YP Qualified

Traditionally Prepared Sushi. Japanese Owned.

Regular Hours

General Info:
KIKU emerged from Sushi Gen, a popular Tokyo sushi bar. KIKU's owners migrated to Pittsburgh in 1983, and were one of the first restaurants to serve sushi in Pittsburgh. KIKU, which was designed to resemble a tea house, has been serving authentic, top quality Japanese cuisine since. At KIKU, we approach the preparation of sushi with reverence. We believe it takes at least 10 years to learn all of the techniques of preparing sushi rice, selecting and caring for the ingredients, and learning to form those ingredients into a work of art. KIKU's chefs are Uchino with 28 years of experience, and Taku with 20 years. At KIKU, we also offer a variety of authentic cooked dishes as well. Some of the most popular are teriyaki and tempura. Our kitchen chefs are Setsu and Sumiko with countless years of experience.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Kiku Japanese Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

The Only Authentic Japanese Food in Pittsburgh

Pros: Very tastey and I would say the only authentic Japanese restaurant in Pittsburgh. All the others are Korean (good in their own right) or worlds worse, Chinese knock-offs. Cons: They need to include a ""free"" salad with the entrees. Everywhere else gives you this. It's only a few leaves of cheap iceberg lettuce, some carrot shavings and some Ginger dressing. But these little things add to the value. If I rememb... view more

The authentic sushi restaurant in Pittsburgh

They are the high class Japanese restaurant and as close to the real deal, as you can get in Pittsburgh. They have traditional dinning customs and a coses atmosphere. There is mush more then just sushi (by the way) here for customers to try. Japanese food is mush different then other Asian cultures. there dishes tend to be lighter on seasoning so you can really taste the ingredients. all in all i'd say it is the best... view more

Overpriced Japanese Restaurant

The atmosphere of Kiku is really nice, very authentic Japanese. The miso soup was really tasty. The regular maki sushi rolls are REALLY small and not filling at all. They are pretty average tasting. The inside out maki rolls are the restaurant's speciality, and they are quite good, but they are really overpriced. They have some cool combinations and the presentation is nice. Overall, I'd say this restaurant is pretty... view more

Why go to Japan when you can go to KIKU!!!!!

Kiku is the only authentic Japanese restaurant in Pittsburgh. Don't be fooled by others who serve sushi and other Japanese dishes that have been altered for the ""least common"" taste. Kiku is the real deal. To find quality of this kind would require you to travel to New York, or as far as Japan. The decor is traditional, sedate and again follows the seriousness the staff puts on maintaining an authentic and traditio... view more

Great, fresh sushi

My spouse and I absolutely love the food at Kiku. My spouse is a newbie to Sushi and after our first experience there wanted to go back almost every weekend! The presenstation in wonderful and we have yet to have a bad experience with the food itself. Friendly but slow service. Actually, it is usually quite slow but once we get our food we forget that it took forever and that the server isn't that quick to refill our... view more

Only one word describes this authentic japanese restaurant... AMAZING!

We are regulars at Kiku whether dining in or taking out. Kiku is the best sushi restaurant the pittsburgh has to offer... and there is some stiff competition. It is our old standby.If we go out to eat at a new restaurant that we absolutely hate, we will leave early and go to Kiku knowing that we will love it. The house salad with ginger dressing is amazing. The eel and fish is ALWAYS fresh and the service is always a... view more

okay- bad service, nice settings

A decent place for sushi. Yes, Beertram, it IS authentic, although cheap cuts to others posting their thoughts is immature and childish. Wasabi is in every roll and NO, it is not mentioned anywhere, so if you don't like it, heads up. I personally wish Kiku offered brown rice in the rolls (guess once a New Yorker always a New Yorker, right Pommie23?). The service was slow and the staff was hard to understand at times,... view more

Bad review from an idiot must mean it's good

I have never been to Kiku, but after reading pommie23's ""bad"" review I plan on trying it out... as any good authentic Sushi place puts wasabi on the sushi, doesn't serve brown rice, and would never serve the sushi on warm rice. Pommie, I suggest going back to NYC and eating the so-called pizza there... and if you are allergic to oregano too... I'd suggest mentioning it before ordering the pizza.

immature comeback

I'm not sure who posted the last message, but after hearing your ""snobbish"" response that a person ask to remove oregano from pizza, you seriously need to get a life and not post comebacks to people you don't even know. I'm Italian and if you like oregano and thick pizza, which is not ""authentic"" I wouldn't hold it against you and would allow you to write your comments with no ciritique afterwards. How would a pe... view more

Great Restauant

I have been going to KIKU with my Grandma and Mother for about four years. I have always enjoyed coming here and find it very relaxing. The atmosphere is romantic but I think if you really want your child to experience the taste of Japenese food made right, you should bring them; if your child is around 12. The waiters and waitresses are very nice and easy to talk to, especially around dinner.
