You may think twice about this place if you call to make a reservation and get the stoned-sounding staff person I talked to, but disregard any initial concerns. The cuisine here is some of the best I've ever eaten outside Japan, and certainly the place to go in NOLA. For example, they offer REAL wasabi and pickled ginger. This stuff... More

Fresh sushi, prompt service and delicious homemade chocolate to complete your meal! My favorite rolls are the Elvis and Protein rolls (no rice!)

There are a lot of sushi options around where i live but this is my go to place. I'd recommend the spider roll or the shrimp shumai dumpling soup. Those are my go-to favorites.

Love the new location on 20th Street. Much easier to park. Nice, cozy atmosphere. Decided on appetizers to share. The sashimi was super fresh. Mussels, crab, salmon, tuna, sea bass.... all were outstanding. We ordered about 8 different items and none disappointed. Surprise decadent chocolate (complimentary) dessert was perfection. Don't miss this place!

The sushi chef Elvis n his wife really have the best sushi dishes in the New Orleans area. Try the Tuna Salmon N Crab Salad. Also the Fish Salad. The Elvis roll is really special. Parking is very minimal but the Sushi really makes this place worth checking out.

This place really does a spectacular job. The food is good, some of the best in the city (really is), and people are helpful with what to order. The sushi is some of the best on the gulf coast, and the chocolate dessert things you get after the meal or crazy good. I didn't even know this place existed for... More

Wow, truly a hidden gem. It can be hard to find real good sushi places, but this place was one of them. Hidden in a odd building in an odd location, the service was great, and the food was amazing. I wish I could go back and try more, but the big must-eat dish here is the Elvis rolls. They... More

By far one of the best places to get sushi in Louisiana, Kanno brings California style sushi to New Orleans. The restaurant itself is out of the way, in a small building. Do not let the location put you off, for anyone in the mood for sushi in NOLA must stop by here. One of the best features of this... More

Read reviews about this unassuming Restaurant in Fat City and wanted to give it a try. It moved just about 3 blocks away on 20th street across from Lakeside Mall. We were greeted by a very cordial waiter who was very attentive. My wife and I ordered edamame, the Elvis Roll, the crawfish roll, and a "South" roll. Can't remember... More
