Sushi Uni

Reviewed By Jo-AnnKYTan

Freshly made when you order. We had a fun time trying to decide on flavors that we wanted. Their sushi rolls have fun names! Also, their sashimi is very fresh. Service was a little slow when there is a crowd. Just be patient and you will enjoy the sushie eventually. Crispy crab rangoons were served as appetizers.

Lenexa Public Market

Reviewed By Julie-Ann D

The Lenexa Community Center is in the midst of a building boom. I'm excited about having more restaurants and shops on this side of town. It's also the future site of the Lenexa Public Library.The Public Market is located just below the City Hall. Getting to it from the parking garage without taking steps is a little tricky.I had heard about this place from a couple people and decided to try it out. The atmosphere was good, but the Public Market in itself appears to be in the early stages of something good. There are a few eating places: Topp'd (pizza, salad and grinders), Madman's (BBQ, Chili Dogs, tacos and the most important--Nitrogen frozen ice cream), Chewology (dumplings, noodles rice), The Roasterie Café and a couple local vendors selling tamales, baked goods and gifts.The Cons are that the place does seem to not be filling its full potential of having more vendors. Some of the food prices are higher than I would pay on a regular basis.Service at Topp'd on Sunday was a little....disinterested, shall we say?THe Pros: I love the sunny, laidback atmosphere. There are games on the tables, encouraging you to hang out while you eat or have coffee. When the weather gets warmer, the outside tables will get full use. Yes, you can get alcohol. There was a sign for a winery, but I was not sure if they were part of Chewology, or a ghost vendor. They were advertising Happy Hour, so I'm sure they exist, but I could not see them or know how to order. Nitrogen frozen ice cream is fun to watch and fast. Coffee-Nutella flavor--Yum.I fully support this new endeavor. Part of me will mourn the available space when it gets more popular. The other part wants to see more stores and to get closer to the Public Market in Philadelphia which is much bigger, but hopping with different food vendors including fresh meats and produce.What would I wish this space had more of? Can the upstairs space do cooking demos more often?More vendors: I felt a little bad for the two local outfits who did not have as fancy displays or signs. The Bakery was outshone by the baked goods display at The Roasterie.Fresh Flower/Fresh fruit market would be lovely. Maybe a Doughnut Place. A hot Dog stand (one of those rolling carts that could move and not have to have a permanent sign or corner). Maybe offer some food truck vendors a couple rotating spaces so we can have more variety--Mexican, Thai, Mediterranean, etc.Try it out. Support Lenexa!

ASA Sushi Hibachi Lounge

Reviewed By Marq R

I drive an Equinox and live in Western Shawnee. Get it? I am no snob, but have expectations. I have a lot of reviews both ways. Plenty of other places to spend you money on better food and service.!!! Why? I often rely on YELP to find new places. This was one. We went on a Friday night. Was not busy. Ordered a drink and a bottle of wine. 20 minutes. Asked for dinner drinks a couple times. Ordered a roll. 40 minutes. Seriously. Ordered a Shared a hibachi plate 30 minutes after sushi order. You guessed it soup and salad arrived before sushi. Told the one of freakin" many terrible servers what was going on...no one cared. Told them to delay the food...no way...cold food. Could you add any more salt to the edemabe? White tuna was very marginal and questioning it was even that. Chicken teriacki was average. Get me out of here ...some of the reasons they gave... They only have one sushi chef, they are short a server, etc. it's ok to communicate between servers. this place won't be around much longer. Spend you money elsewhere. We like Stix. Western Shawnee.

The Sushi here is excellent. Very fresh. Been coming here for years and haven't been disappointed. Saki (Salmon) is best around. Maguro (Tuna) and Unagi (Eel) are very good as well . Occasionally they have Fatty Tuna which is a treat. Portion sizes are the best I've found on the Kansas side,. You'll enjoy.
