The four seasons influence every aspect of Japanese art and culture. At Kakui, we maintain this tradition by creating unique dishes using the freshest local ingredients. As the seasons change so does our menu, taking advantage of the local abundance. In this way, we are creating a contemporary cuisine that combines Japanese traditions with the best the Bay Area has to offer.

Good service. Sushi is mediocre. It could be so much better. Sushi chefs appear overwhelmed and it impacts the quality of the food.

It was great but impossible to have a private conversation because of the way the tables are set

I always order my favorites: edamame, warm mushroom salad (once again not available) miso soup and gyoza. I request the order I want them served and request that they not be delivered together, but again that did not happen so I had to push my salad aside and eat the hot items. I can understand if it was a busy evening but there was only one other occupied table. I regularly come to the restaurant and have introduced several people so I wish for two things.....warm mushroom salad and my service request to be honored.

There was only 1 server initially, then there was 2. And, we had to wait a long time to get any service. The food wait yummy, but the service not so much.

Delicious and elegant food, interesting sake menu, and helpful wait staff. We had a party of six. Our order came out well paced, and we all enjoyed the meal.

Our whole family loves Kakui and always orders exactly the same things! So much so that most of the waiters know our order before we reach our seats!

This local neighborhood gem is a cut above the average Japanese / sushi joint. Great selection, great quality, and great service overall. There is always a bit of room for improvement in each area but this has been a reliable place to go for over a decade. The menu selection is larger and better than most. I think my only quibble is the wine and beer list is a little small and could use a couple of additions to round them out.

Service is always great fast and friendly. All the rolls are all delicious and super fresh sushi. The Decour is really nice you feel like a San Francisco sushi spot in Montclair.
