Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 October 2016

The outside of Kikis does not do justice to the food inside! We usually have sushi although the menu has lots of items. Service is friendly and fast. The restaurant is small and usually busy although we usually do not have to wait too long. The only small drawback is that they do not accept phone orders, so to take out, you have to order and wait.

Came here on a recommendation of a fellow foodie.

I don't really know what I was expecting since I saw that it didn't have as great of a review as I would've thought, considering it came highly recommended. But I know that sometimes the ratings don't really match how I ultimately feel about a place - positive or negative.

It's a cozy little eatery. Wish there were more images to get an idea of how some dishes are. Coming from a big metro area (LA) w/ a wide variety of noodles (that's what I was craving), I was slightly concerned that I was going to be disappointed. Fortunately, the BF and I were not! Yay!!

I ordered the TEMPURA UDON. If you like tempura and you like udon, you will definitely enjoy this dish! The broth and noodles were on point; and the shrimp and veggie tempura batter and sauce were terrific! The tempura was much better than many others I've had in LA - that's sad to me :-/

The BF ordered the BEEF CHA-PU-RU. It's a mix of some veggies, slices of beef, and rice. It's diff than what he's used to but said it was okay (as are most dishes w/ him -_-) lol!

So, w/ this restaurant, don't let the rating fool ya! And check out their drink menu!

My friends and I went to have dinner last night. We ordered baked calamari for our appetizer along with a bottle of cold Japanese mango sake. The baked calamari was very tender and flavorful, perfect compliment to the sake we had. The sake was sweet and smooth, as if you were drinking a mango juice; it was so good that we had to order another bottle.
For my dinner, I had a spicy tuna bowl, a very tasty raw tuna with soy sauce on rice. The rest of my friends ordered Japanese style udon which they enjoyed very much as well.

We really enjoy eating at this quaint little Japanese restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. While we are not Japanese, we have been to Japan and feel that the food is very authentic compared to any other Japanese places around town. The ambiance is pleasant, the servers are friendly and the food is outstanding. Sushi is available, but is does not take center stage, a role filled by the tremendous selections of entrees you've likely never experienced. We try to pick different meals each time we come and we have not been disappointed by any of them.

The entrees are overpriced. The restaurant doesn't smell clean. And they charge a $2 up charge if you want takeaway. Skip this and try Kokoros up the street instead.
