Way over rated. Our services were so horrible. There so short staffed the sushi chef was serving tables, the waitress missed one of my rolls and forgot to take a Togo order which in the end I was great full for that. To make matters worse I had to look for the unagi on my role. Really? Lesson learned. Never... More

Excellent Yakisoba noodle plates and Bento box lunches. Amazing coconut cake-made from scratch! Beth, the owner, is kind and wants to know about the people who are eating at her place. It is super cute and small town yummy.

The only problem with this place is you will want to eat too much. After you have a large meal you will be tempted with unbelievable desserts. Try the cheesecake.

Go here just about every time we are in Brookings. Beth (owner) has become a friend. Wife always get the "Rock & Roll". I try everything and have not been disappointed. The Kobe burger is excellent (go think for a sushi restaurant). Always have excellent sushi. One of our favorites in Brookings.

Don't let the outside fool you, go on in. The place is spotless. The food was excellent, as was the service. A small place ,glad we got there early as they were filled within 45 minutes. Kind of off the beaten path, but easy to find. Will definitely go there again.

Needed to say thank you for being in Brookings Cafe Kitanishi. What a wonderful place to find tucked in behind in a less than obvious place for a Sushi bar. Wonderful food...wonderful atmosphere and extremely friendly and competent staff. Reservations recommended. Don't drive by.

We have eaten here twice in the past month. Chef Beth does a nice job and we really enjoy the desserts. We like the wine list although in general this place seems overpriced and the service can be quite slow. The food is still consistent and on point. The hours are bizarre. Will be back.

Honestly we had eaten here a year ago while on a fishing trip so we went back again this year because it was pretty good, HOWEVER this time is wasn't so good, As we sat at the sushi bar and looked at the sushi, you would think they would have only fresh looking sushi but not the case the sushi...

The food was very good, but it can be busy and noisy. Japanese food is always a bit more expensive than other cuisines, and their prices reflected this. Though not Japanese, they have a fantastic cheesecake.
