A true ninja, didn't even know it existed

This place really does a spectacular job. The food is good, some of the best in the city (really is), and people are helpful with what to order. The sushi is some of the best on the gulf coast, and the chocolate dessert things you get after the meal or crazy good. I didn't even know this place... read more

Wow, truly a hidden gem. It can be hard to find real good sushi places, but this place was one of them. Hidden in a odd building in an odd location, the service was great, and the food was amazing. I wish I could go back and try more, but the big must-eat dish here is the Elvis rolls. They... More

By far one of the best places to get sushi in Louisiana, Kanno brings California style sushi to New Orleans. The restaurant itself is out of the way, in a small building. Do not let the location put you off, for anyone in the mood for sushi in NOLA must stop by here. One of the best features of this... More

Read reviews about this unassuming Restaurant in Fat City and wanted to give it a try. It moved just about 3 blocks away on 20th street across from Lakeside Mall. We were greeted by a very cordial waiter who was very attentive. My wife and I ordered edamame, the Elvis Roll, the crawfish roll, and a "South" roll. Can't remember... More

There is no place in this state that serves sushi this delicious. Very professional. Japanese people go crazy for this place and everyone says that it will be difficult to eat sushi anywhere else after this place.

The sushi is good and fresh. The decor and ambiance is strictly low rent. The exterior is a strip shopping center but the area is safe, the place is clean and the food is good. The staff is authentic and native Japanese.

I have eating at a handful of sushi restaurants in the Metaire/New Orleans area and so far they have all been pretty average. I am not saying the Kanno is any better or any greater, but the prices allow it to outshine the rest. Although the location of the restaurant could be a turn off, once inside the small restaurant...

If you're unfamiliar with the area (and I was - I was here on a business trip), you might lose your nerve when you drive up. Located in a strip mall-type storefront and a stone's throw away from a strip club that literally has a "GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS" sign in neon in front of it, this isn't the type of... More

This hole in the wall restaurant tucked amongst strip clubs, seedy bars and apartment complexes is a great find. The owner/sushi chef makes great sushi/sashimi and his wife waitresses most of the time, and hence the service is great. I love their sushi. It is really top grade. For people who have visited Japan, this is a typical Japanese family... More
