About Sekisui - East

Sekisui Restaurants feature award winning sushi and authentic Japanese cuisine. Chefs are encouraged to show off their creativity and listen to customer’s ideas, creating sushi rolls that can’t be found anywhere else, and purists will be delighted with the exhaustive lineup of nigiri sushi - perfectly sliced fish atop a mound of seasoned rice. 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. As it is always full of familiar faces, Sekisui is a popular neighborhood hang-out.

The restaurant read my special request on Open Table and seated us accordingly. Our waitress went beyond what was expected to make our meal special.

A member of our party ordered a glass of the house cab with her meal. They brought the glass of wine to the table and she drank it. When they brought the bill, we noticed they had charged us double the price of the house cab she ordered. When we questioned it, they acknowledged that we did in fact order the house cab and they apologized for the error -- but then refused to adjust the price because they actually brought us a more expensive glass of wine.

So, we order something at a certain price, you bring us something different, don't tell us it's different, then charge us twice as much for it -- and then refuse to adjust the price because you brought us a more expensive item we didn't order? That's poor customer service. We love Sekisui, but this was a major turnoff.

The servers were very attentive to our needs. The sushi was prepared very quickly even though the restaurant was busy. Great place for a date or a small group.

Consistent delivery of Japanese staples such as teriyaki & tempura. Plenty of options at sushi bar (operated by a real Japanese chef) but not much that could be considered as value. Well located on Poplar as east Memphis & Germantown merge.

The website indicated a "happy hour." When we arrived we were notified that there is not a happy hour at this location. We also booked for the Japanese style dining. We were then informed that there will be a 18% gratuity for eating in this area for only three people!! That's ridiculous!! When booking online, website should specify these instructions clearly!! I will not visit this location again!

The restaurant was very clean and the staff was extremely attentive & courteous. The sushi chefs were very knowledgeable and prepared great looking & tasting sushi. If you're going on a date or out with friends I would highly recommend this quiet hidden little gem.

The food was very fresh and the portions were good with the exception of the beef which was light. The flavor of everything was outstanding and the servers were easy on the eyes.

The food was wonderful, but we hated the lighting, disliked the seating and it was loud even though there weren't many people in the restaurant.
