Best sushi in Birmingham – My girlfriend and i live downtown so we normally go to Surin and occasionally the Sekisui in Five Points to have sushi. After eating at the Sekisui in Vestavia, we'll probably only go there for sushi from now on. It was the best sushi we've had in Birmingham. The server was excellent. He either genuinely enjoys his job, was having a good day, or he's a great actor. We also went there with a coupon from Restaurant dot com and we had not problem using it. The atmosphere was great too. I can't think of a single negative comment to say about our dining experience there. We loved it, and we'll definitely be back!
Mediocre food, inflated prices and LOUSY service - Buyer beware – We had a gift certificate for this restaurant so we decided to go this evening for a Mother's Day celebration.
Before I begin, let me preface by saying that the restaurant was not busy, we were one of maybe 10 tables occupied, most of which were parties of 2-3 persons, and there were maybe 4 people at the
The food was mediocre, the prices seemed inflated for the quality and preparation and then there was the service - or the absence of service I should say!
The server had a look that was a cross between someone who hated people and that of someone who was continuously sucking on a lemon, which was only matched by his complete lack of personality. He didn't smile at all and several times asked a question and then walked off without waiting for an answer.
We waited 5 minutes before he came to the table to take drink orders. He second guessed our entire order, as though he assumed we knew nothing about food or what or how much we wanted. The server brought us the salad that came with the dinner and the miso soup. The soup was weak and the tofu tasted like it had been tossed in literally just before service. When we finished, he brought us some tempura we had ordered, and while we were working on that, he brought out our daughter's dinner and then NOTHING for 25 minutes! So our daughter was completely through with her meal and unoccupied when we finally did receive our plates. Add this to the fact that our sushi didn't arrive until half way through our dinner plates, which to me suggests that either the server did not know the abilities of the back chefs and the sushi chefs OR there is no sense of timing, in either event it just added to the lousy service. The final straw was waiting 10 minutes to get the check and then having 18% gratuity automatically added to the check. WHAT A JOKE!
A word to the wise, this is NOT the place to enjoy great food. If I could give this place zero out of five I would!
Best Sushi in two years! – I first tried sushi 2 years ago. Since then I have had some good sushi and some bad sushi. Sekisui is the best sushi I have ever had, and the atmosphere is nice as well. My husband is a picky eater and does not eat sushi, but he found the food on the menu very good. Also, the house sake was very good in my opinion. I just wish I had room to try the green tea ice cream. Highly reccomend this place!
Editorial Review – Sushi bar and restaurant serves up lunch combinations, a large selection of sushi rolls, noodle dishes, Japanese entrees and more.
Best sushi in B'ham! – This is by far the best sushi in Birmingham. And ususally not too long of a wait. Atmosphere is ok, but the food makes it all worth it!
