Sushi & Bento ★★

Price: Under $20

I was actually heading towards another sushi restaurant I planned to visit when I ended up here. Walked by and just decided to try this place since it was more convenient for the other party I was having lunch with. Truthfully, I wasn’t sure about this restaurant since there were not a lot of customers present. A couple even came in and walked out because of it.

Anyway’s, decided to stay and ordered the shrimp tempura maki (8 pcs) for around $10-11 and miso soup for $1.50. My maki was okay but the essential tempura shrimp was not up to my sushi standards. They did not use the customary breaded shrimp but just fried it with dough and left it feeling kind of soggy. The rice was also not sticky enough. The miso soup portion seemed a bit small and overly salty too. As for the rest of my party, they had the spicy salmon maki and dragon roll with avocado. Both around $10-15 each for 8 pcs without miso soup or salad included, which I think was a bit pricey. The spicy salmon was a bit overly spicy for my tastes and there was a little too much avocado on the dragon roll but overall I preferred them over my maki. The portions given were actually very filling, they make sushi so big you can barely fit it into your mouth! Haha. Still, what kind of shocked me was seeing that they charged $18-19 for a spider roll (8pcs) WITHOUT any soup or salad. If anyone tries this, please let me know if its worth it…I would expect it to be huge!

Service is nice enough so I would recommend coming here if you are in the area and want something filling. Try going for lunch (before 3pm), they have good bento deals available.

Dress code: casual, good for friends and possibly coworkers on a lunch break.
