Best Sushi in the city for your money

First off, I want to explain the 4 stars. While their food is amazing, I hate the layout of the seating. It's an elbowed building and it's just awkward sitting there and they don't take reservations. But the FOOD! I have eaten there many times and eat sushi at many places and I have to say... read more

We had been at "sushi X" multiple times, brought friends and referred the place. All feedbacks were positive. Casual, laid-back atmosphere, good service and the best sushi. You cannot get wrong, whatever you order. Excellent deal for lunch. It's called "lunch X box" for $10. Easy access and always street parking available.

My boyfriend and I frequent here at least twice a month. We've introduced friends, family, and acquaintances to this spot. Every roll we've had is stellar especially the megatron, stingray, and the crab rangoon roll. You can split a megaroll and app for two people under $30! Love the owners, staff, and atmosphere. Thank you Sushi X for always hitting... More

I would fly back from DC just to eat another Lava Roll! Space is small and cramped and a bit odd with the Japanese cartoons playing nonstop but the sushi is the best I have ever had - period! Also bring your own bottle of wine, there is no corking fee which is awesome!

I had a stew can't remember exact name but it was delicious.Sushi was also on point. Steps from my home I see myself becoming a regular. Close to downtown but parking is easy to find.

Really friendly staff. Quite affordable. Tiny building that is easy to miss when driving. We really enjoyed the spiciness of Red Crush (masago, shrimp tempura, bacon, avocado, lettuce, fried jalapeno, red sauce, spicy mayo, tempura flakes, eel sauce, rolled in soy paper) and fresh tuna in Lava (Spicy tuna, cream cheese, scallion, tempura-dipped with eel sauce). My wife and I... More

Fresh fish, creative rolls. Loved the red dragon. BYOB - no corking fee. Very small/intimate/candle lit dining room. Japanese films playing on large wall via projector. Thumbs up!
