This is one of the best sushi places in Albuquerque and it is owned and operated by Japanese people - a big plus! The fish is fresh, the presentation is very pretty and the servers are very nice and helpful. Love the eel rolls and shrimp tempura rolls here. You can't go wrong with Japanese Kitchen

We decided to eat here because we wanted sushi & it was in walking distance of our hotel. We should have done some research. We ordered 6 different rolls. Only one was above average. Kids all ordered fried rice & even it was below average. We would not eat here again.

I have been here a number of times, mainly because it it right next to my work. I have finally decided that even that close convenience doesn't justify going here. While the sushi chefs have always nice, the grumpy (and rude) female wait staff is just too much and the sushi itself is just below average.

So far, this is the best sushi place I've found in the area. It's pricey for dinner (as would be expected being so far inland) especially when ordering the Special Rolls. However, lunch is reasonable and the lunch Weekly Specials are really where you can get a great deal. I also enjoy the Specials because I can try different things that I may not normally order. Though not listed on the sushi check-list menu, you can ask for the more simple rolls (eg spicy tuna) to be made as handrolls.

Non-sushi items such as teriyaki and tempura dishes have also been very tasty.

Good selection of saki and Japanese and domestic beer but the wine selection was rather generic.

Hours are bit on the odd side: it closes after lunch at 2:30 (on the dot! If the door is open but it's 2:35 you will be told they are Closed) then reopens at 5:30 for dinner. Take out is available for lunch (not sure about dinner) and they are Closed on Sundays.

I have not yet visited the teppan grill restaurant. (The teppan grill is separte from the sushi bar, the two are catercorner from each other.)
