Kiku Sushi

Situated in the new Crossroads Entertainment Complex in Chino Hills, Kiku Sushi is not a destination restaurant by any means, but they do serve some decent sushi. A feature that is offered is an all you can eat sushi option for $22.95, $17.95 for lunch during the week. What sets it apart from Todai, Onami or any other “sushi buffets” is that the sushi at Kiku Sushi is made at the sushi bar to order.

The all you can eat feature excludes uni, toro and ame ebi, but otherwise the entire sushi menu is yours for the taking. They do also offer a lot of rolls at Sushi Kiku, for those who are into rolls.

There are also cooked food options included in the all you can eat option. Included are tempura, chicken teriyaki, beef teriyaki, tonkatsu and several other dishes.

Although they don’t offer the highest quality of fish, the fish is fresh, has no fishy scent and is not stringy. The fish has nice color and a nice sheen to it. The rolls here are bathed in a rather sweet sauce, which tends to overpower the delicate taste of the fish. Because the sushi is made to order, it doesn’t sit out for extended periods of time like at other sushi buffets.

For decent sushi, Kiku Sushi is a worthy option. The restaurant is very clean, and the servers are friendly and professional.
