I've been to most of the popular sushi places in Tampa and this is by far the best. Some of the best rolls you can find. I've had most of them. They are all delicious! The location is not the coolest area in Tampa, but if you are looking for good food sometimes you can sacrifice "cool".

This is my go to place for great sushi. I love the atmosphere, it is very calming and peaceful. The place is always busy, but the low lighting and dark colors make it almost zen. The lunch special is a great deal, but the best deal is happy hour! The sushi is super cheap and still tastes amazing. I highly... More

The sushi was pretty good sand the server was very helpful and attentive. I wish they would have had happy hour drink specials as well. Either way you get a lot of sushi for the price. It's a really good value.

I do not want to sound snotty and I do not consider myself a sushi connoisseur (but I have eaten at Nobu, Morimoto, etc.) but the sushi was not good. The fish was paper thin and the rice was not good either. I do not know if it was that we went for lunch and they have a better quality... More

The personal is attentive, food is excellente...One thing you have to be there 15 min prior opening at 5:00pm. I fnot you will be waiting for a long period of time. Other than that we loved My husband and I go at least 2 or 3 times per week.

The decor was lovely. The seating was plush in some areas however I didn't like sushi and the amount given. It was tasteless and small. I have had better.

Tuna Poke - We ordered the Tuna Poke and Kickin' Kani Chowder, both very very good. Although if anyone has ordered the Crab and Corn Chowder from Crabby Bills or Cooters you'd know the base of the soup is the same and they just add in the mushrooms.... which I was okay with since I LOVE that chowder to begin...

Sushi Alive has great sushi and if you are lucky enough to snag a table during happy hour, your check will make you even happier! Try the Tempura Japanese Bagel roll. Soooo good!

Love, love, love this place! Highly recommend the Pink Lady, Crouching Tiger, Jade Dragon, and Hawaii 5-0... all made me supremely happy. Sushi was extremely fresh and service was attentive without being hovering. There is nothing better than great sushi! They also have an 'after 8pm' happy hour with half price appetizers during the week and half price bottles of... More
