My friend and I have walked past this place several times and have always resolved that we must go in one day. I am constantly on the hunt for a good sushi place in Stuttgart.

They had an interesting placard outside their restaurant about udon noodles but it didn't seem to be on the menu and once I sat down, I was too lazy to move and have a closer look. Since I'm a big fan of noodles, it may be something I will try next time.

Anyway, we started with the Seaweed Salad which for 4,00 Euros should have been a bigger portion. However, what we did have was tasty with a nice peanut sauce dressing. Again, I wish there was more.

I ordered the Raw Fish Don which comes with a variety of sashimi, octopus, seaweed, crabmeat mix, mushrooms and some sort of soft egg-like blob on top of sushi rice and also a miso soup. The soup was lovely and the rice dish, very filling. The sashimi was generous; salmon, tuna and mackerel. The octopus was cooked and quite tasty. The egg-like blob though not described particularly eloquently by myself was in fact very good.

My friend ordered the seafood soup pot which didn't seem to actually have too much seafood in. There was two large piece of thick salmon, something which I thought was actually chicken and two large piece of tofu. In addition, there was some spinach and a large amount of white cabbage. I think the soup was actually miso soup so overall good. I thought it was good but not something I would order.

Overall, it was a good experience - I was flitting towards a 3 or 4 star but I gave it 4 to balance the view of my eating companion who really enjoyed it whilst I thought it was average. We didn't try and sushi rolls or the noodles so perhaps we'll give that a go next time. :)

Been there a couple of times now. Fresh sushi, good service and friendly owner. Always seems to be slow when we go! Would recommend it!

Kikuya is a new Sushi Restaurant in downtown Stuttgart! It can easily be accessed by public transportation (Stadtmitte-Rotebuhlplatz). They also have a "Running Sushi" Bar for the people who enjoy variety. The quality of their fish is really good and inexpensive compared to their competitors in the Stuttgart area. They are open every day including Sundays and holidays. You can have more information at their new web-site: www.kikuya-stuttgart.de

They have a long menu of sushi and warm traditional Japanese dishes. This option is great for friends who only prefer cooked meals while you enjoy your sushi. However, if you are a serious sashimi eater, they do not carry a huge selection of fish.

In addition, they offer a variety of specialty drinks from Japan. I recommend their home made ice-cream in three different flavors. I tried variety of their cold and hot dishes so far and these were all good.

The friendly staff makes you feel welcomed to moment you step foot in this little place. No waiting in the lines (at least not yet)! No arrogant attitude! No silly rules like, you can only have a table if you are a party of two, otherwise you must sit at the bar!
