Kiku – sushi in Mayfair

17 Half Moon Street, W1J 7BE

When Daddy Swindian comes to town, good food is had. This visit was no exception, as we visited 2 fabulous Japanese places in the space of 3 days! Read my review of our other meal at Matsuri here.

Prawn tempura

Kiku is slightly tucked away in Mayfair and when we walked in, we were struck by the quiet, unassuming decor. The service was inconspicuous and unobtrusive. As usually happens when I eat with my father, I let him do the honour of ordering and I simply ate what was put in front of me. As always, it worked really well, and everything he chose was absolutely delicious.


Soft shell crab roll, eel nigiri, and the infamous tuna belly

This was the place I discovered what is now my favourite type of nigiri sushi: tuna belly. How can I describe it? It is juicy and flavourful and makes me shun any other form of tuna. It isn’t available in a lot of places, which is probably a good thing, as I would empty my bank account eating it! In fact, I may have ordered one more piece after we’d finished eating, just to satisfy my palate…


Heaven on a plate

Here are some pictures of the other things we ate… it was all phenomenal and I highly recommend Kiku for a nice meal out!
