kitaro surf & turf & sushi
Such amazing food and service! Plus the ambiance is perfect!
John and Carrie are excellent restaurant owners, and I loved Kitaro Surf & Turf! We were frequent customers at their previous Lemont, Illinois location, but the drive to Munster isn’t far! We will be back!
Chose Kitaro for me and my boyfriend's first date night in months! We're from outside of Chicago which is still quite locked down. It was so nice to actually eat in a restaurant again! I was apprehensive about what to expect, but this experience was fantastic. We were seated right away. The sushi was AMAZING, oyster shooters were on point, and the sake flights were great--we appreciated the variety. LOVED the lychee sake. Alissa was delightful--attentive service without being overbearing, very friendly, and smiled through the mask! Thanks for making our first post-quarantine outing so awesome and memorable!
Everyone was very friendly and helpful, during these trying times everything was well organized and ran smoothly. They're excellence in service and safety was well appreciated.
Great food, friendly service.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Kitaro. The service was pleasant and responsive. The sushi was done of the best I have had! I am planning to return on my next trip as well as conduct a business dinner this summer.
Food is the best hands down sushi in northwest Indiana. Ambiance is very clean and modern and service is always excellent. Chef and owner John has the best sushi south of Chicago and always is my favorite night out!
This is always a great experience. Some of the maki choices are a little unconventional, but everything is delicious, and the service is fantastic.
This is my second time coming and it was better than the first. The service is wonderful and the food is still delicious. I had the Power Lunch for $16.99 and it was really worth it.
Food and service were excellent. Sitting was a little to be desired, we were sat right by the door which made it cold and also with it being a Saturday night we had people standing right up to our table.
I will go back again... This place is amazing.My sister and brother said they will be back also
Love this place so much we come from Lemont where they first opened!!! Always wonderful food and great service. Carrie is so friendly love her always remembers me.
Hello LisaW! Wow!! Thank you so much for coming from the Lemont area to dine with us here, that in itself, is a huge compliment and we appreciate it!! We're always super happy to hear not only are you a repeat customers, but it's because of everything that Carrie and John have built Kitaro around: wonderful service and food!! We look forward to having you back!!!
Outstanding fresh dishes served by very attentive and caring staff!
Hi JenniferK! Thank you so much for posting about your time with us! We love hearing you enjoyed all things Kitaro!! It goes without saying that we hope to see you back soon!!!
Quick service, great food. Im not big on sushi so I go for the surf and turf. However the wife loves the Godzilla roll. Usually come once a month.
Hi MichaelC! Many thanks for your review, recommendation, and 5 stars!! We loved hearing that you were able to find some non-sushi items so that your wife could come here to have her fill of the Godzilla roll! May we suggest taking a small step towards joining your wife on the sushi train? The California roll is a great starter piece!! We look forward to having you back next month!!!
Friendly knowledgeable staff, excellent food. Only drawback was the high noise levels.
Hello Anonymous! We were over the moon happy to see your review of your stay with us!! If the noise level was due to the music, please feel free to let us know and we would be more than happy to turn it down a notch for you!!
Went for a lunch by myself and the quality of the food was amazing. Service was great. Dessert was great. Overall loved it.
Hi AdryanB! We can't thank you enough for letting us know how your dining experience was with us! We're loving the 5 stars and that you enjoyed everything from the time you came in to dessert!! Please come back and see us again soon!!
The food was very tasty. The service was excellent!
Hi RichB! We can't ask for more than hearing that you enjoyed the eats and service!! Thank you so much for your 5 stars!!!
Need more waiters or waitresses on staff other than that it’s a nice restaurant

We are frequent customers and have come to enjoy this recent addition to the Munster food scene -
Hi Paddy! Love, love, love hearing that you are one our regulars, thank you for that as it's a huge compliment!! Come back and see us soon!!!
We went to Kitaro for Valentine’s Day. Maybe the service was so slow because it was a special day? It took 15 minutes to be greeted at our table. Some of our food was never delivered and the back room was freezing. However the food was quite tasty. I would probably try it again on a boring Monday night.
Hello KatieCS! I'm sorry to hear about your time with us on Valentine's Day. You had mentioned that some of your food never arrived, were we able to remedy the situation? Above all, we appreciate you giving us another whirl and hope to see you soon!
Shannon was an amazing server. She was very accommodating and we had a great time with her. Definitely looking forward to going back and hopefully having her as our server again.
Anonymous, thank you so much for posting your review, awarding us 5 stars, and letting us know how great Shannon was! We will let her know about your review and I'm sure it's safe to say "Thank you!" on her behalf!! We look forward to having you back soon!!
My husband and I had a babysitter for the first time in almost four years. Dinner was expensive which was fine, we were really looking forward to the experience and didn’t care how much the cost would have been. The temperature outside was 3°. When we came in and we were sat it was in the private room, (I made these reservations two weeks prior to make sure this was a nice surprise and experience for my husband) the room wasn’t above 50° and there was just cold air blowing on us the entire time. They said they had turned up the heat but it was taking so long to turn on. Supposedly they had had the heat on earlier in the day and a customer complained it was too warm so they turned it off. We sat for 25 minutes before someone even came to the table or got water and a table that was sat 10/15 minutes after us was greeted before us. We ate our meal with cold hands and cold noses. I was wearing my winter jacket as well as my husbands winter jacket, it was beyond uncomfortable, the appetizer came out room temperature, but the plate was hot from being under the food lamp so I held on to that for a minute to warm my hands up. It was so disappointing. I was so excited, and it was just an overall let down. The food was decent but not worth it. It was a one shot rarity that we got that night with our kids and work schedules. Big let down.
Hello Anonymous, I understand the priceless quality of having some time away that is valued and I'm sorry that you had anything, but a 5 star experience with us. As we do our best to honor guests' requests, it opens up to fulfilling some, but affecting others in the opposite way so I'm sorry that warming up too longer than expected. I do hope that you can have another date night soon!
The restaurant air temperature always tends to be very cold, which we personally don’t like. Also the music was loud initially right over our table, but our server was able to have it turned down. Fabulous service by Shannon again, and an amazing steak cooked perfectly. We will be back!
Hi Carol! I'm sorry that it was a bit chilly during your stay with us, but like the music, please feel free to let your server know and we will do our best to accommodate your requests!! Thank you for awarding us 4 stars and we loved hearing that you will be back to dine with us!!!
I had a very good experience. The service was great and the steaks were cooked to perfection! This is a perfect restaurant for a special occasion.
Hi SherryS! So many thanks for taking the time to post your review and give us a 5 star rating!!
My husband and I went for the first time for Valentine's day and they had a limited menu due to how busy they were. They made vegetarian maki for me despite not being on the limited menu. Very accommodating and great service. We ordered 6 different dishes and all were very good. We will return.
Hello CodyJ! Thank you for spending a special occasion with us and we loved that we were able to accommodate your tastes and can't wait for you to return now that you have your maiden visit with us!!
Celebrated our Grandson's 17th birthday, he requested this restaurant, we were very pleased with everything. We will be back.
Hi Angela! Thank you for honoring your grandson's request to dine with us! We loved hearing that we were his choice for such a special occasion and so happy that everything went well!!! We can't wait to have you back again!!! Huge Happy Birthday wishes to the new 17-year-old!!!!
My husband and I celebrated his 51st birthday by starting off with dinner at Kitaro Surf & Turf. He had never been so I was eager to treat him to a memorable experience. Kitaro did NOT disappoint. Our server was beyond accommodating. The food was amazing and the Japanese whiskey was an excellent touch. Thank you for making a humble man's birthday extraordinary!
Hello VioletM! YOU humbled US with your incredibly complimentary review!! Thank you so much for choosing us to celebrate your husband's birthday, that alone is quite the compliment, we can't tell you how much it means to us to hear that the two of you had such an enjoyable time! Huge Happy Birthday wishes to your husband!!!
Shannon was our server - fabulous!
Greetings, Carol! Thank you for letting us know about Shannon, we will pass on your compliment to her!!!
The food is absolutely delicious! The ambiance is really nice but a little too loud. It kind of feels like a night club on the weekends in the evening. I’m definitely coming back! I had the Chicago Roll and the clear soup since it was freezing outside lol. Two thumbs up!
Food was great and the service was just as good. We always love going to Kitaro.
Hi ChrisC! Thank you so much for your generous comments and right back at you with loving you here!!! The 5 stars is so very much appreciated!! We can't wait for you to come back soon!!
Food was great and the service was excellent! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and loved the smooth jazz in the background; music was soft enough to easily engage in conversation.
Hello BarbaraA! Wow, thank you for the awesome review, we loved hearing that you enjoyed your dining experience with us! When you come back to visit (yes, we're optimistically hopeful!) and the selection of music can't compete with the smooth jazz you heard that day, please let us know and we will be more than happy to change it for you!!! Hope to see you again!!
Very good as usual. We will be back!
Hello Anonymous! We appreciate you taking the time to write about your time with us! Are you here yet?!! LOL...we look forward to having you back soon!!
The food was delicious and the service was excellent! We would definitely go back.
Back room was a little drafty but it was winter time when we were there.
Hi MartinJ! Many thanks of appreciation for your comments, recommendation, and loving the 5 stars!! Please don't hesitate to let the staff know if there is something that we can do to make your stay with us more pleasant, such as an opportunity to address the room temperature!! We loved hearing you will be back to visit us and can't wait to see you again soon!!
Very expensive for the area it’s in! Food and service were great! Shouldn’t pay that much for hibachi chicken or drinks!
