Kuki Beijing


Kuki is a cozy spot with a fresh selection of sushi on the menu and the conveyor belt in front of you. Run by former staff of the China World Hotel, it serves quality dishes at modest prices with friendly and attentive service. We recommend ordering a la carte and picking plates off the conveyor (plates priced at ¥6-28). The refreshing shredded seaweed salad (¥8) was the perfect mix of tart and sweet, while the potato salad (¥12) light and easy on the palate. Our salmon sashimi (¥48) and tuna sashimi (¥68) was a steal, however, it was the salted grilled mackerel (¥38) that left an impression. It all begins with a very fresh fish. Crisp, tender and cooked just right. We also ventured out in the Japanese restaurant and ordered baked escargots (¥48) that turned out excellent. The snails came stuffed with fluffy mashed potato and the chef successfully managed the butter garlic combination without it dripping in grease.

I’ve been visiting this place regularly since and I forgot to take photos of all the delicious dishes. I did however get a photo of the cheese tempura, which taste as awkward as it sounds, so piece of advice—don’t order this!
