Try the menu of Chef's choice, you will not regret. They use the fresh sea food and fish that makes it very tasty. The chef and his wife was very welcome. The staff was so nice & helpful. I highly recommend this place.

Like most restaurants in Japan Kourin Sushi is a small place with under 20 seats so making reservations is essential. You best shot is for an early dinner at 17:30. The selection of fish varieties is pretty good but they only keep a limited supply...More

Me and my girlfriend waited 2h30 for it to open at 17.30h so that we would guarantee a spot there and it was completely worth it! The space is cozy and the staff is the nicest; we were treated as if we were friends/regular customers....More

We have had plenty of sushi before but nothing comes close to our experience at Kourin Sushi. We reserved the table via Facebook but found us hungry sooner than expected. As a couple before us had cancelled their reservation, the staffs fill us in quickly....More

This small family restaurant near the castle serves faultless sushi at keen prices. Friendly and helpful, and close to the fish market makes it an ideal lunch spot.

Stayed nearby so we popped in (as we couldn’t find Elbow Room) but we weren’t disappointed! This is a lovely little bar style place near the castle gardens which only has seating for 20 or so people. I’d recommend the 10 piece Chef’s choice sushi...More

A small cosy eatery with delicious sushi choices at very reasonable prices. It makes a handy stop-off near the two must-see sites in Kanazawa - the beautifully restored castle and unique Kenrokuen garden garden nearby.

Sure you can, just give them a call. They can handle basic English. Note that there are only about 4 tables, the rest is seats at the counter. That being said, we went without a reservation. As long as your party isn't too... More
