It used to be one of my favourite places in town... but unfortunately it is not anymore. I viseted the place for dinner and we weren t happy at all. Sashimi not as good as usual. They can improve on quality and service.

Kukai is the best Japanese restaurant in town! The sushi are so tasty and really typical sushi. Go there with friends and meet the owner Massimiliano, he's amazing! People are very nice.

We're dined in, appeared to be more popular for take out. The take on my udon was strange.. I was hoping for soup, and out was a clump of noodles. Tasty though.

Needed a break from Italian food and read good reviews for this restaurant, should have stuck to Italian food! Shouldn't call themselves a Japanese restaurant as a total disgrace. Ordered tuna tartare which was a pile of not safe slop, and Ramen which was watery instant noodles! Sushi is less than average and salmon teriyaki (instant paste) served with a... More

The food is still great, but the waiters shouldn't make so much noise changing the tabble layout. Only one choice of tea is not enough for a Japanese restaurant.
