Lovely Japanese food, highly recommend this place and would go back.
I have been there twice and loved it but the third time i was disappointed.
Not many things on the menu, i do not like the ordering system. Our menu/order was left on the table for ages. Too dark. Not impressed with the portions but taste was good
Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry you were disappointed on your visit with us. Unfortunately, this is the most convenient ordering system for us with the current circumstances. Due to your allergies/dietary requirements our team may have taken a little extra time with your table just to be extra cautious. If you do wish to join us again, please do let us know your dietary requirements beforehand so our team can be prepared prior to your arrival!
Delicious food and unique cocktails. Everything was excellent and we had a lovely time! We choose 7 dishes to share between 2 and it was the perfect amount.
Thank you for the lovely feedback, we're so glad you enjoyed your evening with us. We hope to welcome you again soon!
Amazing food, delicious cocktails and very well looked after by the staff. One of my favourite restaurants in Brighton.
Kujira used to be amazing and unique in Brighton. The food was interesting and well executed. Unfortunately the original chef is no longer there and the food was very disappointing, bland and most dishes came slathered in mayonnaise and sweet sauces/marinades. The whole experience was lacklustre, there was no atmosphere and it felt generally unloved. Such a shame as used to be my favourite.
Thank you for your feedback. We'd like to apologise that our new menu was not to your taste. Looking at your orders from your evening with us, the dishes you chose were indeed cooked in 'sweet sauces' (yakiniku, sweet miso, gochujang). If you'd like to join us again, perhaps our team could recommend dishes that are less sweet which might be more suited for you? Please let us know if you'd like to visit, we'll be sure to recommend suitable dishes for you!
Staff were really attentive which made the visit 5 stars. Pork ribs were amazing. Other dishes were good. Cocktail list was great.
Thank you for your feedback! Please visit us again for more ribs :)
Nice variety of tasty small plates. The vegetarian dishes were better - the squid and octopus were both a bit on the tough side. Good happy hour offers. Staff friendly and attentive, with good service overall.
Thank you for your feedback! We've taken on the notes regarding the octopus and squid. We hope to welcome you again in the near future.
Outstanding food and great selection of cocktails. Unfortunately the service wasn’t up to standard and we waited a lot to order but they were short of staff . Staff were super friendly and worked hard but they just needed more staff as the restaurant was full
Thank you for your feedback Stuart! We're so glad you enjoyed the food & cocktails. We would like to apologies for the service on that particular evening. Unfortunately, we were very short staffed which lead to the service being slower than usual and not up to our regular standards. Thank you for your patience and understanding, we hope to welcome you again.
We really enjoyed our food. We weren't entirely sure what we were ordering at times, as the menu didn't have any pictures (sorry), but the description gave us a reasonable idea.
We came here because after a Google search we found that they served the Matcha Mille Crepe Cake (after seeing it on Great British Bake Off). They weren't serving the matcha one the evening we dined but they had a mocha one, which was divine. So nice, we ordered an extra slice as takeaway to enjoy later.
Great food as always. Prefer the tables upstairs as it's a better ambience
A little gem - friendly staff and fairly priced food. You could pay double this price for a similar experience in London's west end and not eat half as well. Will definitely be going back.
A really enjoyable evening of superb dishes.
Fantastic food a d drink! Great vibe from the team
Lovey food, lovely service. Would definitely go again
The guy who makes the drinks is a g
Great food good service would definitely recommend
Great food, very authentic, staff were very attentive. Loved the experience!
Food was astounding as expected! The plates came out pretty consistently. Our waiter was amazing, as well as balancing many more tables by himself, making drinks and hosting, he was brilliant and really attentive! Chefs were friendly and helping the waiter out when they could so nice to see tram work!
Only critique would be that for the price, the amount of food was a bit small, however, flavours and quality of ingredients were second to none!
Fabulous little gem near brighton sea front, we were staying at a hotel near by and wanted to try somewhere different.
The food here is amazing and the service is great
Delicious, our first time at Kijira but definitely not the last
Superb food and a real variety of flavours. The very first duck dish we had was unbelievably tasty and I knew we were in for a good meal. We had a vegan with us and there was a great variety for them also. Ordered way to much food but that’s how much we were enjoying it so we just kept ordering.
Very tasty food and drinks, plus excellent service!
Customer service very attentive, food was incredible but slightly pricey at £65 for 2 people but ok as a one off treat
This place is UNBELIEVABLE! We have eaten out in many Japanese restaurants including some of the best in London and none of them even touched the food we had at Kujira. Servers and chefs are super nice and helpful, and food was so fresh and not heavy. Would definitely recommend as a place to try if your in Brighton!
The staff were great, very friendly and happy to help and the food was amazing!
This was our second visit to Kujira. We'd been wanting to go back for over a year and we weren't disappointed. Every effort has been made to make you feel safe and secure in regards to Covid19 and the food it just delicious. We couldn't pick a favourite dish but definitely try to scallops!
The food was exceptional and the service was considerate and had a personal
The restaurant has a real izakaya feel to it with a modern edge.
Service was very friendly, it was our first visit, so the menu was thoroughly explained to us, which was very helpful.
Lovely restaurant atmosphere, very modern, but nice to eat in.
Food was absolutely delicious, particular favourites were the chicken skin robata, and the gyoza. Fantastic value for money, given the amount of food we ordered, I would’ve expected the bill to be at least £50 more than it was.
We will absolutely be returning.
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.
