Visited Madison for a couple of days and sought out this great sushi restaurant. Quality and range of rolls and sushi was excellent. We had lunch one day with excellent crunchy and firecracker specialty rolls - top class sitting up at the bar. Sushi chefs showing excellent skills. The next day we did dinner outside looking up at the Capitol... More

This place is generally pretty busy, but part of that is because it has a great location by the capitol square and has outside seating. The service was good, our waitress was nice and out waters never got empty. I will not claim to be a sushi connoisseur and I did like the sushi, but it was only slightly above... More

Three of us shared several sushi rolls and everything was fine, fresh, but not special. Limited options for non- fish lovers and very few veg choices. With wine it was only $15 each though, so good value. On a weeknight for dinner they were out of edamame and several other items. Outdoor deck has dull street view and very windy.

This restaurant is pretty small, so It fills up quick. The sushi is good, classic rolls that you can find anywhere, and they do have some unique rolls too.Great Cocktail menu. Nice wine as well. Very enjoyable experience.

$10 lunch special...2 sushi rolls for 10 bucks...one of the best deals (and great food) in town, right off the square in downtown.

I am picky with sushi and seafood, and of course sushis and sashimis won't be as good here in Madison when compared to California or Asia. After the Muramoto empire starts declining with the quality of the food, I started looking for other places. Red Sushi is not a disappointment, and turned out to have the best sushis in Madison....

We went on a Saturday night at around 7PM and had to wait around 1 hr and 15 minutes for a table. The people who arrived after us had to wait around 2 hrs for a table. The restaurant is small and trendy. We ordered the sashimi deluxe set and an order of the dragon roll to share for two... More

Small space but well laid out and the trendy new happening place in town for sushi. Downtown on the square providing a great location. Fun staff and active atmosphere...oh, and of course delicious food!

Lost of rice, 2nd tier seafood. Typical student sushi quality, there are several better options but this one is busy because it's close to the Square and most patrons don't seem to know better.

Everything about this places is awesome! The appetizers, the entrees, the sushi, the sashimi, and the service. The only thing bad thing I can say about this place is that it's too small. It would be great if there were more tables, but that's really a minor problem.
