Getting a seat at the sushi bar can be tough, especially at peak hours, but that should not deter diners from going to the restaurant. Even if you aren’t going to get the show at the sushi bar, the rest of the restaurant and bar area is a perfect place to accommodate any fresh fish itch you need scratched.
Besides, if diners sit in the restaurant they will have access to the full menu, which consists of Japanese entrees such as beef and shrimp teriyaki, tempura and combination boats.
My objective, though, was sushi, and from previous visits, I knew I was not going to be disappointed.
The spicy tuna roll is one of the best I have ever had. That is my first order whenever I go there. It is eight pieces of cut roll for $4.25 and not only is it one of the best items they serve, but it’s the best priced.
The generous pieces of tuna are spicier than most places, where the tuna often seems bland. This roll will get your attention and as your nose runs and eyes tear a bit you will wonder why you paid double at other places for a roll that is not nearly as good.
The cuts of fish for the sushi and sashimi are very generous, and I make a point of getting at least two of them whenever I visit.
This visit I ordered yellowtail and salmon sushi.
The sushi is two pieces for $3.30 and they are bigger cuts than most places. The yellowtail was nearly two inches long and a half-inch wide. It was a two-biter, which surprised me because I often can take a piece in one. The quality was excellent, fresh and smooth, there wasn’t a hint of it being chewy.
