kitaro surf & turf & sushi
Executive Chef and owner John Kitaro has over 30 years’ experience specializing in preparation of exquisite sushi dishes. He brings to your table not only the best sushi, but also stunning presentations of each dish that comes to your table.
Our new and expanded menu successfully marries extraordinary cuisine in an exquisite setting. Asian Fusion creations, a large selection of top quality steaks, lobster, sushi & much more. We believe that we have created the best of both Modern Asian cuisine and an upscale steakhouse for your dining pleasure.
I always enjoy myself when I dine here. The food and drinks never disappoints and the servers are always pleasant. Can’t wait to go back.
Long waits for the server and the food was overpriced for portion size. Taste was good for most dishes, but a few were just okay.
Great food and service.
Great night at Kitaro. Food and Service was exceptional.
Great review for Kitaro and we thank you so much for it as well as the recommendation and 5 stars!!!
This place is so awesome! Food and Ambience were just top notch
Many thanks for your AWESOME review! We really appreciate you letting us know how your stay was with us!! We hope to see you back soon!!!
The menu is so diverse with different fusion foods. The food was absolutely delicious & the Crab Rangoon was great! The ambience was beautiful.
WOO HOO! We absolutely loved your review, thank you for the kind words about the food and ambiance!! Fusion is a perfect word to describe some of our menu items and we are happy to hear you embraced them!! Come back and see us again soon!!!
Delicious, comfy, sleek, and worth it!
We loved your review of few, but effective, words! Thank you for the awesome review!!
This place never fails to please. We ate outside with patio dining, I’d much prefer inside but we had a 70° day in November. Covid times make it safer to be outside. The food was delicious I had the luncheon special bento box. Tons of food for the money. My daughter had the salmon nigiri. Ginger salad dressing is thin but delicious also.
Your review didn't fail to please and we can't thank you enough for posting your review and awarding us the 5 stars, both mean so much to us! We have definitely been spoiled by the warmer temperatures and are thankful that you chose us to dine at during these sunny times!!
Great place to go !!!

Wonderful food and staff!!
Woo Hoo! Thank you so much for posting your response and 5 stars!! Come back and see us again soon!!!
Normally I love it but this was beyond disappointing. My daughters filet and shrimp came out at least 20 min prior to my meals and my friends meal. My daughter finished all of her food and we sat and waited for ours. Our drinks (which were $12) we horrible. Bury tastes like soap. I don’t care about paying $12 for a drink if it’s worth it. My Mexican roll tasted spoiled and the rest of them were good.
Hello, I am so very sorry to hear that your visit this time was not a 5 star experience. It is not our standard to have a meal come out before everyone else's unless requested so I apologize for this. I hope that you were able to let your server know of the issues regarding the drink and Mexican maki to help resolve it during your stay. We hope that you can give us another try and hope to see you again!
Food was delicious!
Greetings! Thank you for letting us know you had a 5 star experience with us!! We hope to see you again soon!!!
Great food, great service, great time with friends!
Hi RoseC! We loved hearing you had a nice time here and we believe great times are definitely a side effect to being with fantastic friends!! We hope to see all of you again soon!!!
Food was delicious! They had many options to choose from. The only down side was service was a little slow but besides that a great experience.
Hello Elaina! Many thanks for your feedback regarding your stay with us!! We hope that you can see us again to experience the service that is 5 star worthy!!!
Food was great! Little pricey so be prepared to spend a little of $100 for two
Hi MattG! We really appreciate your post and awarding us 5 stars!! Thank you!!!
Great food! Great service!
Hello shellyf! Thank you for the "GREAT" review and awarding us 5 stars!! We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know how things went and hope to see you back again soon!!!
The food was amazing but the service was awful. Took almost 2 1/2 hours and we had difficulty just getting things we asked for like a knife, our complete order or another round of drinks. I will say there only appeared to be a couple of servers and they had to cover the inside and outside dining areas.. There looked to be many takeout orders which could have jammed up the kitchen as well. We asked the busser twice for napkins and utensils but we never received them. Unfortunate way to spend my birthday dinner.
Hello DawnR, we are very sorry to hear your birthday dinner didn't go well. It might have been that perfect storm of staffing and backed up orders, but regardless, we are truly sorry that your special day was nothing short of 5 stars.
Fantastic food! Great service! Nice selection of specialty drinks and vast selection of sushi. Fresh and delicious!!!!
A great place to get Sushi! We love going to Kitaro any chance we get!
Love kitaro the food is great every time we go
It was a great dinner, the sushi was awesome and the wine was excellent.
Awesome service and food for Indiana. I give this place 10 stars for being proficient when it come to customer service and quality of food. Kitaro has mad my list of favorites when guest come town.
Downtown Chicago feel but right here on nwi ! The prices are a bit high forever the quality of food is well worth it! The food is absolutely delicious! No complaints, service was friendly, music was peaceful, and outdoor seating was available! Will be going back!
Delicious and fresh sushi, great exotic mai-tai’s, and nice outdoor patio
Hello! Thank you for not only giving us the 5 stars, but also letting us know what you enjoyed during your stay with us!! We hope you can join us again soon in the patio before the weather turns (which, here in the Midwest, could be anytime!)!!!
Our server was TOP NOTCH!!! Would definitely recommend!!
Hi kathleen! Woo hoo!! We couldn't ask for more than your recommendation for us and the service!! Many thanks for the 5 stars!!!
Awwwww, TashaC! Thank you for making your Birthday a 5 star experience with us!! We hope we don't have to wait a year to see you again!!
Fantastic birthday dinner
We are so happy that a birthday was celebrated with us! Thank you for letting us know you spent your special day with us and awarding us 5 stars!!
This is my 4th time coming here. 3 out of the 4 times it was so amazing. This last time it was really great. That lobster tempura is my new favorite.
Hi DanS! Thank you so much for being a repeat customer, it truly is such a compliment!! We hope to see you a 5th time soon!!! Since you have the lobster tempura as your favorite, you can also find it in our Knucklehead and Kitaro Surf & Turf makis!!!
Great experience on my birthday. Would come back ❤
Hi KaylaJ! Happy Belated Birthday!! Thank you so much for celebrating your special day with us, what an incredible compliment!!! We can't wait for you to join us again!!!!!
Food/service always good per usual. Only thing was, there was an annoying overly loud guy in the bar area— being extra loud and boisterous about neighboring casinos not paying out. Other than that, everything was great!
Greetings! We appreciate you giving us the 5 stars and letting us know most of your visit with us was enjoyed!! If this should happen again, please feel free to let your server know and we will do what we can to make your dining experience better!!!
We HIGHLY recommend the Crab Cake. We had never had anything like it - I don't like Crab Cakes and I can't wait to have it again.
All employees wore face masks and made sure outdoor tables were placed to observe social distancing - important to us.
We will definitely return to try other things on the menu.
Greetings, TomH! We're so happy you enjoyed the crab cake in our socially distanced restaurant and look forward to having you back!! Many, many, many thanks for your 5 stars!!!
Awesome place!!! Elegant, yet simple!!
Hello! Many, many, many thanks for your 5 star review!!
Service was extremely slow and tables were not spaced appropriately.
Hello AngelaW, I'm sorry to hear that your stay with us wasn't a 5 star experience. As for our tables, we do our best to ensure social distancing is being adhered to using the CDC's guidelines for spacing, barricades, etc,.. I hope that you can perhaps give us another opportunity to provide a better serving experience in our social distanced environment!
Kitaro is spectacular. It’s not just dining, it was a food experience! Our waiter explained the menu really well and answered all my questions. I wanted to be more adventurous so I chose an entree that allowed the chef select what I was served. I was not disappointed! Everything was delicious. I also had an oyster shooter, which was probably my favorite thing there. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
Hello! We are over the moon happy that you had what we want for all of our customers,...an EXPERIENCE!! Thank you so much for letting us know how your stay was with us, we really appreciate the wonderfully kind words you expressed!! Please come back and see us again soon!!!
Happy with service of waiter, however was disappointed when an outdoor table was requested and then the hostess told me they don’t see the special requests written in on the Open Table sight. Then why have it if you can’t view it.
Hi LisaL! As much as we liked hearing that you were happy with our service, we are sorry for the misunderstanding regarding the patio seating request and would like to make a recommendation: after you go through OpenTable app and select your time, there will be an option that pops up to "Select your seating", which is where you would need to opt for "Outdoor Seating". The system will pre-assign a table automatically versus putting it as a note in the special requests section.
