Great new sushi restaurant in uptown Dallas! – This was the old sappora sushi on Oak Lawn and I LOVE the way they have remodeled! I went in for lunch and it was buy one get one free! The staff was so friendly and nice. I loved the way they have redone the inside and how convenient it was in the middle of uptown dallas. I will be back for sure!
Train Wreck – What happened to this place? Never went that often, but when I did, I always enjoyed it. It was kinda quirky, the service was unreliable, but the food and drinks were good and always thought it was perfect for a date...
Went not too long ago with 3 friends on a week night. We walked in, hardly anyone there...we stood @ the front door and waited..and waited...and waited while one waitress stood within eyesite of us, but totally ignored us....while a waiter stood @ the bar talking to two bar patrons about what music he was going to play next.....LOUDLY over the sound system.
Finally, got sat....by the waitress that ignored us....then she walked away and proceeded to ignore us again for about 5 minutes....finally the waiter/DJ (?) came over and asked us if we'd been waited on? We said "no"...he proceeded to apologize and said "Sorry, she don't know the F*CK what she is doin'." This was the first of many times he used the F-bomb while "serving" us....
Did I mention they were playing gangster rap over the sound system? With lots of f-bombs and degrading lyrics pertaining to women.....LOUDLY.
It got to the point where I didn't even want to wait for the food...but my friends talked me into staying.
Big mistake. All of us failed to finish our sushi for various reasons but basically we all sorta agreed it wasn't as good as it use to be and I also had a side of vegetable fried rice that tasted like someone had poured an entire box of salt into the mix.
We left and 3 of the 4 of us swore we'd never go back and to my knowledge we haven't.
NOW, they've started having a "live" band on weekends and since I live across the street @ the Argyle, we're being bombarded with LOUD thumping music til @ least midnight. Apparently the Management either isn't aware there is a noise ordinance in the City of Dallas, or they just don't care....and I think the latter is the case, since apparently they don't care about who they hire, what they serve or what sort of impression they're leaving people with....from what I've heard, they're looking to attract a "hip young" crowd.....if "hip and young" also means "loud, obnoxious, lewd and of poor citizenship skills"...well, they've nailed it.
Ugh. Go away. Please.
We are under new ownership and management and changed the name to Ahi sushi. The restaurant is completely remodeled and our staff is better than what you just described... sounded like you were in an episode of the Twilight Zone. We hope that you can give the location another chance.
GREAT SUSHI! – The sushi is AMAZING here, and Sapporo is one of my favorite restaurants. Once, just walking in, the man at the bar approached me and offered me a 15% discount because I am a regular customer.
Great service, atmosphere, food.
Mainly empty, and you can choose your own table.
Well, we are back with a different name, different layout, different menu but same location on Oak lawn ave. Come try us out. Ahi Bar and Sushi near cedar springs on oak lawn. If their sushi was amazing, ours is amazinger.
Good casual place, atmosphere is lacking – The sushi here is pretty good and fairly reasonably priced. The restaurant never seems to be packed (although I've heard it is when they have karaoke). There isn't really much of a scene here, the decor is plain with white tablecloths. It is a good place to go when you are looking for something low key, don't want to dress up, or don't want to wait for a table. It is always easy to talk since it is so quiet, and I have always been happy with the food (which I was initially nervous about at Sushi Sapporo since sushi often is not fresh when a restaurant is empty).
Completely redone restaurant. Our lunch menu is affordable and catered for business types and casual types who want to eat out but are on a budget... who isn't nowadays. We've revamped our drink menu to make it accessible to the casual diner too; with drinks on the lower end of the bar price spectrum, Ahi Sushi is one place you can get a meal without breaking the bank. 2 for 1 sushi. 10 bento boxes for 9.95. daily drink specials. check out our menu and specials at ahiuptown.com
Still a great place! – So after reading a couple review of the new set up of this place I was a tad skeptical. I have been going to Sapporo weekly for over a year now and after a week long sadness of thinking the place closed down, I am happy to say that is not true. The lunch buffet or all-you-eat from the menu is still a great deal. For only 20 bucks you get to choose from all items on the previous buffet plus a lot more. You can now get edamame plus all the usual sides and now you can order any roll from there menu. I still recommend this place and will continue to go there weekly, check it out!!
No lunch buffet or all-you-can-eat sushi at Ahi Sushi here at the same location. Instead Ahi Sushi has 2 for 1 sushi for lunch plus a menu with items ranging from 3.5 to 9.5 with an extensive roll list and fresh sushi list. Our kitchen food is prepared by the owner so if you dont like sushi, try our teriyaki plates or sizzling plates of chicken or beef.
$23 for frozen vegtables – Went there for lunch today and was totally disappointed. I ordered fried rice (plain fried rice w/ no meat) and was charged $23. The vegetables in the rice were obviously from a bag of frozen veggies (who puts sweet kernal corn in fried rice). I thought lunch special usually ment cheaper than normal not more expensive. I tried to flag down a waittress so I can ask about this, but since I was alone they really didn't notice me. I had to go back to work and so I just signed the receipt and left. Funny thing is, they noticed when I left and all the staff said bye. I'm never going back there.
If today you spent $23 here at Ahi Sushi at lunch, you'd get a 4 rolls and a drink or a combination of 3-5 kitchen items. Also, Ahi Sushi does not promote fried rice because its *cough cough*, not japanese food BUT we will make it for you if you ask, just please don't spread the word too much ;)
BRING BACK THE BUFFET!! – Me and my best friend walked in today to find our beautiful SUSHI BUFFET WAS NO MO!! It's now sit down and pick out all you can eat. However thank goodness our waitress explained it, but it's only CERTAIN things on the all you can eat menu. AND it went from $15.95 to $19.95! So we order what we THINK we want and about 10 min she comes back and says we've ordered too much? We r like huh? Its all you can eat? She goes yes, but if you order, we make and you not eat, we charge you FULL price. I'm like what? I felt like the sushi natzi was standing over us thru the whole experience...and the beauty of the buffet was it was QUICK! We got there at 12:40, had to take our orders ourselves to the chefs, ask for our soup (that comes with) and it also took FOREVER!!! We got to work at 2:00! Even a guy behind us in line was complaining about how the "new" system SUCKS....takes way too long. Bring back our buffet!
Ahi Sushi does not have a buffet BuT will get you out the door in 45 minutes or less. Ahi understands that business clients come to Ahi frequently and need to get back to work. 2 for 1 sushi is still cheap in our opinion. 4 pieces instead of the usual 2 and Ahi has sushi prices that are about a dollar cheaper than competitors so you get even a better deal. Our lunch specialty roll list has 12 choices of specialty rolls all from 4.95 to our volcano roll for 9.95.
Sianara Sapporo – We used to love this place when they had the lunch buffett. It was fast, inexpensive and enjoyable. Today under new management we were highly surprised to find the buffett gone, the price increased, and we were actually told if we didn't "eat every bite on our plate" that we would be charged full price not the lunch price. Ridiculous. You felt like you were under pressure to eat everything and you would be punished if you didn't. We will not return and according to those sitting around us, neither will they. This place is about to loose 99% of its lunch crowd due to the changes. We were also 30 minutes late getting back to work because it took so long to get our order.
Ahi Sushi took over the spot under new management and ownership. Ahi Sushi hopes to see you back in here to try our new lunch menu and sushi. We know you'll not regret it.
Decent Buffet – I am only commenting on the buffet. I tried it because I have heard good things about this restaurant. I was impressed but no completely sold. As usual with most sushi places that have a buffet the items on the buffet are not the pick of the menu. There was a good variety of maybe 6-8 different roles. There was also salad, egg rolls and miso soup. However I did look at the regular menu which is extensive and impressive so I will go back to try a few things off of it. Overall the meal was good. I will definitely go back. If you try the buffet be prepared to spend 15 with tax and no drink.....
2 for 1 sushi lunch at Ahi Sushi in the same location at 3211 Oak Lawn Ave. The Sushi is amazing and the Japanese kitchen food is amazing. From our seaweed salad to our teriyaki and sizzling platters of chicken, beef, or seafood, you'll want to try everything
A gem hidden on a corner that might possibly be overlooked! – The Volcano roll here is probably the best thing I have every had anywhere! Mounds of scallops, crayfish, and crab with some hot sauce and a cream based sauce along with the roll buried underneath it all. It is *very* rich and most people can probably make a meal out of it but the sashimi and sushi rolls are excellent here as well. The staff is attentive while not being overbearing and they have a good knowledge of the different rolls and dishes offered. Check the blackboard behind the sushi bar for daily specials and infrequently offered fish that you might find alluring (including the toro (fatty tuna) which is top notch!)
At Ahi Sushi, for lunch the volcano roll is 9.95 and is almost the same as what you described. Our volcano roll has baked scallops, crawfish, crabmeat, smelt roe on top of a california roll and its Yummmmy!
