A Mayfair institution since 1978, Kiku continues to provide authentic, traditional Japanese cuisine of the highest quality. The yosenabe, a masterpiece by Head Chef Shiraishi, is a sumptuous feast where scallops, prawns, clams, and fish combine brilliantly with assorted mushrooms and silky smooth tofu, all delightfully fresh. The broth itself is made with dashi, fresh seafood and vegetables and seasoned with the subtle tang of yuzu peel, elevating the overall taste of the ingredients to another level. A highlight on the seasonal menu is a creative alternative to the standard ebi-fry, in which prawns are fried in shredded chestnut skin, where the slight bitterness of crunchy chestnut skin perfectly complementing the sweet, tender, and succulent prawns. Be sure to also try the hirezake, a hot sake steeped with grilled blowfish fin, for a unique, smoky-flavoured drink to go with the fresh sushi and sashimi prepared by Chef Hattori at the sushi bar upstairs. The bright and spacious décor is the perfect setting for business and private events alike.
