Kulu Kulu is a good example of a typical sushi bar, a great place to go for sushi whether you’re a novice or an experienced fan. It’s packed and noisy and you’ll be crammed into a space at the counter, but this bustle is part of the attraction of an authentic sushi place. You can either grab dishes as they go past or call an order direct to the chef; there’s nothing on the menu except sushi. Fresh and clean, from the best fish and prepared before your eyes, this is sushi pure and simple. Kulu Kulu is a great place for an exciting meal that will leave you feeling happy and recharged.
