Best casual Japanese in Vallarta Nayarit area. Prices are reasonable. Sushi is good and uses fresh ingredients. Mixed tempura is a good portion with fish tempura aside from the shrimps. The Udon soup is good and flavorful with a giant shrimp tempura although it always...More

We went in a group of 9. The food was fantastic. One order was forgotten, and since sushi is typically brought out in rounds, it took a while to notice and correct. 4 kids watched the sushi chef for almost an hour, and he loved...More

This place has really good food. They do not just have sushi. They have tempora and tempenyaki both of which are excellent. Stop by. You will not be disappointed

One wouldn't expect to find delectable sushi in a mall - but Kensao hits it right on, with delicious sauces, bounteous portions, wonderful choice for every palate - and best of all, FINALLY, big chunc of yellowtail, tuna, salmon, halibut, and eel sashimi!!! LOVED it!

I think I´ve been to Kensao for over 30 times already and they´ve never disappointed me. I´ve always picked the Tomate Roll and it´s a no brainer!! Keep up the good work!!!

Kensao was recommended to us by someone from PV so we thought we'd try this place out. I'm glad we did! We only tried one roll but it was delicious! We tried the jalapeno roll that was a new item. They had so many different...More

Not your first choice if you're going to a movie. You could tell them many times you got to go catch a movie the service is terrible so she's actually pretty good but the service is the worst of Everseen in by Vallarta
