A really lovely range of dishes, very helpful, relaxed and attentive staff, and the atmosphere was perfect. I really enjoyed the contemporary finish and felt the food was good value. Plates are small but it was ideal for us to have a taste of lots of dishes. A great start to our evening.
Well worth a visit. The cocktails and mocktails are delicious as is the food. Staff very knowledgable too.
Great to know RupertB! Which mocktail was your favourite? I like the Fairytale with Pineapple and Yuzu. Hope to see you again soon. :)
The food was lovely, good value and the staff were helpful and polite. Attentive but not over bearing. Definitely going back here
Thank you! We're so pleased to know this. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Me and my friends really enjoyed every part of our dining experience at Kujira, every dish we had was extremely tasty, including desert and drinks 😍 really enjoyed spending my birthday here! The staff were super friendly & can’t wait to get back again. 😊 best restaurant I’ve been to in a very long time so Thankyou.
Excellent food, very well looked after, glad to have found such an amazing little gem. Definitely recommend and will be going back!
Thank you Georgina for your lovely feedback! We look forward to seeing you again. :)
We had the most amazing dining experience on Saturday night at Kujira. The moment we walked in, we were greeted by every single member of staff as we were shown to our table.
The menu and concept was explained to us by the lovely waitress and she recommended a few additional dishes to what we had chosen.
Every single dish we ordered was flavoursome and we especially liked how unusual the lightly chargrilled Edamame with chilli and salt was!
It is a cosy restaurant and perfect for couples and small groups. We will for sure be returning again soon.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your meal with us . Looking forward to welcoming you again soon.
What's to say....what a fantastic restaurant. Had our first meal here tonight and it definitely won't be our last. Gorgeous food and great, attentive, polite and helpful young F.O.H staff. I'm not a Japanese food aficionado, so can't attest to any authenticity, but I can attest to bloody good food.
We're so glad you enjoyed your first meal here with us! Thank you so much, and we hope to see you again soon.
I looked at reviews before coming to Brighton for a great Japanese and this seemed to fit the bill. I popped in early at 6pm (as a solo visitor) so it wasn't particularly buzzing but only because of the timing. The staff were all really friendly and attentive, and even let me borrow their phone charger which was much appreciated! Food was really good, particularly enjoyed the crispy chicken skin and miso salmon, and was given good advice about which sake to choose.k Would definitely return!
Thank you so much for your review!
Delicious food and friendly service. Would definitely come back!
Yay! We hope to welcome you again soon.
Excellent on all counts - food, ambience, service, value ... highly recommend
Excellent! Thank you for your feedback.
Nice guys, good food!
Thank you! We appreciate your review.
Great food, great service, good drinks, good value for money. Loved the katsu sando, squid was cooked beautifully, best chicken skin ever and the gochujang chicken wings had the perfect level of heat. Cake was superbly light. We shall be back soon for more.
Thank you so much! We love the Katsu Sando too. :)
The food was fabulous and the cocktails best I’ve ever tasted. Quirky lovey restaurant. Highly recommend. We couldn’t believe how reasonable the bill was too
We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the food and cocktails! Thank you for your review.
Kujira was a slight gamble as I booked for our wedding anniversary having never been before. So glad I did, the food was amazing. The service was top notch our host was helpful with menus choice, and all the team we met were were friendly and helpful. I travel a lot for work, Kujira is up there with anything i've been to globally...Thanks Kujira.
This makes us so happy! We hope you had a wonderful anniversary.
Very tasty food, good variety, knowledgeable staff, happy hour on drinks was a real bonus and made the whole experience better value for money.
Well worth a visit
Thank you for your lovely feedback!
Il Ristorante è molto accogliente ottimo servizio cucina a vista l’unica delusione essendo un ristorante giapponese mi sarei aspettato più varietà nel menu di piatti di pesce.
Giudizio complessivo Ottimo quello che ho mangiato cioè la carne buonissima.
Grazie per il tuo commento! We hope to see you again in the future. :)
Food and service were excellent so I'd recommend, especially if you're a fan of Japanese food. My only negative was that I thought some of the portions were a little small for the price.
Thank you for your input on the portion sizes! We appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve. Hope to welcome you again soon.
Couldn't rate it higher. Food and cocktails are just brilliant, great sake selection, and really warm service from the staff. Love it.
This is great! Thank you so much.
Literally amazing! Can't wait to go back there, all the food was out of this world good
And we can't wait to have you back! Thank you. :)
Great food and lovely staff, will definitely visit again soon.
Thank you! We look forward to your return. :)
We went to Kujira primarily for their highly rated cocktails and they did not disappoint. We also ordered a selection of small plates which were all very tasty and well prepared. As someone who is heavily involved in the cocktail world it is such a treat to discover outstanding and original concoctions. These are not 'style over substance' sickly sweet or over diluted drinks, but beautifully created oriental inspired in-house inventions. A special mention to our waitress Nevada who was attentive, charming and importantly very knowledgeable about the cocktails. Highly recommend!
Thank you for your wonderful review, we're so happy you enjoyed our cocktails! Both Nevada and our mixologist (Christian) are very grateful for your lovely comments. :)
Lovely little restaurant. Good food with some very nice original dishes and excellent service. Nice quirky cocktails.
Would definitely go again
Thank you! We hope to see you again soon.

Very helpful staff, amazing environment and their matcha crepe cake is a MUST try. So Delish

The most delicious Japanese tapas served beautifully by lovely, helpful staff. Cocktails and Mocktails were delicious too.

Good restaurant with tasty and succulent food. I really enjoyed. The staff are so kind and friendly. No regret I will go back again and again. I would definitely recommend it
We're so happy to hear that! Thank you and see you soon. :)
Not for a quiet dinner! But the quality of food more than makes up for it. A delightful treat! Smoked salmon nigiri was the highlight of what already was pretty marvellous dinner!
Smoked Salmon Nigiri... definitely a good highlight! Pop over at 6pm or a weekday for a slightly quieter meal. Thank you for your lovely review.
Beautiful Japanese tapas restaurant. You can choose from tapas style, small dishes or main courses and we tried them all and they were delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly service so definitely recommend for a date night or big group dining. Don’t be afraid to try sake ice cream it is delicious!
Yes! The Sake Ice Cream is a must try. Thank you for your lovely review.

Really excellent cooking - great Japanese grilled food. Also very nice sushi. Everything cooked with care and pride. Very helpful staff. Will definitely return.
Thank you! A lot of effort is put into making our dishes and we're glad it shows. We look forward to welcoming you again.
Food was very good and a large selection to choose from, lovely cocktails. Restaurant was quite and a little dark but staff were very helpful.
We're glad you enjoyed your meal with us, and we appreciate your feedback on the lighting!
Food was sooo nice! Waitress was lovely, recommenced the right amount of food and we were able to cancel dishes once we were full. We were sat in a bit of a tight squeeze table right next to the till but the ambience was still good regardless
Thanks for your feedback! Hope to see you again soon.
Wonderful service and delicious food. We had the menu explained and drinks were recommended. The tempura was so fresh and delicious.
Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves!
