Title says it all really - Delicious sushi, very moderately priced, amazing service (english speaking), intimate setting - this place really had it all. Chefs choice was amazing, and cheap enough that you can order some extra additions without blowing out your pocket. Often you...More

Only nine seats available so reservations are essential. The sushi is remarkable, fresh, and inventive. We are at Kourin two out of our three nights in Kanazawa. By all means have the Fatty Toro. Very reasonably priced.

We stumbled upon this place and could not have been more delighted. We sat at the 'bar' and watched the chefs prepare the food. We inquired about what they could do for vegans and they were very helpful. Although the choices were limited the food...More

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.

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
