    Sit at the bar and ask the chefs to make you there specialties that aren't on the menu!

    Don't order the bulgogi .. Ewwww. Nasty. Nerves on every single piece

    There is always a guy in the men's restroom talking on his phone from the stall. Must see.

    This place isn't the best, but it is very close to campus so sometimes convenience overrules quality. If you have more time and money, Kabuki at Tempe Marketplace is much better.

    Great happy hour hours! I love their sweet potato roll and this is the only place I know of that offers a sweet potato roll.

    Reverse happy hour starts at 9 p.m! Greeks: Great for dinner after chapter meetings on Monday nights.

    I eat here religiously! Not only is the sushi delicious and the staff friendly, but the Happy Hour deals are amazing. Make sure to go from 3-7pm or 9-11pm on weekdays to catch these specials!

    No more Monday sake bombs? I'd rather go to RA.

    Emily Brooke Robertson · November 9, 2013

    Solid sushi restaurant at University and Rural. Happy hour pricing is phenomenal making this a great place for an early dinner near campus.

    If you see a table full of cute ASU chicks, give 'me your sake.

    Just for the record I don't like sushi! But they had some non-seafood items as well! And Saki bombs!

    Darius Rucker · July 3, 2013

    The size of the sushi roll is so dissapointing for the price.

    Ana Gutierrez · June 12, 2013
  • Kelsey H.

    Golden State roll is literally the best sushi role ever. Ask for extra eel sauce!

    Kelsey Higgins · February 16, 2013
  • Stephen

    The best low key spot to get a roll and drink some saki. Never over crowded or loud for the most part. Great sushi or entre plates as well.

    Stephen · February 16, 2013
  • Hillary E.

    Happy hour 4-7pm and 9-close is the best time to go for cheap, quality sushi. Make sure to try the veggie roll, its my favorite.

    Hillary Elizabeth · February 15, 2013

    Sushi 101 is a great college town sushi restaurant! They have great service and funny shirts. Definitely try their Black and Yellow roll, it is delicious!

    Michael Iuorio · February 15, 2013
  • Jennifer H.

    Best place for Happy Hour! The prices are great, not to mention their sake bombs and their Sun Devil roll!

    Jennifer Haye · February 14, 2013
  • Annie C.

    The reverse happy hour beginning at 9 is the best thing since sliced bread. Saki bomb, golden state roll, edamame, ginger salad - all under $15!!!

    Annie Carson · February 13, 2013

    I love the reverse happy hour 4-7pm and 9-close every day! Get the Golden State Roll for only $4! SO delicious!

    They need to bring back the lobster dynamite! Otherwise it is great and they have soy paper!

    Gigi Campos · April 19, 2012
  • Christen N.

    If your looking for a good deal and better sushi other than the MU, Sushi 101 is the place to be. Happy hour is half off which makes a difference. My favorite rolls are philly and the las vegas roll!

    Christen Navarrete · March 29, 2012
  • Jeffrey T.

    Don't forget to try the ASU 101, it has a great taste and it also provides some school pride!

    Jeffrey Toomey · March 29, 2012

    Sushi 101 has not disappointed me during happy hour. I always order the Spicy Tuna Roll EVERY single time & I can not think of one time that it has been bad. The service is good & it's close to campus

    D'Andra Alexander · March 29, 2012
  • Nifes P.

    Always the best idea for late night sushi. 9-close happy hour is amazing.

    Nifes Putzo · March 29, 2012

    although i'm not a sushi person this place is amazing, me and my friends love coming here for happy hour and chatting over California rolls.

    Michael H · March 14, 2012
  • Vanessa H.

    The Shrimp Tempura is really good and they have really good crab cakes but they only come on top of their crab cake salad. It's worth it though.

    Vanessa Hodges · March 7, 2012
  • Valerie A.

    Try the roll 101 and sun devil roll! The sweet potato vegetarian roll is great too! :)

    Valerie Ahyong · February 25, 2012
  • Daehee P.

    Ask for the hamachi or salmon kama

    Daehee Park · January 28, 2012
