At Sekisui Midtown, sushi chefs don't just push the envelope; they put the envelope through the paper shredder. Chefs are encouraged to show off their creativity and listen to customer’s ideas, creating sushi rolls that can’t be found anywhere else. Also, purists will be delighted with the exhaustive lineup of nigiri sushi - perfectly sliced fish atop a mound of rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar and a touch of sake. 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. Lively and noisy might not be typical descriptions of most Japanese restaurants, but the words fit Sekisui Midtown. As it is always full of familiar faces, Sekisui is a popular neighborhood hang-out.

Food was mediocre at best. Very little sushi for the price. Our server was not present most of the time and forgot drinks and sent someone else who didn’t know what she was doing to get the payment for the other half of our tab, we weren’t even sure if she was a hostess or random stranger coming to just grab our money. Haven’t been there in years but will not be returning.

We regularly dine at Sekisui Midtown with outstanding service and food. However, we were disappointed in the service and the quality of food this evening. Service was somewhat lackluster, staff were confused and the head chef and sous chef or not present this evening. This is a great restaurant and we will be back we chalk it up to being an off night.

Overall a great experience! The service was friendly, but a bit sloppy. Our table was wobbly and even when the waitress noticed she didn't offer to fix the table or move us. Of course we didn't ask her too as we just laughed about it, but she should have taken the initiative to offer. We are a laidback couple so it didn't bother us or ruin our experience at all; we had a very nice dinner! A heads-up to the restaurant to consider providing a bit more attentive service.

I had specifically asked for my rolls to be held until after I had my two appetizers. Everything came at once with a lame explanation from the server. the rolls were room temp by the time eaten. Had the pyramid and the yellow tail with jalapeño appetizers. Both were quite good.

The server seemed distracted. I asked for a fork and she tried to deliver to the ladies next to me. When she realized it was for me, she almost put it thru the hair of the lady next to me when handing it over.

We had a 6:45 reservation and did not get seated until 7:20. The hostess was not helpful and did not do anything to help our long wait. It was very upsetting. We used to be frequent dinners but I don’t think we will be back for awhile.

The place was quiet. We sat at the sushi bar. First, I need to me til that we eat here several times a month and our beer we order is NEVER come. Always like warm. The bar was nasty to lean on. We had to clean it with our cloth napkin. When we wiped it the first time, it turned out white napkin brown. Also the wines bathroom needs improvement. The sink is nasty, the was look like they have been patched several times from where different things were mounted and the removed. Also the sink looked like it was about to fall of the wall

Although normally we would order sushi, we went to Sekisui Midtown seeking tempura, because we had a favorite Japanese restaurant we loved in Antwerp, Belgium, that served the most marvelous shrimp-and-vegetable tempura we've ever had. You can order tempura, like sushi, by the piece (two pieces), and we ordered shrimp, calamari, and sweet potato. It was not the tempura of our dreams, although it was very good -- except for the calamari, which was calamari steak that kept slipping out of its crust. The cold sake was excellent (many good selections, although why you would want hot sake in Memphis in July escapes me): Sho Chiku Bai, a reliable sake made in Berkeley, CA. Our wait person was extremely efficient (she memorized our order!) and attentive without being intrusive. The small area we were seated in (left of the entrance) was snug, but if there are loud talkers, it becomes uncomfortable.

Ate here over the 4th of July weekend, my buddy was coming in later and I had time to kill. It was only me at my table, but it took the waitress over 20 minutes to get my food order. The restaurant was somewhat busy, but not to a point where one should wait that long.

Food was amazing, when it came. Very creative rolls.
