Been there twice for lunch while at Stanford. Its in a great market place, small resturant with good service and tasty sushi. Also fairly economical.

The sushi is sub par and for the quality far too pricey. The rice was blend, and the wasabi almost non-existent. The fish was pretty fresh but not the best cuts and not well sliced.

I had read the reviews on this restaurant and they were excellent so I have been wanting to try it.. It's a tiny place, very casual, but lunchtime it is always packed. We had a free night so I suggested to my husband that we try it. The menu is pretty basic, mostly sushi. The big surprise is that the... More

I frequent this place for lunch on a regular and have never been disappointed. Their food is consistent and their sushi is fresh. I usually order the chirashi, tempura udon, or a bento box with tempura since the batter is light/fluffy. Service is fast and they keep the green tea coming. I can't think of a better sushi spot in... More

The rice, miso soup, and fish (although fresh) were average at best. The bento boxes weren't appealing and the meat in one of them wasn't good at all. The Chirashi was a good portion of rice and sashimi. This place is well located in a campus area, affordable by students; wouldn't survive in, say, Santana Row. Unless I have nothing... More

This is one of those unsung neighborhood gems that visitors would never know about. Tucked in the back of an upscale shopping mall, and with a decidedly homespun decor, with no reservations. But the fish is about the freshest you will get, with large pieces, and moderately priced. Bento boxes are also quite good. Definitely the best sushi for the... More

I consider Sushi House a neighborhood restaurant. Its a small restaurant tucked in one corner of Town and Country Mall in PA. It serves most of the popular Japanese dishes. My favorite has been Chirashi and the box dinner. Service is fast and friendly.

We have been coming here for the past 25+ years! We have gotten sushi here at least 300+ times, it has been the most reliable restaurant in terms of quality and consistency, of any I have ever visited. BUT: Service can be slow, take out orders are not always ready, and due to the small size, there is often a... More

This is not your fanciest sushi restaurant, but surly serves very good sushi at reasonable prices. On some visits I order Chirasi which I love the assorted fish, or the Bento Box which is a full meal with soup, salad and all with choice of brown rice. My favorite individual sushi is the spicy Spider Role. Staff is friendly and... More

Good value, I usually eat here when I'm in town. No great atmosphere - it's a basic "hole in the wall" place and you usually have to queue to get a table (which I always take as a good sign). Basic sushi and sashimi and hot meals at a decent price for the area.
