Kenichi Restaurant Review

Kenichi has remained noteworthy for many years despite all the competition in Austin for contemporary Japanese cuisine. Could it be the sleek Asian interior or the stylish crowd that keeps things hip? Certainly, it is all of the above, but mostly it's about the food. With that in mind, arrive early or reserve, because the restaurant fills up fast. As an alternative to the sultry-lit, black...

A celeb-filled, scenester sushi spot in the heart of the Warehouse District.

In Short

This was one of the first high-end sushi restaurants in Austin...period. The food is good, the ambiance is still nice, but there are better options, in my opinion. I typically come here for a cocktail and an appetizer on my way somewhere else.

Good services. Delicious food. My only complain was about the amount of the food was very little. We didnt get full. But its a nice place to celebration. A little bit pricy too. Close to 6th street. Hard to find parking. Valet parking is $10.

The atmosphere was really chill and friendly. Gary, our bartender was excellent and very knowledgeable behind the...

Take Out, Asian: Stylish and often populated with a hip crowd, Austin's Kenichi is sibling to the celebrated Aspen, Colorado, restaurant of the same name. The interior alone makes it worth a visit: expect sleek lines, black tableware, and impressive floral displays. The food is just as aesthetically pleasing, and it also tastes good, characterized by complex, multi-layered flavor combinations....
