Great food. Especially the tempura sushi!! Unfussy service. BYOB which is a remarkable money saver on the bill. Incredibly good value for money. Book in advance as this place is small! Highly recommended.

My husband and I treat ourselves to Kitsu's Ichiban, a delicious selection of nigiri and maki. It also makes for a great take-out meal, though I prefer to eat in. Thank goodness for good sushi nearby our home! The place is small. Please do the rest of us a favour and leave your kids at home.

We wisely booked in advance although we were mid week - this place gets busy almost every night during the week which is a testimony to its popularity. Food is prepared freshly and is very tasty. You should take your own alcohol which can be consumed at a very reasonable corkage charge (£2 per bottle).

Booked for four on Saturday eve during our holiday. Big choice all served quickly and was very tasty. Small and modern, no frills and no alcohol licence but you can byo. Fun/relaxed atmosphere. My friend who spent several years in Japan says it is very similar to sushi bars in Tokyo. I would go again when next in the area.

Two of us went in just after midday on a Wednesday and there was only one other person in the restaurant. We were asked if we'd booked and I said no and we were pointed to a table for two right in front of the counter. The door was wedged open and we didn't want to be right in the... More

We have eaten here many times. The food is always wonderful, and the prices very reasonable. Not the most attractive location or atmos, but the food and prices make up for that.

Well presented food. I chose a vegan option. Nice thing is the veg is not over cooked. Once had a bit of an after wish I had not but every other time that has not been the case at all.

Excellent fresh food, great variety, good value. Very, small venue, advised to book. Friendly staff. Not particularly conducive to romantic ambience.

I really like to go here as a couple or with friends. Always reserve the seats as it is very small. The food is amazing, I have never been disappointed. A great place to go to try sushi for the first time or a regular! Looking forward to the next visit!

I've been wanting to try this tiny little cove for long while and what a refreshing and pleasant surprise - so down with Wagamama, overpriced, sub-standard fair and up with Kitsu. I am always a bit wary when restaurants have a widespread menu - I wonder how they manage to cook so well in such a tiny kitchen. We tried... More
