My husband and I were in Nashville for two nights and we ate here both nights. The sushi was wonderful, the staff was so nice, the price was really good and I loved the atmosphere~ little simple place (clean)~like where the locals would eat! I had the Nashville Roll both nights and it is AWESOME! I also had the crunchy shrimp and the shrimp tempura and they were both really good. My husband had the red snapper and it was wonderful as well. Egg rolls are great and the Ginger dressing on the salad is to die for! We will be back when we visit Nashville again!

We arrived at 11:45 a.m. for a business lunch and were seated and served menus promptly. The individuals who ordered sushi received their meals quickly. However, the member of our party who ordered a non-sushi meal received her meal about 20 minutes after everyone else!

All of the meals were a great price. Most of the food was good; however, the raw fish in the sushi was not the freshest that we have had elsewhere.

Overall, good, affordable, and fast sushi restaurant in Midtown. If you want something other than sushi, be prepared to wait a while longer.

This is bargain, not budget, Japanese, in that the quality & selection of the food isn't reflected by the lower prices. Ken's has been a college & West End favorite at least since I was a grad student at nearby Belmont, 12 years ago. When the gang decided on sushi, there was no further discussion as to where-Ken's was always the right choice. The menu has expanded to include hibachi choices, & the cold soba was a great accompaniment to my sushi rolls. There's nothing special about the scenery at Ken's, but after the food & small check arrive, you'll realize the whole of Ken's is more than the sum of its parts.

We found this little restaurant down the street from our hotel. Nothing fancy here except the food. We tried several different dishes and liked them all.
