Sushi

We are not locals and stopped in for some sushi. I was a little skeptical given some of the reviews for this place. Our experience was great! The sushi was delicious, and the staff was really nice. Everything was out fast. I feel like the sushi is more on the expensive side.

Ate at the hibachi grill for a mid-week date night. The hostess sat us at a nice location, however moments later we were asked to switch location. No menu was provided as they must have believed we knew what to order. After requesting one, I noticed tofu was an option on the regular menu. No luck with our server, she... More

Two of us ate this past week and as usual it was excellent. The Filet was great, cooked perfectly medium, the vegetables and rice were excellent. Cook was fabulous as was the waitress. Sushi was very good (Derby Roll), Salad was good and cold. The only thing wrong with their meals is the soup. We both basically had a cup... More

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
