We go here as often as we can afford to eat sushi! Try the sushi chips, the Crispy Rice Roll, and the Makoto roll. Hands down freshest and best combinations you can find. Skip the Red Bowl and eat local - it's better!

Great food in a very comfortable environment. Our favorite sushi place in the area. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort.

Found this little gem and loved it!!! The food was the best japanese I've had in a few years. Small and cozy with authentic food. If you want the real flavors of Japan this is a great spot

My husband and I lived in Las Vegas before moving here and we were very disappointed with the sushi selection. We were very spoiled with over the top good food there. Although Susa Sushi is very good, it didn't meet our high standards. The sushi...More
