Nice service, disappointing sushi

My wife and I enjoy sushi on a regular basis in the US. This is our first visit to the country so to be fair we didn't know what to expect from a BA sushi restaurant, however we were sad to say we were disappointed. While the service was good and friendly, the sushi selection was very limited and... read more

Supposedly Peruvian-Japanese fusion cuisine. Amazingly bad. The fusion seems to have been with the rice, which is almost inedible. Sweet sushi? Ugghhhh.

We order about 40 pieces of sushi. It took them about 20 minutes to get our order and an other 40 minutes to bring the food. We think that the salmon was a bit frozen! and the rolls were very small.

Reasonably priced. We were early diners and naturally received excellent service. Our server was extremely proud to speak proper English with us and seemed to enjoy serving us. We shared the "love" for two persons so we enjoyed a variety of freshly prepared sushi. There is a cover charge at this restaurant (note: we've found more casual eateries do not... More

I'm asked to say here 'What went wrong'. What went wrong? Just my stupidity to give this (let's not name it 'restaurant' to avoid readers confusion) a chance. How can anybody -talking about the guy running this business- not notice that what you're promoting and serving as 'sushi' is surprisingly and by far the worst fresh fish with rice and... More

Awesome food, I eat a shrimp plate cooked with a sauce of passion fruit, simple delicious. My wife eat some kind of ceviche, she didn't enjoyed it very much, but not for the quality or components of the meal, it was the first time she tried that plate, and didn't liked as she expected. The price of the plates and... More
