    The sushi grade fish was fresh and the nigiri nicely prepared and presented. The dobin mushi soup was very good but too small for the price. The morimaki was over-compacted and the rice was soft and mushy. The shrimp tempura was overcooked. The wagyu beef gyoza was like a pot sticker and needed more complex seasoning. The tables are rather small for groups of four. Everything is a la carte and our waitress seemed rushed and wasn't too helpful assisting with ordering. I would have liked to see more value combinations (i.e. bento boxes) on the menu and would have eaten more if prices weren't so expensive. This restaurant is very convenient if staying at the Westin hotel.

    KUU has the best and freshest fish in Houston. Our experience was wonderful and the service was five star! I would highly recommend this place to fish and meat lovers as well.

    Food was good but super weird waiter. He kept touching my shoulder multiple times and like holding it there, it was super super weird and made me very uncomfortable. He would ask if what else we wanted and place is arm around my shoulder for a good minute, super weird. Will not be going back.

    Great birthday night with my family. The night was enhanced by Julio. His service was great, recommendations on point and tequila knowledge strong. The restaurant was great, he was better
