We had a party of 6 and 4 of us order sushi and two others ordered the teriyaki chicken with white rice. All the sushi dishes were great, but the soup was watery and no flavor, house salad was OK and the teriyaki chicken was dry and did taste fresh, as if had it been cooked earlier in the week....

Very enjoyable sushi experience! Nice low key atmosphere and excellent tasting sushi! It was a pretty quick dinner service and the chef really wants to make sure you got what you were expecting and liked it.

If you want great straight sashimi or sushi, it's the freshest around. I know the owner will refuse his suppliers fish if not fresh. The appetizers are really good, particularly the assorted fish/seaweed salads and tataki. The American style salad isn't worth eating. When it comes to the rolls, they are missing the mark. The textures are lacking. I don't... More

Although its pricey, this is some of the best sushi I've ever had. Its just so fresh and flavorful, you can tell they do it right here. All the sushi and sashimi I chose were chefs choice, and it tasted incredible! They also have a big menu with lots to choose from to match your budget or taste buds, and... More

My husband and I just had lunch here and it was the worst sushi we've ever had (and we live in WV!!!). I was putting extra wasabi on mine just to kill the taste of the tuna. I must say the service is great tho, very friendly and attentive, but not good at sushi.

I was really surprised by this place. A few of my coworkers had recommended it. I have had sushi all over the place and this is some of the best. I sat at the bar alone and the chef was very chatty asking where I was from. He asked what types of sushi i liked and from what I told... More

I had a great experience at Ben Gui Sushi. The waitress did a great job explaining their menu and guided me to select the 'Trust' sushi roll and the sushi salad. Both were superb. The chef created a great roll according to my likes, and made it extra hot for me on my request. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The price... More

I ate here only once for sushi lunch special for around $14. Sushi had no wasabi inside; I never had this experience before. This is same as having a hamburger without any condiments... (So much for being authentic!). Selection (of sushi) reminded me of typical "grocery" sushi selection. One of the pieces was imitation crab meat- such a disappointment to... More

The sushi chefs are a really nice couple. They know their customers and make great recommendations. I've tried some stuff I never would have and it's all been wonderful. They have lots of specials that aren't on the menu so you definitely want to ask. They're a little expensive but so worth it.
