Great List of Sushi Rolls

We stopped here for lunch and were amazed by the long list of sushi rolls. We had two traditional rolls and two of their inventions, and all were just perfect. The service was great and the crowd were all enjoying themselves.

We stopped in Kansai as lunch time was trailing off. We had tempura, prawns for me, mixed vegetables for my daughter. All very quite crisp, fresh, large and portions, copious. The seaweed salad we shared was large enough for two and very good. Service was efficient and friendly. The decor was modest and unpretentious. I would return anytime.

I would come hear to eat great sushi and watch all the football and sports (displayed on their big screen) that I didn't get at home.

This is the place to be for rolls. They have an endless variety and all are very good. We tried a large selection just to be sure. So to is the other fare. Their sushi is great, the noodle dishes are better than anywhere I tried before and their collection of sake is outstanding. Service is fast and friendly. We... More

This restaurant is also known as Kan Sai. On a Friday night, I walked in wondering why there was a crowd and few seats empty at midnight at a Japanese restaurant. This is that place to head to in Oakland, CA if you need late night food as it is gooooooooood. I ordered teriyaki chicken which came with rice, a... More

Been by here a couple of times, finally went with friends. Got your standard Japanese affair, rolls, bento, udon, soba, etc. Bento portions are really big. One of my friends complained about the soup for the udon, too much MSG. But there is the menu on the last page, that's the less stereotypical and more creative stuff. You want to... More

The sushi is good. The Sashimi salad is huge and one of the best deals. The ambiance, however, has much to be desired. I can't stand the big tv's and video screens going with music videos and sports broadcasting. Seems like they are mixing too much here to appeal to everyone. Its not a restful place to eat although the... More
