Our dining experience tonight at Kansai was very disappointing. The hibachi chef was entertaining but the food was mediocre. The salads appeared to be old. The lettuce was brown and the dressing had separated into a watery mess. The portions were strange. There was an ENORMOUS portion of rice and a very small meat portion. I guess there is a... More

We didn't like the sushi and the Philadelphia roll was not smoked salmon. For the price it was not a good dinner IMO. We will give it another try in the future b

My daughter recently took us out for a different type of meal. She order for us sushi. I was surprised it was very good and will try it again. We then had our entire meal prepared in front of us on the grill. The cook was great and very talented. I look forward to visiting again.

We were in Kentucky recently for the USTA national championships and decided to try this Japanese Steakhouse. Our chef, Tony, took extra time to entertain the children and really made the meal fantastic. He even went on to create a special bear out of an orange for my son when he found out that we were celebrating his win in... More

We've been going to Kansai for several years. We celebrate everyone's birthday doing hibachi. My husband and I go for cocktails and sushi. The staff know us on sight and have always went out of their way to make us happy. Food is fabulous and it's the only place to get a good cocktail in Etown!

It is served with miso soup to start which is usually pretty hot, and a salad with ginger dressing already on the... More

Made reservations for 20 for the first weekend in November. The food, the chef and the server were all good. I did not hear a single complaint from anyone in our group.
