    One of my favourite restaurants in Brighton. Staff always give a warm welcome and are attentive and knowledgeable throughout service. The food is always absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. A great cocktail and wine selection. Had a wonderful time there with a friend recently, we both enjoyed the food and ambience. Thoroughly recommend.

    Went to Kusaki for a friend's birthday, and didn't even realise it was plant-based until looking at the menu. But all the food was absolutely amazing, full of flavour and lots of it! The price does start to add up when you order lots of small dishes to share alongside sushi dishes and larger dishes, but I think it's well worth the money. I recommend buying several dishes and sharing, because you're going to want to try everything! The waiters and bartenders were so friendly, and couldn't be more helpful. Had good recommendations for food and wine, and made our time really special. Thank you!

    Book for graduation dinner on Friday evening. Really nice decor and ambiance. Met by friendly staff and our waitress was exceptional explaining all the dishes and being attentive. Food was visibly beautiful and the flavors were amazing. Highlights were the fried tofu and, mock tails and potato pave. A great experience and will definitely be back again.

    Good to see an interesting and thought out menu. Overall the food was good but not fantastic. A couple of dishes from around 12 dishes stood out. It was quiet so ambiance was what it was. Service was good and staff were friendly but could have been better, menus were still on the table when the standing platter was brought out, and still had not ordered main dishes. It took a while for initial drinks order to be taken (20 mins). All in all it was a good experience but I will think twice about coming back in regards to quality of food vs price point.

    This was our 1st visit to this restaurant. We were given a gift voucher as a Christmas present and as middle of January is our wedding anniversary decided perfect timeto use it. What a treat. We weren't sure what to order however the advice we received was just right. Started with cocktails which not only looked wonderful but tasted great. Beautiful presented food which tasted every bit as good as it looked. Will certainly return

    Some food was really good some other food we had to shove it down our throats, it was really hard to like, this is not about veganism, my partner is vegan. The sushi where the rice was fried was very weird, the sushi with chickpea inside also massively weird. We had vegan sushi elsewhere and always liked it. I think the wine was average. Cocktails very good. Service poor: they forgot to bring the drunken rice, we are not even sure if we paid or not. The best dish was the aubergines, but to be honest that's just pepper bamboo, I can do that myself, nothing special.

    Incredibly tasty, beautifully presented food. Love how it’s completely veggie so we could eat anything on the menu. Came for my boyfriends birthday who’s a veggie and it felt really special. Great staff who were attentive but not intrusive. Totally recommend for an upmarket, special occasion :) thanks to kusaki for making our night
