My girlfriend recommended this location to me, as she was craving good sushi - and I was definitely impressed! Their wine list isn't extensive, but it is reasonably priced and appropriate. The soups and salad were very good, but the sushi was absolutely awesome. We split a Philadelphia roll (good), a Tokyo roll (absolutely amazing), and a selection of fresh... More

I have been here several times as a couple, with family and with friends. I have always been more than pleased with the quality of the food and service. I'm confused about the bad reviews.

On tonight, our family visited there to try enjoying sushi dinner but we got bad dishes and bad services. The foods had fishy smell a lot and their services were so lazy. Owner's attitude just made up excuses. My recommendation of this place is negative. You'd better to eat grocery sushi than this location sushi.

We love to get the pepper tuna. Comes served with a slight drizzle of honey wasabi. Their ginger dressing for salad is very nice, as well. Also the shitake onumashi. Friendly staff and reasonable price.

We got to Kaneyama several times a month. Always good. The service is attentive. Some great rolls on the menu. I especially love the salmon skin hand roll. Crunchy, nice combo of slightly sweet veggies, and the bacony grilled salmon skin.

It is just good sushi, and all the other Japanese delights. Family owned day in and out you get great food.

If all else fails, I can always count on Kaneyama to have great sushi and the best customer service. Here's what I've been ordering for the last 2-3 years: ***Sea Trout ***Hamachi Kama (Yellow Tail Collar Bone) ***Baked Mussel ***Salmon Sashimi wasn't fresh the last time I ordered it, but the manager corrected this. Waitress noticed I barely touched the... More

Had dinner there with a group of friends, and was really excited to see okonomiyaki on the menu. It has been a while since I had it. So ordered it along with Unaju (Eel). I have been comparing how well they do Japanese food by the quality of how they served the Eel. The Okonomiyaki was not the real thing... More
