Reviews for Kiku Sushi

Ugh, I hate to do this but Kiku Sushi was the worst sushi I've ever had in my life...and I've had plenty of good and bad over the years! Their Chirashi tasted terrible with extremely thick and big pieces of sashimi which tasted watery, and very salty to the taste. The rice was doused in sushi vinegar and it was just, terrible. Super nice folks here, but I do not know why people love this place. It's not authentic at all.

I've frequented Kiku even pre-Covid. It's a cozy restaurant that feels like home. The folks there are always very hospitable.The sushi is fresh and delicious. I'm glad I can continue enjoying it via takeout during the shelter in place.They even have vegan sushi rolls so they are aware of their Berkeley audience.Japanese vocab: "Kiku" means "chrysanthemum" (it's a type of flower that's quite beautiful).

I love this restaurant! They prepare decent meals, their menu is nice, The cook in that spot is well trained, I like a lot eating all their food. The dishes are always of high qualtity, the service towards the visitors is good. I go often to this restaurant and I not even once was unsatisfied. I recommend this place.
