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.

The service wasn’t as good as normal. It took a long time to get our drinks and me and one other person didn’t get out food until 10 minutes after everyone else got theirs. No explanation as to why our food was late and no apology.

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.

We love this place! The Sushi can't be beat. They have the usual rolls one expects, plus lots of great specialty rolls. And, they're happy to customize anything one dreams up.
The service is top notch, we are treated like family. We couldn't ask for anything better.

My only major complaint was with the wait time. I've been here many times before and know that there is limited space, so I had made a reservation for 2 for 7:00 PM this time. We got there right on time, and they did not have a table ready for us. We ended up waiting about 10-15 minutes for a table. It may have just been an off night, and I would still go back, it was just a little disappointing.

Our food was not up to par of what it usually is. The vegetables for the salmon teriyaki were terrible. The salmon and rice were OK. The miso and clear soup are not as good as they used to be. The salad was good however. If we did not have a buy one, get one, I would have been very upset that we paid for a full meal. Very disappointing.

Gnats, gnats, and more gnats. It's hard to enjoy a dinner when your table is swarmed with gnats. I'm very surprised I didn't see this in anyone's review when I reserved on Open Table. My suggestion is that you find another place for dinner.

Amazing is all I can say!
You have to be a sushi lover to come here!
Elizabeth is who we always ask for! She is an amazing server and if you become a regular (which I am sure you will)
She will become more than a server.
She has become like a friend to the family!!
