Reviews for Kiku Sushi

This is my new favorite Japanese restaurant. This is my first time in a long time I've been impressed by a vegetarian roll (vegan baked spicy scallop roll)! They also get bonus points for other touches: a friendly and fast hostess (owner?) who knows her customers, an extensive vegan friendly menu, reusable chopsticks, and no extra ginger or wasabi unless you ask for it.

Probably one of the better sushi restaurants in the Bay, no kidding, the fish is that extraordinarily fresh. You won't find fake crab here with your sunomono salad. The venue is smallish and service often stretched just beyond their ability to ensure that you have the necessary accoutrements to enjoy your sushi, sometimes seeming like controlled chaos, so be prepared to wait if tables are near full. The King hamachi and butter fish are some of my favs.

This is the best sushi near us and we've been to Kiku dozens of times. The service however has gotten so bad we just can't give them our support anymore. This past week we tried going right at 5PM. Surely right at 5PM we'll get served in a reasonable amount of time. No, that did not happen. The take out orders start coming in, the overall terrible management kicks in and we're sitting there waiting forever. We ask for more green tea and that took 20 full review
