Great Sushi

I love sushi and have eaten at many sushi restaurants in the Birmingham area and Sekisui has the best!! The restaurant is located upstairs in an old strip center and can be hard ti find but it is worth finding. The Mimi roll and the Hawaiian roll are two of my favorites. If you do not like sushi... read more

We loved this place. The sushi was so fresh, the combinations novel. I recommend the tornado roll - a tempura eel concoction. Our server was charming. We were seated after a short wait.

I went in for take-out and had a glass of wine while I waited. The service was fast and I waited only a short time for my order. The server was very polite and helpful The sushi was great! The only reason for the 4 stars is that I paid $9 for a glass of Chardonnay...3/4 of the cost of... More

I meet friends here regularly for lunch...it's such a good experience! The lunch deals ate outstanding and are prepared beautifully. The lunch box is more than u can eat. My friend had teriyaki chicken..enough for two meals but delicious and fresh. I had shrimp tempura and we both loved the salads and soup. I really need to go more often!

This is our favorite sushi spot in Birmingham. The service is always very efficient, and the sushi is outstanding. Make reservations on Open Table or call for a table because Sekisui can get very busy.

One of the best sushi joints in town. Highly recommend the Tornado and Louisiana rolls. Grilled squid is also a favorite. Nice ambience.

The food is good, but tonight the service was bad. It took 15 min to get soup after ordering. 20 min later the food came and it came over a 8 min period, i.e., one order came 8 min after the others, and a carry out that was ordered at the start was not ready until 15min after the time... More

My anger is focused on one mid-aged Chinese waitress. Last week I took my guests over there for some sushi. She gave us 3 menu and didn't come to us for more than 10 minutes even when we waved our hands. We were hungry and really frustrated. If she were so busy, please shift her loading to others. If she... More

Out of all the sushi joints in the Birmingham area, this is without doubt my favorite. The service has always been friendly and quick. The food is some of the best prepared in Birmingham. The tempura rolls are amazing the beef sashimi is perfectly prepared. The dishes are fun and well balanced. The drinks are clever and well proportioned. The... More
