“Need a new chef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Chef owner left. Kitchen tries its best. Sushi rice and sashimi not like it used to be. Hope they can fix. Still a popular place

“great and inventive sushi off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Excellent and inventive rolls served without pretension. Great wine and sake list with a nice location on the water. Friendly and committed staff.
The only watch out is that this restaurant is pretty far from another other businesses in Frenchtown, be careful getting there.

“Astounding - Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We've been eating at Enkai since the year they opened. The sushi is as good or better than the best sushi restaurants we've visited in NYC, San Francisco, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai. This season Jorndanna and Edwuardo are greeting everyone like family and serving up innovative, fresh sushi that has an island flair and is simply superb. If you are a large party - from a boat or a villa - ask for the "big" table in the middle of the restaurant, every group that sits there has a great view of the kitchen, the water and the food for that table never seems to stop coming. Enkai is a locals favorite for on-island regulars so you know it's among the best available. Taxi drivers know the way but if you're driving it's a bit challenging to find (most great restaurants are) but well worth the effort. Don't miss this islander favorite.
