We've been going to the one in Corona location.But this location is a different owner.Anyways, we thought it was the same owner. I guess they sold this location.So, my husband and I went here for lunch.We both loved it here.Better than the other location in Corona.10/10We loved it here, we will come back again.

Fix your website! Everything is take out right now so how do you not have a website with a menu option that works?!?! I'm really not one of those people who just give out 1 star like some reviewers. Cough..Justin Guillaume..Cough..(seriously look at his review history. Passing those 1 stars out like candy) but this seems like it's kind of important with the pandemic going on.

Ok place for japanese food. Visited on Sat I believe. I'll return with my coworkers. Prices were good for how much you get. Like a restaurant in Washington I liked.

After waiting for ten minutes they refused to seat 4 of us at a table for five. No one else there waiting. I had a handicapped elderly, and after I got the elderly out of car they told me to wait another 20 minutes for a small table!!!! Wow who does THAT ???? The elder needed food and they refused. I will never ever ever ever go back there. I even offered to cover any minimum for the table.

Looks really nice. I do like the design inside room. This restaurant should have better place because people hardly notice Japanese restaurant here.

Amazing food. Have been going for a couple years every weekend. Would recommend. However they started making their own eel sauce and I prefer the old stuff. Wish they'd go back to their old flavor!

I wish Google would stop removing one star reviews.Original review:My wife and I came here once or twice a week for about a year until we met the other owner. His management skills are awful and he treated customers poorly. I approached him on it and he lost his mind. I refused to pay for the meal and the other 6 tables left and didn't finish their meals! I have to admit the feeling of solidarity was good right then. Anyways, I have refused to go back simply because of the health risk of that single ow er. He is that bad.

Food was delicious, the Cajun tuna is really great. Also loved the LA Dodgers Roll and the Ultimate Salmon Roll. Bathroom and restaurant were very clean. Wait for seating and food was a little long.

3 stars because tonight wasn't our first night at Kiku, if it had been, we'd be looking at 1-2 stars. Normally we get service that's just fine here. But something was different tonight. Maybe someone called off or there were one too many new servers or it was just busier than they had prepared for. Either way tonight wasn't good. From the start it felt chaotic. We couldn't even get our second round of all-you-can-eat because the servers were inattentive, bouncing around like they were in a pinball machine. The sushi cuts (salmon specifically) were sub-par for shape and cleanliness, the rolls were brittle, and even the ginger was too thick and dried out. Had to ask for things twice and then wouldn't even get it from the server we asked. It was just strange. Better luck next time, I guess.

New favorite place!! The sushi is so fresh and flavorful, the staff is nice and helpful and the place is really clean. The all-you-can-eat is really well priced, and the chef makes new rolls (which are part of the all you can eat) and is willing to make new rolls. Such a fan of this place!

Bring an appetite! Kiku Sushi offers an All-You-Can-Eat Lunch and Dinner special. The selection is huge and you also get appetizers as part of your meal! The meal includes a drink or a beer. We went, a family of 4, on a Saturday night and we had a 15 minute wait for a table. You are given a menu and an order menu and we received our food almost immediately. By the time we got around to tasting everything we had ordered, we couldn't eat anymore. We cancelled the rest of our order and called it a day. Great night out place, lively and busy.

Most of the rolls are made ahead of time and refrigerated so the rice is cold and hard. NOT GOOD! Very long line, Poor quality of food. If you don't know any better or thing that corn flakes are a delicious dinner, then yes, you MIGHT be satisfied with this place.

I frequent this marvelous place once a month because I love the special atmosphere that is unique to this place. The personel is exceptionally loving and qualified. The service is awfully quick. Needless to say, the food they cook is highly distinguished. I visited more than once and I was always delighted. The rate is fair. I highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

Well, we ordered 6 different rolls... and out of the 6, we got 4 that were identical to the picture I've shared here. When we asked about the food, the waitress said they're all different... so we ate them to avoid an argument. Then the waiter kept bringing other sushi plates that belonged to other people. So we honestly were about to ask him to just leave them on our table... because those at least were different. But they took the food away and gave it to the right peoole. Lucky them that they got their orders right... unless they were receiving mistakes like us.I was recommended to try this place... and I did. But never again will I come back. I know a better spot for a dollar less than what they charge here. And yes it is far better with good service too.People do come here, and maybe because they haven't tried other spots. But this spot will be the last place I would try again. Believe me, there's way better. Try Upland and Ontario, you'll find some better there... ive tried them already.

Price recently.went up but still a good value for all you can eat. They have expanded and changed the menu but some items are not available for the all you can eat deal. Some rolls are a bit plain but the rest stand out. Still have escolar on the menu so be careful what you order. Still a great place for all you can eat or a quick bite before a movie.

Review №25

The food here is ok but it is a little expensive compare to the quality of the food(as all the reviews notices, the services here is not that satisfactory). Since I have been to a lot more fancy sushi restaurants. I feel like this place is more like a sushi fast food restaurant. If you want to eat sushi around chino, it is still a good place to go.

Review №36

My wife and I have been coming here for quite some time because the quality of fish was good, price was reasonable, and the atmosphere was chill. Ever since new management started, the quality has gone down significantly. Specifically, the sushi has way too much rice. I shouldn't have to break off half the rice in a piece of sushi (something I haven't had to do in over a decade) because they want to save money. This last time, there were pieces of sushi (specifically squid and yellowtail) so drenched in sauce I couldn't taste the fish. I also spat out a piece of octopus because it was too chewy to swallow, something I can't remember happening to me before in a sushi restaurant. Too bad as we really liked the restaurant.

Review №41

Place was easy to find. Lots of seating available. Staff was friendly. I liked their all-you-can eat comes with a choice of draft beer or saké. The bad part is, their sushi slices are so thin and small compared to the other all-you-can-eat sushi places around the area. My miso soup fell off the sushi bar counter because it was slanted. Not good.

Review №43

In my experience it is very hard to find a sushi place that is both "all you can eat" and that actually serves good sushi. Usually you only get one or the other. This place is the beautiful exception and has become me and my wife's go-to sushi destination. Easy to find, right next to the theater. Very nice staff who remember us when we come in. Wide variety of sushi and a full menu of your other standard Japanese dishes. All you can eat includes almost the entire sushi menu and they don't stick you with the day old fish if you order all you can eat, it's still the really good stuff. All you can eat also includes a draft beer. Lots of TVs around the restaurant playing sports. Highly recommend!

There's All you can eat sushi includes a beverage (saki/beer) & All you can eat appetizers includes soda - if your not into sushi. Best bet get all you can eat & the saki then buy a $3 beer...its a tall. Can't beat the price.

Not really family friendly anymore. New owner wants it to be more like a party atmosphere. Music videos loud, even half naked ladies with bad words they get off you tube. Wanted to relax and talk to my family over dinner wasnt really able to . :( Sushi wasn't bad but not really worth the headache. Sad cause it used to be my favifavo place.

JEWEL IN CHINOI have eaten at best japanese restaurants all over the world, from Nobu to Matsuhisa to Zuma, Kiku is world class- I was thoroughly impressed:fish was fresh n finest from tuna to salmon to yellow tail.

Review №58

I tried the All You Can Eat option which includes either beer, sake, or a fountain drink and appetizers. I think its like $21 for lunch and $25 for dinner. The sushi came out relatively fast until more people started showing up, then the orders got a bit disorganized. You order off a paper that only has slots to order once so you were marking either on the side of where you're supposed to order or on the other side which more than likely made it difficult for the chefs. They forgot to give me certain sushi and said that they did. Either way its a set price so you can just order it again but it was still annoying. The sushi to rice ratio was great. Meaning more fish than rice but the rice was either of poor quality or not cooked right because it fell apart or fell off the sushi. Other than that it was a good experience. They were busy so it seemed like they were rushing people out. But over all ok.

Review №59

I hate posting poor reviews when I had the opportunity to post good ones prior and did not.Have had Kiku several times before and it has always been good. Tonight was not.The texture of the sushi did not look fresh. The rolls we ordered, sloppy and falling apart before placing it on the table.Wife ordered cajun tuna twice with the all you can eat and received two completely separate setups with two completely different fish.I guess I will combine my 4 star and 5 star visits with tonight's 1 star to make it a fair review.

Review №62

Came here for the AYCE option. I like that it comes with option of sake or one beer because I don't know a lot of places that do that. Lots of selection so if you're already familiar you're sure to find the rolls you like. However, for those not familiar you might have a hard time deciding what to get because there are no pictures. Service was pretty quick. Would come here again.

By far the best sushi place. Hands down. All you can eat and it doesn't taste like cafeteria sushi. It's amazing. The only thing I get that is restricted on the all you can eat menu is Sea Urchin. You get two pieces for free. That's it. If they took away that restriction, I'd be in here every week.Oh...you get a free tall beer from tap or a free bottomless soda as part of the all you can eat.Definitely come here. Actually, don't....because I don't want to wait in line for this place because I told you to come here. :)KIKUUUUU! :)

This had always been our go to Sushi place. When we went last week I was soooo disappointed. Started with the Iced Tea. Sent it back twice because the taste was so off-It smelled like bleach. Then the food arrived. It was terrible. Finally called the waitress over and asked her if the restaurant was sold because our meal was so sub standard. She confirmed it was. Hub sent back his Cajun Tuna - No sauce or spices on it, Spicy Tuna was so dry, Lobster Roll had one tiny piece of lobster and no taste. Sigh...now on to another place to eat.

Review №75

My wife and I have been going here for a few years now and this is the best all you can eat in town. We've ventured out to most of the local sushi spots in the area and this place is the most consistent quality food and best customer service. The staple servers here Glen and Epple are awesome and on top of every want and need! Great food, great staff and awesome value. Also a nice kicker, with every all you can eat you the choice of a large bottle of hot sake, a draft 16 once beer, or soft drink included. And can't forget about $3 22oz bottles of beer! Cheers!

The sushi is to die for. It's the best I've ever had, and I only come here twice a year because it's so special. I only took a star off because the staff is odd. Sometimes they're great, quick and very nice, but other times they're rude, slow, and show that they don't want to be there.

Food is good, the tempura was little more greasy than usual. The service started good with silly gave waitress, then they changed shifts and we had the last waitress that was rude, upset face and did not care, she obviously hated her job. We had to look for someone to bring us extra napkins...... And to top the bad service while eating, she said "if you leave rice in your plate we will charge you extra for it" as if we care but certainly made us leave quick and will never come back to this Chino Hills location. She got ZERO tips.

The first time I came here was around nine years ago. I was with my daughter and we were there for a birthday party. My husband and I just recently had dinner here and the place was packed, good sign. We sat at the sushi bar and ordered the Caterpillar, Red Dragon, and Lobster roll. Delicious in so many ways. We had very good service from the host to the server. This is a definite place to experience.Just took a star off. I called and asked if I could place a "to go order" as fast as the female, who answered the phone, replied she hung up on me before I could ask another question. I called again with my second question. Once again she answered and hung up on me. So Sorry We Are Super Busy. Well I am happy they are busy but money cannot buy your manners. This was super rude and for that I will take another star away. I am very disappointed.
