Very Good Sushi

This place deserves more stars then it has received on other reviews I've read. Though I am rating it for the sushi only. The sushi was very fresh and very good. I had the Deep in Pit roll, the rainbow roll, and tuna and squid sushi. All of it was outstanding. I come to Hartford often on... read more

We had intended to try another restaurant in the area, only to find they were closed for vacation. As we drove down the street we noticed Izumi, and decided to venture in based on other reviews. Judging it by the outside, I never would have set foot in here. However, had I gone with that impression we would have missed... More

Ok so I have a half hour for dinner break from work. That being said I've learned to call my order in at least an hour before pickup. One month ago I ordered sushi at 8 pm for a 9pm pickup... Walked in. No one was dining in just a few people at the bar. Waitress/hostess who always answers the... More

We were recommended Izumi otherwise we would not have gone in. The exterior was to us uninviting. Once inside we found a great Japanese welcome, modest prices and a great selection. The waitresses were very helpful. The dinners were truly delicious. I definitely give it a five star rating. PS - I loved the lychee martini.

This restaurant is a diamond in the rough. Don't judge a book by its cover. Inside is clean and neat. Staff is very accommodating and the food is delicious! Highly recommended.

We first visited Izumi about five years ago and quickly got hooked on their exceptional and innovateive sushi rolls, all very fresh and tasty. The variety is beyond most Connecticut Japanese restaurants. Try the bonzai tree roll - tuna and avocado wrapped in cucumber peel in a pool of spicy ponzu sauce - as an appetizer. The Angry Dragon is... More

Friendly staff made me a custom roll - perfectly! Nice selection and be sure to check out both sides. The bar area is quite nice - other side lets you watch the sushi chef.

We ate here the other evening & will never EVER go back!! No sushi for us...we both got "meals" - now if you like small portions, VERY overpriced with no leftovers & your "salad" that comes with your meal to be served in a small soup bowl & consists of about 20 pieces of plain iceberg lettuce, 1 slice of...

Visited this restaurant the night before our flight. The food and service were very good. Its location was close to our hotel and Bradley airport is another plus
