    We waited a little bit when we first got there, but it was worth it! The service was speedy once we were seated. A server said people had been eating, then sitting for a long time, hence the wait.

    If you like lemon, order the Hadouken! Deliciously zesty with sweet fish!

    Check out the monthly specials! Plus this is a great place if you have a group of people! They as do take out if you are in a hurry.

    If you like octopus try the Takoyaki! They are a tasty fried rice ball with pieces of octopus! A traditional Japanese treat🙏😊🙆

    Not my style and or taste for sushi. Won't be back here again unless it's for sake bombs! Sake and Sapporo reasonably priced. 🍶

    Great food but the longest wait. So frustrating!

    Good deals & value. Try to beat the weekday lunch crowd by arriving a little before 12PM.

    Daniel Geddis · January 24, 2014
  • Merwin 💞 V.

    If you have to wait longer than 10-15 minutes, order to go!!

    Long wait and we arrived long after the lunch hour.

    slow service but the food is good and cheap! i liked the sushi Deli in Downtown better!! ;)

    Bring coins with you if you plan to dine here during the day before 6pm. Most parking near the area is metered parking, and the patrol people very diligent. 25¢ = 12 minutes.

    They have expanded their space a few months back. Very nice! Worth the revisit if it's been a while.

    The waiters are not retarted. The sushi is as good as you are going to get for the price. The waiters do the best they csn to accommodate. I am thankful we have someplace like sushi deli.

    Lydia Butynski · September 19, 2013
  • Veronica A.

    Good for getting drunk during happy hour, if you can stand the wait. Decent rolls, not for the sushi connoisseur as it's a little lower grade, but certainly a step up from the grocery store.

    Veronica Arvizu · August 20, 2013

    Bud light drafts now $1.99, but still worth every penny!

    Everything is bomb here

    Send someone to wait for your table whilst you find a parking space

    Soft shell crab the BOMB!

    Great prices!

  • Oana M.

    We waited over an hour and when we were seated at 8:45 we were told this was the last call for food. Ouch. There are still a lot of people waiting and I wonder if they will get to eat.

  • @JaumePrimero

    This sushi joint is tasty. I ordered the 4 x 4, also recommend the hot hot shauna and the ninja roll. Very reasonably priced! Tip: get the carafe of plum wine.

    Friday happy hour 3-5 = best. See their site for the deets

    The service actually sucks here (long wait times, food often sits out on counter way too long). But the sushi is cheap and delicious. Plus Shock Top is on tap.

    Great prices for sushi

    Been coming here on and off the last 6-7 years or so and their raw fish has never been fresh! Cheap prices though, definitely not a place for sushi snobs

    Roger · April 3, 2012
  • Jon B.

    Shrimp lovers perfect combo: Navavava Roll & Shrimp Killer Roll. Get a side of spicy mayo and teriyaki sauce to top it all off! Mmmmm.

    Jon Blaj · April 1, 2012
  • Justin O.

    Really really slow. But cheap and good so u choose the trade off

    Justin Odisho · March 25, 2012

    Get the monthly sushi's the bomb!

    Robert Moreno · March 8, 2012
  • Nina T.

    They don't give you seaweed paper here. Even if you want to pay for it. Um, okay?

    Nina Tran · March 4, 2012
