Tips from the Net @ Kukai Ramen & Izakaya

Had the gyoza which is fantastic! Ordered the garlic Raman and really enjoyed it but will likely try something else next time as it didn't blow me away. Great atmosphere and the service was great. Does get pretty busy so get here early or expect to wait a bit for a table. Lots of beverage options. GooglePlace - February 2018

Service is terrible because they served me dirty plates, and no delicious. Soup is too light and no tasty. Northgate store is way better! GooglePlace - January 2018

I like Kizuki since the first day when I came to Seattle. The food at this place tastes really good and this review is not to complain about the food at all, but to complain the service that I experienced today. We had a party of 11 people arrived at Kizuki around 12PM and put our name on the list. There were literally no one on the list ahead of us. I can see there are exactly 11 seats around the bar area but the gentleman (Ken, who appears to be the manager during that time) who arranged the seating just skip us and placed other people after us to the seats. After about 20 people got there seats, we tried to ask the gentleman why he was skipping us. He said, "There are no available seats for 11 people and we can estimate to get the seats around 1PM with party of 11." I told him that there were seats available when we arrived on the bar and he asked me "are you guys all over 21?". I said "Yes". Then he said "Oh, you did not tell me about that". I was upset and he could just ask me about that when there were still seats available but he did not. When we tried to argue further and he asked us impatiently "Do you really want to be seated." I said "Definitely, we can accept split into small groups and we don't need to sit together." He told us that four of us can get the seats but others will need to wait for another half hour. Until that moment, we've been waiting for about half an hour. I really hope he could give us some explanation about our really unsatisfied experience. His unprofessional service and the attitude to handle this situation really disappointed me. GooglePlace - December 2017
