We came here partly because the restaurant has off street parking, which is huge on Telegraph Avenue, let alone in the busy Temescal neighborhood, and partly because after a long road trip, my son said he was craving Japanese food. When we were seated we were given the Happy Hour menu (it was around 4 p.m. when we arrived), which... More

A friend who has lunch about once a week at Kansai took me there a few days ago. Wow! First of all, there is so much CHOICE. We both had bento boxes. Howard had chicken teriyaki and California roll; I had salmon teriyaki. Each of us had soup, salad, and rice. Our total bill: under $17.00! Delicious! A large group... More

Food is excellent, fish fresh, portion size plentiful and price value. This restaurant stays open late on Saturday night. After attending a concert and not having dinner before, we were hungry but not many places still open for dining at 10 pm. Kansai is! We've been there when it was very busy, but food and service was good. We went... More

This place came highly recommended by the front desk staff at a nearby hotel and it lived up to the hype. The place was crowded (it was about 1am) the service was a bit slow but other than that it was a fantastic meal. The food isn't expensive especially if you order off the late night sushi happy hour menu.... More

We stopped here for lunch and were amazed by the long list of sushi rolls. We had two traditional rolls and two of their inventions, and all were just perfect. The service was great and the crowd were all enjoying themselves.

We stopped in Kansai as lunch time was trailing off. We had tempura, prawns for me, mixed vegetables for my daughter. All very quite crisp, fresh, large and portions, copious. The seaweed salad we shared was large enough for two and very good. Service was efficient and friendly. The decor was modest and unpretentious. I would return anytime.

I would come hear to eat great sushi and watch all the football and sports (displayed on their big screen) that I didn't get at home.

This is the place to be for rolls. They have an endless variety and all are very good. We tried a large selection just to be sure. So to is the other fare. Their sushi is great, the noodle dishes are better than anywhere I tried before and their collection of sake is outstanding. Service is fast and friendly. We... More
