    Amazing setting and beautiful vegan cuisine. Took my non vegan friends and they all loved it. The service was spot on and super helpful. The only issue that I had was with the table setting, as we were a group that of 7 and we had a big 5 people round table and a smaller 2 people round table, so it felt like we were separated and even though we had a lovely time, it would have been better to be seated on a bigger table. Nothing major and I still strongly recommend Kusaki, but perhaps something to address for big-ish dining parties

    Staff was friendly and polite. However. we felt rushed by them all the time. 2 different staff came to take our order when we were still reading the menu. Trying to take the plates off the table without asking and evidently we were still eating. They brought the bill without us asking. Our dinning experience was good overall. I hope to come back and have a better relaxed experience as the food is delicious.

    My first time at Kusaki yesterday but I was with one other person who had been 5 or 6 times before. To say the food was outstanding is an understatement. I have a gluten intolerance yet was delighted to find out that most of the menu was available to choose from. ( Do ask for details though as some menu items not marked GF were in fact ok) If you are a meat eater, I doubt that you will think of meat once! The tastes and the beautiful presentation defy description! Rather than choosing one large main dish each, we opted for four small plates shared between two. Our choices were: Tempora veg, Watermelon suika suteki, Gochujang Shitake and Nigiri, plus you get a complementary pot of miso soup each that was fabulous. We shared one portion of japanese syle cheesecake which was light and creamy and a joy to all the senses. Kusaki is now on my list of all time faves... Need to book a few days in advance even for weekday evenings, as they are very polular!

    Looking forward to trying this but was disappointed. Food took ages to arrive & seemed to be staggered: the curry order seemed to be delayed until there were another 2 curries ordered at another table; we had to wait 40 mins for the curry whilst the other dishes we had ordered & wished to share with each other had to go cold. It was a bit miserable as no-one told us this was the system in place & we weren't given updates. The dishes were small sized & only 1 tasted very good, the others were mediocre and over-priced. The prices were high and didn't reflect the food and service we received. The staff were nice but a bit distracted and didn't keep us informed about delays.

    Had an absolutely stunning anniversary meal at Kusaki Japanese vegan restaurant. 💚 Every dish completed to maximum yumminess. What an interior! Kusaki means ‘plants’ in Japanese so they went for it with the full faux cherry blossom tree! We went for small plates, cocktails and desserts, all absolutely delicious. Didn’t photograph the watermelon steak, but I loved it. The Karaage oyster mushroom, a bit like salt and pepper squid was absolutely amazing and so was the Aubergine Dengaku. We even got a free anniversary Prosecco each and a little miso soup bowl. The staff were really lovely too. All round winner!
