Sushis are fresh and taste very good. The waitress is very attentive and caring for glutenfree people. The combinations are excellent and a lot to eat for the money.

Calamari slices too breaded. Tuna no taste. Seaweed salad good. Spicy tuna avocado good. Good value at happy hour. Excellent new waitress. Nice to sit outside.

Met colleagues here for dinner and drinks. I haven't had sushi very often and am a vegetarian but they had a veggie platter that was pretty good. The rolls were very large and quite tough to bite into - which made eating them a bit awkward. I had a Lychee Mojito that was nice. Great to sit outside!

Visiting the area and saw this little jewel. It has a nice patio area to enjoy lunch or dinner. The sushi was excellent. It was so fresh. The service was great and quick. I would highly recommend.

Nice clean, quite tidy place easy ordering and great food. I can recommend the crunchy prawn and avocado. All food very fresh and presented well and service was very efficient and professional. If I didn't live 15000 miles away, I would be back next week. Well worth a visit if you like good sushi.

Well it's been three years since we've been going on and off to Tono Sushi as it's still the only dependable Japanese restaurant in our neighborhood. A few times when the place was not too crowded we had sat inside and it was ok. However it really is not pleasant when the place is even half full and you are... More

Had the sushi combination plate & was a great value for 2. Fish all types very fresh & rice was cooked to protection. Added a few other individual rolls & there were leftovers. A definite return during our meetings these next few days.

The service is a bit spotty, but the sushi was very good and fresh. Excellent Uni and even the vegetable fried rice was very good. I would not go out of my way to eat here, but if you're in the area, it's a solid choice.
