When we arrived we thought the restaurant was closed. We were so disappointed as we have tried to eat here before and it was closed. We were checking out the place when Eduardo greeted us with a warm welcome. He didn't say well we don't open until 4:30...instead he said come on in let me get you started with a drink we would be happy to roll some sushi for you! Wow music to our ears. Eduardo is an asset to Enkai! We had the best sushi, service and sake ever! We will be back thanks Eduardo and Steve for making our rainy day of full of sunshine! See you soon

So this is our 2nd time at Enkai. We were there in December of 2010 when they first opened. I'm pleased to report that they were still there and going strong. It was a Saturday night and packed with lots of locals, so that speaks volumes to how go a place really is.

The sushi was fresh, so fresh, that they were out of two types of fish because of popularity. No worries. The remaining fish and rolls were astounding! And I've had sushi in Maui, San Diego, and every other "great sushi" location in the US.

The thing that really made the experience was the service. These guys take care of their guests, whether from out of town or local. They catered to us just like we were like locals. And they knew right away, but it didn't matter. I've been to places where they just take care of their regulars and treat the out-of-towners like 2nd class citizens. Thanks for making us feel at home.

And if you still have room ..... you've got to try the tempura donut with java chip ice cream!!! My daughter wolfed down most of ours and said it was the best dessert .... ever! It was. I can vouch for it.

Don't let anyone tell you it is hard to find or in a remote location. The taxi drivers know the route just fine, and with good directions or a GPS, make the trip. You won't be sorry.

Loved the location- I would never have found the restaurant if not for the cab driver, and I've been to Frenchtown many times. Loved the food - so fresh, nicely prepared and presented, and large portions. Our server, who was incredibly busy, still kept our drinks fresh and table clean. Although one of our more expensive meals in the islands, we will definitely go back due to the high quality of the food. Thanks Chef Kate!!
