A Treasured Explosion to my Taste buds (3.5 out of 5)

In the mood for sushi and closer to here than that other sushi place in Columbia, I stopped in for a Friday lunch recently. The service was borderline good/very good, decor mediocre, price more than you want to pay but acceptable, the food, however, excellent. Of course, like everyone else that... read more

We stopped in last night and for once we did not have to wait, maybe it was due to the freezing cold weather!! The restaurant was full and looks like they squeezed in a couple more tables since the last time we were here. The sushi/sashimi was great, the Baltimore Roll with real crab was great as well. It's one... More

We planned a sushi lunch prior to wedding gown shopping for my daughter and decided to dine at Sushi King based upon TA reviews and location. Great decision! The specialty rolls, Eastern Shore and Happy Together, were phenomenal! All of the rolls were fresh and delicious and the service was top notch! If you enjoy crab and seaweed salad you... More

It is super dark when you walk in, the menu was lacking in description and options. We ordered two rolls, and was super surprised that it was smothered in sauce - could hardly taste what was inside. The teriyaki beef was literally a hunk of meat drowning in a sauce that tasted like it came from a large plastic jug.... More

We got married June 8, 1991, and first discovered Sushi King that July. We have been coming here regularly ever since and continue to be *amazed* at the food and the service. Everything is consistently good. In all our travels, Sushi King continues to be some of the best sushi we have ever had. Among my favorites are the Samurai... More

We went for lunch yesterday. It was my first time eating sushi after a 12 month deployment to Afghanistan. I was really looking forward to good sushi. The Explosion roll was good. Everything else was just OK. Not impressive at all, especially for the cost. The presentation of the food was extremely sloppy. Will not be returning again.

Was here for a friend's B-Day last night - we got a wide variety of sushi & maki as well as the ever addictive edamame. As everyone says the Explosion Roll is the bomb! (Yeah, I went there) Seriously, the Explosion Roll - it's pretty amazing! UNAGI! MMMmm the eel is also outstanding! Sushi, good sushi, isn't cheap. But SK... More
