The sushi is excellent and the service is very friendly and quick. I'd stick to individual plates and skip the sushi platers if you are a "purist". Remember it is cash only and bring your own

Really enjoyed the food, presentation was simple but nice and all sushi and sashimi tasted fresh . It would be a better experience if low sodium soy sauce were available. Also, I much prefer daikon to shredded cabbage with my sashimi. Cold green tea and barley tea especially in summer would be a plus as well. Looking forward to my... More

Take away, very good well presented and excellent food. Good menu on line as are all the details of the restaurant. It is quite smal inside so bookng is essential.

My daughter and I ended a girls day together with a meal in Kitsu. We had a wonderful time. Their food is fresh, very tasty and attractively presented. There is nothing I don't like about this place. Unassuming and fantastic.

We as a family love this tiny unassuming restaurant. There's nothing fussy about the decor, but that's part of its charm and it feels great to support a small independent business that deserves recognition for great service and fresh produce (you really can tell it's super fresh). The selection of "Sushi" dishes are extensive and they have so may other... More

You go there for the food only and it is worth a long trip to get it. My wife and I were blown away with the sashimi. Best we have tasted in the UK. Everything was fresh and the menu was so extensive it was hard to believe. Number 1 was the hamachi sashimi but the salmon was superior as... More

Having moved down from London 16 years ago, the only thing missing in my life was good sushi .... no longer! Absolutely delicious, fresh sushi made quickly by charming staff. And it's BYO! What more could you want?!

Unfortunately I have only had the opportunity to eat here on one occasion and my hopes were high. Having lived in Tokyo I was looking forward to enjoying my favourite cuisine. The menu is extensive and in my opinion would benefit from editing. In Japan restaurants generally specialise offering either sushi, tempura, noodles etc, here KITSU offers virtually everything. I...

Kitsu had been recommended strongly by a friend and so had to be tried. Despite appearances suggestive of a rather basic cafe rather than a restaurant, the place was packed and the welcome and food really good - excellent sushi and other Japanese / Asian specialities. There is a real buzz with everyone packed close together. Go for the experience,... More
