Sekisui offers the best sushi in town by St. Louis's very own sushi chef, Kenji Nemoto. Teriyaki, Tempura, Sashimi, Sushi, Udon, Soba and the list is never ending. Begin your dinner with Edamame, or delicious Shrimp Avocado Hand Rolls and move on to the Sashimi entrees or Udon. The restaurant also serves a wide variety of Japanese beer and sake with karaoke on weekends!
I went there with a couple of my friends. We chose various items on the sushi menu. We were offered salad and miso while we waited. Both were very good. I had never had miso before and so when they told me it was tofu, I was a little surprised. LOL. Anyways the waiter came back 3 times because the choices we made they didn't have in stock. Like the blue fin for example. So we chose the yellow tail, baby scalllops so we chose scallops etc. Other than that we sat and talked and ate our soup and salad. The food arrived and wow it was excellent. Both my friends were sushi lovers and enjoyed the food very much. Me, I'm just a beginner because I had chosen the california roll and the spicy tuna roll. They had chosen some sashimi items also. I got to taste all the items and they were all very good. I especially liked the scallops. My one friend wanted me to add that the food was not fishy smelling, so I guess that's a plus. Anyways I enjoyed the meal very much and I would go there again.
The food was decent enough. Atmosphere was a little tacky (they have two huge tvs mounted to the wall, not very classy). Service was average. Serving size was big, however when I asked for a box, the waiter just tossed my food. Not a huge deal, but basically I paid $20 for 1/2 the plate. Not cool. There was really nothing memorable about this place so I'm certain I won't be going back.
Not like usual Japanese restaurant, Sekisui is a fashionable and stylish sushi bar and restaurant. Not like non-Japanese-owned Japanese restaurants, they know what they are doing. They offer creative dishes as well as traditional Japanese cusine. I think their quality of sushi is the best in the area. Recommended for inviting your important business partners.
Much improved from a year ago, Sekisui, on south grand, offers not only pleasant staff but also tasty dishes. The wide variety of authentic Japanese cuisine and Anglo-Japanese concoctions will require the casual diner to take some time to carefully consider the options. Sekisui also tends to offer larger portions (entrees, not appetizers) than most Japanese restaurants. The atmosophere is fine for groups, and casual dining, but lacks the intimacy for those special occaisions that call for raw fish.
Located on the north end of the South Grand Strip, patrons are greeted by a large fountain of tumbling water near the entrance. My eight-year-old daughter and I popped sashimi and rolls like candy. The menu also offers lots of non-raw-fish Japanese dishes, and presentation is artful. Great drink offerings - decent saki list. It is popular, so the service was slow. Go with someone with whom you want to spend plenty of time and $30 - $60 per person.
