This restaurant moved a couple of years ago from its old location just across the street. At the time, they had in my opinion the best sushi chef in town and he was very creative with the food. In the new location (although much nicer with better decoration and an area for grills) the same chef seems more subdued, and... More

My wife and I first visited this restaurant shortly after it opened. The food was the best hibachi food we'd had (beating some really high-end, big-market hibachi in Dallas, Orlando, Boston, etc.). Unfortunately, the service was awful. We were seated next to a group of kids who were being swindled on their prom night. The manager came out, spoke to... More

The food and service were wonderful. We went there for lunch and the portion size was just right. The chef was fun and cooked our shrimp, scallops and steak to perfection. Would definitely go back.

Years ago, Kiku was one of the best in town for sushi. Unfortunately, they lost their soul when they moved to a bigger builder. It hasn't been the same ever since. The big issues have always been service and portion sizes. Tonight we ordered take out and my spouse and I had to literally spit out two pieces of nigiri.... More

Good Oriental with a focus on Japanese. Tasty Bento boxes. Good edamame. Worth a try a very handy to Springfield's central shopping area.

The staff makes you feel like family. The food has always been fabulous. The 'show' makes dinner fun. The atmosphere, in general, is top notch. Highly recommend the filet- there's no better filet in town!

April 2015. Hibachi show adequate but the other chefs seemed to be much more lively. We had a big group and by the end of the meal, almost everyone had been given something they didn't order or missed something they had. We were given extra food to make up for the errors and the gesture was appreciated. The checks were... More

My son took me here for my birthday - we had not been so used the occasion to try them out. The waiter was new and said so, but for the first half of the service everything was fine. Food was just OK, mine was not hot. We waited a very long time for the waiter to come back and... More

I enjoy having dinner at Kiku. The hibachi style is fun and the portions are generous. Especially love the sushi menu. The Kiku Roll is great to share with a friend. Will definitely be going back.

Don't waste your time, and money, by going to Kiku, when you can go to Osaka. The service was horrible. Our waiter took care of us long enough to get our orders and bring drinks, then we didn't see him until he brought the checks. He didn't even stop to see if anyone wanted another alcoholic beverage or soda refill.... More
