I love Japanese food!

The food was very good, but it can be busy and noisy. Japanese food is always a bit more expensive than other cuisines, and their prices reflected this. Though not Japanese, they have a fantastic cheesecake.

Love this restaurant with it's daily specials and the freshest of foods. Try anything but if they have the bacon wrapped tuna don't miss it. The soft shell crab sushi is delicious as are the bento boxes.

When my husband and I want to treat ourselves to some wonderful sushi, this is the place! To say it is the best sushi around does not give it justice, there isn't a lot of sushi around.

I eat lunch every Thursday at Cafe Kitanishi. Beth (the chef/owner) is one of the most meticulous people I know. Her fish is always screamingly fresh and her innovative ideas can't be topped.

I'm so glad this restaurant has gluten free tempura. It was great and satisfying. My friends enjoyed their meals too! Just a great place to eat. I just wish they were open more!

After recent meals in many of Brookings' restaruants we were very pleased to finally find a place where we felt the food was truly exceptional. It is only open for limited hours so check before you go there. This is a very small restuarant with a friendly staff and great food.

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.
