    Another fine meal at Kansaku with cousins. We drove down from Deerfield and met our cousins who drove up from Lincoln Village. Perfect middle location for both us. We love the restaurant and find it incredibly consistent in its food and service. The food came incredibly quickly after ordering it. We had several Maki rolls and one order of Salmon Teriyaki. Thanks, Kansaku! Will see you again soon!
