It's kind of hard to find it since it's inside a big building. The food is ok and the sake is ok. The service was great, I might come back again.

The sushi at Kiku is fresh and delicious. The sushi chef and the whole atmosphere is very high-class. Beware, it's also much more expensive than other options in Pittsburgh that are almost as good, like Sushi Too. Enjoy!

Having lived in Okinawa, Japan for 3 years, I've become quite a critic when it comes to quality Japanese food. As there are many places that claim to be Japanese or authentic, that sadly is not always the case. I had a strong craving for sushi and found Kiku through Trip advisor. Based off reviews and photos, I decided to... More

This hidden gem of a restaurant brings an authentic Japanese dining experience to Pittsburgh. The atmosphere has been quiet and reserved each time I've been here (3X), and the food is always fresh and presented in a traditional manner. Great location for a romantic dinner for 2 or a larger group wanting just to enjoy good food and friendly service... More

This is a very hidden gem. It's nestled in the corner of the station. It's surrounded by resteraunts like the Hard Rock and Crab Shack. It doesent need gimmicks and bright lights. Fresh fish is the name of the game. Wife and I were promptly seated and presented warm towels, and water. I ordered the sashimi platter and my wife... More

After a bad dinner on a roof top some colleagues and I headed over to Kiku. In a mall but great sushi and sashimi. Great selection of drinks as well. Was nervous about sushi in Pittsburgh but really met expectations.

My husband, daughter and I ate at Kiku at Station Square last week. We ordered udon with tempora, swordsfish teriyaki, and a shrimp and veggie tempora plate. We also ordered the fried ice cream and a chocolate cake. Everything was delicious. It is a quiet, small restaurant with great service and a sushi bar. The plum wine was perfect with... More

We had a great experience sitting at the sushi bar where the sushi chef prepared our deliciously fresh sushi explaining as he went along the locations from where they procure their fresh fish. Unfortunately on this busy evening we arrived as he served the last of his eel but he replaced our selection with one of his favorites which is... More
