Sushi | Leawood, Kansas City, KS

Went for Mother’s Day and had a fantastic experience. Made a reservation and had the opportunity to dine in one of the private rooms. The service was outstanding. Our server was personable and engaging. My wife and kids (12, 10, and 3) all had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Sushi House for a family dining experience or simple date night. More

We dined on the patio on a perfect day for it. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. The cedar salad with chicken was great. Just the right amount of dressing. We had a reservation, but seating in the patio is first come, first served. Great place for drinks, lunch or dinner. I’ll be back. More

There is always something intriguing on the menu, and we really like the vibe and location. The beer, wine, and cocktail selections are refreshed continually. We've had one of the best burgers in town here on previous occasions. The Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich is truly extraordinary. Bennett was an outstanding server. Always look forward to going back.

$5 burger Monday is fantastic. Great deal and delicious food. This place is usually pretty busy for lunch. It was a business meeting so we made a reservation and they got us seated right away when we arrived. Their full menu is delicious as well, with moderate pricing. More

Discover Leawood

While historically known for its unique and masterful barbecue, Kansas City has been booming on the food front lately. Of course, there are fantastic steak houses, as well there should be. And yes, the barbecue is out of this world. However, there are plenty of new and lighter choices that expand on what people traditionally think of as Kansas City fare. The Leawood neighborhood has delicious, French-style bistros and killer burrito joints. Their many cafes offer delicious coffees and pastries, some with fantastic soups, sandwiches and salads. There are also great cultural choices like classic Italian, Chinese, Spanish and Mediterranean. With a flare for the new tucked into an older tradition, Kansas City is really expanding fast into the modern food scene.
