In town for a conference on a Monday night. Was craving sushi so I went to Fuji San. Amazingly, I was the only one there. I ordered miso soup, small salad, a couple of spicy tuna and salmon rolls, and a fried banana for dessert. Struck up a great conversation on football with the owner as we watched Monday Night Football (Broncos at Chargers). Great service. Great food. Great conversation. Can't go wrong here. I might go back tomorrow.

My first time here, but certainly not my last! The food was great, and the prices were very reasonable. The atmosphere is very different from what you think by looking at the outside, seeing as the restaurant is in an old house. There are several unique items on the menu. I suggest the Mardi Gras roll. It's just what Mardi Gras is - a complete sensory experience! I can't wait to visit this place again.

This place has not always had the best looking location but the food has always been good.

I lived in Houston for awhile and get used to being able to find excellent sashimi on every corner, but now that I'm back in Mobile, it was quite an ordeal even finding a place with some that was half decent.

I am SO happy I went to Fuji San!
The service was very friendly. Even though our food was slow to come out, it's understandable. I came with a large group, and everything we ordered would take awhile to prepare well.

I will definitely be going back to satisfy my sashimi cravings.

**BTW- If anyone knows what the tough, transluecent white fish is that they serve with the sashimi plates, let me know! I have never had it before, but despite its toughness it was by far my favorite. It has a pleasant creamy mouthfeel, and a delicate, not-fishy flavor. I'm positive it wasn't tuna. At least not anything like anytune I've had before.
