The food is consistently wonderful. They also offer delivery, which is a plus when it is snowy and cold outside!

I'm a sushi novice but this was so delish. The Friends maki roll was the best roll I've ever had - friendly service and sweet outdoor seating. Try this place!

I had originally made reservations at another restaurant (Japanese BBQ) and found out when we got there that our dining companions preferred sushi. The hostess at the BBQ restaurant graciously recommended Friends that was nearby. Friends is located in a townhouse up a set of stairs. The room is attractive though the space is somewhat narrow and may give diners... More

By far the best sushi I have ever had. The ambiance of the dining area was pretty cool. Very modern furniture to a classic cuisine. The service was pretty efficient. I recommend the friends sushi roll. Pricing is fairly agreeable for area and cuisine.

I was walking up and down a number of streets and had a hard time finding a Sushi Restaurant that served lunch. I then found Friends with the help of a cab driver. I was by myself, my wife does not like sushi. It could not have been a better selection. It is a small restaurant, but they had at... More

I really liked this place, and the food tastes great.. Their sushi portions are generous and the price is not bad based on quality of food.. If you're a sushi lover I very much recommend this place.. It's a chilled out environment inside.. Everything I tried was great.. Recommended!

This is a place that has solid sushi and sashimi, but lives off the location and tourists, not off he quality of food. Good, but not great.

Small, easy to find location, but seated right away. Service was great and the sushi was amazing. Affordable place to eat out in a bit city! Great martini and cold beer. Would recommend no matter the occasion!

This is not average sushi place, it has very interesting menu with strange but good taste. naturally there are all normal portions, but on top of that more exotic also. But i loved it. We were there with colleagues and had several portions we shared and all were delicious. For me that white decor including those inconvenient white chairs was... More
