Hello all! I was in Clearwater for my husband's best friends birthday this past weekend. Needless to say that I was apprehensive to even suggest this restaurant, but I decided to "shout this restaurant out loud!!!" When we arrived, the ambiance was wonderful and we sat down to a great table and a solid menu (it was pretty heavy...lol). Our... More

We had a quick dinner and we really wanted to have Japanese food, the food was really good and a little overpriced, we thought it was expensive, however the service and the food quality was excellent.

One of my close friends recommended this restaurant to us and she shared it was the best sushi in Clearwater; and we agree! Our waitress shared that the restaurant is family owned and operated for 40 years! The sushi was delicious and very high quality.

Right across the street from the Sandpearl resort. A peaceful second floor getaway from the loud bars and restaurants on the street level. The spicy tuna roll was also a winner

The decor was modern. It was a clean and quiet restaurant. They had the staple sushi rolls, plus many unique ones. The staff was attentive and friendly (except the old cranky lady who should retire and stay at home).

This restaurant is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from the loud hustle & bustle of the main Clearwater strip. Inside is cool & calming and the staff were very welcoming. We were able to sit without reservation on good Friday. Be aware to not arrive too hungry as it takes a while for the chefs to prepare the... More

It was tasty and fresh Sushi, but plan to relax for a while, it does take them a bit to prepare your food. The soup was also very good.

We ran into Hulk Hogan. No joke. He lives nearby and I guess eats there often. But there was no wait and the food was awesome.

By local standards, Kiku is a 4 (half a star off each by international, US, and Japanese standards). Frankly, Is surprised by how okay it was. As soon as I walked in, I was braced fit the worst. Black blinds turned me off but decided to walk in because everything else I saw of the decor was authentic Japanese. Menu... More
