Let's keep things in perspective. It's on the beach in a tourist area. It's not the best sushi I've ever had but It's pretty good! And, in all the months I've visited it is never busy. Didn't plan ahead and make reservations on the weekend? I'm going to Kiku. One pet peeve is they like to upcharge for condiments? Want... More

I've not been here since 2008 different ownership and the food has dropped a little. It is as good as it gets for the location and what they can bring in. Anyway if you can try the raw scallops that was awesome.

We were the only table here and so service was great! I ordered wine I didn't like and she graciously took it off the bill. We ordered way too much food- everything was good- nothing fantastic but good. I would go back for sure

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).

Thank Vincent B
