Dinner and a Show!

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... read more

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

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.

I have eaten at Kiku in Paramus many times over the years, but this December 31st, 2014 was the WORST SERVICE EVER! The lobby was so crowded you could not even check in. There were TONS of families, couples and elderly people waiting for at least two hours and there was no where else to go since it was New... More

What is the point of making a reservation. People with 5:30 reservations were still waiting to be seated at 6:45. The restaurant either don't care or dowsn't know what it is doing.

We've eaten hibachi many times, including Japan and the quality here compares favorably. However the service was very bad. We eventually had to ask another server to get our check for us. The cook at tables idea got the steak cooked just right.

Mount Fuji is worth the trip to avoid the horrible service here. Julie was one of the worst servers I have ever dealt with and was not only terrible at serving her customers, but was also extremely rude. While the food was decent, the service ruined the trip and I will not be going back, and encourage others not to... More
