Tables/grills were crowded, if place would have been busy it would have been uncomfortable. We ordered a special cocktail and the drink tasted awful! Not sure if liquor or garnish was old, but I couldn't drink the drink. The food did not taste very fresh, just average. High note was they do something special for birthday person. Don't think I will go again.

The sushi was very good and the service was good. The sushi chef did not seem as friendly and happy as we have had in other restaurants. The prices were in line for sushi. We would definitely return in the future.

I like to go to this restaurant, as much for the entertainment, as for the good food.
You never know who you will be seated next to. That's fun too.

We hadn't eaten here in years and my wife was having a Sushi fix, so we drove down and ate lunch here. It was excellent all the way around. Quality sushi and good service......the sushi luncheon special at $10 is an unbeatable deal, and it was plenty enough and very fresh and delicious. I had a noodle dish that came out less than hot so I sent it back and it was heated fine after that. Overall, this is a good value with a good atmosphere and excellent food.

If you are a Japanese foodie and are in the Albuquerque, NM area, this is your #1 destination spot. The food and presentation is authentic Japanese with superb artistic touches. The restaurant design provides for an intimate dining atmosphere, has both booths & tables, rich tasteful colors, and contemporary clean lines. Most importantly, the entire restaurant itself is very CLEAN. The food portions were ample and generous for the reasonable prices charged. We ordered a variety of food and everything was delicious and well prepared. We have dined at most of the Japanese restaurants in ABQ and so far, Japanese Kitchen is the best and cleanest. You will also like the general area where this restaurant is located, it's upscale, you can walk around the area at night and feel safe.
