“liked everything about it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

I was quite surprised..., let's face it what are the chances of finding both fresh fish (absolutely vital for sushi) and a good sushi chef. The did both and very well too. I went right 5:30p, so there were no crowds. As far as service goes, it was very good too. anyone that has been too a good sushi bar knows it takes time to prepare. if your food is served too quickly, it was probably not made to order.

“Ok sushi...terrible service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Very disappointing. Too expensive, we were basically ignored and stuck in a back room. The sushi was good, but not worth the price. We wont be returning. Go to Lucky Fins instead. Wonderful service, good prices, and fantastic sushi!

“Basic sushi, a bit pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The guy behnd the counter was very young and not Japanese (or remotely Asian), never a good sign in a sushi place. They have a very limited selection, and their rolls are all the usual suspects. The bumblebee roll was creative, but the others I tried all tasted the same. Eel was OK, tuna was not the best quality. And their prices are high. Place itself is kind of dark, feel like an old dive bar more than a sushi place.

My favorite sushi place in boise! Small place located in BODO, connected to an awesome little Irish pub, Ha Penny. Great fish and martinis. Friendly staff. I love coming here!

“Sushi Bar Fly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The best way to truly experience what Happy Fish has to offer is to sit at the sushi bar, decline a menu, tell them what you like, and let them create you something delicious! Always an adventure, always delicious! Top the experience with some Saki bombs and get the whole place in on the action! Best night....EVER!!
