Sushi is one of those foods that people either love or hate. Personally, I adore it; especially when I find excellent tuna sashimi. That’s why Dan & I were so pleased when we first discovered Kaishu, a sushi and teppen-yaki restaurant. Every time we’ve been there the sushi and hot dishes have been very good. Excellent tuna. And a widely varied menu means there is a little something for everyone; even those of you who would rather eat your fish cooked.
The restaurant has two floors. The upstairs features a sushi bar as you walk in the front door and a lot of seating in dark wood. This floor is well-appointed in a fairly classic Japanese restaurant style (lots of reds, rice paper panels, and fans). Additional seating is available downstairs and is less attractive, but we’ve never seen the restaurant full so it is unlikely you’ll be seated there. The waitresses wear kimonos, creating a pleasant dining environment.
In addition to their a la carte selection, Kaishu has several special menus. Our favorite is, of course, the All-You-Can-Eat. For 23-25 euros per person you can order anything you want off of a special menu for two solid hours. All they ask is that you eat everything you order. The same menu is available for lunch between 1pm and 4 pm for 16,50 euros.
Other special menus are:
Kaishu is open 7 days a week. Lunch is served from 1 to 4 pm and dinner from 4 to 11:30 pm.
