Delicious and beautiful food, attractive surroundings.

I've been there three times this month, and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. They serve some of the best miso soup I've had, the sushi is fresh and beautifully presented, the staff is prompt and polite. My only caveat would be that the tempura portions are HUGE. You will probably want to get... read more

This is a great place to eat. The food is very authentic to Japan and tastes great. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is meant to make you feel like you're in Japan. It may be best to call ahead and reserve a table on busy nights, such as Friday or Saturday, but during the week it shouldn't be... More

Their sushi is always amazing! Fresh quality ingredients! Everything I have had has been absolutely delicious! Large portions, and a great variety as well as great specials! Never a long wait, and the customer service is wonderful. They are pleasant and always smiling. You can sit at the bar which is also a really great environment and watch them make... More

Sapporo East is the area's best sushi house and has been awarded as such locally over the last several years, with the outfit winning dozens of local achievement or 'Best of' competitions over the years. The most impressive thing about Sapporo, and there are a great many, is the consistent quality. Having dined here for the last several years, I... More

I recommend this restaurant for its sushi. We ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was crowded, but there was no wait for a table. The sushi was good. However, the steak teriyaki was not great.

this is the best place to get sushi and rolls in this area. there are many other competing restaurants, but Sapporo East is by far your best bet. Their food is the tastiest and freshest. Now their hot food is not as stellar... but they win the prize for the rolls and sushi. The staff is very warm and friendly.... More

We have tried sushi or other Japanese food at many other restaurants, but Sapporo East is our favorite! The staff is friendly, the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. It's also a BYOB and they provide glasses for you to enjoy your beverage.

Service was very fast and the restaurant was enjoying a nice flow of customers. I ordered the avocado roll, cucumber roll and vegetable roll. All were solid and good. Prices were reasonable. However, for me, nothing stood out as exceptional.
