We will never go again. We have given
this place two tries now and both times for different reasons they failed. The first time the cook acted mad the entire time he was fixing the food. Somber and brought down the entire table. The food was over cooked and he would not pay attention to the needs of the table.
The second time we went was for my birthday party. He was horrible at every little trick he tried even dropping the toots more than once. He wouldn't let the question he asked of how old i am drop and guessed my age to be over what i am. Who does that? I told him to let it drop but like everything he did he did it badly. Put the wrong sauces on two peoples meat and was like "sorry too bad". We will never go here again. Wasted money if you ask me.
Our favorite place for sushi, tempura
and bento! We keep returning for the generously-sized sushi (wide variety including rolls and nigiri, always fresh), tasty seaweed salad, giant friendly bowls of udon soup, tempura served up hot and lightly-battered, bento platters with choices of teriyaki and other options, and a range of saki and other drinks.
Izumi has a sushi bar where you can watch the chefs, several tables surrounding teppenyaki grills for the "big noisy chef's show", and regular dining tables. Especially nice are the lovely semi-private rooms with [half-height] shoji screens (plan on taking off your shoes) — great for dates, for being able to converse easily, for families having a get-together, and for corralling [nondestructive] small children who can't sit still.
Never go back. My daughter and I go to this restaurant all the time and normally, we love it. She loves their salad and soup and the idea of taking off her shoes to dine. Our latest experience leaves us never wanting to return. I ordered steak and chicken. I was brought, steak and shrimp. I told our waitress and she told me THREE times, you ordered the shrimp - she refused to take it back to the kitchen. I was irritated, but did enjoy the steak and the rest of my meal. When it was time to bring the check, she ran my credit card, but added in her own gratuity of 25% - it was just me and my daughter. I think she was afraid I was not going to tip her, which I would never do, but I was so annoyed that she took the liberty to add in her own tip - we will NEVER return to this restaurant!
Great Japanese restaurant. We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We like to frequent Japanese restaurants. The service was good, the people are very friendly!! It has an excellent menu selection. I would highly recommend.
BECAUSE OF THE REVIEWS WE CHECKED THIS PLACE OUT AND IT WAS REALLY GREAT! THE RAINBOW ROLL WAS GREAT AND THE NIGRI WERE OF A GREAT SIZE. TREATED OURSELVES QUITE NICELY BC IT WAS A RARE OCCASION BUT WELL WORTH IT! THE WEATHER WAS COLD TODAY BUT THE BUILDING WAS SO COLD I COULDNT TAKE MY COAT OFF THAT WAS THE ONLY BAD THING.
THE WAITSTAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY ALSO!
A MUST TO TRY - WILL DEFINETLY BE BACK!
Far and Away the Best Sushi in the City. Came to this spot quite by accident on a Saturday afternoon. It's located in a quiet strip mall but it is an amazing find. The service is cordial and friendly but the best thing about this place is the sushi. We've eaten at practically EVERY sushi restaurant in the city... but the sushi here is incredible from its freshness to it's unique presentation. The sashimi choices are somewhat limited but nonetheless they are top notch (much better than the more trendy places in Leawood, the Plaza and Crown Center). As for the rolls, there are so many choices and the portions are awesome. There are plenty of cooked items. too. While the prices are up there, it's well worth it considering you'd pay about the same at the other places but the food there isn't half as amazing. We haven't tried the teppanyaki dinners because we're more into sushi... but maybe one day we'll give it a try. All in all, I highly recommend this place to any sushi lover.
