First of all let me explain that 3 star means average, not bad. I have a home in Wichita but also in Florida. I travel a lot and eat a lot of sushi. It’s hard to get past Midwest sushi based solely on freshness of...More

I live in Wichita and have tried a lot of sushi. Chef Kanai creates delicious rolls that are fresh, even in the Midwest. Great service every time.

This place continues to be my favorite for sushi in Wichita. Their dishes are creative and delicious. The wait staff have always been friendly and more than helpful in answering questions. OH ya, their sake martini...WOW.

I've been here several times. I keep thinking it will be better. Almost every time the sushi tastes old and foul. Bye Kanai

Small place with long waits. Cut weekend hours to 9:30, but beware, they close much earlier. Drove across town twice & found door locked by 9:00. Also cut down most non-sushi dishes that were great. I understand why they made the cuts, but the changes...More

David Kanai is a professionaly trained sushi chef, who also has an extensive Japenese menu as well. Fresh fish is flown in from the coast as well as Japan for some incredible delacies that we've never had the opportunity to try here in Wichita. He is wonderfully informative and builds your meal based on your taste and interests. Meaning if you're not into "raw fish" he will assist you in going through the wide variety of cooked options to find something that you'll love. Penny & Chris Ellis have opened a restaurant to showcase David's talents.
