We returned to Kikusushi for dinner, because we had dinner with a group before and the food was ok.
Food was generally fair but ups and downs. The oysters with ponzu sauce was a great deal, 2 for $3.50. Agedashi tofu was ok too.
Apart from that, dinner was so-so. The dinner box, we had chicken teriyaki (for the kids), tempura and sashimi.
Sashimi was ok, tempura veggie mix was not so good (carrots and brocolli, no sweet potatos/yams) although the shrimps were fresh and chicken was tender. We ordered the rainbow row, and that was a disappointment.
Usually, rainbow rows at other restaurants are made with california row mix (fake crab rolls mixed in mayo). Here, they used the entire fake crab stick in the center of the roll, which made the taste not very pleasant. The sashimi on the roll were not too tasty too.
Service was fine, as we went quite early and hence was seated quickly and served rather quickly. Overall impression is that this restaurant appears to cater to a more 'Americanized' crowd based on the taste of the food and of the dinner crowd. Not many Japanese staffers, not even behind the sushi bar, which tells you something. I personally believe ethnic food is usually best prepared by chefs of the same ethnic background which provides the authenticity. I don't find that here.
