Kiku Sushi - Stamford

PaulaT Jun 17, 2008 11:16 AM

Now I have 3 Japanese sushi place to go to that I think are good, my favorite, Fin II, then Kotobuki, but this new place has more offerings and is a bit wilder than those two, while being strictly traditional. Went with 6 other friends, so we jammed the place (its small) - went traditional - a sashimi regular dinner ( cause thats my test plate - if its good, I'll try something else otherwise no go back) - nicely presented (I would say the Fin presentations are more artful), great fish - one draw back - they didn't serve any rice with it, I had to order as a side. Friends had various other offerings - a light soup that was wonderful and other assorted items gyoza, yellowtail with scallion, sushi cake. Then we went a bit crazy with a volcano - which was seared tuna layered on shredded onion shapped like a volcano with a mild wasabi - pretty and tasty and an uni shot hot and mild. A wild place and definitely for fun and good food.

    Stopped at Kiku last night for the first time. The food was quite good, the fish very fresh. The menu is very large and varied for a Sushi rest.

    Some of the little touches that I would appreciate are not there for those dining in, but all were minor.

    Definitely worth a stop in.
