The atmosphere is wonderful with an upbeat modern flair. The sushi is phenomenal and I believe it’s the only place in Naperville you can get black rice. The staff is super friendly and attentive., despite the fact they are short staffed. Every thing I’ve ever tried there (and we’ve been going for years) has been delicious and fresh.

Sushi was average but I’ve gotten better at supermarkets. The wasabi was dried out and slightly brown. The ginger was yellow, not pink. For the price, a bit disappointed.

It was a great time. Celebrated a birthday. Our Hibachi Chef was outstanding. He even did flips for the children playing catch with shrimp. We’ll definitely return again.

Everything was great and my kids had a great time, the only "issue" we had was you did not have those Japanese Bubble Pops. My kids were looking forward to those but they had a great time nonetheless. We are so glad you are still in business and making great food.

The service was extremely slow. Chicken fried rice was horrible too much soy sauce.
The vegetables for the appetizer were not cooked completely.
They didn’t sing happy birthday or take picture until we asked.
Very disappointed in the whole experience as it was our first coming there for my daughter’s birthday. We will not be back.

Sent back one of the rolls we ordered due to taste. Noisy and because the hibachi tables were so close left the restaurant smelling greasy. Also
Why do they ask when reserving and while at the restaurant if it’s a special occasion if they don’t do anything for you? Was our anniversary. The waiter must have been new because did not know much regarding the sushi menu, which is fine but was very slow.

I wish I could say better things about our experience. I saw good ratings so was expecting a delicious dining experience. Our waiter was decent and so were the appetizers. But the main meal was very disappointing. We sat in the sushi area so maybe it would have been better to sit in the hibachi area. Nonetheless, we won’t be back. Pricey meal for what we got.

1. Made reservations so quickly seated
2. Good service quality
3. Excellent Sushi and Garlic Shrimp
4. Hibachi food was bland but good quality raw materials
5. Chef did not do a lot of show activities besides onion volcano and fireworks. No juggling

Good food, waitress was nice but we came in hungry since resevation was 8pm but ended up waiting for another half an hour or so before seated. So very late dinner altogether. If reservations are made and needed, it should be available when customers arrives.

Have been going here for years and always enjoy not only the food but atmosphere too. However this last visit left sour taste in mouth as our waitress was not very attentive requiring us to always track her down to get drink refills.

We have a close group of friends …. And there is 10 of us. This has always been one of our personal and group favorites. Good food, we can sit together, we can talk because of the u shaped hibachi tables. It is a win for everyone.

Everything was good from the food and service to the venue. two things could be improved that are apparently known by the staff. Firstly, virgin cocktails need to be offered for customers. secondly there needs to be significantly more vegetarian offerings, and the chefs need to understand how to cater for vegetarians. in other words cook the vegetarian meals first before putting meat on the same hotplates.

Server was a bit impatient due to it being young group of high school kids celebrating homecoming. Despite their parents being regular customers who literally spend thousands of dollars at Kiku on an annual basis. Disappointing.
