Wonderful dinner with friends. We had an assortment of appetizers — Tuna Poke, Calamari and Gyoza — followed by dinner choices — Chicken Teriyaki, Salmon Teriyaki and two Maki rolls, Kamikaze and Spicy Crunch. Everything was delicious! Love this place!
Kansaku is a reliably good neighborhood place in downtown Evanston. The food is delicious, consistent and reasonably priced, the atmosphere is pleasant and the service good. A great place for a weekday dinner. Also specials on wine on Wednesday - I had a decent chardonnay for $5.
Kansaku is a fantastic restaurant, combining American-style Japanese food (rolls, etc) with some of the best sushi this side of the Tokyo Fish Market! Service is excellent and attentive, the sake selection is solid, and the desserts are also very good. Great location in downtown Evanston, as well.
Great Service. Better sushi. Perfect atmosphere.
Reservations not handled very well. Got there for a 7:30 PM and was not seated till 7:50.
Kansaku is terrific!! The room is modern and tasteful in design, and as on our Saturday night dinner, with every table full, we could have a conversation among our 6. The elaborate menu delivers from sushi to cooked Japanese items with well thought through Bento Box options. Throughout, service is pleasant and professional. Wine options cover the globe and beer and sake menus complement the cuisine.
Waitress was excellent & had great attitude while memorizing our order perfectly
Looking for sushi in Evanston and it was very good. Nice, quiet, relaxing.
A very relaxed atmosphere with attentive service and a high quality broad menu. I started with their Green Tea and it helped set the mood.
as always this place rocks - have been going there for years and NEVER had a bad meal
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 love Kansaku and always have the best experience!
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.
We have been there many times and it is the best Japanese food in many miles.
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.
Great place with friendly staff and delicious food. Truly enjoyed our visit. This place has interesting sakes and beers from Japan. Definitely will be back!!!
A delightful dining experience, the food was delicious and well presented. The service was friendly, courteous and efficient. We can rely on Kansaku for excellent Japanese fare.
The service was extremely slow. We had Togo find our waitress on three separate occasions. They were clearly understaffed.
Dinner was great. Will definitely go back and recommend to others!!
Great sushi. Very nice restaurant. Service was a bit slow, saw only one girl serving all of the tables that day, maybe it was bad luck and she didn't have help. But overall a good place to eat, would be back for sure.
Very nice visit--our server was friendly and attentive, the food was great, and it wasn't too crowded or loud on a Saturday night.
Excellent sushi and very creative maki rolls.
We had the salmon Bento box and shared it. It was more than enough for two and every type of food was delicious especially the salmon and very reasonable. Service was great.
Delicious food! Great ambience, I was impressed with the quality of the sushi
Delicious food, trendy atmosphere, always a great meal and service here.
Had never been here before and booked it on a lark. Was a very pleasant surprise. Delicious and very fresh fish and sushi. Waitress was also very helpful.
Good food in a quiet comfortable setting adds up to a fine experience. We enjoy coming and have not been disappointed.
Fresh food, excellent service, nice decor and reasonable prices. Recommend!
Chose this nearby favorite to meet my brother who lives in California and is a discerning foodie. West Coast sushi is hard to beat! Most often, the sushi here pales in comparison. Fake crab, anyone? Not here! My bro really enjoyed the meal, as did I. #sushisnobs
Food and drinks were excellent
Hannah is terrific! She is thoughtful and remembers everything from prior visits.
Best sushi in Evanston! Excellent selection of rolls and made to perfection. Generous portions and very tasty options. Kansaku offers a comfortable and (relatively) quiet ambiance and a friendly staff. Dinner plates are also delicious (sea bass is recommended!).
Enjoyed our dinner at Kansaku: great appetizers (poke and tuna tartare were excellent) and good maki rolls. Service was quick and everyone was nice and friendly
Kansaku is realiably good food attractively served. Our waitress was delightful. We had a wonderful and delicious evening celebrating a friend's special birthday.
As first time diners, my date and I were very impressed by the quality of the food and the creative combination of ingredients. Fresh seafood. Excellent sushi and sashimi. We will definitely return to try more things on this menu.
A favorite restaurant that we return to frequently.
