“Easily one of the best sushi joints in Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great sushi restaurant:
- really fresh, top grade fish
- creative dishes (have to try the lettuce wrap sushi!)
- great service

Best value is to come during lunch time but be sure to book in advance, can get quite full both weekdays and weekends

“Very good Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great Japanese restaurant. Simple setting, nice atmosphere. You will go to Sushi Kuu for the food and come back for the food. The isn't much else as the atmosphere is very minimalistic. I remember some nice jazz music playing in the background. Efficient service (Hong Kong style) and just very fresh and lovely food.I would recommend the tofu salad and the pork salad (excellent dressing for the generous light salad). Both lovely and fresh. Sashimi are very good (good fish quality, fresh fresh fresh.) Not always the case in Hong Kong.
The quality is very high for the price paid. Good luck to them.

In the same week we did Zuma and Sushi Kuu. They are at the opposite side of the spectrum. Zuma is a place where you want to be seen and pay extortionate prices for average Japanese food, Sushi Kuu is a place to eat very good food at a reasonnable price away from the pretentious crowd.

“Two Thumbs Up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Have been there many times. It always serves fresh and seasonal produce, not only sashimi but appetizers and fruit too. Love the salmon sushi wrapped with lettuce and beef sashimi. Kelvin, the manager always makes sure every guest enjoy his/ her meal.

“Overpriced for the quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

I did not think the quality of sushi and tempura I got here warranted the elevated price. Their assorted sushi did not include any salmon which is my favourite really.
The sake was nice however.
It just seems to be one of those typical Hong Kong places where you go to be seen rather than to eat. I ate at Genki sushi the day after and enjoyed it lots more for about a third of the price.

“Awesome sushi place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Very good and fresh sushis with thick slices of fish. Staff is very friendly. Interior design is also nice. Trendy place where you should book in advance if you want a table!
