Great Lunch...Quick service

Great sushi place for lunch. Quick service and good prices. Try the Bento box and any of their sushi.

Food is of great quality and fresh. You get what you paid for. My only favorite sushi place in town I deemed the best.

We went here on a whim! We wanted sushi and heard this place was authentic. We didn't know you needed reservations but were seated at the sushi bar right away! The place was packed and now I know why. The food is fresh and really good.

I went to this restaurant with a friend because of all of the great reviews it had. We got salads and two rolls of sushi each for dinner and the bill ended up being $60. The sushi was good, but not worth the price... We didn't even get alcohol because they don't serve alcohol there. At least you can bring... More

I visited Ando Japanese Restaurant while on a business trip staying at the hotel across the way. I'm not a huge fan of sushi (raw), but love the other types of food they offer. I ordered the grilled salmon teriyaki (came with miso soup, rice, salad and vegetables), and a California roll. I got this as a to-go order, so... More

My customer recommended Ando Japanese for our business luncheon meeting. I was not disappointed. They are located in the corner of a small strip mall. The room itself is also small but the tables are not cramped together. It is an inviting space with friendly competent servers. We were there for about 1.5 hours and it was a interesting watching...

That is what I heard at least from a local. Very good food and friendly service. Get there early or you won't get a table. Bring your own wine or beer - no alcohol served.

Came here for lunch by myself and next evening I was invited by a customer for dinner. It's a dining experience of sashimi and sushi. Ask for Japanese menu or chef special. The chef is knowledgable and passionate and will describe fish like an expert. Food is excellent. Best sashimi place for sure.

The first time I called for a reservation they were booked until late. When we did reserve, I asked if they had Sukiyaki, she said Yes, then asked if we'd been there before, (No), and gave a list of things to know, like "Hard to find" in the mall next to the hotel, "NO Alcohol, but you can bring your...

Traveling through Cincinnati, I had the good fortune of staying right next door to Ando's Japanese restaurant. This is a very popular place, the food is excellent and the service was prompt even though there was not an empty seat in the house.
