My review for Kiku – I am so happy to have found another authentic Japanese restaurant serving delicious dishes and it is this restaurant located in the Le Meridien Hotel. My favourite cuisine is Japanese, so I was ecstatic to see that the restaurant was packed with Japanese guests, this gave me confidence that I was going to enjoy every bit of my dinner.
I ordered three different types of sashimi – hamachi, (yellowtail), salmon and octopus. The slices were large and it was all so fresh.
The smoked salmon salad was refreshing and I loved how the smoked salmon was seasoned lightly so it is not overly salty when I added some soy sauce or sesame dressing.
Finally, the grilled squid was so tasty and the mayo with chilli powder was the perfect sauce to go with it. I usually have it with creamy sesame sauce so I asked for the sauce on the side and found myself only using the mayo.
The rating I am giving this restaurant is 5/5.
I ordered the hamachi sashimi for 86DHS, salmon sashimi for 49DHS, octopus sashimi for 55DHS, smoked salmon salad for 48DHS, and the grilled squid for 45DHS.
I believe that the pricing of the dishes here was normal for the authentic Japanese dishes and the quality of each.
The service that I received was excellent and perfect throughout the whole time we were dining in. Our server, Sherry was on top of her game when it came to clearing our finished dishes and getting our drink orders.
The manager, Jack, was friendly and was always checking in on us to see if we were still happy.
The ambience of the restaurant was inviting and was filled with beautiful Japanese decor. There was outdoor and indoor seating, we sat inside, where we saw the large kimono on display.
