A TASTE OF JAPAN

ABOUT US
Sprit Of Omotenashi
Both our restaurant and our cuisine have rich histories...

KIKU emerged from Sushi Gen, a popular Tokyo sushi bar. KIKU's owners migrated to Pittsburgh in 1983, and were one of the first restaurants to serve sushi in Pittsburgh. KIKU, which was designed to resemble a tea house, has been serving authentic, top quality Japanese cuisine since. At KIKU, we approach the preparation of sushi with reverence. We believe it takes at least 10 years to learn all of the techniques of preparing sushi rice, selecting and caring for the ingredients, and learning to form those ingredients into a work of art. KIKU's chefs are Uchino with 37 years of experience, and Taku with 27 years. At KIKU, we also offer a variety of authentic cooked dishes as well. Some of the most popular are teriyaki and tempura. Our kitchen chefs have countless years of experience.

  

The foundation of Japanese food is rice. In Japan, the word for cooked rice - gohan - has come to mean "food" in general. For instance, breakfast is "asa gohan" or morning rice. Another predominant Japanese ingredient is fish of all kinds, prepared in creative ways. There are a variety of authentic beef, pork, and chicken dishes to choose from as well. Salads and soups are popular, and there are numerous vegetarian dishes. The third traditional component of many dishes is soy or rice vinegar-based sauces, which you can sample at KIKU.

オーナーを始めそれぞれのシェフが日本で本格的な寿司職人としての修行をしてきており、しゃり(すしのごはん)等の作り方にしても、すべてが本格的な江戸前です。

初めてアメリカでお寿司を召し上がる日本人の方で、驚かれる事かもしれませんが、アメリカンナイズされたお寿司がメニューの一部にみられます。それは、アメリカ人の方で、はじめてお寿司=生の魚を召し上がる方が、易しく食べやすく、お寿司をもっと身近に楽しんでいただけるための工夫としてされておりますのでご了承下さいませ。

 

お寿司やお刺身をはじめ、寿司バーからの前菜、そして女将をはじめ、経験豊富なシェフが創りだす、キッチンからのこだわりの肴も充実しています。

お酒もできる限り日本からのものを取り揃えております。焼酎などは、ボトルキープしていただけます。もちろんアメリカ人のお客様にも合わせたカクテルやワイン、シャンペンなど、大切なビジネスミーティングや、パーティー等、宴会の対応も充実させております。

英語がちょっと苦手でも大丈夫。日本語での電話応対も可能です。お気楽にお電話くださいませ。ご予算等のご相談も心よりお待ち致しております。

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.

 

As we all know that it is a challenging time now more than ever to continuing our tradition of serving an authentic Japanese cuisine in the heart of Pittsburgh.   For us in particular, and the rest of restaurant industry in general.

 

Moving forward, we are taking extra precautions as recommended by WHO, CDC, OSHA as well as Allegheny County Health Department.

 

We suggest kindly to our customers who are experiencing a flu-like symptoms or allergies to please recuperate at home. Likewise, we on our part would send any of our team members home if he or she shows any of the symptoms.

 

Our team members have read and study the Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 published by U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and applying them promptly to the restaurant.

 

Additionally,

 

  • We have installed hand sanitizer dispensers by the front entrance and restrooms, along with sanitizer disinfectant spray bottles by the server, bar, sushi bar, and kitchen areas.

  • 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 

minimum.

 

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.
