“Amazing food - LOVE IT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have come here for years and despite moving further away always make this our destination for special dinners! The food is always so fresh, hot, crispy, tender and the quality is always maintained. The only issues here is it can be expensive (WORTH IT) and unless you're lucky you need to book!! TRY IT! AMAZING!!

“Felt very welcomed, great service, and great sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

My husband and I decided to stop in to Jin Kichi late, at around 2100. We were instantly seated at the sushi bar and our order was received immediately. The staff were so gracious, and, the seafood was very fresh.

We were rather late comers, but we were never mis-treated, or felt that we should leave. The sushi was fresh and delicious, and our servers and chefs were so professional and kind.

If we should ever come back to Hampstead, Jin Kichi will be tops on our list to revisit!

Thank you for a lovely dinner and evening experience!

“Great place - really recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great meal here last Saturday night. Sat at the counter - booking essential as it's quite small. Feels, looks and smells very authentic - how I can say that with any authority I don't quite know as I've never been to Japan!? But it just does. The skewers are wonderful - highly seasoned and griddled in front of you. Excellent tempura, fabulous sushi and all in all - a really sensational meal. Theonly drawback I would say is the very limited drinks menu - but then you probably should be drinking sake? And chablis by the glass was really pricey (or did I just order a few glasses too many?!) Wonderful.

“Feel what you eat not eat what you feel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Great place if you are gluten/lactose intolerant as they will cater for you - grilled skewers just with sea salt instead of shoyu! Generally they are eager to accommodate!
