I travel through this area a couple of times a year and happens to be looking for sushi this last time through. Turned out to be a great choice. Fast an friendly service at the bar. I had the sushi dinner with a variety of pieces. I would definitely come back as well as recommend this place

My husband and I ate here on a last minute decision. The food was good, authentic and fresh. The service was fast, and the prices were reasonable. It was a little small, and the lights were bright, but we would definitely eat here again if we were in the area.

Went to lunch with a friend who lived in Japan and is married to a native Japanese. Ando was his recommendation, so I was hoping for something really good. It was better than good, it was excellent. We both had Chirashi Zushi. Literally means Scattered Sushi. Very tasty and quite filling. I'm ready to go back. The food was fresh... More

Been going here for years but they continue to impress me with outstanding food and service. We recently were here for lunch. They are very accommodating for special requests. I usually ask for specials and they always have outstanding and unique Japanese specials (ask for the Japanese menu and ask questions!). I had a bento box with grilled black cod... More

Very small restaurant though and 3 of the tables are located near the kitchen/busser entrance. Got splashed with water a few times. The Bento Box with chicken teriyaki and California Roll was great.

TA patrons had rated this number one in Blue Ash.... I think folks need to get out more often. The food was good and it's a nice little neighborhood Japanese restaurant, but not very memorable. The wait staff was very nice and friendly and I assume this is a family owned business. I didn't get the sushi and perhaps that... More

a great authentic Japanese restaurant located in a convenient area that is readily accessible around town. for those accustomed to half price sushi, or crazy elaborate rolls catered towards westerners, this is a pretty legit place to get the real deal of a good Japanese meal (yes they have Toro, if you don't feel bad about depleted tuna stocks in...

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of Japanese food available at this restaurant in Blue Ash. Tucked away in a strip mall not very visible on Pfeieffer Road near the on-ramp to Interstate 71 South, Ando has authentic Japanese food. It's always a good sign when Japanese eat there. I had the ramen, which had more of a... More

Recommended by a friend, this is the best Japanese restaurant in north Cincinnati. Lunch crowd packs the restaurant. Sashimi bento box is a great choice with varieties from salad to miso soup to pickles to fresh sashimi. 100% recommend.
