Disappointed, but not disgusted – Having recently moved into the neighborhood, my husband and I tried Iron Chef Sushi for our anniversary, hoping to find a new regular spot for sushi.
We were disappointed, though not entirely. Happy hour sushi rolls are incredibly inexpensive, and definitely a good value, as is the 'buy one get one free' house sake.
Unfortunately, it seemed like the oil used to fry the shrimp tempura and tempura flakes used in our rolls was burnt, as it had a very charred and bitter flavor. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rolls weren't very tight, which made them very hard to eat. The sauces and ingredients used, in general, were very good and fresh, and the black pearl roll in particular was (other than the burnt tempura flakes) delicious.
The service was...interesting. The single waitress/hostess/cashier was brusque and unfriendly to start with, though she brought everything in a timely manner and checked with us at the right times. The original plates we were given were smeared & greasy and the server glared at us when we requested clean ones. She miraculously became gregarious and chatty...right when it was time to pay the check. She did bring us a complimentary fried banana dessert to celebrate our anniversary, which was very cool.
In general...we will try other sushi restaurants in the area before returning, but haven't written Iron Chef Sushi off entirely yet - they'll get another chance before that. I hope the chef has changed his oil by then...
Poor Service – Waitress is not friendly. Service is slow in spite of the fact there are few customers.
I've introduced many new people to sushi via Iron Chef! :) – I tried Iron Chef a few years ago and it was just ok. Now with the new owners, it's awesome! I've brought quite a few new customers there because of it. Many who were scared to eat sushi before have actually become "sushi lovers" and ask me "hey, when are we going to go again?". So yes, I love this place and I'll bring more potential sushi lovers there too! ENJOY!!!
GREAT sushi on the west side – I live in the Bear Creek area, and have been wanting to try out the Iron Chef Sushi Bar for a while now, and I am glad that I did. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere there is nice and quiet, although they do have a flat screen TV behind the sushi bar which they kept the volume low. Heck, I ordered one beer when I first arrived there, and when I told them that was my first time there, they gave me a free beer with my meal! But best of all, the food was OUTSTANDING! They have a wide variety of FANTASTIC rolls to choose from, and the sashimi was VERY fresh! After my first visit, I went back 3 more times that week alone! Oh yeah, the prices were reasonable too! Go and try it for yourself, you'll be glad you did!
Great rolls! – I work out on the west side and I love Iron Chef! I try to go as often as I can. The staff is very personable and after a few times, they will know by name. I am not sure how thier "true sushi/sashimi" is, but I stick to their lunch special which is very reasonably priced and tasty. They have excellent salad dressing and the snow crab roll is delish!!
Editorial Review – Sushi and sashimi rolls are prepared to order in this fresh and crisp-looking restaurant near Bear Creek Park.
Great Sushi – Wonder atmosphere, clean classy and simple. Fast service when you order, wonderful fresh sushi that I highly recommend even newbies who may have never eaten sushi before.
We know freshness and this wasn't it! – My husband and I LOVE sushi... we've been pretty much everywhere... we were driving by adn decided to try it... it was awful... his tuna sushi was light pink, not bright at all... and even the ginger was almost white. we had to keep asking our waitress to refill our waters... on the plus side, its very beautiful and quiet. MY husband kept complaining that it was too hot, but i get cold easily and it was perfect for me. they also have some very interesting signature rolls, that's always refreshing!
Finally great sushi on w. side! – I hope this place does well. Sushi very fresh..staff very friendly...highly recommend this place.
