KA Sushi in Houston provides a unique experience when it comes to sushi and Asian fusion, with menu options that won’t be found elsewhere. For example, chocolate shrimp is an interesting option with white chocolate, leche and lime zest. Be sure to check out the nigiri/sashimi selection menu items as well including the foie gras + quail egg and seared escolar.

The specialty rolls and classic rolls section of the menu at KA Sushi is quite comprehensive as well with interesting names such as wagyu slim and captain crunch. Presentations are artful and creative. Finish off the experience with the KA Sushi gome spice pan or your favorite flavor mochi.

    The fish quality was poor. Grilled octopus and shrimp tempura were bland. Wasabi is $6 extra, not even a little smear under the fish, when relevant. Sushi rice was not added with rice vinegar, at least not in proportions which can be tasted. The soy sauce was also surprisingly tasteless. A depressing experience despite a very caring waitress.

    We loved the food at KA. The service was very slow but our orders were correct and the quality of the sushi/nigiri was the best we’ve had in Houston. Highly recommend the Wagu nigiri - it’s to die for!!

    We made reservations. Once we were seated we were told they had a 90 minute limit on staying on Fridays and Saturdays. The service was very slow to start. The food was great and came out as it was ready.

    The service at Ka was insanely fast, maybe a little too fast. I dont eat fish but wanted to be apart of the sushi experience and Ka had multiple non fish and vegetarian sushi options!!! Decently priced and very good dessert, I got the strawberry mochi

    Good food, very good service. Sat outside on a cool night and the heaters worked fine. Spicy edamame = very good, shishito pepper = OK, rolls = very good, nigiri = very good; drinks = very good. Nigiri and drinks a bit over priced.

    We went for an early valentine dinner and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was simply AMAZING! The drinks were SPECTACULAR! The entire staff was super friendly. We had a GREAT time and didn't have to break the bank doing so. Everything was moderately priced. It was so much fun!

    No longer offer gluten free menus. Rudely told there is a two hour dining limit upon arrival - totally ok with the limit but how you say something matters. Only offer gluten free soy sauce in cheap takeout packets now and have decided to make their sauces non-gluten free limiting options that have always been available. Why would you make your food less accommodating for those with dietary issues? Oysters did not taste fresh, cocktails were good.

    One of the worst sushi experiences I have had in Houston. I don’t understand all the high reviews, I chose this restaurant for date night based on reviews but I was very disappointed. Fish was not fresh, basically tasteless sashimi and nigiri…. Rolls were also non impressive, left half of the order on the table.

    My son’s friend was in town. She loves sushi, so we decided to give this place a shot. The thought behind the restaurant is great, and the food seemed fresh and well prepared, but the layout of the restaurant is frustrating. Each time someone ordered a meal on hot rocks, we started looking for the fire extinguisher. It was hard to focus on conversation or dining when there is a smoke stack next to you. Either more ventilation is needed, or the restaurant needs to rethink the menu for this tiny location.

    Had a pretty good experience overall, with some slight hiccups or heartburn along the way. I'll start off by saying their prices are very reasonable, especially for their higher end nigiri options. The service was also pretty good and food came out pretty quickly, but we did have to wait a few times for refills on water (even though we sat at the bar). For starters, the shishito peppers were good, but the sauce was a little on the sweet side. If the peppers were actually kinda spicy, then it may have balanced out better. The Bone Marrow from the Specials menu was pretty solid and very flavorful. The different nigiri options we tried were all pretty good, namely the Peppercorn Tuna and Otoro. The Wagyu nigiri was very tasty, but had a lot more wasabi in the dressing than I expected (led to a startling bite for sure). The "Lil" Catch Nigiri from the Specials menu was good, but may have had too many things going on at once with all of the different flavors and textures. After seeing countless pics and mentions of the Wagyu Slim roll, we decided to try that out. It was easily the spiciest roll I've ever had! The flavors were there, but for a few pieces, it was too much to handle.
