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.

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, Sushi X is the... 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!
