New space just up the road from old spot is a welcome upgrade from previous spot. Much better lighting and less cramped. Warm vibe. You go for the sushi and sashimi, which remain excellent, fresh, and perfectly prepared. Short Lyft/taxi ride from Inner Harbor. For...More

Look, I'm Sushi Intermediate. I'm no novice, and no I don't try to show that I'm better than you by claiming I like sushimi or whatever that is, and I don't really mess with food pretension. So if you're a man or woman of the...More

Shoyou is a BYOB sushi place in Fed Hill with limited hours. Given its location I was surprised at the BYOB thing (not a fan) as well as the fact they are cash only. These aren't deal breakers for me, if the food experience is...More

We went to Shoyou last evening around 6:00 and by the time we left quite a few people were waiting to be seated. This tiny restaurant only sits about 20. Portions are larger than in most other sushi restaurants and the presentation is unique. We...More

This place is a hidden gem. They only accept cash and there are only about five or six small tables in this hidden little row home on Light Street that's always packed. I suggest getting it to go and it usually takes 30-45 minutes because...More

I love this place. It's small, so prepare to wait if you go on a weekend. The sushi is fresh and made with care and the service is awesome.

Around us were tables full of enthusiastic happy diners being served elaborate creations - so they knew what they were coming for, and appreciated the kind of sushi that Sushi Bruce creates. I can understand how the crowd that frequents this neat little restaurant is...More

I've been here every time I've stopped in Baltimore. I found it through TripAdvisor and I've seriously been hooked ever since. The rolls are really big as are the salads, so beware when initially ordering! You can always order more. We've tried nearly every roll...More
