We had a meal on Saturday night before going out. Whilst the food itself was tasty, service was a little slow.
We had originally ordered rice with some small plates. The small plates each came with 3-5 minute interval between them.
As we'd yet to receive the rice, which may have helped to pace the meal, we asked if it had been missed when we ordered and were told it had.
The waitress then went to check and returned to tell us that they'd run out of rice, which was a bit of a surprise given that the cuisine is Japanese.
The food we did have was very good and maybe we ordered the wrong combinations but we did find it a bit disappointing due to the wait and the missing rice.
Really good food, great service and at a reasonable price. The beef was excellent.
Really good experiance, everything we orderd was good and the service was excellent. Wish I could rate six stars. Will come again. The smoked salmon nigiri were outstanding
We had a great evening, the owner and her staff were perfect hosts. Services and food are excellent. Thank you so much.
Great place for an after work meal, but would be nice for all occasions , nice stylish decor and tasty food , one thing ide day is staff are actually abit to efficient sometimes taking my plate whilst eating the last mouthful, also are food came at different times , but overall very nice
Great food, a little too noisy for us. Loved the happy hour
Can't rate Kujira highly enough. We eat out a lot and this is up there in the top five in Brighton. The food is fresh, delicious and refined and the service second to none.
Amazing! Just had the best night out for a long time.
The staff are brilliant, the food amazing and the atmosphere was perfect
Well worth booking and heading in!
Wonderful food and lovely attentive staff. Came here for a birthday dinner and the food was incredible!
Excellent food, drinks, and service. We will definitely be back!
Food was fantastic and had the service to match. Excellent value for money given the quality of the food. Happy hour runs until 7:30 of a Saturday so try and aim fo that window if possible as their cocktails were excellent too.
I came across this place whilst searching for newly opened restaurants in brighton as I havnt been down to brighton in a while. The occasion was for my best friend who I havnt seen in many years as he had moved to china so it was a triple date setup with 3 best buddies and 3 partners. I didnt know what to expect when booking kujira but just from reading the style of japanese food they do I was instantly sold. They met every expectation and although portions may seem small for some people for what you pay, it was well worth it for the experience and my friends and their partners were very pleased with my choice. I highly recommend anyone to try this place. Great food, great vibe and amazing and friendly service.
Great food from the eclectic menu, was difficult to know how much to order so we had lots of small dishes which were all great.
Great atmosphere and decor. Nice little touches like the whale chopstick rests. The food was delicious. We shared tons of the small vegetarian dishes as well as the vegetarian skewers. The Nasu Miso was so good we ordered a second helping!
Pork belly and salmon tacos are a must! All food was so lovely, cocktails were beaut and service was great. Really nice ambience!
First time eating here, food was absolutely delicious!! Great service from every member of staff. The manager even made the effort to come and make sure we were all looked after and enjoying everything. Will be returning very soon!
flavours of the food were pretty standard - they all tasted like it's all had teriyaki sauce added. We were confused as to what the cuisine is supposed to be .... Japanese or Mexican?? I think if they decide which direction they want the cuisine to be, they would go far. There is far too many competition close by!
We compliment the service which was faultless...keep it up
Great food and cocktails staff were great to will go back again, very chilled evening just what you want mid week
Amazing find we loved everything will be back for sure loved it x
As a Japanese, it was bit different from my images of Robatayaki (grill) and less menu, but food is reasonable price and friendly staff. We were really enjoyed.
Amazing food and lovely staff! Very helpful.
The drinks were lovely!
