Decent sushi, good value, no alcohol

Happy Fish is a cute sushi joint with a wide menu of traditional and more exotic sushi rolls. I got the bento box combo with one California roll, two crab rangoons, and a ginger salad for $8, which was a great deal. The sushi was fresh and the crab rangoons were hot.

I love their miso soup, sushi and crab Rangoon's. Unfortunately, the service isn't that great. Like other posters said, I came in for lunch during work right at noon. Our order was taken right away, but it took an hour to get out of there. I love the King Kong roll, I get it every time. They need to turn... More

So far it's been an hour long wait for a regular item from the menu. The place is only half full...there was no attention to us other than the initial water. Completely dissatisfied

Great deal in Sushi...Happy Hour!!!! The King Kong Roll was excellent... The Nigiri was clean and fresh the white tuna, spicy tuna and spicy scallop was so good we ordered an extra course. Service was super attentive and friendly. This location is convenient to Bradley University and has never disappointed.

I LOVE their volcano roll. It's different from the volcano rolls I'm used to--it's a Califorinia roll smothered in bakes scallops and crab with unagi sauce and spicy aioli. It's served hot, and it's fantastic. This is the reason I came back a few times (I'm from out of town). The service, on the other hand, wasn't so great during... More

Happy Fish is GREAT!!!!!!!!!! We've been going there on & off since they opened. The sushi has always been very good, but since the new owner, Brian, has taken over, everything is even better. The sushi is fabulous! All of the fish is very fresh as well as a large selection of rolls . Also, the service is great. What... More

This is not the finest sushi in Peoria but it does have a style all its own! The maki here tends to be more cooked and have lots of sauces but it is perfect for introducing someone to the idea of sushi without being too overwhelming. If you want superb, classic sushi this is not the place but if you... More

My husband and I have gone to Happy Fish on other occasions but not sure exactly what is going on with the staff or the management, yesterday was a disappointing experience. We arrived in the afternoon and the place was not busy at all. We ordered an appetizer and hot sake to begin. The waitress brought back the sake lukewarm.... More

Our last trip to Happy Fish back in August 2013 was not very favorable. However, we decided to try again after a 2 month absence. For us things had definitely turned for the better. Maybe a new manager or owner? Not sure, but service and sushi were definitely much better than 2 months ago. Our server was friendly and cordial.... More
