Everytime I come here, I leave happy! The sushi is fantastic and the chefs are great. Sit at the bar and order O-Ma-Ka-Se, you'll be happy you did. They have unique fishes from time to time so check on their site or fb page. Try the Volcano, Ca Roll with Cream Cheese Covered with Spicy Crab Stickol. certainly one of... More

Kaissen has the best sushi in Tampa. The fish is very fresh and they always have soy paper. We recommend it highly. We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant.

It was my fist time eating there for a quick lunch and I will go back for more. I had the Blue Crab roll and the shrimp and vegetable tempura. They were both a hit! I wish I had received more than two shrimps but I love vegetables too and they were perfectly breaded and fried. I will go back... More

I'm a huge fan of sushi and have eaten it all over the country. But I have to say, in my book, nothing tops Kaisen's ultra-fresh ingredients and thick, hearty rolls. The restaurant is nothing fancy, but the sushi is pure poetry. I truly have not found its equal anywhere.

I make sure to visit Kaisen every time I'm in Tampa. It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside is where all the goodness happens. Food is delicious, and service is good without being over the top. Obviously they have standard Japanese fare but 2 of my favorites dishes are the stuffed mushrooms and spicy sea bugs which... More

I was sitting at the sushi bar eating when along comes a german roach (the kind you can never get rid of.) When I blanched and called over the chef, he killed it with a napkin. I then recommended an organic pesticide company. Since I lost my appetite, I left. Also, ambience: I like a sushi restaurant to be an... More

This is where I take people, if they like sushi. It's always fresh and clean and delicious. This is owned by a Japanese man and his American wife- And the food is 100 percent authentic! They even host deep-sea fishing trips and use the fresh catches for their sushi. It doesn't get any better than this in the entire Tampa... More

Dear readers, We went back over Halloween and then again in November and boy has it gotten better. Bathroom are shiney and clean; kitchen same so; partition curtains could use a cleaning from grease but the staff and management style and the staff clothing + wait staff are par up one more star. It's as if a fog lifted the... More
