4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Ugly Fish has excellent sushi & if you don't like sushi, they have very good bento boxes & other cooked cuisines.

“Good restaurant that has dumbed down its food. Get the Peking duck though. Still very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

I've been to the Fish twice and each time the food was very good, but not great. Each time more authentically Asian dishes on the menu are crossed off. Sigh. Pandering to middle America. Could be great. Falls short, but suffices.

“So-So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The staff is friendly and the place is clean. The sushi rolls were ok, nothing special. They fell apart as we ate. The menu is full of items but many are now not available. I am willing to give it another try but not for a little while.

“okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Food was good, atmosphere could be better, outdoor deck is very bare, like sitting in a parking lot! Service on both days, bad.

“Surprisingly tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Since I am not a sushi fan I did not expect much from a recent lunch visit as assumed sushi would be the predominant selection. I was surprised by the huge selection on the menu, way beyond sushi. The atmosphere is cool, service very good, and lunch plate was way too much to eat - but I did it anyway. Ordered the chicken cashew and it was really yummy. I was not sure what "Asian" cusine meant, but this ranked right up there with my favorite Chinese meals.
