Pittsburgh's Authentic Japanese Restaurant

The restaurant that introduced sushi to Pittsburgh in 1983 is named KIKU, the Japanese word for chrysanthemum. This beautiful flower that exists in a variety of colors & shape came to Japan through Chinese silk traders. The chrysanthemum has become such a part of Japanese culture that it has its own month - November - when its beauty is celebrated in  festivals throughout the country. We welcome you to join our festivities

Dear Kiku’s family,


First and foremost, we would like to send our gratitudes to all for your  patronage to our little corner of the world for the last 37 years.

  • We are practicing 6 ft. rule whereas there are at least 6 feet seating gap between parties.

  • Like our chopsticks, our oshibories are now disposable.

  • We clean tables and chairs with soap and then sanitize them every time after guests have left.

  • We sanitize our menus after each seating.

  • We clean and sanitize our restrooms every half hour from door handles, faucets, toilet control panels, urinals, and every touchable areas.


With these measures, we are cautiously confident, the level of exposure to any bacterial or viral droplets on and around the restaurant’s surfaces has been and will be kept at a 



We also encourage to our customers should they still unsure to dine in as to try our curb side pickup, or order through Doordash to have it conveniently delivered.


At the end, the safety of our guests and our crews is absolutely paramount to us.  Together, we are going to go through this and come out on the other side better and stronger.  Looking back since 1983 and through these years, we would like once again to say thank you for your loyalty and looking forward to serving you in years to come.
