We love the food at Kansaku, which keeps us coming back. In addition, service is always friendly and the place is small and quiet allowing friends to converse.

Third time at Kansaku. Very good every time. Large selection of rolls. Interesting and varied tapas-style appetizers in addition to the sushi & sashimi. Nice selection of sake, Japanese beer, and Japanese whisky. Also a good selection of wine, other liquors, and specialty cocktails. Will have to try the sushi bar next time !

We have enjoyed coming to Kansaku for years. We eat here at least once a week. The sushi is amazing, drinks are fantastic, very quiet. Perfect for date night, or a nice healthy dinner with quality ingredients if you don't want to cook dinner.

Very nice atmosphere, somewhat quiet but not too quiet. Rolls are really large, fresh and yummy! Prices were fair for all the food you get.

A warm greeting, a lovely, bright modern space and the freshest of ingredients from a varied menu of Japanese and Asian specialties elevate Kansaku to a high rating. Service was attentive, professional and at a high standard. A nice wine list complements the menu. We;ll be back.
