Kemuri always delights. Delicious!
We love Kemuri and previously have had only good experiences, but our last visit was lacking. The robata tent loin was overdone and cappuccino dessert mousse was gritty. The sushi was excellent.
My only complaint was the music was a little to loud. The food was excellent, our server was prompt and polite. Would definitely go again.
Nicole, Thanks for taking the time to write about your dining experience at Kemuri. Glad we hit it on the food and service end. I do apologize about the sound level during your visit. We look forward to serving you again soon. Dave GM

We had a great time at Kemuri! The food was outstanding, really flavorful! Excellent service and warm, beautiful decor. We'll be back!
LuLu sounds like you had "The Kemuri Experience" thanks for the review. Dave GM
Had a great evening there - Nate took great care of us. Food is exceptional - I like my martinis a bit less watered, but otherwise good.
Awesome food! Will be back
We weren’t expecting to be totally blown away by a sushi restaurant in Arkansas, but wow were we ever. I felt a little out of place when we walked into the restaurant, everyone was dressed nicely for the holidays and my wife and I were wearing light-up Christmas sweaters. We’re definitely those people. One look at the menu and I knew we were in for a treat! We ordered the calamari for an appetizer; if there is calamari on the menu, my wife and I are ordering it. I can confidently say we’ve had calamari at over a hundred different restaurants, and The Kemuri calamari was easily in the top 3. Lightly breaded calamari steaks cooked to perfection with a great mango chili dipping sauce. If you’re a calamari fan, this is your jam. For dinner we ordered scallop nigiri (hotategai), octopus nigiri (tako), the volcano roll, and the Kemuri roll. Our two favorites were the hotategai and the Kemuri roll, but all were fantastic. The presentation of the dishes was beautiful, we’re not normally the “instagram your food” type of people, but my wife felt compelled to take a picture. It was that pretty to look at. We were only in Little Rock for two nights, and we gave serious consideration to eating at Kemuri both nights it was so good.
10/10, I will send anyone I know going to Little Rock to Kemuri.
Fabulous as always!!
Go for the sushi.. Although our non-sushi dishes were o.k., they were not up to the quality we would expect. The service was good overall.
Amazing restaurant located on Kavanaugh in Little Rock
Delicious. Red snapper sushi was tough, deducted from our bill. Nice!
We absolutely LOVE this place! The food and the services was always excellent.
Third time here great, expected and got the best.
Best Eggs Benedict I’ve ever had and the Bloody Mary/Mimosa bar was the perfect accompaniment.
Anniversary dinner - just wonderful. Waiter was extraordinary - perfect timing all the way around. The cappucino cup for dessert with the anniversary message topped it off. Recommend - definitely!!
They do a great job of making sure your night is special. I’ve been there twice for my birthday and loved it each time!
Thank you for sharing your special day with us. Sounds like you had the "Kemuri Experience" . We look forward to serving you again soon.
Good food but boring atmosphere. A little expensive for the food quality.
Our first time at Kemuri was a resounding success. A long and fascinating menu with many unique and appealing dishes. We didn't have sushi but the sushi bar looks wonderful. The aquarium is a nice touch. The restaurant is airy and attractive and presentation is first class. Unusual touches included frizzled leeks, pea greens, and a menu of robata (grilled) dishes; we had and loved the eggplant. The house-made green tea cake and Loblolly ice cream is now one of my favorite desserts in Little Rock! Interesting selection of teas, you can taste a wine selection before ordering a glass, and excellent people-watching! We will be back!
Great service and great food I would highly recommend this
As always, excellent food, excellent service! Guests we took for first time enjoyed it so much they went back the next day!
Thank you for introducing us to your friends. Glad to hear that they returned so quickly. We look forward to serving you again soon. Dave GM
As per usual, everything was wonderful. Food was excellent and always love the variety on the menu.
Crave their sushi from time to time. It is the best in town!
The food was awesome and the service great. My main complaint is that we couldn’t hear each other talk over the noise of other groups. Definitely come with a lively group and don’t try to come for a quiet dinner. It’s too hard to hear one another for proper catching up.
Special rolls delicious. Cappuccino pancakes on Sunday amazing. Go!
Odd presentation. Good flavors. Enormous portions.
Great brunch menu, eggs Benedict choices are very good and plentiful. Sat outside and enjoyed the street foot traffic. Music outside was a bit loud at times, but not continually. Great, attentive server. We’ll be back.
Outstanding sushi - incredibly fresh, beautifully arranged and best sushi I’ve had anywhere!!
First time two week ago. Yesterday took friends visiting from Atlanta and the really enjoyed food.
We had a great experience at Kemuri. The ambiance was nice, the service was good, the menu choices were interesting with something for everyone and the food was perfect from starters to dessert. This place is a new favorite.
Thank you for recently visiting our restaurant. Sounds like you got the "Kemuri Experience". We look forward to serving you again soon. Dave GM
What a gem in Little Rock. Fantastic sushi and sashimi.
Nice, quaint atmosphere and the food was excellent.
Andrew was our outstanding waiter. Food was wonderful. Tried many things. Will be back!
Best sushi in Little Rock. Service was a little slow tonight but it is a Friday and this is unusual for them.
My son really enjoyed his Birthday dinner!
And I did too!!! Thank You!!!
The BEST sushi ever. Would highly recommend this to place. My family love the BRUNCH. My husband and I spend our date night here at least twice a month. The food is always too beautiful to eat! Love love love!!
Excellent sushi! You must try the Crazy Monkey. Everything tastes so fresh with a very nice presentation. A little on the noisy side but regardless, an excellent dining experience!!
Delicious food ... really enjoyed that. Next-door table extremely loud 😕😲
Our favorite sushi restaurant - and the diver’s scallops are always delicious and perfectly cooked. You can’t go wrong with calamari to start things off, and the seaweed salad is a tasty starter or side dish....but the rolls, oh, the rolls! The Mason is always a favorite for us.
