Best Sushi in Town! – I am a sushi freak, I've been to every place in town and this is by far the best! The rolls are fabulous, even vegetarians will find lots to choose from. Their cucumber sunomono is the best I've ever had. Part of me doesn't want the secret to be let out about how good this place is, and another part of me wants everybody to know so they'll succeed. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. The ambiance isn't great but it's really about the food here. If you want the best fish in town, it's here!
Amazing sushi – What's in a name?! This place has awesome sushi (try their BBQ eel), great service, and I've never had to wait for a table. In the land of sushi, this place is top of the line at a reasonable price.
Awful front and logo but great and suprising sushi – If somebody hadn't told me that places has a good sushi , I never would have gone there by myself, but somebody did, my japanese quiroprator, And She was totally right. The sushy and the rest the food is good and you can find weird but delicious sushy like the godzilla...
Great sushi for lunch! – Like the other reviews, am not crazy about the name and didn't realize it had other names as well. I just called it "blowfish" since that's the pictures on the glass. Anyway, I digress. I really like this place, it's clean, fast and friendly. The unique offerings of sushi is impressive. The sushi chef is very accomodating to any new requests (a few from me..). It's basically good, fresh fish and friendly service.
BEST SUSHI EVER – i guarantee u wont find another sushi place on the west coast like this. maybe mroe expensive and authentic. but this is some inovative chow
Unique Sushi Experience – Although the name has changed repeatedly (blowfish, pufferfish, and now the horrible name: "Sushi Mania"), the menu and service have remained constant. And that is fresh and tasty. Sushi Mania has made me into an adventurous sushi eater, as everything is exceptional. The blow-blow (a tomato and tuna mix poured over a CA roll) and the sexy or pink lady (using cucumber rather than seaweed to make the roll, exceptional!) are different than anything i'd had before, and i am hooked. They also have Hot rolls (lobster or scallops over a roll) that are very rich and delicious, but more expensive.
I'm a Sushi Mania-c – Despite multiple name changes (I understand Julian Lennon's lawyers forced them to give up the name Pufferfish), this place continues to please me and my lady. Last time we went, they served us the best unagi and smoked salmon nigiri we've ever eaten. We have a few other favored sushi places around town, but we go out of our way to go back to Sushi Mania. Traditionalists may not appreciate some of the fusion ideas, but really, give it a try. Try out the garlic-seared tuna roll. It's awesome. Also, they have a rare full bar at this place, though sushi and cocktails don't always make the best combo.
Good value – this low-key neighborhood sushi spot is fast and reasonably priced. The special rolls, called "Sexy Roll" and "Pink Lady Roll" are excellent. The sushi is always fresh. Stay away from the bar drinks though, stick to sake or beer. Interior is pretty generic, not a great date spot or anything, but I love coming here for a lunch meeting or takeaway. The sushi also beats Yuki, Koji Osakaya, Sushi Cafe K, and Sushi Land, all in the neighborhood, for freshness and value.
Very creative! – My husband found this restaurant a few weeks ago. I had doubt about the flavor looking outside of the building, but I was wrong. Every dishes we ordered were very creative, beautiful and flavorful. Also, the price was cheaper than we thought. However, their services were little slow and unfriendly. We will visit the restaurant again soon.
Creative sushi and Japanese favorites are served at this small Lloyd Center District hideaway. – In Short
A hip crowd dines at this restaurant with pale-pink walls, brassy chandeliers and blaring pop radio. Traditional Pan-Asian favorites like teriyaki, pad thai and stir fries are offered, but the real draw is the inventive sushi. Combinations like the jalepeno-topped sashimi (with whitefish, ahi, salmon and seared albacore) and the Pizza Mania appetizer--nori, spicy tuna and mozzarella--showcase the chefs' creativity. For carb watchers, the rice-free Sexy Roll wraps crab and salmon in cucumber.
