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!

I must not be a "foodie" like the rest of these bad reviews, but I like a good meal! I tried their teriyaki chicken and it was delicious! A friend recommended the yum? Sauce and it was amazing! 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.

I have been to this Japanese steakhouse several times over the last two years and have noticed a steady decline in the quality of their food and service. On my most recent trip I was disturbed to see a health department rating of only 87 for improper food handling and cooks not wearing hair nets. I was even more disappointed... More

Kansai is an excellent Japanese Steakhouse. It is located in a new building, very nice and clean, they have a truly full service sushi bar. They can make almost anything and every piece of sushi ive had was excellent. The hibachi grill had excellent chefs, who are entertaining and do all the onion volcanoes and juggle eggs on their tongs.... More

Birthday meal gone bad. Servers were rude rude rude. Food good, chef entertaining, and drinks good. Service terrible and prices too high. They did somewhat redeem themselves by comping 2 of the 4 meals, but we went for a special birthday experience, not a hassle and a discussion with management about how they suck. Think we will try somewhere else... More
