A friend and I explored the area for sushi during Otakon 2015 and this was about a 15 minute walk from the convention center. We went on Friday for lunch and it was very quiet. We sat in a booth and waited for the owner(?) who asked for our orders. The atmosphere was very fun but perhaps a bit outdated... More

We came here on a Tuesday evening and surprisingly the place was empty. There were a few takeout orders but we were the only people dinning in. There was one man who took the orders and did the cooking so you can imagine the service wasn't great. With that said, the sushi rolls were quite good. The establishment was old... More

For a small restaurant that looks like a hole in the wall, the sushi was really exceptional. My friend visiting from LA said, this may be the best sushi I have ever had! The sashimi combination was outstanding.

Of course I love their specialty rolls, but the Sashimi Salad is the best. The Sushi Chef is experienced and proficient. Atmosphere is casual, but would work fine for business lunches.

We came here in the afternoon for lunch. It was absolutely empty, save for one man who served as waiter, cook, and cashier. For just one guy, he worked pretty efficiently, but the results of understaffing are evident. The California rolls I had fell apart pretty easily and lacked cucumbers. The chirachi my mom ordered clearly had been sitting around... More

Favorite sushi spot in a neighborhood packed with lots of options. We get take out more often than dine in, but always enjoy the personal experience sitting at the bar. Dynamite roll is a must

Kiku is my fave in Baltimore; haven't yet had a bad or mediocre piece of fish there and am a big fan of the service. Lots of special rolls like the dynamite roll, great sashimi. We ate there all the time when we friends living down in Federal Hill, and still make the trip from time to time. Well worth... More
