Jumbo Scallop

We absolutely loved the buttery texture and sweetness of the scallops dotted with the wonderful flavor of real wasabi.

Sweet Shrimp

Amazing food. Amazing service and Peter at the sushi bar was incredible. We had him make some special sushi for us and he did not disappoint. By far best sushi in Long Beach if not SoCal. We came by chance to grab sushi and discovered this gem. Fresh fish made exactly how it should be. We can't wait to come back

The tuna tasting is my favorite dish, not just at this restaurant but of all the things I could think of eating. It's a combination of 3 types of tuna sushi with its own sauce each... This is Definitely the best sushi in Long Beach. Authentic Japanese , fresh fish and reasonably priced for the excellent quality.

Smoked Octopus Carpaccio

So I have basically had everything on their menu and it's all amazing but the Smoked Octopus Carpaccio is a true stand out winner. Whether you like octopus or not this dish is truly spectacular. A staple for every time my wife and I dine there, I have been truly missing it during these trying times. I will be loyal to Kihon for life and this will always be the first thing. I order!

Black Cod Saikyo Yaki

The Black Cod Saikyo Yaki is heavenly. The buttery fish flakes off easily and melts in your mouth. The salty sweet caramalized marinade is divine. Served with a pickled ginger flower to tease your palate, it is a perfect dish.

Popcorn Shrimp Tempura

Peter is the absolute best. He created a special hand roll using the popcorn shrimp tempura, crab meat avo on soy paper~ prince roll. The ankimo is absolutely amazing same with the toro tasting. Just melts in your mouth. Highest quality fish!

Nasu Miso

I just dined at Kihon last night because I just had to show my friend the quality of this sushi. Its not an understatement when I say this is the best sushi I've ever tasted. And on top of that their appetizers are equally phenomenal in their own trade. For example, this Nasu Miso will surprise you. I'm not a fan of eggplant, never have been, but this miso glazed eggplant changed my entire perspective on eggplant. The glaze is perfect, the texture is perfect, the taste is richer than you'd expect. I would highly recommend this place and if I were rich, I would personally guarantee money back if you didn't enjoy the food.

Tuna (Bluefin or Big Eye)

Everything a Kihon is delicious! Been many times and always amazing. Spicy Miso and all Nigiri is among my favorite! Ask for any custom cut roll!

Nasu Miso

this is one my favorite dish at kihon that i usually order because of it's smooth, velvety texture & subtle, but overwhelming flavor. all of that combined makes it so unique to other dishes. I try to make it at home but cannot duplicate it the same way that kihon makes it. thank you for letting me share my favorite kihon dish.

Toro (Fatty Tuna)

The toro flight was amazing!!! Melt in your mouth fatty goodness. I really appreciate that they don't season their rice with too much vinegar so that you can really taste the quality of the fish.

Smoked Octopus Carpaccio

I love Kihon, not just for the delicious Japanese cuisine, but for the excellent experience that they provide on every visit. The owner and his team are all great, courteous and genuine. I have introduced several friends to Kihon and they have all left happy, impressed and with an eagerness to go back from both, Orange and LA counties. If you were to begin with one dish, I would highly recommend starting with their Smoked Octopus Carpaccio. It is a staple, in my opinion, unique to Kihon and a great precursor for the next delicious dish.

The smoked octopus carpaccio is always amazing and the sushi is A+ and the selection of fish is top quality. I've been a customer since Kihon first opened and I loved it day one and still do. Erwin and his staff do everything in their power to make the dining experience memorable whether you come in for a snack, take out or dining in. You may come in as a stranger but you definitely walk out as family.

Toro (Fatty Tuna)

We love the Toro Sampler! It's not always available. But when it is, it is so delicate and sublime, the toro melts in your mouth. Our favorite sushi place hands down!

Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno

Had this dish...Loved it! Ingredients were super fresh, the sauce was awesome and the jalapenos provided just the right amount of heat. I like the simplicity of this dish too. Not drowning in sauce, or a thousand other ingredients. Def try this...
