We have eaten sushi from California to New York, and always looked forward to our annual visit to Enkai to try Katie's inventive and delicious rolls made with the freshest of fish. Apparently Enkai is under new ownership and while the selections on the menu are familiar, the quality is gone forever. In fact, the night we visited we were... More

Dear Cherirosenbradley, We are sorry to hear that your most recent experience with us was disappointing. While it's true that Katie left the restaurant two years ago, the current owner, Steve, has been managing the kitchen for more than three years. Food quality is our most important focus, which is one of the reasons we have temporarily removed eel from... More

Fish was incredibly fresh, staff very friendly, and the roll combinations are amazing. We sat with Dan @ the sushi bar and he killed it! The ambiance is also spectacular. This will definitely be my first choice in dining out from now on.

For the Island I'll give them 4/5 stars. I should preface this review - I am from the Pacific NW and routinely each sushi from Portland and Seattle, which short of going to asia is pretty much untouchable. I ordered the bento box and found the rice to be somewhat dry and undercooked. The roll was difficult to enjoy on... More

Dear JohnRader, Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry that the rice was dry when you had lunch with us. As you indicated, the rice can make or break the quality of a roll. We are constantly on the look out for areas of improvement and areas of success. We appreciate your comments. Sincerely, Enkai Sushi Bar P.S. We're... More

This place was great! Fresh and tasteful sushi. The place is a hole in the wall but it's worth it. The view its spectacular and it's by the water. Friendly staff. Check it out!

We have visited Enkai around 3/4 times and love it there. Erik the bartender is fabulous and makes some of the best cocktails! I would recommend the cheeseburger wontons, baconator sushi roll & the sashimi is lush! Definitely worth a visit, great views too.

the place has good ambiance and is on the ocean, but the chefs are not well versed in making sushi. they push the rice hard into the sheets and it comes out soggy.

Very hard to find for us but once here at 8pm, we had the best dinner looking out at the ocean... The waitress was awesome and friendly. Good wines and rolls where tasty.

Found this place on one of my visits to Customs for a quick lunch before heading to the airport. Went in, it was empty and asked for a bento box. My salmon was ok nothing great, waitress was way too serious and not friendly. The good part was the view right there at the water and that food was ready... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, great staff and really good food. Loved it and I am not a sushi fan! The sushi fans that I was with, absolutely loved it. We will definitely be back.
