Kitani has CLOSED thankfully. They never were on the same page and did not seem to care much about the paying customer. The first question was always, "Are you local".......

If spawning salmon in the local creeks were flinching their way thru a hot summer sun they'd be fresher than the fish at this newspaper wrap grade sushi spot. Bizarre only captures the notable flaws in this prison food experience. Do yourself a favor and...More

There is no excuse that this Sushi Restaurant can't be a good one. The place looked shabby and the fish was.... unremarkable.... Don't bother.

The fish WAS NOT fresh: the hamachi was a bit slimey; the tuna was greying some; california role "crab" was flavorless; even the sushi-rice was over-vinegered and sharp. Also, I picked up an unambiguous 'loathing vibe' from the women who served us. Sounds strange for...More

I have to say this was the worst restaurant experience my husband and I have ever had. We were staying across the street at the wonderful Indian Springs and after a nice, relaxing day of taking the waters we were ready for a mid-afternoon snack....More
