“Good food, okay value, busy!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

On the evening I was there the restaurant became very busy. The sushi options were good and executed well. Service was either rushed or slow.

Too many better options in the area, not bad for a stop if you are right there and it's not swamped.

“Sashimi was very good”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We love sushi, and this was the second time we have tried Kiku. First time I ordered the Lunch Special was about $10. Sushi rolls were good, and plenty for the price at lunch time.
Hubby and I ate there last night and ordered the Kiku Love Boat priced at $59. Miso was very good, Ginger Salad was cold and very good, what we liked about the love boat was that they allowed you to pick your two speciality rolls, which we have not found at othe sushi restaurants. All in all we will go back and have our sushi/sashimi there, the fish tasted fresh, this meal was definitely filling for the two of us.

“First Visit: Very Good Experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Our server, John, from China, spent extra time with the 4 of us explanining all our food options. Two of us ordered the hibachi salmon ($16 each) and the two-for-one house wine special. One person ordered a rice noodle "bowl", which filled an entire plate, and another ordered sushi.
We all were very happy with the quality and quantity of the food and most of us left with "to go" boxes.

Hibachi salmon (with teryiaki sauce) was wonderful. Rice was excellent along with the veggies on the plate (squash, carrots, asparagus and broccoli). Edamame appetizer was delicious.

Restauarant was clean, quiet, and not at all crowded at 6:30 p.m. (but quickly filled up before we left at 8).

Our two salmon meals, along with 2 glasses of wine a shared appetizer, and tip, came to about $48...and was money well spent.

They really, really push the sushi here with many buy-one-get-one-free lunch and evening sushi specials. I didn't order any but our dining companions did and were very pleased.

All in all, an enjoyable first visit!

“A nice surprise!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I found myself between meetings and stumbled upon this place for lunch. The service is excellent and friendly. I chose the hibachi salmon which was seared perfectly and beautifully presented. Overall a very pleasant experience.
