This place was great!! I wasn't sure because the inside isn't anything special, but the miso soup and the rolls were incredible!! I really can't wait to go back.

We've tried several sushi restaurants in Livermore and this is by far the best. Fresh fish and sushi made in front of guests by friendly and talented chefs. Huge menu. Wish there was a happy hour, early dining or drink specials. FYI - closes between lunch & dinner, so if you want an early dinner or if you are getting... More

This restaurant has a big menu which is not always a good thing however this was a nice place and served very good sushi. It's expensive but the portions are large and fresh. They present the food well, have a great staff and a big variety of cooked and uncooked food.

Was very surprised about the food. Very large selection of sushi rolls. We were a group of 5 and we got a booth area. Brought out own wine with a corkage fee of $.10.00 which is ok. The bento boxes have plenty of food too. From the time we ordered, the food delivery from kitchen to table was terrific. Quick,... More

I just had dinner at this restaurant. The service was prompt. The portion sizes of sushi were on the large size. Everything tasted fine, as expected. The price was fine for the quantity and quality of the food.

Business colleagues and I ate here for lunch. We found the food to be very good and the service to be very good. The restaurant is very clean and bright. We all had bento boxes and found the food to be very tasty and good portions. We will definitely eat here again.

I have had many meals at Kawa Sushi over the past 15 years, both lunches and dinners, alone and with others. In the early days, it was the only Japanese place in town and they did a pretty good business. However, as other Japanese restaurants have open-up in town, Kawa Sushi has let their quality in both food and service... More
