I have eaten at this place for several years and love it, went for my sisters twins birthday. My nieces boyfriend is allergic to shrimp. This kind of allergy can be very dangerous at this type of restaurant. But they were awesome, his food was made first and then the seafood was cooked for everyone else. I was impressed, and... More

The sushi is always wonderful and the staff is very attentive and provide fast service. When I'm craving Japanese cuisine, this is my first choice when I'm in Elizabethtown.

Fantastic sushi in Kentucky, who'd thunk it...I've passed by this place for over a year and finally treated myself and it's amazing. Ever in Elizabethtown Kentucky you got to stop at kansai sushi, the snowball roll is the best I've had in a long time, liked it so much I ordered it twice!

My favorite Japanese place in Elizabethtown. They have a good mix of sushi and entrée items. The prices are decent, the restaurant is clean, and the service is excellent.

The service was ok but not good. The biggest problem was the amount of sodium they used. I guess they did that to get you to drink more. I paid 28 dollars for a tough steak and a 4 shrimp. I will never return.

Kansai is a favorite for our family when it comes to a nice night out in town. I've never had a bad sushi roll and the kids meals have sooooooo much food for the price! We always have leftovers. Take out is also quick and easy!

This was my first experience at a Hibachi style restaurant and overall I was satisfied. I'm typically not a fan of having to wait an extended period of time after being seated for my order to be taken but luckily we were surround by another family that kept us entertained. I would have to put most of the blame on... More

Three couples and 2 children all want to have dinner & fun together on New Years Eve .... What do you do? Someone suggested Hibachi, someone suggested this town, this place, and another made reservations for 8. And we roll! This restaurant seems a house divided. The hostess table was home central for drama. Every servers complaint, every confused waitress,... More
