The service was good and the waitresses were attentive. The food was good, not excellent. My main criticism is regarding the price of most dishes on the menu. I don't mind paying premium prices when it's justifies but that's not the case here. In my view the food is over-priced.

Food is the star here. Reminded ya of sushi in Tokyo! Very fresh, rice cooked perfectly and perfect fish to rice proportion.
Get the spicy tuna roll, chu toro and aburi salmon. Prawn tempura was also great!

We were traveling in London and our daughter was in the mood for sushi. We love omakase at small, intimate restaurants, not the large, fancy factories. Kikuchi was perfect. Service was impeccable, the menu extensive with so much more beyond sushi. And the sushi was as good as the sushi we’ve had in Ginza. The fish was superb, but we must say the quality of the rice was outstanding. We could taste every single grain. Amazing attention to detail. My wife had the chawan mushi and said it was the best she has ever had. Too bad we do not live in London as we would be eating here every week!

The very best very fatty tuna I have tasted in years! The sake selection is of the highest quality and the staff attentive at all times. Not the cheapest place to eat but you certainly get what you pay for, food of exemplary quality!

The most authentic sushi restaurant in London. I have tried a lot of type of Japanese restaurant and sushi restaurants but this is the best so fat. If you want to taste real high end sushi restaurant’s quality of food as good as you can in Japan, you must go to Kikuchi. If you are not familiar with sea urchin or any other authentic Japanese sushi seafood, maybe better to go different place but this is the best sushi place in London.

Whilst not as stylish as other London Japanese restaurants such as Roka, the food is very good and worth visiting for the food alone.

Sat at the counter and had the £100 per head Omakase menu. Great value for money. Definitely recommended. Wonderful selection of sashimi and sushi - otoro, sea bass, mackarel, squid, turbot and more! Highlights for me were the yellowfin sashimi and the tuna sushi. This is my 2nd visit and my fave is still the seared very fatty tuna (otoro) sushi. Dreamy! Officially my favourite sushi place in London.

Excellent sushi and sashimi. The fatty tuna sashimi, the sea urchin sushi and the sole were particularly enjoyable. A bit too much wasabi on the prawn and squid sashimi. The service was perfect.

Sit at the bar and order the premium Omakase if you like to see masters at work

I used to work in Tokyo as a pâtissier for 2 years and am very picky about food, and I would say this is the best authentic Japanese restaurant in London!
My boyfriend who is a French chef also gives very high comments on this restaurant.

Considering the quality of its food, it’s about the same price range as in similar restaurants in Tokyo.

We will definitely come back regularly. Thanks :))) ごちそさまでした!

Flawless. For what it was the price was correct. Probably some of if not the best sushi we’ve ever had - and we’ve been to Japan. The head sushi chef was the don. Waiting staff really nice too. My gf enjoyed her 30th birthday very much.

The food was good but I would say very expensive versus other options in the area. Some of the food prices per plate seem to be extremely expensive. I can’t complain about the quality although the miso cod was a little burnt.

Incredibly fresh sashimi and sushi. Probably the best I’ve had in London and I’ve toured on a regular basis the top end japenese restaurants in town.

If you want no frills but super fresh, authentic Japanese food, come here. Everywhere else is inferior.
