You know how the '80s were "awesome" because they were different and wild? That's this place. If you're looking for traditional, this is not the place. Lots of unique rolls we haven't seen elsewhere. All very tasty. Staff was super friendly. You could tell who the lunch regulars were, the staff... read more

Came here with my girl friends for a beer. We ordered a variety of food and sushi. It wasn't the best ever, but it was not bad. The location is odd in a little car wash or mechanic store right next to it. We all enjoyed it. They could work on the look of the building.

Went here based on reviews. We tried a variety of sushi and sashimi which were all fresh and creative the staff was very friendly. We did a sake bomb on the house with the chef and manager. Good vibe and friendly place filled with locals. Defintely would go back.

Not very good. More like a Sushi mill. Not Japanese owned or operated. Check out Kashiwa for the real mccoy.

We went here for lunch and split something. We were both sick 30 minutes after we ate. I mean REALLY, REALLY REALLY sick!!!! Do NOT risk it and go here on a date or business, you will regret it BIG TIME!!! It's cramped and in a weird building and the service is ok.

A very nice local sushi place with great rolls, try the Awesome roll with jalapeno! Good miso soup and rice tea. Very service oriented, the owners wait on tables and sushi chef. Very attentive to your needs. Nice atmosphere with LCD screens, music. Small, but comfortable. Frequented by locals. Watch for the specials!

Reviewed this place before but time is a cruel mistress! Perhaps the happy hour, sake bomb, sushi success has caught up with them. It's just so so. The sushi was room temp. Kinda freaky. It was oily as was everything served to us. Fried calamari, sushi, soup - you name it. Had awesome roll and C-17. Too big to be... More

Bit of a strange location, near the airport right under the flightpath, but heh who cares when the sushi is truly awesome. Some really busting tastes, not always your classical styles. Feeling adventurous go for it at Awesome Sushi!
