Good grill food. We eat there about once a month. Bill is usually $120+. Roll had a long hair in it. Very disgusting and gross. The waitress called over the owner. He said his sushi person has short black hair, therefore it was not their hair! No apology, Nothing taken off the bill, no replacement sushi, Very smart aleck person.... More

I have eaten at this place for several years and love it, went for my sisters twins birthday. My nieces boyfriend is allergic to shrimp. This kind of allergy can be very dangerous at this type of restaurant. But they were awesome, his food was made first and then the seafood was cooked for everyone else. I was impressed, and... More

The sushi is always wonderful and the staff is very attentive and provide fast service. When I'm craving Japanese cuisine, this is my first choice when I'm in Elizabethtown.

Fantastic sushi in Kentucky, who'd thunk it...I've passed by this place for over a year and finally treated myself and it's amazing. Ever in Elizabethtown Kentucky you got to stop at kansai sushi, the snowball roll is the best I've had in a long time, liked it so much I ordered it twice!

My favorite Japanese place in Elizabethtown. They have a good mix of sushi and entrée items. The prices are decent, the restaurant is clean, and the service is excellent.

The service was ok but not good. The biggest problem was the amount of sodium they used. I guess they did that to get you to drink more. I paid 28 dollars for a tough steak and a 4 shrimp. I will never return.

Kansai is a favorite for our family when it comes to a nice night out in town. I've never had a bad sushi roll and the kids meals have sooooooo much food for the price! We always have leftovers. Take out is also quick and easy!
