“Trandy new sushi place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

The name is not appealing but the food is good.
Sushi alive is one of the new wave sushi restaurants that we (unfortunately sometimes) find more and more of. They've been there for a while and it's a nice experience.
New Asian decor, sushi bar at the end, music and young people make this place hip and on the expensive side but the food is good, well presented with nice fresh flavors. You can always go for happy hour and eat and drink for $15.
Nice place to go with friends or partner (someone you can share the bill with) but having three kids that like sushi it's become too expensive. This beeing said, you don't have to go every week. So enjoy !!

“My New Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I dined at Sushi Alive last weekend after hearing many positive things about the restaurant. The food was as good or better than any in the area and the atmosphere/decor reminded me of the best in NYC. Loved the half price appetizers. The menu was varied and had plenty for the non-sushi eater. The rolls were very creative without the over-the-top prices you see for "special" rolls. We can't wait to go back.

“It's Always Fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

If you're up in North Tampa/Carrollwood Area don't miss Sushi Alive. They have great happy hour prices on Sushi and service is always terrific. Doesn't open until 5 pm, and there's usually a line to get in...which is the best sign of great food!

“Decent sushi with a club-like atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

The food here is pretty decent. Not 100 percent authentic, but it's okay. The atmosphere is quite club-like; loud party music and dark.
