This is one of those cases where following tripadvisor reviews recommendations works just great. It's hard to imagine stumbling upon this place if you dont' read / gett a recommendation to go there. It is definitely worth it, and the first sign you get is the long waiting line, even while other Asian restaurants near-by are nearly empty.

In short: the food was all great; the fish was very fresh, the wassabi strong and flavoured, and some of the non-sushi dishes come with also a very nice, thoughtful design.

The staff are also very friendly, and make time for checking with you along the meal, even though they run all the time (the place was completely full).

The toilet is slightly sub-standard, but nothing to dramatic, still safe to use if you need to.

Upon recommendation from staff at our hotel, we got in line at Tomisushi and put in our names. We had to wait a half hour on a Friday night, so we walked through the adjacent Asian market and had snacks and a fun time perusing the aisles. Once we got into the restaurant, we had a floor show at the sushi bar, and ordered grilled salmon and the tempura dinners. Both came with miso soup, salad, side vegetable, and tea. All terrific! The salmon was the best I've eaten in years, and it was obvious that all the seafood being prepared in front of us was very fresh. Portions were more than generous--we filled up, and still they brought us little dishes of green tea ice cream as the perfect palate cleanser. Service is excellent, prices very reasonable, and it's obvious why so many locals crowd into Tomisushi. It's terrific.

Thank WickB

Love this place. It's a total hole-in-the-wall from the outside, in a strip mall with all Asian businesses. Inside, it's a nice, charming place, modern in design. The food is superb, sushi, noodle dishes, etc, plus interesting daily specials. The clientele are at least 75% Asian. Staff is very accommodating and will explain anything you are unclear on.
We had a sushi sampler of five fresh fish from a particular area in Japan that I cannot recall. It was great. All fish I'd never had before, super fresh, well-prepared. We had a noodle dish, which they were happy to add extra veggies to for us.
We will definitely be back in the future.
