Such great sushi and good for all occasions. It’s great they are on opentable because there are definitely times you need a reservation. I’ve never been disappointed with a dish!

Great food. Braised pork belly is top notch.

Kakui is one of our favorite restaurants! Fresh fish, great quality of meat and vegetables superbly cooked and presented. The only thing I would suggest is that during the winter months, there be a curtain/barrier to stop the draft from hitting the patrons directly seated in front of the door. We got it every time someone opened the door!

We have eaten here often and always have a delicious meal. From bowls of garlic edamame, to fish collars, delicious Brussels sprouts, wonderful tasty sushi and sashimi to the lovely lists of hot and cold sake, this is a lovely small Japanese restaurant with friendly, warm service. Because it is relatively small it never gets noisy. The ambiance, including fantastic floral displays, is great for a quiet evening of wonderful food. Some may think it’s pricey. We think it’s terrific value for the fine food served. We will keep going, even though there are two other sushi places within a couple of blocks of Kakui. They get our business every time.

I can't believe restaurants still use cheap fake crab for their meal and not even an option to have sushi roll with real crab? foods were hit and miss so I can't recommend it

what a find in Montclair! although our GPS took us about a block away and you would really miss this place if you weren't looking hard for it. we walked past it twice! But once we got there -- wonderful! the food is amazing. service was excellent. I will definitely go here again!

Delicious food. Sometimes the food is a bit slow to come, but the wait staff is very nice.
