What a great place. Burgers and sushi. Tried the sushi first and it was very good. Many different ones to try, cooked and raw. Moved on to a burger that you can make from the burger up with many toppings to choose from or order the combinations they have listed. Our group of six each ordered a different one and... More

Do yourself a favor and eat here as soon as possible! Friday and Saturday nights can be busy, but you can't go wrong with such a GREAT menu and drink selection. For 1 or 2 people, you can just sit at the bar to speed things up.

The more my wife and I travel across this country, the more often we come in contact with new concepts in cooking and strange pairings and unique recipes and just plain oddball revelations, like popsicles in Alaska or cajun catfish in Montana. Or sushi and mac-and-cheese and Cajun rubbed onion straws in Ottawa, Illinois. But there it is, at BASH,... More

First of all are the great choices - long list of hot and cold sushi prepared right at the bar if you like the "performance" from the real sushi chefs. And the burgers - again an incredible list but then there's the "build your own" option. Of course there are many other menu choices. How about great Mac & Cheese... More

We had the best Crab Rangoon we've ever had as the Two Rivers sushi roll was amazing. Our waitress, Hattie was very helpful and attentive.

We love the food at Bash. I have enjoyed the salmon burger. I wish they could expand because it can get crowded. We go early and that works for us. It's a fun place to go!

We had five people in our party. We were pleased that the wait really wasn't 45-60 minutes as we were told. It was about 15-20 minutes. We waited with the buzzer in our warm vehicle because it was too crowded for us to stay in the restaurant and too cold to stand outside. The menu obviously can satisfy a variety... More

My wife and I did some shopping in Ottawa and we decided to try this place out. We parked in the parking lot next to the restaurant. We went here around six and we only had to wait a few minutes to get a table. The restaurant is a little dark and can get a bit noisy. We sat down... More

If you like tables close together, high ceilings, noisy environment and ok atmosphere, go to this place. Sushi is less than impressive- one of the only restaurants in area serving sushi so that's the draw. Each time I have been here, the sushi does taste fishy. I wish I could like it, would save me driving to the burbs or... More
