Best Sushi in Kansas City.
Sashimi that melts in your mouth. I've visited Sushi Haru once a week for the past three years. Just love this place. I will stray once in awhile, but I always come back with a better appreciation. I did notice that their prices went up recently and the portions became smaller, but I still consider it a good value for the money. I'm not sure what it is about there rice, but I just love it! Their fish taste fresh, and like I said, it just melts in your mouth.
It has a nice atmosphere, clean and bright. You can carry on a conversation with a friend. Unlike RA Sushi, which is way too LOUD for my taste. The service is always friendly. What more could you ask for?
Best Sushi in KC.
This is my new favorite sushi spot in KC! It's a hidden gem. Who would think a little restaurant next to Church's Chicken would serve the best sushi in the metro? My husband bragged and bragged about it for weeks. He finally took me and we were back again the week after!
We loved the Shaggy Dog, Love Roll, Samarai Roll, and some other roll (the name escapes my mommy-brain right now). I'm sure every roll is fabulous though. They have little bento boxes for kids, which my toddler loved.
We had the same waiter two weeks in a row and he was fabulous, knowledgeable and helpful.
It's a shame we didn't live closer because we would be here multiple times a week!
Hooray for Haru!
Favorite no more.
Sushi Haru has lost its touch. This had been OUR sushi restaurant for the past 3 years but after our visit yesterday, we will not return. This is the second visit that we were disappointed. Has it changed hands? There are certainly different people manning the sushi bar.
The service was aweful. Not only did the wait person screw up our order, but he brought the sushi and appetizers all at the same time. By the time the hot appetizers were consumed, the hand rolls were soggy and unedible. Whats worse, the young guy who was serving us kept trying to upsell us to fancy rolls that we didn't want. We have eaten at this place close to 20 times in the past 3 years and we know what we like. But even our favorites were disappointing. Even the Edemame (boiled soybeans) were cold, undercooked and the serving size was so small that it looked sad on the plate.
The basics weren't even right. The sushi rice was underseasoned and soggy/sticky, so much so that we could hardly swallow them without the lubrication of a drink. The portions of fish were also thin and smaller than their former standard. The fish tasted old. An hour after we left the restaurant, my wife was afflicted with Hiroshima's Revenge (her system is an early warning system for bad food).
Oh, and they have increased their prices. Two shrimp nigiri, one of the cheapest sushi selections, is now $5 for 2 pieces. For Kansas city, this is unreasonable.
We are both angry and sad that OUR sushi place has lost it's mojo. We will not return but will be searching for alternatives in a land where the freshest fish has whiskers and comes from "the crick".
