We had the sushi menu here which consisted of nine chef-made sushi's and came down to about a hundred dollars per person. We have had quite a few kaiseki-style/related dinners before and wouldn't rate this one particularly impressive. The chef was very charming, the sushi good, the ambiance nice (a little austere, as it goes) but it did not add up to a particularly memorable experience. We had a sushi lunch at Omicho Market the next day and actually thought the sushi was better tasting there. Also instead of the little over two hundred dollars at Bankei we paid about thirty-five for two at the market :)

I wouldn't call this restaurant inexpensive - a very modest dinner for two with only one drink each was $73 but the food was superb and the service exceptionally attentive. I had the sashimi and it was so fresh and so delicious. Leaving tomorrow but would go again.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here. Very nice atmosphere, and great decor. Very near the station, and if you are staying in the area, a great choice for an inexpensive evening.
