A gem for Japanese food lovers. Excellent food quality, great value. Just remember to bring your own booze.

Delicious food, friendly staff, good atmosphere, and good value. Would highly recommend! Ichiban set (if I remember correctly) is the one to go for.

This is a great little authentic restaurant. We have enjoyed some of the larger Japanese restaurants in London, but Kitsu is simple, delicious, friendly and very reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family and would come back again and again. Don't be put off by the bin outside. Its great indoors!

Kitsu is somewhere you could easily walk straight past - we nearly did. It looks nothing like a restaurant from the outside, much less a Japanese one, instead resembling a cafe where you might get a decent greasy fry up. However, the food is amazing - we had a fantastic pork rice bowl with the most succulent, well seasoned pork... More

Went to Kitsu with 4 friends from London - amazed by choice and quality of sushi, the noodles were also great. Strongly recommended the salmon lover dish and menu choice M23 - friends are now jealous I can get amazing sushi for half price of London. Definitely worth visiting, staff very knowledgable when offering recommendations.

We went to Kitsu yet again last night - our default option for meals out in Tunbridge Wells. Food was as superb as ever. I'm taking my son there for lunch today and we're going back again for an evening meal in a couple of weeks. Price is so reasonable. £32 last night for loads of sushi and corkage on... More

we went there for a meal at Kitzu after we haven't been there for a long time. Food was great, service was ok. Our kid didn't finish the meal so we have decided to take away the food and when it come to the bill. We were shocked that restaurant was charging 20p for take away box. Do you mean... More

Really great food and byo is great to have with minimal corkage. Food is always fresh and full of flavour but tables are packed tightly together and always feel rushed however for a quick lunch or something quick in the evening before heading somewhere else it is excellent.

With only a few tables Kitsu feels kind of like dining in a good friend's living room. It's intimate and quick - our order was taken immediately and we had miso soup within 10 minutes and a sharing sushi platter not much after that. The food was absolutely delicious, rich in flavour with substantial portion sizes. We had teriyaki beef... More
