    The Pixie roll is incredible. Between the salmon and mango, it tastes like a dessert roll.

    If the server looks at your sushi order and then worriedly asks if you'd like some more, order more.

    Spicy scallop roll = to die for. Harvest roll, plum & shiso roll, and vegetable tempura are pretty amazing as well. Come to think of it, I've never had anything here that wasn't really tasty.

    The Suki Yaki is delicious if you're not looking for a whole meal of sushi. Also, try the sweet potato roll with spicy mayo and the asparagus roll--best veggie sushi options anywhere!

    Best sushi in Columbus. Spicy Scallop roll is overrated, but the Green Hornet, Dragon, and Rainbow Rolls are incredible.

    This is a great, more traditional sushi spot. All the authentic stuff is spot-on, but don't miss the Buckeye Roll (sweet potato tempura, cream cheese and eel.)
