Best sushi in Little Rock. Service was a little slow tonight but it is a Friday and this is unusual for them.

Excellent sushi! You must try the Crazy Monkey. Everything tastes so fresh with a very nice presentation. A little on the noisy side but regardless, an excellent dining experience!!

Our favorite sushi restaurant - and the diver’s scallops are always delicious and perfectly cooked. You can’t go wrong with calamari to start things off, and the seaweed salad is a tasty starter or side dish....but the rolls, oh, the rolls! The Mason is always a favorite for us.

We really enjoyed our date night at Kemuri! The atmosphere was pleasant and our service was excellent. We had the pork tenderloin skewers for a starter and the sauce was delicious! I had 2 sushi rolls which tasted amazing...they were big and I had to cut the pieces in half, but that seems typical for specialty rolls...and it was still tasty and totally worth it. The waiter recommended the cod for my wife and she can't stop talking about how great it was! Nicely cooked and great flavor. Overall it was one of our nicest date night meals in a while.

Kemuri is still and will always be the only place I stop for, for Sushi in Little Rock! I love this place and am a frequent customer!! Tonight I had the Crazy Monkey and green tea cheesecake. It was delicious. My friends also enjoyed their meals as well! It was their first time here and Kemuri, as always, did not disappoint. Our waiter was amazing! Thank you all for the continuous, but consistent wonderful food and service!!

Great food. The ambiance is too bright and the TV's lessen the vibe. The bar is beautiful and hip. We will sit there next time.

From the ribs to duck tenderloin...from salmon skewers to a roll with edible Gold, Kemuri has one of the best Robata and Sushi menu's in Little Rock. It's a must try for visitors and residents alike!

Food was delicious and staff was very friendly and helpful. Cocktails were delightfully good also. We ordered 4 sushi rolls which were all marvelous and the service was very efficient. The noise level was quite loud which made conversation difficult at times, but this was the only remotely negative quality of the evening. I definitely look forward to many more visits to Kemuri.

My husband and I went for dinner for my birthday. We LOVE sushi and Kemuri, by far, has the best in town! Very fresh and flavorful! We also tried the Bibimbap and the Panang Curry, both were equally delicious as well. Our server, Andrew, was very attentive and did a fantastic job! Our only disappointment was the noise level, it was difficult to hear each other.

Some of the best sushi my family has ever had and we've had a lot from all over the country. The apps and the bowls were fantastic as well. We've been twice now for a late lunch/early dinner with Alex as our server. He too is the best!!

Great food and service. Appreciate that the server listen and cared about our experience. Brought some extra sauces to have with great tasting scallops. Salmon was prepared differently than expected, but delicious. Great atmosphere and fun to people watch.

Had been there once. Had a good experience, so tried again. Food and surroundings are excellent with a very nice selection on the menu. Service was slightly slow because our waitress was also tending bar. We will definitely be back.

The food and service were outstanding, from the appetizers all the way through the decadent desserts. It was rather loud in there due to two large celebratory dinners going on nearby but we had eight diners ourselves so I suppose we contributed to that! We all really enjoyed the dinner and will return.
