A word from Sekisui Midtown
At Sekisui Midtown, sushi chefs don't just push the envelope; they put the envelope through the paper shredder. Chefs are encouraged to show off their creativity and listen to customer’s ideas, creating sushi rolls that can’t be found anywhere else. Also, purists will be delighted with the exhaustive lineup of nigiri sushi - perfectly sliced fish atop a mound of rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar and a touch of sake. The restaurant’s fresh fish is flown in several times a week from locations such as Hawaii, Louisiana, and Los Angeles. There’s something to please everyone. The extensive menu covers lots of familiar Japanese cuisine territory with teriyaki, tempura and udon noodles. Lively and noisy might not be typical descriptions of most Japanese restaurants, but the words fit Sekisui Midtown. As it is always full of familiar faces, Sekisui is a popular neighborhood hang-out.

    Years ago I introduced some very skeptical family to sushi for the first time at this location and since then they're more enthusiastic than I am about it! This place is consistently great in all respects. I appreciate knowing there's a solid choice in dining no matter what day or time. Get the Michael Jackson!!! Early bird choices are wonderful and a real bargain, too. We love it all and everything is totally worth the cost.

    the place was very accommodating to our child, as she eats Sushi. the only minor issue was the A/C was too cold. We had to go outside to warm up in the humidity to get the chill off.

    Our birthday dinner for eight people last night was excellent! Wait service was over the top and the food matched it. For those who did not like raw sushi there were many satisfactory choices. Personally, I can't get enough of their ginger salad dressing!

    I took my son there for his 17th birthday dinner. He loves sushi and since he's older I wanted to do something more grown up instead of the usual kid entertainment places. His best friend came along as well and he ordered a blue crab dish that he loved and ate all of it. My son had 4 orders of sushi which he loved and scarffed it down like a vacuum. I had a steak & vegetable dish. The steak was great but the veggies were over cooked and mushy. We had a really fun time and the boys enjoyed watching the sushi chefs. I would recommend Sekisui to anyone that like sushi or Japanese food.

    As soon as we arrived, our waitress told us we had 15 minutes to order before the chef was done for the night but we were on time for our reservations. She brought the ticket to us as we were still eating, and did not come to check on us again. When we walked outside, she was standing checking her cell phone while smoking a cigarette. Overall poor experience, I have been many times and have had great service. I don't really know what went wrong this time.

    My partner and I went there for our 30th anniversary. We both ordered the Shogun bento boxes and were very satisfied with the food. There was such a variety of food on that menu item. All the food was hot, as in temp. and was more delicious than the last time we ordered it. We would definately go back there again for quality and tasty Japanese food.

I enjoyed their selection of sushi and especially like the ones they made based on customer request. Their prices and selection are reasonable. It seems a little cramped in there but it’s a good environment and the staff are courteous.

    We had reservations for a party of six on a Friday night, and the fact that things had changed and we only were going to have five persons presented no problems at all. After being quickly seated, we were given menus and our drink orders were quickly taken and fulfilled. We ordered two appetizers - fried spring rolls and the wasabi shumai. The spring rolls had a good flavor and were light. The wasabi shumai could have been a bit more spicy, but was a favorite at the table. Both the clear and cloudy soups were ordered and eaten, and both appeared to be enjoyed by all. House salads were very fresh. Most at the table had one of the combination entrees, mine the Samarai, which was very good. Not fancy, not shiny, but a good dinner experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Sekisui was a great traditional Japanese restaurant. There was no hibachi grills and was purely a sit down menu affair. The sushi was just OK. I had 4 rolls all of which were very tiny compared to other places I've had rolls from. Also they really are heavy handed with the sesame oil, it seemed like every dish, including my rolls, tasted heavily of it. Our Menu for the evening: Lamb Chops Appetizer 5/5 Miso Soup 4/5 House Salad 3/5 Dynamite Roll 3/5 Spicy Tuna Roll 4/5 Eel and Shrimp Tempera Roll (Forgot name) 5/5 Spider Roll 4/5 Yakiniku (Beef and veggies) 3/5

    We were immediately shown to our table. The waiter eventually arrived and asked for drink orders; he quickly told me they could not fix what I requested. I said we had had it at Sekisui Pacific Rim; his immediate response was that while it was possible I was remembering correctly, each Sekisui is different, and the midtown location has absolutely nothing in common with the others but the name. His approach to waiting the table was lackadaisical at best -- bad enough that I suggested leaving after appetizers and going elsewhere for dinner. My companion insisted that we stay. Before the entrees arrived, a different server showed up -- she explained that our waiter had had to leave. Wish we'd had her all along -- she was great!
