This place is definitely one of Barcelona's gems. The sushi was so fresh and the service is beyond good. Our waiter Leo was one of the best servers I have ever experienced, he was so kind and attentive. I will definitely come back here if I get the chance ! 10/10

I live very close to this restaurant so I use to go at least once per month, the service is excellent, and quality / price probably is the best in BCN for a japanese restaurant . Amazing tuna tartar, tatakis and the scallops with foi are from outer space :) .As always I'll be back!

Was at Kuo for dinner with my wife. I have worked in Japan and although I can't say that the quality matches that of a good Tokyo restaurant, I think it's fair to say that Kuo is a very good and affordable (sushi is always expensive so it is not cheap) option in Barcelona.

Although the menu has some some reasonable maki options I would personally recommend nigiris or sashimis as this place stands out relative to other places in town for the quality of the fish. If you want something with a ton of "unconventional" ingredients and creative sauces you should probably go somewhere else (although they have some of that).

Other than that the place is relatively quiet, with a nice neighborhood restaurant feel.

Overall I would easily recommend Kuo if you are looking for a very good sushi at reasonable prices (I.e. 80-100 euros for dinner for two with a glass of cava). Of course if you want the best in town I would probably go to Koy Shunka (for creative) or just Shunka (for traditional).
