We ate here for lunch. I ordered a Chutoro (medium fatty tuna) for 200 pesos. They gave me rotten-old-brown nigiri. They still insists that they are serving fresh tuna.

Heard some good things about this restaurant so we were excited to try it on our first night in Manila. The place was packed. We ordered a dozen different things from sashimi, poke-type dishes, various meats on skewers, fried, grilled, raw... Everything was just OK. Nothing stood out, no dish left its mark, nothing memorable enough to go back for... More

Enjoyed our lunch in Kikufuji! There was a really long line and wait, but for affordable good quality Japanese food, this place is hard to beat. We ordered the lunch sets that came with spicy salmon, soup, and a really good iced coffee! The tuna and salmon sashimi was very fresh. The wagyu sticks, though tasty at first, didn't have... More

I've been coming to this place ever since I was a kid. In my honest opinion the BEST Japanese restaurant in Manila! PERIOD! P.S. Read the title again. :)

The place was full when we arrived so the lady handed us a number. We waited for about 10 minutes and we were led to a table which we had to share with another couple (We did not mind the sharing since we were able to check each other's food orders and see what we could eat next time). My... More

A client reserved a table on a saturday and was surprised to see that it was packed. There were even people lining up to eat outside the resto. I think i'll return here this time with family. My client ordered for all of us so i dint know what i was eating - but it was all good

Very authentic Japanese Restaurant with very decent quality to price options... especially on sashimi and sushi. Portions are excellent and large in general. Service is a little hit and miss with the staff clearly rushed off their feet .. This place is so popular that they can get away with that.. From what I can tell, its so popular that... More

Personally Izakaya Kikufuji serves the best Japanese in Manila. The price is definitely value for money. Located in Makati where the local fondly calls Little Tokyo, this is one Japanese restaurant not to be missed if you a craving for Japanese food. They are famous for their spicy tuna and also the Kikufuji California Roll. There is also a wide... More

They have the best spicy salmon sashimi and gyu kushi! I come here almost every month and the place is always packed but I don't mind waiting, that's how good their food is!
