We had lunch at Kiku, using a Groupon. The decor is nice enough but they seem overly proud to be a Shepherd Express Best of 2010 spot. A local award over a year old isn't really a good enough reason to require the staff to wear huge buttons exclaiming this since it's already plastered all over the walls & windows.
We had spring rolls (served hot, but seemed overpriced for four tiny rolls), a spicy tuna roll (not spicy at all), sweet potato roll, and Crazy Maki. These with two beers brought us to $40 which seemed a little steep for lunch hour, but maybe we're just used to great lunch specials at places. It seemed like everything was tempura battered, even things that weren't listed as such on the menu. I wish we'd asked before ordering but it seemed strange that each of the three types of fish in the Crazy Maki were fried. It makes me question the freshness if everything is battered & fried before being served.
We left full and didn't pay too much out of pocket, but I wouldn't return and definitely wouldn't pay full price. There are too many great sushi spots in the city to waste a trip out (one of our few baby-free meals in a year) at a mediocre restaurant.
