I'd give it a poor rating except that they have a great cook

This place has issues. I went here for a business lunch. There was a total of 4 customers eating here including the 2 of us. Service was extremely slow. The waitress said the chef was "backed up" and we had to wait. Since the place was empty I assume they have a side business or catering business... read more

I wasn't too impressed with the freshness of the fish, or lack thereof. The miso was so salty I couldn't take more than one bite. My ginger lemon drop had the right idea, but it didn't stand out. Also there was so many broken pieces of ice in there, I ended up chewing it. With all the sushi places popping... More

Very welcoming and comfortable for a sushi bar. Wait staff was timely and nice. I ordered the sushi mixed plate that came with 7 different sushi and a tuna roll. I was impressed with the freshness and taste, it just wasn't enough to earn 5 stars from me. I will definitely be back though.

My general rule of thumb in regards to restaurants is "3 strikes and you're out". Our first visit to HF was decent, but service was a bit slow. However, my next 3 visits are the reason that I will not be returning. The first time was for a late lunch. The place was nearly empty and it took 55 minutes... More

This is a fun place to hit up before attending a show downtown, or late at night after an event. The sushi is great, the various rice bowls are great, and they have a wide assortment of drink specials. Fun atmosphere with good prices. You'll come back again.

Lots of fun drink options, they have some fun martini options along with the regulars. Sushi is fresh and portions large. Staff were polite and fun. The fish aren't the only ones who are happy here :)

Favorite sushi in Boise. Worth the money. Agadashi tofu & bumblebee roll are our usual picks. The service is much better than it used to be. Both in quality & speed.

We have been going to Happy Fish for many years and have yet to be disappointed. Not only is their sushi great but their martinis are delish too. It's a perfect place for a dinner out with friends!

I enjoyed my sushi at Happy Fish and would love to go back. It was walking distance from my hotel and I wished I had found it sooner during my trip as I would have gone back a second time. I sat at the bar and ordered a hand roll to eat in and a specialty roll to go. I... More

I was quite surprised..., let's face it what are the chances of finding both fresh fish (absolutely vital for sushi) and a good sushi chef. The did both and very well too. I went right 5:30p, so there were no crowds. As far as service goes, it was very good too. anyone that has been too a good sushi bar... More
