Just behind a gas station and next to a Super Hero shop lies Ando... I seem to remember it's been here for a while, from the days the Brown Dog Cafe was next door, but I never visited before, following a recommendation from someone I...More

Located in a small strip mall next to the Crown Plaza hotel on Pfieffer Road. This small Japanese restaurant features sushi, shashimi, etc. But it also has other traditional food as well. I'm OK with sushi but not for a whole meal so I had...More

Ando has excellent sushi and sushimi. They have many other Japanese dishes and one may even get a nice steak. It is owned and ran by a Japanese family.

Having lived in Japan for 8 yrs. and enjoyed their fine dining, I can speak with some authority on fine Japanese cooking. When I am not traveling to Japan, I can take comfort of having fine Japanese food right here in Cincinnati. I look forward...More

I've been going here for years, so I don't know why I have never written a review. I was originally introduced to Ando by my Japanese friend, so that speaks volumes. This is authentic Japanese. You may even be alarmed by some of the shrimp...More
