    We waited a little bit for a table to be free even though we had a reservation. But the waiters were very nice and gave to me and my friends free drinks because of that waiting time. Food and service was excellent. I highly recommend this place!

    Great food, kind and attentive service. A small and hidden gem for Japanese cuisine lovers. A bit crowded, but understandable because of the quality. This is the only thing that could be improved. Bravo!

    The food and the atmosphere were both great! I loved the cocktail and the dishes. The ribeye was delicious and tasty, also the kfc ku chicken. However, the service was hectic and extremely slow, and got two different descriptions of the daily cocktail and it was very confusing many times during the evening. It was a bit chaotic. However the food was great and the atmosphere was really nice. Only the service gave less “good”.

    Food arrives fast, service is friendly but the menu is quite limited. That doesn't mean the food isn't delicious though. Very nice place right in the center. Recommended.

    Food is great and tasty, and the restaurant looks pretty good, even though the tables are quite close to each other. The service leaves something to be desired. The waiters were inattentive and quite rude when we asked what certain parts of the menu included. The manager was a lot friendlier though.

    The dishes are overpriced if you take into account the quantity of food given. The quality of the food das good but not excepcional.

    I have visited Ku quite often , food is consistently good, but the service was so bad last time. They forgot a dish, didn’t give us refills and simply ignored us. Even had to walk up to the bar to pay, as he never gave us the check after asking for it (even though he walked passed us 5 times)

    I hate leaving reviews, but this place was so surprising. It's a cute, chill, very modern and chic resto-bar. Great weekly specials with daily cocktail. The mains were really good, but the sushi options could be priced better.

    Ku is fantastic. We ordered a ton of different dishes and everything was spot-on. We eat Japanese food all around the world and this was an excellent place for sushi, Japanese snacks and drinks. Recommended are the King Ku Sliders, KU Fried Chicken and Hotel California roll. We will definitely be back!

    Very nice staff but very poor service. Not really a sushi restaurant as much as an Asian fusion place that serves a few sushi dishes. Enjoyed the meal but would never go back.

    The sushi was very fresh. The tempura was light and tasty. Service was friendly.
