Excellent Sushi & Service! – My boyfriend and I typically go to a few other popular sushi restaurants but decided to branch out and try some other places closer to where we moved. We first tried OH Sushi but when we walked in no one looked at us and we received terrible service so we left and on our way passed Tokyo Sushi...I was pretty skeptical when I saw it and walked in but we were greeted with a huge smile and friendly welcome. I was overly impressed by the sushi...its very fresh and very good! Our favorites are: the Mars Roll, Mt. Rock, The Tokyo Big Roll, & Funky Vegas. Even better...weekdays these are 3 for $25 or there are others for 3 for $18. I think that the service is great...the main waitress is very friendly. Service can be slow if its busy because it is completely run by the family. The father (&son) roll the sushi and the daughter is the main waitress..sometimes the mother helps (she's kind of quiet)
To show how much we love this place...we first came here a month ago and have been back 5x since! Valentine's Day was the only time that the service was slow.
Excellent Sushi; Mediocre Service; Low Prices – This small, family owned sushi joint focuses mostly on rolls and sashimi, in what appears to be an old Arby's or something along those lines, is on the busy corner of 7th East and 33rd South, and is easy to miss, but regrettable if you do.
The lack of funding on decorations if the first not-so-great impression you get when you walk in. Then, it may take a minute or five before you get seated, but don't worry, you can grab your own menu--they're within reach. The next surprise is a great one--the low prices are a wonderful. Based on the lack of decor and the dubious service, you may wonder if you really can order that extra roll or two for the money you will be saving by eating here. THE ANSWER IS YES YES YES!
The menu is roll and sashimi focused, but there are the standard teriyaki chicken, fried shrimp, sweet and sour soup, etc., but really, this is a sushi restaurant. There is also a small selection of items for children. Although the prices may be lower, don’t let that scare you way. The food here is amazing, but the quality is what keeps you coming back for more and more. I love Mars Roll and the Funky Charlie Roll, extra Wasabi, hold the Ginger. The young lady at the front knows my name, phone number, voice, and what has been going on in my life, where I’ve been traveling, and who I’ve been hanging out with for the past couple years—not because she asks, but because I am in there so often with friends or family. See if you can fool her—call and ask for a Funky Charley and a Mars Roll, extra wasabi, no ginger, and I’ll bet you she’ll catch on even before she picks up the phone to take your order (yes, take out is available, but alas, delivery is not). I give this place two copyrighted digits up!
Excellant Sushi – This is our favorite restaurant. My husband & I come here often. The only time it's been busy was Valentines Day. It is a family business & we see the same people everytime.
I especially like the Wasabi roll. We also like the Rainbow roll, sashmi, meso soup, and any tempura. We try something diferent each time.
Only one time have we questioned the bill. But the service is good & the food is excellent!
The owner is rude and the service was bad – I went with a group of friends and we were the only ones in the restaurant but the owner gave us an attitude like she didn't want us there in the first place, it seem like we were wasting her time or something. She sat us down and told us we had to order and get our food before our other friends came, we thought it was really ridiculous. The waitress was really nice but the whole time the owner was giving us dirty looks. The sushi was okay some of it tasted really old and not fresh fish. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!!
