We had dinner here and were very impressed. The sushi was very fresh, the taste was excellent, and the creativity of the chef was unmatched. The service deserves special mention in that it was friendly, prompt and accurate. The prices were on the high side, but it was worth it. We will definitely return.

The pot stickers were very good, but the tempura shrimp and veggies were some of the best I have had in a long time. They did not have as much selection of the non-raw sushi as I would have liked, but what I had was very good. My husband eats the raw sushi and he was very happy.

Food was very good. I had lobster roll. Very good location if you're in downtown. The pace itself didn't seem spectacular to me, though.

This place is good, but there is nothing to die for here. I will go back but it is not my favorite sushi. Good atmosphere and great service.

I live in Vancouver, Canada so we have sushi places on every second block. Coming down to Austin where sushi isn't that popular we weren't sure what to expect. Piranha sushi was the closest to our hotel so we decided to pop in one night for dinner. The menu had some traditional sushi items however most of it was fancy... More

A group of us stopped her for dinner. The Sexytini was very good. Began with seaweed salad it was great. Had lots of rolls, spicy una, shrimp with eel sauce, and a few others. Sooo good. Fish was fresh tasting.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been to. The tuna carpaccio was incredible - I love when sushi chefs pair tuna with fruit! I also had the Marry Me roll which has strawberry and a kiwi-lime sauce. Unique flavors but so delicious. I will be back the next time I am in town.

I must say your get what you pay for. The prices certainly match the size sashimi you get. We were on a casual night out and this place was walking distance from our hotel. The atmosphere was easy going and not too loud. We always prefer to sit at the sushi bar. ( It's like a show) Sadly, this was... More

This was my second time to PKS. I love their food. You can not go wrong. We visited the first time in July. This was the first place we went back to on this visit. It is a must when in Austin.
