“Ah-so's sushi is tastey, but service, so-so.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Solid sushi spot, but we really came to sit and watch the food being prepared in from if us.

Disappointed with the limited seating to watch the food prep, so we ended up at a table in a dark area of resteraunt.

Service was impersonal, almost curt. Add the dark atmosphere, it's just not the best experience.

Food alone a resteraunt does not make.

Sit at the prep tables, or skip Ah-so.

“The Only Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is out go-to sushi place. The chefs are accomodating by cutting our rolls very thin. The wait staff are attentive, bringing drink refills quickly. And the ambience is perfect. Oh my, now I want to run out to Ah So--makes my mouth water just writing about it.

“Great Fun for a Group!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

A group from our office had lunch here and enjoyed the hibachi chefs as they prepared our lunch. We also tried several sushi items. Service was excellent and the food was very good. It was a lot of fun for a big group to really enjoy lunch together.

“Go with the Hibachi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The food is excellent. The show that the cooks put on while preparing your meal is always a good time. We always have leftovers to take home because portions are fairly large.

“A big box sushi spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I felt this restaurant was impersonal, overpriced and just average. I think Sakana Sushi which is about 15 minutes west on the 101 has better sushi, at incredible prices. Go there.
