“Nothing but awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Say Sushi is legitimately a hidden gem in State College. It gets a bit expensive sometimes, but they have awesome lunchboxes and (contradictory to other reviews), I've never had anything but great sushi there. It looks a bit sketchy on the outside and service is slow because there is only one person serving during the day, but I learned to love sushi because of this place.

Good rolls, but have had better. I'm spoiled by living on the coast.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

I love Say Sushi. Lots of great options. The only negative is that the sushi is a little more expensive. I usually order the noodles.

“Not even average sushi for SC”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2009

I love sushi, and have both eaten it across the country and made it myself. Say Sushi's was the (second) worst of them all (only to stuff I got inside a Giant Eagle in Maryland once that was inedible). To say that someone doesn't have average sushi for central PA is sad... because Central PA has below-average sushi. The fish was fine, although frozen rather than fresh - that's good though because it had to somehow get to central PA. The rolls were very small and loose.. as in, half a sheet of nori and dry, tasteless rice falling off (well-made sushi rice should be slightly sweet). It was also expensive, even for the area. I have friends that like it, but I recommend the place inside the Hub or Fuji and Jade Garden. They are much better.
