Had given up on finding a decent restaurant in moalboal until we found Kugita. We were very lucky it was the w.end as I think it only opens on the w.end. 1st impression was good, thought they were short staffed as we waited quiet a...while for drinks but turns out the only 2 waitresses in the place were the bartenders too and we'd ordered frozen cocktails which took a while. Once we changed onto a bt of red all was good. The food was great and would highly recommend the sushi. Went back the following night too. The girls did great but were run ragged so another person to serve or a bartender would have improved the serviceMore

The restaurant by himself looks good. Great atmosphere and excellent service. However, quality of the food doesn’t match the price. Sushi weren’t great.

Food was delicious! Seasoned perfectly. Fish was fresh. Pork chops were cooked perfectly pink. The sauce on the steamed Pompano we had nice umami flavors.

The sushi here was very good. Service was fast and attentive as with most places in Moalboal, but the quality of the food was the real showstopper. Presentation, size of the sushimi and rolls, quality of the ingredients, everything was spot on. Even the ginger...was super tasty. A+ and well worth the quick walk from Panagsama waterfrontMore

I visited this restaurant recently with two of my friends and we all agreed that it was by far the best meal we have had in months! The food is all fresh and locally sourced. The sushi literally melts in your mouth and the rosé...was a perfect pairing for the flavours. The owner and Chef is so passionate about what he does, and it shows in every aspect of his restaurant and menu. We had such an incredible experience and thoroughly enjoyed getting to talk to many of the staff members- everyone is so friendly! Can’t recommend this place highly enough!More

There are a handful of wonderful restaurants in Moalboal and Kugita is certainly deserving of their number 1 rank! Sushi is excellent, as is the seafood but the star on the menu is the steak! Master Chef knows how to grill and serve a quality...piece of meat, cooked to the customer's instruction and served sliced to prove the meat is prepared perfectly. Parking is available and it is set back from the road to provide a relaxing dining ambience. Staff are always smiling, even with all tables full! Service is excellent. Thanks Kugita!More

We spent a wonderful couple of hours over lunch at this restaurant. We had the sushi and sashimi - all dishes were delicious and beautifully presented - we ate far more than we intended! A memorable meal and first class service .

Excellent sushi, we went back as it was so good. Very fresh, friendly staff. It’s busy so sometimes a short wait but worth it. Best dinner we had in Moalboal and up there with the best sushi I’ve ever had. Tuna was particularly good, we...had to order more! Really recommend this placeMore

We came to this restaurant twice during our stay in Moal Boal. As a big sushi fan I really enjoyed the food and the service was good. On our first visit the place was busy and we were asked to share our table with another...couple, which wasnt ideal. Thankfully this only lasted for 15 minutes before a table became free and the other couple moved. This was the only downside to our visits here. Lovely setting and fast service.More

Best sushi I have ever had! Great variation of taste, texture and ingredients. Some of the rolls they make might fall apart because of lots of good filling, but that doesn’t matter. Would recommend this place to every sushi lover! Didn’t try anything else on...the menu. Maki rolls are from 280-330 php pr roll. Very friendly staff.More
