Really great food and byo is great to have with minimal corkage. Food is always fresh and full of flavour but tables are packed tightly together and always feel rushed however for a quick lunch or something quick in the evening before heading somewhere else it is excellent.

With only a few tables Kitsu feels kind of like dining in a good friend's living room. It's intimate and quick - our order was taken immediately and we had miso soup within 10 minutes and a sharing sushi platter not much after that. The food was absolutely delicious, rich in flavour with substantial portion sizes. We had teriyaki beef... More

Great food and service. We tried sashimi, sushi, tempuras and noodles, everything was great. I wish they expanded a bit and start accepting cards.

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
