My Okinawan wife along with her Japanese friends all seem to agree that Café Kitanishi has the best Japanese food in the area. The food and service is good and the prices are fair.

The food was tasty and presented well. We often buy two entrees and share among three of us. Prices are not unreasonable, but not a "value" meal either... The down side to Cafe Kitanishi are don't plan on getting in and out in a hurry... the service is frequently rather slow... but if you want a leisurely meal, without a... More

Although the sushi was awesome (got a Rainbow Roll and a Samurai Roll) the wait time was a bit atrocious since there was no one else in front of us and we waited 45 minutes. But the food was worth the wait! And the Irish cream cheesecake is to die for.

We came to this restaurant with a group of 8. Actually, we were 6 at 8p and waited until 8:30p for our other 2 to show up and no one minded the wait! We ordered edamame (both plain and spicy... Go with the spicy!) and veggie tempura (outstanding). We brought our own wine but ordered their beer (great combo). I... More

Tried this restaurant trying to find sushi, do not waste your time. The waitress (we presume) was the owner and she acted like we were keeping her away from her job by being there. Was completely put off by her attitude. Also the sushi had a fishy smell and an off taste. We have had our fair share of sushi... More

My parents and I live in Brookings and have gone to Cafe Kitanishi for quite some time. We have never had a horrible experience here at all. We put in a to-go order at 6:30, and were told that our order would be ready in about 30 minutes to an hour. We showed up at 7:30 looking to pay for... More

Off the beaten path. Small and cozy. Open for limited hours and on certain days. So plan ahead. Sushi and sashimi to die for.

If we want to have a nice meal out, this is our first choice in Brookings. The sushi is great, but also the tempura and other entree's.

Live in San Diego where some of the best sushi thrives. So glad we found this. Off the beaten track a tad but WAY worth the search. We always sit at the sushi bar when we go and did again. Beth and Maricela made our sushi. We ate till we could eat no more. It was that good and fun...of... More
