This was a great night out for my husband's birthday! We went as a group of 8, and had the perfect table setup for all of us. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. The food was fantastic and the ambiance was great!

I was looking for a nice restaurant to spend my 8 yr anniversary with my wife and we came across KUU. We never been there before nor heard of it, but my wife and I are very grateful we ended up choosing KUU for our anniversary dinner. Great menu, friendly staff and very nice environment for our special occasion. Rick the General Manager went as far as congratulating us with a few glasses of champagne and a house favorite entrée. Thank you RICK! Food was great, looking forward to eating at KUU in the near future. Highly recommend you do the same!

I really like Kuu. The place is nice, the bar great, service awesome and food delicious. The girl at the bar is super super nice, wish i could catch her name. Social hour on mondays is great, and size of dishes is fair and enough for you to try different things. I'll come back soon

Fantastic Service. Intimate ambiance. Well decorated and well dressed crowd. Very impressive. Food was fantastic and definitely worth more than the price. Solid drink menu. Definitely book ahead for the best tables and they cater to special occasions. This is a gem amongst Houston's finest.

Server seemed very nervous (possibly new?) and wasn't very helpful with suggestions. He was very attentive at first but then disappeared for long periods of time. Restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night at 8pm. Food was ok....very overrated and very expensive. Wine list was mediocre. Would not go back and would not recommend.

Kuu is an amazing restaurant. We went there for a low key b-day lunch celebration. In one word: Perfect. Great food, impecable service, and great ambience. Thanks to Kuu's manager and staff for doing such a great job!

KUU is simply amazing. The food is delicious and creative. We had the rock shrimp appetizer--addictive. The sushi is outstanding with very high quality fish and rice. As a treat, they fly in special fish daily from the Tsukiji market in Tokyo daily. I've had this treat twice. If you enjoy sushi, this is something to try.
The bloody mary was excellent.
Last but not least, the service was impeccable. Christine gave us wonderful service. She is very helpful navigating the large menu and understanding some of the unusual fish available. Many thanks to Christine.
Overall, an outstanding and exceptional experience. We highly recommend it.

Outstanding. Went on a Sunday which was perfect as the crazed was small and it was easy to get in. The Sunday pairing special is also a great deal! This place is surely in the running for best sushi place in town...

The amberjack with mandarin sections and grapes was absolutely fabulous. The mushroom dish and beet salad are definitely worth ordering again. They also have selections directly from the Tokyo fish market. Skip the foie - not as good as having it the French way. Worth going!

I brought a special date for a nice dinner on a Sunday evening. I requested a special quiet romantic table and KUU delivered. Service and food were excellent, wine was perfect, great ambiance and made for a perfect date! Thank you KUU, we will be back!

The restaurent experience was incredible. Our server, Zach was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and knew how to take care of us! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The grilled edamame was the best I've ever had in my life, and the sushi was so fresh and bold flavors. The pork belly: also the best I've ever had. Nothing could've made it better.

Stephanie was our server. At the end of the meal she told us she just got out of training and we were the first table she waited on. She was amazing. N vet would have known it was her first night on the job. Food was great, service was prompt. Parking was easy. Will be going back!

Go with several people so that you can share many different dishes. The variety is awesome and well worth experimenting with dishes you might not try on your own. The wait staff can be very helpful in explaining each dish. I'm going for lunch next time to see how it is compared to dinner.

We've eaten at Kuu numerous times. Each time seems to be better than the previous meal. Everything on the menu is extremely fresh and imaginative. If you want Uchi without the wait, this is your spot. There are always off the menu specials depending on what is freshest that day. Do yourself a favor and try it out. It's a great place for drinks at the bar before or after dinner in the dining room. The interior is beautiful.

The food is quite good, and the special fish selections are unique and flavorful. Service is attentive and quite good. The place itself is attractive if a bit Spartan. The menu is creative and not the run of the mill sushi bar. It may not be Oouchi, but it is pretty close.

KUU was better than I imagined. We had a group of six and shared multiple small plates. Lots of exciting tastes and fun. Food came out individually, so that as we finished one plate, the next was arriving. This kept everything lively. We sat in the bar area where there are special prices during happy hour, so we kept the plates coming. We ordered a number of dishes off the happy hour menu, but also dug into the regular (much larger) menu and everything was beautifully presented, wonderfully and creatively conceived and executed and super-tasty! Highly recommend KUU for quick, casual eats AND for special occasions!!

Went solely for the salmon we tasted at the Chronicle's culinary event... sadly the exact dish isn't on the menu. Very pricey for the size of the dishes - would be worth it if they were exceptional. I felt like KUU is an Uchi wannabe, but no comparison. The salmon sashimi was the best thing - melted in my mouth! Cocktails were good but not worth $12-15. Dishes came out back to back - ate everything so fast that we were still hungry! Decided we needed a "real" dinner somewhere else... except the waiter was nowhere to be found to get the check. After 10 minutes we flagged down a hostess and manager - neither could find him! Manager brought the check and gave no apology?! Finally paid and went elsewhere. I would actually return just for the salmon... but probably won't happen.

Service was slow at the start. 15 minutes and they had not taken our drink order. The waitress came by and told us that the host didn't tell her she was our server. I asked if she could tell her manager. She did, and a few minutes later the manager came with a complementary plate of edamame. After that little hiccup food was awesome as usual. And half way through our course they bring another complimentary plate. Awesome! Can't complain. Kuu is not inexpensive, but the quality is undeniable. I always get disappointed whenever I go to any other Japanese restaurant. Don't hesitate to dine at Kuu!
