Grabbed some delivery from them for a Saturday night snack at our hotel. Squid teriyaki, salad, miso soup, two rolls and squid nigiri. Only thing of a dubious nature was the ginger salad dressing, which was in orange clumps. Everything else was good for being...More

The salad dressing is AMAZING and I would come here just for that. But our tempura was just okay - seems to be Americanized and not really authentic Japanese. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired. TV, rock music, didn't feel like a Japanese restaurant.

We were literally the only customers the entire time we were in the restaurant. The sushi was decent - nothing to write home about or complain about, except that my wife's roll, which did say it was spicy on the menu, was so hot she...More

Tired of fried food, gumbos, jambalayas... we found refuge at this small japanese restaurant. Excellent, swift service (Tiffany being our server): excellent two seared tuna salads (some grenery, finally!!!). We love the French Quarter... and so we plan to most certainly return to this nice...More

Non pretentious atmosphere with really good sushi and a pretty decent saki selection. Every time I'm in NOLA my first dinner is here. More than reasonable prices. Server is always polite and sitting at the sushi bar means my hubby has someone to talk basketball...More

This is a nice, small restaurant on Decatur Street that has really fresh sashimi and sushi. If you need a break from all of the Creole food in New Orleans, but still want fish, this is the place.

Ate here on a Wednesday night of a business trip. Service was friendly, but SLOW. There was only one other table with guests and the employees were more interested in their cell phones and chatting. We regularly had to motion to them for service, drink...More

We were leaving an old bookstore when all of a sudden a cold front blew in & blew us across the street into the doors of the best little Japanese restaurant on Decatur Street in New Orleans, Sekisui Samurai. Don't get me wrong, we ate...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
