Stopped in as we came across it accidently. Was so good we returned a couple of days later. Food was great and service was spot on.

Read the reviews and took my wife for a weeknight sushi treat. Miso soup was flavorful (but the cafeteria soup spoon was bizarre). Started with soft shell crab and Ringo Nike (pork belly and mushroom). Both excellent. Then a wonderful order of maguro sashimi on ice. As good as I have had anywhere. Then the June roll, Yakima roll and Kuu roll to finish. All good but Kuu roll was best. Very creative rolls. Good wine and saki menu, should have a beer listing too. Enjoy !

Had my first visit to KUU. What a treat. The place is comfortable and visually stunning. The food is even more superlative. The box of special fish flown in from Tsukiji Market in Tokyo is amazing. Their signature Miso Cod is definitely worth a try. And get a Bloody Mary. Tremendous. Good list of specialty cocktails and wine, although didn't indulge today.

Service was top notch. While all the servers I'm sure a good, Christine was particularly nice and very helpful for us first time visitors. She made a great meal even better. Many thanks to Christine.

In short, you can't go wrong with this place.

Trendy decor, attentive service and very good maki. I didn't give the food quality a five because for the price, Kuu didn't wow me. We had raw trout ceviche, a few special makis, and fried soft shell crab. They are all delicious but not specially stand out from other gastronomical eateries in terms of creativity. Overall, it is a good place to try but probably not craving to go back again.

If you are looking for fine dining including sushi, this place is perhaps one the top 3 places in Houston to go. Parking is always available and they have a lunch menu that allows you to try their food and restaurant atmosphere/experience if you have a budget. Everything is delicious although a little expensive.
