Really great food. Even better service! The waiter was attentive and friendly.
Delicious food, great service and excellent Covid safety measures.
Absolutely delicious. Enjoyed every dish and the wine!
Had a wonderful time with my partner - the cocktails were excellent and food was so delicious! Great ambiance for a date also! Would definitely recommend
The restaurant is on a busy lively street at the top of a high. The service is okay depending on the waiter you have. We had a waiter who did not speak English. The food is good, fresh and as described. If does however arrive when it is ready so you may have to wait for sometime.
great food and service but portion sizes quite small for price
Absolutely brilliant! Food was increasingly, service was great and unbelievable value for money. Can’t wait to go back
Super friendly staff, very attentive to the Covid requirements of care, and to customers needs. Amazing food (the braised salmon nigiri are an absolute must), and quite quick to come to the table too! Very reasonably priced.
Amazing good quality food for amazing value! A nice well presented venue too. Would definitely recommend
Very nice waiter. Food was excellent with a good variety of choice. Cocktails were excellent!
So glad they’re open again. The food was spectacular as always and was extremely impressed at how the lovely team had adapted to the current situation with their usual positivity and excellent service.
A must visit (and I’m half Japanese so can vouch the quality of the food!)
Food was delicious as was the saké! Friendly service. Atmosphere quiet but this is not the fault of the restaurant, it is the way the world currently is. Had a well-needed and beautiful date night.
Really enjoyed Kujira. I had octopus, scallops and salmon rolls. Everything was absolutely delicious! Cocktails are nice too.
Management of the kitchen was appalling, we ordered the exact same dish as the table behind us but they got served before us even if they arrived 30 mins after us. We weren’t even the only table that was left waiting for this long, saw other tables left without fully receiving their orders. The most outrageous thing was that we got charged for some items on the bill that we did not even consume. I get that you guys are busy but if you can’t serve this many customers don’t take this amount of bookings? I mean an almost 2 hour wait for half of our order to arrive is utter ridiculous, not to mention the fact that we even had to pay for the food that we did not even eat. Is that how you treat your customers ? The kitchen management is literally a joke. Shame as we read so many good reviews about this place and was eager to try but was left hungry and upset, what a let down. I’d advise to avoid this place especially during dinner time. The attitude of the male waiter in glasses was horrible as well, treated us in a rude manner after we told him that we no longer want our food after a 2 hour wait, don’t understand where his attitude is coming from, the wait was a perfect reason to cancel but hey who cares he charged us for items that we didn’t eat anyway
Fantastic food and great service! We'll definitely be going there again!
My first experience of Japanese food and i must say i loved it!!!! Could eat there everyday!
Nevada looked after us very well and was a real help.
Also, my wife loved her birthday cake surprise! :-)
Thanks guys, we will be back :-)
Amazing restaurant and experience! The food and drinks were amazing and the service was great too.
Probably one of the best restaurants in Brighton, I can’t wait to go back!
Great food, delicate flavours and tables spaced apart well to handle COVID restrictions
It was ok, food and drinks were ok. The restaurant was really loud due to the cooking area being near the dining area. We could barely hear ourselves talking.
Delicious food, the best meal we had on our weekend in Brighton.
Thanks AndrewR! We hope you enjoyed your time in Brighton.
Absolutely wonderful meal and superb service. Couldn't recommend it more. Lovely fusion of traditional Japanese with some Argentinian flair. Had a superb mango/crepe dessert.
Thank you Niall for your lovely comment. We're pleased you enjoyed our array of flavours and our new Mango Crepe Cake. :) Hope to see you again soon.
Great food - excellent service. They just need some customers.
Thanks for the review Busby! We re-opened on the 4th of July and are gradually getting back to a "new norm" with both old and new customers returning once again. Thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times in the hospitality industry.
Hidden gem! Food was delicious, cocktails were amazing and unique. I recommend tempura rolls and pork belly 👌 Staff were super friendly and helpful, created very relaxed atmosphere (all Covid-ready). We will definitely be going back to try more dishes...and cocktails obviously!
Thank you so much! We can't wait to have you back so you can try some of our other dishes. Great recommendations too, Pork Belly... so good! See you next time. :)
Honestly incredible food and amazing cocktails to go with. The staff were lovely and couldnt do enough for you. The food is Pan-asian style tapas which are delicious dishes.
Food was amazing! Shame that there’s no music allowed at the moment to add a little to the ambience. Cocktails were tasty and very pretty but full of ice.
Great Japanese restaurant.
Special thanks to the waitress and chefs who organised a “happy birthday” dessert for my husband.
Very slow service despite only having 4 tables occupied. This is a different kind of Japanese restaurant that caught us a bit by surprise... No sushi or sashimi...
I would like to give a compliment to the staff who attended us on 11/07/2020. They are very friendly and the service is top of the class. Special mention to Nevada who served us all through out our stay. Nevada is exemplary in customer service.
The food is fantastic and great value!
Thank you for making my birthday extra special with the complimentary cake.
Great food and service will all the necessary Covid-19 safety measures in place.
Delicious food, great and friendly hospitality, and overall a perfect birthday dinner!
Hi StephL! Thanks so much for choosing Kujira to celebrate your birthday. :) We’re so pleased you enjoyed the food. Salamat!
Great food and excellent service.
Thank you so much!
The food is really good and the service as well. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere and the lamb chops were amazing.
Thank you FaisalA for writing us a review! We're so pleased you liked the lamb chops. We hope to see you again soon. :)
Great food and would go back; as it was booked valentines day the service was stretched and we had to wait for dishes and things were missed off the order. However the staff did their best, were attentive and responsive to the situation. Go when it's quiet.
Hi WilliamL, thank you for leaving a review for us. We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during our service on Friday 14th. With our limited grill space, it can sometimes take a little longer for dishes to arrive. Especially when a handful of guests arrive at the same time. We do hope you'll come back and try us again!
Fantastic food, great atmosphere. King Oyster mushrooms were insanely good! Highly recommend, great selection of drinks as well.
MatthewV, thank you for your kind review. The Mushroom is a great pick! What else did you order? Thank you for your recommendation, please come say hi again soon! :)
We ordered a variety of small dishes all of which we w enjoyed. We particularly liked the King Oyster Mushroom and the delicious cake that ended the meal.
Thank you Thurio for your review! Yes the King Oyster Mushroom is definitely a popular choice, we're pleased you enjoyed. Please visit us again sometime. :)
Everything was great - the only small thing I would consider a bit disapponting was the fact that not all the food showed in the pictures (on Google Maps) was then present on the menu (I mainly refer to the sushi rolls).
Hi Flavia, thanks for the feedback! All of our "sushi rolls" are on the main menu (Tempura Rolls + Prawn Tempura Maki Roll) So we're not sure which rolls you're referring to? Unless you mean our Temaki Hand Rolls and Nigiri's which are on our specials... However, the day you visited unfortunately these were not available! Please let us know which rolls you're referring to so we can check our Google Maps to make sure there is no errors. Apologies, and thank you again.
Visited Kujira on a Sunday lunch time in February...had a very warm welcome...given a choice of a high table near the bar or a table further towards back of restaurant...high it was for us. A very pleasant surprise that house Shiraz was on a 2 4 1 offer on glasses. Other cocktails and a white wine all on offer..this was all explained. This was not advertised anywhere that I saw so please dont expect.
We opted for 6 small plate dishes to start then had a further 3...the duck breast was amazing and the sweet potato chips with chilli aioli...my husband enjoyed the chicken skin. We rounded our food off with a glass of sake and a plum wine.
We will definitely be back. My only very very small criticism is that the high tables near the bar could be quite noisy ar busy times with cocktail making however they looked amazingly presented. I also want to compliment the glasses used for the wine...shaped to let your nose breathe in the bouquet...never seen them before.
We had a lovely afternoon...Thanks Kujira
Hi KarenH, thank you for your lovely review of Kujira. Our Happy Hour runs all day on Sundays! We're happy you enjoyed it. We look forward to your return. :)
AMAZING food .. not too expensive considering quality... crepe cake really impressed my friends and myself
Thanks JasmineP, we're pleased you liked our Mille Crepe Cake. Which flavour did you try..? I love the Red Velvet! Hope to see you again soon.
Really lovely food! We loved the style and the staff were very helpful with recommendations
Thank you ChloeG for your review :) we’re glad we could help pick out some dishes with you!
Lovely food and cocktails, brilliant service. Big delay in our food order all coming out, but was handled brilliantly by our server. Child friendly, but please note no high chairs.
Hi SusanD, thank you for taking time to type this review! We’re pleased you enjoyed our cocktails and food, even with the delay on a couple of your dishes. We also apologise for not having a high chair at this time, our current solution for this is to stack our sofa pillows together to create that booster effect! We hope to see you and Jenson again soon!
