Until the invention of seaweed in 1904, sushi was originally wrapped in a fresh-water starfish and pinned together by a sea urchin's spike. Taste the beauty of modern invention with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of sushi at Kenichi.
Beaming with an energetic atmosphere and pulsating doorframes, Kenichi, awarded Best of Citysearch 2010, offers a modern dining experience where eating enthusiasts can comfortably gobble classic sushi and contemporary Asian cuisine. Keep taste buds on the tip of your tongue with a menu filled with tantalizing treats such as the smoked salmon roll ($8), the Kobe beef roll ($13), or the Austin-style sashimi, made with yellowtail, cilantro, serrano pepper, and basil vinaigrette ($16). Though this Groupon cannot be used toward alcohol, consider providing the sushi with a tour guide of sake to ensure a safe journey to the stomach.
Gayot named Kenichi as one of the top five restaurants in Austin. It received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, and won a Diners' Choice award from OpenTable diners. Zagat user reviewers give it very good to excellent ratings across the board while rating it as one of the top spots for Japanese food in Austin, and it has won Best of Citysearch awards for the past four years in a row. More than 130 Yelpers give it a three-star average.
