Superb service matched with superb food always fresh make an excellent restaurant. I love this restaurant. You can never go wrong ordering any item from their menu. Not only is the food very fresh and it is always prepared very professionally. If anyone has any questions about the food, the service people are very informative and they also have great suggestions for any occasions.
The service people are always top notch. They are always very friendly with lots of knowledge about their products. It’s always great to have a friendly smile from their service people. Compared to other restaurants, the service people here do care about their customers and the meal(s) they ordered. It is much more fun being able to go out for meal and everything goes so great, and one doesn’t really have to worry about anything at all. This restaurant is always very efficient. It is always a great feeling to have an excellent meal here.
I have been here numerous times, and I will always continue to enjoy eating here. I highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

Everything about our dinner last night was great. Our server Tat was the best! My wife raved that he was the best server we have ever had. We enjoyed being in one of the small rooms with the quieter surroundings. The sushi rolls were uniquely different from other sushi places. Thank you Sushi House for a great evening.

We are frequent guests and food and service have remained consistently excellent. Good tasting fresh sushi, excellent service and many gluten free options. As well, they will modify dishes to make them gluten fee if they can (for example California roll with real crab). Simply just a great restaurant.

Restaurant was crowded. We had to wait for our table for two, even with a reservation. Service was therefore slow. The appetizers were good. My guest was brought the dinner sushi order at least 20 minutes after I was served ... one from kitchen, one from sushi bar. We were told there were only two sushi chefs working instead of three. Therefore one entree was faster to be brought to table. (We ordered a roll to go at the conclusion of the meal, and it took only 5 minutes to prepare.)
At one point, a waiter dropped a full tray behind my chair. My coat was spattered with sticky liquid, which I didn’t notice until I put it on to leave. Our waiter tried to wipe it clean as we were exiting. Not a good solution. Fortunately, I was able to wash the coat to clean it.
As an apology for the delayed food service, we were not charged for the two glasses of $8 wine, which I appreciated. I tipped our waiter over 20% for his effort, but I don’t think we will return any time soon.

Every thing about this restaurant is spectacular. The service and the food are always as good as it can get. The service is very informative for any questions someone might have, and they have great suggestions.
I really don’t have any reason to look for another Japanese restaurant, and I’m very happy eating here. I’ve been eating here for a long time and the service treats me exceptionally. Just like a person not like a number. Because of that, I really respect them. I can tell the service does value the customers, compared to other restaurants who forget their customers. I’ve been here so long the service knows what I drink, and what appetizer I get to start with.
This place has great comradeliness and it makes the meal much enjoyable. I have, and always will, highly recommend this excellent restaurant. I know I can come here and enjoy myself without ever having to worry about anything at all.

Sushi House is hands down our favorite sushi restaurant in Kansas City. The food is always fresh and the quality is amazingly consistent. We eat there at least twice a month. They have a great staff of long term servers who really personalize the service.

Food was good. I know it was a busy Saturday night, but the waitress never asked if we wanted refills of our cocktails, never asked us if we wanted dessert.. Service could be described as overly efficient.
We were In and out in 45 minutes for dinner. We were not trying to rush we did not have to make a movie or anything.
When I made the reservation I stated it was for a birthday, we did not want any freebies, but they could’ve at least said happy birthday to my daughter.
Food was great, Service was overly efficient and sparse. I felt like get them in and get them out. I did not feel like this was appropriate for a restaurant of this caliber

We went for New Year’s Eve and had a room to ourselves. Food and drinks were great but my only complaint is not clearing the plates we were done with so we had room for the new ones coming. We were in a room so it was more difficult but we need room to enjoy it!

It was celebratory busy night, and the service was outstanding again. I planned to eat here on New Years Eve later than I usually do and apparently other people did too. It was a great time for a meal at the Sushi House, but then again it is always a great time for a meal at the Sushi House. With the other busy tables around me, all the parts of my meal arrived in good times. I never had to worry about any part of my meal because it was always fresh and delivered in a good times. Even with the busy night I really enjoyed being there that night. Busy or not busy, I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great meal with excellent service.

This is a spectacular restaurant and they excel in service. Yes, their food is excellent and it always comes with great service. Sometimes they appear to be busy, but the service uses their time efficiently for each table and listens very attentively to each person for their selections. Being able to have great service with excellent food at the same restaurant doesn’t always happen everywhere, but the Sushi House is one of the places where it does happen. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Frequent diner. Again great consistent quality. Great service. Creative rolls. Tried something new....the brown rice rolls (king brown rice?). Excellent rice and gives a delicious healthy alternative to the white rice. As I have said before they have a gluten free menu, they will modify other items (if possible) to make them gluten free and they offer Tamari.

This restaurant is an excellent place to have a great meal. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Kansas City. A restaurant could never be as great as this restaurant if the other place didn’t have the two items which are required for a successful restaurant; the two requirements are spectacular service and great tasting food. This restaurant is exceptional with those two required items.
Having both of those two items at this restaurant make eating there fun and something you don’t have to worry about. All of the service people are really great and they can always answer any questions you might have. Who wants to go out for a meal and continually worrying about your meal, or the the service? Those two items you don’t have worry about at all. Plus the service is always very cheerful and informative about the meals. Having happy people who serve you makes everything much more enjoyable.
Because this restaurant has always been great when I go there, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a spectacular meal at a restaurant that comes with equally great service.

I had another exceptional meal at this great restaurant. Everything is always done very professionally, both the terrific food and the excellent service. Everything is very freshly prepared, and it comes out in the great tasting appetizers, soups, salads and main selections.
I have never been disappointed at this restaurant. It is really great to be able to go out to a restaurant and not having to worry about any details (other than which of the selections you want) at all. The service people are really great and they are very knowledgeable about the menu. They are very helpful with any questions for anything on the menu. Sometimes the restaurant might seem busy, but with the very attentive service people everything goes so smoothly you would almost not even notice. Everything here is done professionally and very efficiently.
I always have enjoyed eating at this spectacular sushi restaurant, and I always will continue for a long time. I would highly recommend this excellent restaurant.
