Kisuatni is a fortified city in Que, probably in the eastern part of the Cilician plain. The city is mentioned with Abarnani and Lusanda in royal inscriptions of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858-824 BC).

The location of Kisuatni is uncertain, although it is likely to have been in the eastern part of the Cilician plain. Karahüyük, ca. 15 km south of Toprakkale, has been (tentatively) suggested as a possible location of Kisuatni (see, e.g., Helsinki Atlas Map 2). That proposed location is not universally accepted.
