“There are still secret gems in this city”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

This is a great sushi place, no one seems to know about it. Rikishi is a mom and pop Japanese restaurant that doesn't pay much attention to their decor, but they certainly do towards their food. No one really speaks english well, so ordering can take some time. The restaurant is so brightly lit it detracts substantially from the ambiance. There is this private little booth in the corner that's pretty fun, and I tend to request for it on dates. The food comes out slowly, so don't go here if you are in a rush, there's this endearing slow pace to this restaurant that enhances the dining experience.

The eel and their lightly smoked tuna are the 2 highlights on the menu, but all the fish is fresh and enjoyable.
