After a bad dinner on a roof top some colleagues and I headed over to Kiku. In a mall but great sushi and sashimi. Great selection of drinks as well. Was nervous about sushi in Pittsburgh but really met expectations.

My husband, daughter and I ate at Kiku at Station Square last week. We ordered udon with tempora, swordsfish teriyaki, and a shrimp and veggie tempora plate. We also ordered the fried ice cream and a chocolate cake. Everything was delicious. It is a quiet, small restaurant with great service and a sushi bar. The plum wine was perfect with... More

We had a great experience sitting at the sushi bar where the sushi chef prepared our deliciously fresh sushi explaining as he went along the locations from where they procure their fresh fish. Unfortunately on this busy evening we arrived as he served the last of his eel but he replaced our selection with one of his favorites which is... More

Tucked inside a mall-like building you wouldn't expect to find gourmet, but not expensive Japanese food. At a nearby hotel for a conference and searched for dining nearby. Started with vegetable Tempura with a delicately spiced not salty dipping cause, got a nice variety of vegetables,: green bean, sweet potato, squash, and others. Miso was next, against nicely flavored. Finally... More

Kiku's is a must visit place every time I am in Pittsburgh. I was first brought by Japanese friends who found it a home away from home. All the food is good, the fish fresh and the sushi and sashimi most appetising

My daughter and I stopped at Kiku after an afternoon performance in the theatre district. We were not disappointed! 1. Under utilized, the restaurant has been quiet any time we've gone. The decor is natural wood and natural colors. It is easy on the eyes. 2. The sushi chef is wonderful. Presentation is gorgeous. 3. The servers are attentive, but... More

I love going to Kiku Restaurant. Have been going there for over 22 years. I grew up in Hawaii and lived in Japan and this is the most authentic food I have gotten to eat outside of Hawaii and or Japan.

At Kiku's at Station Square, real Japanese sushi chefs work with only the finest ingredients and the freshest fish to create luscious dishes! The wait staff is not only friendly--they are incredibly knowledgeable about what they serve. Everything is authentic, including the background music, which is Japanese. An absolute must in Western Pennsylvania!

Nice little Japanese restaurant. I recommend the Sukiyaki, a fondue with steak, vegetable, and rice noodles.
