“Loved this place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

Loved this place!!

This place was a pleasant surprise, but most importantly a welcome addition to the area.

The food was fresh and had lots of selections. Their kiwi legend roll was delicious. I can't emphasis the freshness of the food.

The service was impeccable. I love it when a waitress actually considers how we will enjoy our feed. She gave us recommendations that were spot on.

Great place overall. :)

“Not For Sushi Lovers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Made the unfortunate decision to stop for lunch at Paradise Sushi. We should have taken the hint provided by the completely empty dining areas, but our craving was for sushi, so sushi it would be. Or so we had hoped.

Visitors have the opportunity to select from two different preparations: (1) the pre-made food cases are self service, (2) prepared to order rolls and bento boxes. We tried a mix of both.

Pre-Made Self Service - The most unpleasant sushi bites we have ever eaten. While they didn't smell terrible, the flavor of the fish was just that...terribly fishy. We took one bite and didn't bother with the rest. Additionally, our gyoza was rubbery and crunchy around the edges. Again, we didn't bother finishing.

Made To Order - We ordered two rolls, both featuring different types of fish and sauces both inside and out. Happy to say the flavor was decent (not really fishy), but the rolls were rather sloppy, and one was excessively covered in a sweet/spicy sauce. We did finish these rolls, but the experience was was certainly not one of precision and freshness.
