KUU Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Came here for my wife's birthday. Food was outstanding. May be the best Japanese resturant we have been to which includes N.Y and L.A. Service was outstanding. The plates our waitress Stefani's recommendations were excellent choices. We are already looking forward to returning.
Kuu is the finest Japanese cuisine restaurant that we have experienced in the Houston area. There are other very good restaurants serving this type of cuisine but Kuu is far and away the best of the lot. The service is excellent and the food is truly inventive and extraordinarily delicious. It's rather pricey but it's worth it. Eating at Kuu is nothing short of a culinary adventure.
This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Houston. If you like sushi and you want authentic, creative and delicious sushi this is where you need to go! Everything tastes so good, our food was out so fast and so fresh, the servers really know what they're talking about and are so friendly every time. Service is unmatched
We decided to celebrate our joint wedding anniversary with our best friends. Not really knowing how much they like raw or cold, we knew that we may be limited on what dishes to order. That was not a problem because they enjoyed the same foods we chose. And since the food is friendly for sharing (small plates) we could order many one bite, per person, selections. We did let the restaurant know ahead of time what special occasion we were celebrating. They out did themselves with nice added touches to make it truly a wonderful evening (the staff and management welcomed us and congratulated us, a handwritten card on the table for both couples, a lovely glass of Prosecco and a tuna tartar appetizer). Every server, greeter and various staff members were genuinely pleased that we chose to dine with KUU.
First time customers for all five in our group, and everyone was very happy with KUU! The cocktails, our waitress, our table, our food were all great. I tried the golden beet with rose cream salad, butternut squash soup, and portabello roll. All were delicious. We can't wait to come back again to try more of the menu!
I went here last night for date night and we sat outside. They have a great patio. It was decorated nice and very romantic. The food was so delicious. We tried the garlic edamame and three different rolls. Good wine and mixed drinks too! Our waiter was very attentive and overall the experience was great. We will come back to Kuu for sure.
The food was good , the service was really bad. The waiter we had was not trained and could have cared less, it was a special event , and I let them know when I made the reservation nothing was done to make it special. The food was pushed out so fast that at one time we had 3 different dishes on the table and they were trying to bring another and this was after we ask them to slow it down and let us dine. The portions were for 2 people instead of 4, one dish that was served was scolops and sautéed mushrooms , it came with one scolp for 4 people and then the alcohol pairings really bad, the waiter could not tell us about the different wines and soky , and where some of the fish and dishes originated because he did not know; at one point he said I just bring what the chef makes. This was their food and alcohol pairings at 180 a person was not cheap and I expected more. I was embarrassed in front of the guest I took there because I had bragged to them about this place . I will not recommend this place again and probably want be back. I tried contacting the restaurant before I wrote this review , but never got a response, so l guess they don't care.
I've been wanting to try this place and I'm so glad I finally had a chance to. It was amazing, everything was fresh and delicious and our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. And if you get nothing else get the bacon wrapped scallops... my God. 10 of 10
