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

I recently came here with my girlfriend and we ordered the chefs special. It's a five course meal of some of the best sushi I have ever had. I recommend this place to any sushi lover.

I just wish it were in New Orleans & not out in Fat City. We would go there several times a week if it were! The owner makes the sushi while his darling wife serves it & I believe the rest of the family is in the kitchen. Go for the succulent & tender squid steak, the amazing sail fish... More

If you're looking for a sushi place where all the locals go, Kanno's is the place to go! It's a quaint hole-in-the-wall that I've been going to for four years now. I occasionally try other sushi places, but I will always come back to Kanno's. Their sushi is extremely fresh and the rolls are all unique and delicious unlike the... More

Love their very fresh sushi. The two people who run the restaurant are Elvis and Lynn. They make it come alive. Literally, Elvis will make anything you can imagine with stlyle and so delicious. Lynn's chocolate dessert is not to be missed. My mouth is watering for their food as I write this!
