“Great food and great sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Kansai is an excellent Japanese Steakhouse. It is located in a new building, very nice and clean, they have a truly full service sushi bar. They can make almost anything and every piece of sushi ive had was excellent. The hibachi grill had excellent chefs, who are entertaining and do all the onion volcanoes and juggle eggs on their tongs. The rice is well seasoned. Use the "Yum Yum" sauce. It's good! Average meal cost is $11. Good stuff and will be back again.

“They blew it....but made it right.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Birthday meal gone bad. Servers were rude rude rude.
Food good, chef entertaining, and drinks good.
Service terrible and prices too high. They did somewhat redeem themselves by comping 2 of the 4 meals, but we went for a special birthday experience, not a hassle and a discussion with management about how they suck.
Think we will try somewhere else next time.

“Not that great. Going down hill!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

First, lunch now ends at 2:00 pm. Every other Japenese grill goes until 3:00 pm.
Staff not that nice. SLOW. Soup not served at proper tempature. Food not too bad. Over all, I would say Kansai needs to reorganize their way of doing everything or they won't stay in business much longer. The competition is much better right now. It is a really nice place and I hate to see them close but it's gonna happen unless they make some major changes. I won't come here for a long time when Ginza is so close and is much better.

“Favorite place to go for sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

We love the sushi here. We live 30 minutes away but will make a special trip just to eat at Kansai. We have also eaten at the hibachi grill and it was also very good. They always have special sushi rolls and it is fun to try new things. We enjoyed the Hulk roll. The Derby roll is always a favorite and the chicken fried rice is super!
