  • Sushi Kuu

Japanese done right—in the middle of LKF, to boot.

This classy Japanese joint doesn’t disappoint—especially for one located so close to Lan Kwai Fong, where essentially, good food goes to die. The place was buzzing when we visited on a Saturday night, with a line forming even though it was already late.

You can choose to sit by the kitchen and watch the chefs, or on one of the more intimate tables dotted around the restaurant. There is a huge variety to choose from—everything from the standard hand rolls and sashimi to grilled and fried dishes.

We decided to start things off with a crab roe salad and an assorted sushi platter. Crab roe is hard to mess up, so we’ll leave it at that. The sushi platter came with all the usual suspects: egg, roe, tuna and salmon. They were done well—the fish was fresh and the slices generously cut. The prawn tempura was crunchy but light; we liked that it wasn’t oily in the slightest, which is something that happens all too often. We also had mixed vegetable udon in soup, which again, is another dish that’s hard to get wrong—but the soup was aromatic and the noodles were delightfully soft and not overly chewy.

The winner of the night goes to the deep-fried Japanese chicken. The golden skin was crisp while the meat was bursting with flavor. Sinful, but a must-try. Trust us on that one.
