Start with the grilled edamame, which has a nice char and flame flavor. We order 2 kadoma sushi appetizers as our meal. It's essentially a new way to present the ingredients of a spicy tuna avocado roll with jalapeño and sweet sauce--so delicious!! When back in Birmingham, we have to visit jinsei for this sushi! Small romantic restaurant, trendy atmosphere,... More

This is my third visit and coming from a Japanese family and from living in California, I've had a lot a sushi and I can safely say the sushi here is great. There are other items besides sushi for those who want something else, so it would be a good place to take anyone. I definitely recommend it.

I really enjoy this place. The hot rock appetizer is fun. Ask for the hot rock and tuna. The sushi is really good. Only drawback is limited seating, and even more so if the weather doesn't allow for patio dining. I would recommend this place as a fun experience with good food.

Busy on a Thursday night, but seating for 2 provided within 15 minutes. Menu is thorough but not overwhelming. Knowledgeable waiter gave guidance. Our experience was that the food service was better than the bar service. Cocktail arrived after the entree and lacked the alcohol relative to other ingredients. The presentations matched the fresh flavors - fantastic! We sat at... More

Tried several rolls. We love sushi however, In all honesty the food here was just "Meh". Nothing spectacular and definitely overpriced for what you get the atmosphere was nice however.

We were out and about and decided to stop into Jinsei for a quick dinner. The appetizer we got was the tempura plate, it was really tasty and cooked nicely. We both ordered a different sushi, but both were very tasty. I think the portions were a little small, compared to other sushi restaurants. Overall it was a good meal,... More

The sushi is great. Monday night special is "Kadoma Tuna". It's a real winner! This item is not a sushi role, more like a mound of sushi like ingredients. I love this because the avocados on top are always perfect and the amount of tuna it comes with is generous. Pretty much everything you get here is good. It can... More
