NileGuide Expert tip:
Kitcho is a little hard to find the first time, so carry the phone number with you to give to your taxi driver.
Kitcho, while small, pairs traditional sushi bar dishes with modern techniques and impeccable plating and presentation. A majority of the restaurant's seating is at the long sushi bar, though there are a few tables in the back room. If possible, sit at the bar to watch the masters at work. You can tell instantly that the chefs at Kitcho are passionate about sushi. The service is top notch, and it's enjoyable to watch them wield their knives while tossing around casual banter.
If you're ordering a la carte, try the engawa
, or flounder side, the uni
, and the flounder sashimi. If you're not sure what to get, leave it to the masters and order omakase
style. You'll get several courses, depending on the price option you choose, prepared meticulously from the chef's favorite ingredients.
