The sushi and sashimi were of poor quality, hard/fibrous toro tuna, dry lobster in the roll, rolls ”disarming” while trying to grab them with the chopsticks. Table was never cleaned after the plates were brought to the table.

We will not be coming back or recommending this place.

Something changed at this restaurant. Orders didn’t come out properly and service was very slow. The menu also changed from our last visit.....much less choices. We used to love this restaurant, but it’s no longer the same.

I was very put off by the fact that the tea was not brewed, but served in a teabag with hot water. My dining partner had a curry that, while quite tasty, skimped on veggies and had chicken which was roasted and then cut up and tossed into the sauce. My duck, on the other hand, was prepared well and the sauce was very nice. We know of other Japanese and Thai restaurants that we prefer and will go to them in the future.

The place was empty when we arrived but the food presentation was excellent. People did come in but the restaurant was somewhat empty, thus the noise level was quiet. Food portions are generous. Salad with ginger dressing was the only non-taste food item but the entrees and miso soup more than made up for it.

Food was delicious , very tasty and fresh sushi .
The only complaint is they brought our food before clearing the table with the appetizer plates so we had to call someone to come clear the table .

Met a group of friends for a Friday evening get together. I made the reservation a couple of weeks in advance and confirmed the day before. They really seemed annoyed that we chose their restaurant. The food was fine. The server never said hi, welcome, anything. She just stood there with her electronic pad. No one said goodbye when we left. Nothing. I felt totally unwelcome. Plus the tip was added to our check and no one alerted us to that. I find that very rude.

The ambiance is nice with nice seat arrangement and lighting. The service is terrible. We sat for 15 minutes before the little gal with an iPad would come over and take our drink order. Then another 10 minutes for the appetizer order. We therefore paced the entree order at the same time to avoid a long wait. The food was mediocre. Nothing spectacular. The wonton soup and noodle soups were good. We ordered 2 chicken noodle soups and 1 was brought with the win in soup and I had to hail out to the little gal 5 minutes after to ask for the 2nd chicken noodle soup. Water and drinks were repeatedly slow in refilling.

The sushi entrees were okay. The price for value is not good at all. The pad Thai was okay. The Popeyes chicken was not explained as being made with coconut milk but tasted okay as well. Again water and drinks were not refilled without asking.

A different waitress was assigned to our table after I sat there shaking my head about the terrible service. She gave a discount but that does not wipe out the slow service. The iPad gal still has not shown her face.

Possibly the worst service I have ever received. The staff from top to bottom had no idea what was going on. From ordering taking forever, drinks not coming, a bottle of wine was presented and removed for 15 minutes till I got up to ask where it was. Our entree’s were so slow - we left. We were beaten out the door by other parties have similar bad experience. Will never go there again and would recommend to everyone to try somewhere else.

I made our reservation through OpenTable. The day before we were to eat at Kiko, someone from the restaurant called me to confirm, indicating that they were overbooked and going to be very crowded. The person told me to “make sure you are exactly on time” or they might not be able to seat us at all. My SO and I arrived 10 minutes early. We were seated right away because the resatuarant was nearly empty. (Insert eye roll here) We ordered the sushi Boat for 2 and an order of lobster pad Thai to share. 55 minutes after ordering, there was no food in sight. I asked our absentee waitress if it was going to be much longer because we had to leave soon. She said it would be at least another 20 minutes. I don’t mind waiting for good food, but not 75 minutes for average sushi. She rushed our pad thai order, we ate in 10 minutes, paid, and left without any acknowledgement. Poor service, average food, wouldn’t recommend, won’t be back. Ever.

Made a reservation and when we got to the restaurant, couldn’t find the hostess to tell her we were all there.By the time we got to tell the hostess we had arrived, she suddenly went behind the bar to make drinks. It took over a half hour to finally get seated. The food was average at best and the waitress would constantly disappear. I would definitely not recommend Kiko

Sadly, the quality of the food just keeps declining. When it first opened, it was incredible, we went often. This was our last "second chance" visit. The food is just not good, the portions are skimpy. You get a plate of rice with a sliver of fish. Not worth it anymore.

Heard very mixed reviews on Kiko's service, so was a bit apprehensive, but no issues at all during our visit - a very nice experience. We were right on time for our reservation and our table was ready immediately. Service was attentive, prompt and cordial; sushi was fresh, the booth was roomy and comfortable. We made a reservation...I'd recommend doing so, as I was surprised to see the restaurant busy even on a Thursday night (in May after season) and we would have been waiting, had we just walked in. It can get a bit loud...but we were seated near a large, very boisterous group, so the noise level was particularly "energetic" that night.

If you love japanese and thai food this is a restaurant you should visit. Our appetizers and main course were very good. We tried three pepper spice and it was very spicy, Perfect for me! Loved it! The service could not have been better. The abience is very pleasant. Everyone was very friendly and wanted to make us happy. We will definately go again and we will recommend it to friends.

If you want great food, this is the place. If you want unprofessional, sub-par, inexperienced wait staff , this is also the place.
It looks like the hostess is also the bartender , who is also a server, who is also a menu-gatherer and order taker.
Everyone is running around doing a little bit of everything, but nothing done well.
Been there twice and when I checked in with the hostess it was as if it were her first night- and it wasn't the same girl.
The sushi is outstanding, so if you're tolerant of really bad service it's worth going

A great evening filled with laughter, fun, sake and excellent food! Outstanding sushi... lobster lava, smiling Mona Lisa with generous portions and beautiful presentation. J. Lohrs red wine which is excellent is available at a reasonable price. Young inexperienced waitress was the only downside. She got help from Annie, the Manager who is outgoing and very efficient. One of our family's favorite restaurant in Florida.

we showed up for a birthday dinner for four people at 7:15 and were promptly seated. By 7:45 we still had not ordered and by 8:15 we left, having received water and ice tea only. we asked for the manager to come to our table at 7:45 but she never came by (and was on the phone when we walked out). yes, we told them why we were leaving; no one seemed to care. (we overheard two other tables asking for the manager, too). an off night? Maybe, but a good manager should have followed us out to apologize, at the very least!

Discovered this restaurant only a few months before moving away from Plantation. Expect a long wait for table, even with reservation. The food is excellent, but you will wait a long time for it to arrive, so the wait is worth it as long as you are not in a hurry. Open Table reservations often are not registered, acknowledged, or mishandled, so points earned are not added to your account total without dogged follow up directly with restaurant. After needing to follow up this way after two dining experiences, and failing to follow up on two subsequent dining experiences, I just stopped using Open Table to make the reservation (Open Table take note).
