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

I always make a point to go here when I pass through Brookings. The presentation and taste of this food is excellent. I've eaten here for lunch and dinner and with small and large groups. The food is always fresh and prepared quickly.

Great Sushi, great atmosphere, great coffee, Super great deserts! The only downfalls are sometimes the service is slow and it is pricey. Although, when the food does arrive is well worth the price!

The service was friendly and they were very accommodating of my food allergies (no dairy or spice). We sat in the comfy lounge chairs by the windows. The Sushi was excellent! The Dragon Roll was our favorite. We will definitely go back!

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've ever experienced and I've eaten in plenty of them. Why it's rating is #10 in this guide astounds me. If you like Japanese food it's #1.

www.cafekitanishi.com Great little find in Brookings Oregon. Terrific menu choices, knowledgeable and pleasant server made this a definite must return spot. Sushi was cut into biteable pieces such that one didn't look like a hamster when eating. Lovely presentation and quick service. Servings were generous.

This little hidden gem will surprise diners with it's comfy, welcoming atmosphere. The food is some of the best served in Brookings. Service is quite friendly but adheres to the county slogan: "There's no hurry in Curry." The sushi is quite fresh and well-prepared. The calamari appetizer is the best in the area: crispy large slices (ask for the wasabi... More

The food wasn't anything special especially for the price. The service was sooo slow. It took 3 hours for dinner. The cake was dry and the sushi was very tough.

What a fun, unique place. The building is off the main road so you will have to know the address (632 Hemlock Street, Brookings) and search for it. They do have limited hours so check cafekitanishi.com. to get the up to date hours and menu. The inside is small, decorated nicely and is very clean so don't let the outside... More
