Sushi bowling is the best here!

EVERYTHING IS GOOD. Try it ALL! Sit at Chef Chao's station & ask him to be inspired! You won't be disappointed! Such a nice, friendly, humble guy :)
Wash the Sushi down with a good drink.
Don't miss the Uni Alfredo Soba!!! Love the Old City Market Roll: spicy tuna, seared salmon, spicy ponzu, cilantro, green onion, fried okra, wrapped in collard green! Yummylicious :)
Try the Uni Soba! So good!!!
Say hello to Adam at UpBar! Or Peter or Ken...
Oxtail Ramen: Mushrooms, crispy tofu, Napa cabbage, ginger, grilled tomato, parmesan, and slow-cooked, fallen-off-the-bone oxtail meat. A nice melody of diverse textures and big flavors.

3 words: Black. Rice. Sushi.
Ask Peter at the bar for the Bombay sapphire with shiso and peppercorn... out of this world!
Say hello to Peter at up Bar.
Sit up by the grill and order anything from the barbecue bar, deelish!
Try the Oregon Junmai Ginjo Sake Sangria (Hum Spirits Lychee, Pineapple, Tonga Bitters, and Yuzu). You won't regret it!
Highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar. You can watch them make your rolls and they are fun to talk to. Off menu pumpkin dessert is amazing!
Star of Bombay cocktail. Do it.
They have a lot on the menu, including alligator, but all I had was sushi. It was great, though. The service is great and an interesting ambience. I'll give it four stars for the sushi.
Not a good meal. Skip this place. And I'm being super nice.
The Clifton #4 is def a winner. Gotta get the pork loin too. Be prepared to wait forever for sushi and ur orders my come out in the wrong order (apps second, main first)
Try the shrimp tempura. The best sushi they have here.
Everything is delicious. Sushi with asparagus is my favorite. Be sure you still have room for a milkshake.
Dance music meets one of a kind sushi (and dessert) you can't experience anywhere else. You can't mess this up.
The black rice sushi sampler and truffled tuna appetizer are must-haves.
Give server your card and ask him/her to bring the best BBQ and sushi on menu course by course. Best way to experience Union. Peter the bartender on 2nd floor is very friendly. Leave him a nice tip!
Go for the alligator and uni ice cream
Black rice sushi is outstanding
Get the Cold Cider Mule! Then get another! You will be happy.
