if you have to have a taste of sushi

I have been to a lot of sushi restaurants so I know what to expect. There is a lot of hit and miss places. While there are only 2 in the town of Prescott your limited. Just like the other it is hit and miss here. The other place has awesome food but, poor service or down right rude. Esoji... read more

We have been here many times over the past several years and have always been pleased with the food....actually looked forward to it. We have to travel about 70 miles to get here, so we would stop in every time in the area. Well after today's lunch, we will never go back. Both my husband and I have been ill... More

Nice to have a friendly and pleasant atmosphere for sushi near downtown Prescott. One of my choices for 'first dates'!

Best sushi I've had in town! Its a little pricey, but I think its worth it. The staff is always friendly, and they have great service.

Fresh fish that's it. Service was terrible we had to ask for everything twice. The dragon roll was so big and loose impossible to eat. The nigiri was good fish was fresh but Fujiyama preps there food way better. Hopefully it was an off day for Them. Would have gone to Fujiyama but it isn't open Mondays.

Great food...excellent preparation and presentation. Wonderful service and nice atmosphere. I will eat here again and again. We have about 5 rolls and two carafes of suki plus a few extra and the price for the four of us was only $100.00. Great value.

This is a decent place in downtown Prescott. Average sushi, nothing I haven't seen anywhere else. The owner is kind. It seems like they go through staff a lot so I am not sure about consistency.

As a long time sushi lover and local of Prescott AZ, you can never go wrong ordering lunch or dinner at Esojis! Some of the best, freshest sushi in town with a prime location. The staff is so friendly and remembers us every time we dine their. Although it's more on the expensive side what do you expect for downtown... More

I ordered the Chirashi sushi dish on my first and only visit. I always like ordering this dish because I can taste the quality of the sushi rice and seasoning, while enjoying each piece of sashimi. When the sushi chef was putting my entrée together, a Japanese man (owner?) said something to him about the fish being ‘watery.’ I thought... More

First Before the title is explained. I don't expect a Hiro type sushi experience in a sushi restaurant in a small town like Prescott, but there is the hope you stumble into a gem. Esoji is not that gem. The sushi is mediocre and hard to even say "average" as that is giving a sushi spot a negative. The sushi... More
