I went to Kitsu for dinner on Saturday. It doesn't look like much on the outside but was packed! The menu is quite vast...I couldn't decide what to order so I got the mixed plate of sushi and sashimi to share. It was incredible. The fish was so fresh and melt in your mouth delicious. It was very reasonably priced... More

I have often walked straight past Kitsu as from the outside it is nothing special and looks a bit like a cafe but I went recently with a friend and it is fantastic! Absolutely delicious food and if you are not keen on sushi there are many excellent options. You will need to book a table and you have an... More

this place is amazing, small and intimate we were extremely lucky to get a table on a saturday night. it was a byob which most tables had done although we were happy with a couple of cokes. really attentive service and expertly crafted noodles (ribeye chilli was exceptional) with chicken katsu curry with rice that blew us away. simply perfect.

Best sushi in town. Ichiban set fantastic value and great quality. Friendly efficient service but you need to book to guarantee a seat. guava sorbet and lychee sorbet are outstanding. Noodle dishes also fantastic with a huge choice.

I'm a very frequent Kitsu visitor! It's incredible! The chicken katsu sushi is my favourite followed by chicken gyoza. It's a lovely small restaurant and you won't be disappointed.

I have been here a few times as the food is really good. You don't have to have sushi. But if you do it is delicious! There are lots of meat/rice/noodle dishes of you prefer. Its bring your own bottle so you can choose your own alcohol this also makes it cheaper! They do sell soft drinks. Its quite small... More

Not a place one would wonder past, but nevertheless a pleasant change of cuisine. Not large, not luxurious, but really rather good Japanese. Service was prompt at lunch time, with customers collecting take aways. Quality was good. refills for Jasmine tea came without the need to ask. The menu takes a little navigating, but once choices were made it was... More

Good food, reasonably price, but service was lacking - not friendly. Katsu curry was nice, more authentic than chain restaurant equivalent.

This place is a gem. Not fancy but brings some powerful flavours together. The sushi always tastes fresh with great options. The green dragon roll is incredible. Try the katsu curry roll, Philly roll or any nigiri. The chicken Katsu curry noodles and yaki udon is also incredible. BYOB!!
