This place is definitely one of Barcelona's gems. The sushi was so fresh and the service is beyond good. Our waiter Leo was one of the best servers I have ever experienced, he was so kind and attentive. I will definitely come back here if I get the chance ! 10/10

I live very close to this restaurant so I use to go at least once per month, the service is excellent, and quality / price probably is the best in BCN for a japanese restaurant . Amazing tuna tartar, tatakis and the scallops with foi are from outer space :) .As always I'll be back!

Was at Kuo for dinner with my wife. I have worked in Japan and although I can't say that the quality matches that of a good Tokyo restaurant, I think it's fair to say that Kuo is a very good and affordable (sushi is always expensive so it is not cheap) option in Barcelona. Although the menu has some some... More

The place is located in a nice area. It is nice but a bit small. Never mid that. If the place does not impress whoever you are taking there, the food will. The selection is great. They offer Japanese delicacies; not just sushi, also veal fillet, Japanese style. You can find the classics and more innovative creations. Sake and good... More

They seem to have changed the menu recently. This had been our favorite spot for sushi in the city and it's still up there but the service seems to have slipped (forgotten items; dishes arriving to the wrong table) and the silliest thing is the fact that they never have enough magnets for their magnet ordering system. Just order more!... More

Nice place, lovely staff and excellent food. The best sushi of Barcelona with any doubt! Specially recommended octopus dishes.

Visited this month after a few months of not going. Food still yummy and varied but the service is really shocking. To add to that, the manager is very aggressive if you complain and never seems to be able to offer an apology. I'd still go for the food but management and service of food needs improving.
