“Good Sushi, good waitress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The sushi was very good and the service was good. The sushi chef did not seem as friendly and happy as we have had in other restaurants. The prices were in line for sushi. We would definitely return in the future.

“Very entertaining and good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I like to go to this restaurant, as much for the entertainment, as for the good food.
You never know who you will be seated next to. That's fun too.

“Our favorite Japanese in ABQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We hadn't eaten here in years and my wife was having a Sushi fix, so we drove down and ate lunch here. It was excellent all the way around. Quality sushi and good service......the sushi luncheon special at $10 is an unbeatable deal, and it was plenty enough and very fresh and delicious. I had a noodle dish that came out less than hot so I sent it back and it was heated fine after that. Overall, this is a good value with a good atmosphere and excellent food.

“Authentic Japanese Food ~ REFRESHING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you are a Japanese foodie and are in the Albuquerque, NM area, this is your #1 destination spot. The food and presentation is authentic Japanese with superb artistic touches. The restaurant design provides for an intimate dining atmosphere, has both booths & tables, rich tasteful colors, and contemporary clean lines. Most importantly, the entire restaurant itself is very CLEAN. The food portions were ample and generous for the reasonable prices charged. We ordered a variety of food and everything was delicious and well prepared. We have dined at most of the Japanese restaurants in ABQ and so far, Japanese Kitchen is the best and cleanest. You will also like the general area where this restaurant is located, it's upscale, you can walk around the area at night and feel safe.

“Pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Firstly, you need to know that there are two restaurants with teh same name next to each other in this office plaza near the Marriott and Hilton. One is the steak place and the other is the sushi. They are owned by the same company.

We ate at teh sushi place and tried multiple samples fo various foods Everything was quite good but not spectacular. The miso soup was a bit saltier than Im used to but tasty.

I found the prices quite reasonable, especially considering that Albuquerque is no where near an ocean.

Service was very good.
