Our daughter living in Canada recommended Piku to us. Her track record is good and this was no exception. Fresh, tasty, interesting. Great service. There’s only one other thing to say - I can’t wait to go again.

Small restaurant with indoor and outdoor options for dining. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great selection. Excellent options for the children with bento boxes that not only have reasonably healthy options, looked fabulous but kept them engaged while we dined!
