Sushi Art. Kenichi is like no other sushi restuarant. The style and presentation of each dishes are out of this world. Cheif Garee create each dishes as a piece of art within itself. The sashimi are very high quality. Would recommend this to anyone.
Yuk! sushi was ok, but service was sour!. I have been a fan of kenichi in the past, but I think they chased me off last week. After it took 35min just to get our sushi I ask polity for the manager. The manager at first was polite but turned very stand offish towards my friend when we asked why our sushi was taking so long. I have never been more insulted. Our sever rarely checked on us. It's sad that this was the place I asked my wife to marry me and now I cring just knowing how low respect they have for regulars,
One of the "Worst" Sushi Restaurants in Dallas. Went to Kenichi yesterday and ordered a Spicy Tuna roll, when I got it I've never seen a tuna roll with so much rice, sauce, and no tuna. I asked the waiter is this how the tuna rolls are here and he just brought me another one with more sauce. But again i couldn't believe this place cost so much and looks so nice that the food is that cheap and bad!
Love this place! my favorite sushi restaurant!
I have eaten here a few times, and have always had the best service, great decor, ambiance and of course the DELICIOUS food!
This place is a great for romantic dining!!
Do not miss out for the green tea mojito- one of my favorite drink!! you won't regret!!
Can't handle new experiences?. Here is your 'other review'..This is a great place...ignore the reviews by "market people." If you want exceptional sushi then expect to pay for it. This restaurant has a great upbeat atmosphere that of course would be overbearing for someone coming from a place where crawfish is "sushi." The staff is great at what they do and very welcoming throughout. The barteneders have from what I understand been in the industry longer than some people have been coming to Dallas. I understand it is hard to enjoy a place if you are not ready for a breath taking ambiance/sensory overload. If this is the case then buy sushi from Kroger and eat it on your couch in your own comfort zone. If you want an entertaining place to enjoy top quality food and service go to Kenichi, you will not be dissapointed.
Not so "Special". My husband and I have visited the Dallas area for the past two years. We come from Baton Rouge to go to market several times throughout a year. Sushi is by far our favorite food. We have ate at other restaurants for the past 2 years and wanted to try something new. Kenichi popped up as the audience favorite. WOW It had to be the loudest restaurant I'd ever been too. We ordered all specialty rolls. The rolls were outragously priced considering the amount given and the were not so "special" to us. The rolls were very small. I think we had a $20 roll and got 5 pieces. Did i mention small pieces? My husband and I spend a min. of $100 each sushi meal. I must have to say that was the most wasted $150 I've ever spent. I had to send my dirty martini back two times - it's not hard to make an Abolute Vodka dirty martini, is it??? I think someone needs to write another review.
Favorite New Restaurant!. Being new to Dallas I've been a huge fan of citysearch in helping me find the new hot spots. After reading Kenichi reviews I decided I would try it out last night with my wife for a nice dinner out. The hostesses at the door were very accomodating and seated us at a curtained booth next to the sushi bar, a great start to our meal. The waiter was very courteous and actually offered to create a menu for us (even making sure it fit in to our dietary and allergy needs!) Tried a couple sushi rolls, Blake roll was a favorite along with the Morgan Mania roll, and the seabass entree was awesome! Josh, the manager, was even nice enough to come by our table and welcome us to the restaurant after hearing it was our first time here. After sampling several other sushi restaurants in Dallas, Kenichi surpassed all of our expectations! Some of the best sushi I've had in awhile and the staff treated us like family! After dinner we headed to the lounge for a drink and the bar was packed (I had forgotten the Mavs had played earlier)...a little loud for our taste, but a great place overall.
Awesome!. Hosted a bachelorette party for a friend this past weekend in the lounge upstairs and had such a great time! The event coordinator was so sweet and made sure to accomodate all of our needs, she even met with us before hand so we could check out the space and help us put together a menu. I had heard mixed reviews about Kenichi but was really impressed with the service and time that was put towards our group. Great service AND food....not to mention a fun DJ. Great place to host a party, we will all definitely be back!
Best Sushi in Dallas. I went to Kenichi last week before the Mavs game and it was awesome. The girls at the hostess stand were very friendly and inviting and even though we didnt make reservations, they said it was no problem to get us seated. My waiter was very attentive and helpful in going over the menu with us, since it was our first time there, and the food was amazing, I had Dynamite Shrimp, a Blake Roll and Black Cod. We came back for drinks after the game and discovered that they have a special Happy Hour Menu for before and after the game. I definitely plan on going back very soon!
Not a Good Value For Price. One of the things that makes me very angry is finding out a restaurant is out of an entree AFTER I've ordered it. Especially after I spent over 10 minutes looking at the menu in full view of the waiter. This is what happened on my first visit recently. Then I tried to order a glass of one of the premium sakes. They were out of this too, but didn't tell me until after I placed my order. For the outrageous cost and small portions, I expected better communication between the kitchen and wait staff to the diner before my order was placed. Finally I settled on a filet steak with sauce and a side dish. In usual Japanese style, my companion's pork loin was carefully sliced, arranged on the plate, and the sauce pleasingly applied. My filet arrived unsliced and unceremoniously plopped on the plate with the sauce in a small dish next to it. My side dish of agedashi tofu arrived before the entree and was undercooked and cold. (The waiter also didn't know that "agedashi" was the correct Japanese term for the tempura tofu.) The wait captain did indicate that the small carafe of second rate hot sake I ordered would be on the house. How nice of them to offer what I ordered as an alternative instead of something equivalent to what I originally wanted. If you plan to attend an event at the American Airlines Center, I recommend selecting another place for dinner beforehand. There are plenty of other good unpretentious restaurants that are a better value.
