Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Amsterdam. Everything is top notch from the service to the food. They have a taster menu for two that has all kinds of delicious things. Definitely reccommend.

Great hidden little gem. We got the Sticks and Sushi for 2 and it was a must get! A little of everything (veggies, sushi, chicken, etc) and it all was delicious.

Had an awesome sushi dinner in Amsterdam with Mom and Dad. The place had a cool vibe, felt like we were in Japan. Sushi was top-notch, super fresh and tasty. Tried some new stuff alongside classics like salmon and tuna, all delicious. Staff was friendly...and on point. Overall, it was a great night out with the folks.More

Best Japanese food l've had in a long time. The fish was incredibly fresh and the hamachi superb. Their specials were also delicious (loved the corvina!) The staff and owner are super friendly. Highly recommend it!

We have been coming to Ku for now a couple years now and everytime is a success! Service is stellar, cocktails are delicious (and they have improved a lot since the first time we came in 2022) and the food is amazing. The rib eye...steak with miso reduction never fails, incredibly tender and tasty, and the Bento Seafood is just the perfect combo for those who don’t know what to pick from the menu. Lovely spot, lovely staff, excellent food. We will surely keep coming back!More

Absolutely stunning sushi, with prices to match. But, frankly, it was worth it. Small, limited menu, but Absolutely beautiful to look at and even better to ear.
