Very fresh and flavorful. Not a fancy joint and we loved it! From appetizer to rolls to dessert everything was good.

“Delicious, unpretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Small little local place. No one it's here to be glamorous, just eat good sushi. Service was prompt, friendly and genuine. Will be coming back.

“Creative Rolls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

I have been visiting Mr. Sushi for years. Good for decent sushi at moderate prices. The most impressive thing about this restaurant is the wide variety of rolls they offer. Must be at least 50 combinations to choose from.

My only disappointment is they changed the wonderful Ginger dressing they used to have on their house salad. It was tangy and sweet at the same time. The new dressing is blah.

“Hard to find but great sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Mr Sushi has changed it's name to Akai Hana, and it is fantastic. We came in just as they were ready to close after lunch, and still they graciously welcomed us, which made their break before dinner short for them. I had the sashimi lunch, one companion had the Mrs Sushi lunch box, another had the bento lunch box, and the fourth person had the tempura lunch. It was all wonderful. The tempura was crisp, and everything was fresh and tasty. The staff was accommodating and gracious. To top it off the price was very reasonable. I heartily recommend this one.

“Steady and good sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

This is not the best sushi in town but it is darn good. I have been going there since 1993 and always enjoy my sushi. They have altered the recipes a bit over time but nothing too major. The spicy tuna hand roll is the signature dish as far as I am concerned. They pack it full and you get your moneys worth. I also very much enjoy the albacore sushi. They put garlic sauce on top to make it so good.

The prices are very realistic.
