today! I almost choked! The quality of fish is also questionable- worst sushi experience!!!

I've been to a bunch of these hibachi places, where the chef usually does tricks, throws food at people, squirts Sake into adults mouths, and generally carries on like a fool. But this place wasn't so much fun.. And the food isn't that good. It's a nice LOOKING place .. But that's about it. Oh did I mention it's expensive

Kiku is a great place for a special occasion, or with a big group of people. Hibachi tables sit about 10, so bring a group with you to avoid sitting with strangers. A chef prepares your food right in front of you, with a great show. Kids love the rice ball "snow men" and trying to catch broccoli in their... More

Went her with some friends for dinner after a show. We were early for our reservation, but were seated promptly. Service was very quick and efficient. We all had the Hibachi Grill dinners. We shared, scallops, shrimp, steak and salmon. Food was pretty good, but thought it was absurd to pay $3.00 extra for fried rice (we didn't), desserts were... More

great baked goods, great bubble tea. I would have rated here but no place to do so. The staff is great and it's all family owned.
