Took some out of town friends to Bob on Friday evening. Loved it. Appetizers were great (gyoza and edamame) as were our entrees. Those who describe the portions here are preaching the truth. I had the rainbow roll and it was borderline massive. Many of...More

Huge pieces, plentiful delicious quaint sushi eatery. Soft crab roll & Dragon roll were awesome. You might have to wait for a table since it's a small place, but the service is friendly & attentive. Definitely will be back!
