My son took me here for my birthday - we had not been so used the occasion to try them out. The waiter was new and said so, but for the first half of the service everything was fine. Food was just OK, mine was not hot. We waited a very long time for the waiter to come back and... More

I enjoy having dinner at Kiku. The hibachi style is fun and the portions are generous. Especially love the sushi menu. The Kiku Roll is great to share with a friend. Will definitely be going back.

Don't waste your time, and money, by going to Kiku, when you can go to Osaka. The service was horrible. Our waiter took care of us long enough to get our orders and bring drinks, then we didn't see him until he brought the checks. He didn't even stop to see if anyone wanted another alcoholic beverage or soda refill.... More

Great sushi and the teriyaki beef was amazing. Staff is great and soothing atmosphere! Prices are reasonable, but lunch prices are awesome!

I had been to Kiku's old location, and I just went to the new one. Their food still tastes as good as did in their old place, and the hibachi experience was still just as fun. I had had the steak and chose the chicken this go-around. Both are excellent. My friend had sushi and said that it was really... More

We have always enjoyed KiKu's, but they were closed for a long time while they moved into another building and started renovations. The restaurant looks great. Service was friendly and funny. We chose the hibachi seating and enjoyed the chef at the table. He was very funny. The food was great, my kids enjoyed the food and watching it cook.... More

The interior is lively and lovely. Liked that I had the grill or dinning option. I choose the dinning, since I was alone. The food was good although not as hot a it should have been. Not knowing this place I ordered an appetizer and entree, way too much food. It was a very good, but can out way too... More

This was our first visit here and our goal was sushi. Just sushi. So, we sat at the sushi bar and settled in. The menu has the "normal" selections plus a few unusual rolls. Here, you order sushi by the piece and the prices were pretty reasonable....not cheap, but reasonable. We ordered the unagi (eel) and the magoro (tuna). The... More

My husband and I have eaten at the old location a few times and loved it. We were at the new location last night and it was great. I love that they now have a kids menu, I don't remember them having this before.

I have been to Kiku twice for the Hibachi grill. I wouldn't recommend it for a couple, but it is magnificent for groups or parties. The cooks are a fun time and the food is great!
