“Hidden But Worth It”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

This restaurant is hidden stuck in a shopping center. But for locals you know where it's at. Been there twice now for dinner. Always busy but service is good. Picked a few sushi items that I never had before and really liked them but some were so so. Their roll special with soup and salad is a great deal. Excellent presentation of the plates. Heard that if you go there for lunch you get the same amounts but lunchtime prices. Will try that next time since we live so close. Great that we do not have to go all the way to Tampa for goos sushi.

“Smoke and Mirrors - cheap frozen sushi”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

They use flashy lights, plastic palm trees, boats, and ice and martini glasses to hide their poor quality sushi. It smells of fish as soon as you walk in. The first time we ate here I ordered a simple and not raw roll because I didn't trust it. It was OK but we didn't go back. We normally go to Tampa for real sushi/sashimi. We only had a sitter for a few hours and after so many friends had been raving about it we decided to give it another try. I was craving sushi all week, so we ordered a large Sushi and Sashimi for two entree. I was so disappointed when it came. The sashimi looked like it had been butchered. Not precise cuts like I'm used to. The Salmon was frozen and crystallized in the center. The yellowtail was chewy on the ends. The tuna was cut so thick and heavy that instead of melting in your mouth it felt heavy and I gagged. We stopped eating. We complained about the quality and freshness and we were told that we should have ordered something else. We told the waitress about the frozen Salmon and chewy yellowtail and she said it was fresh and walked away. We ate the Spicy Tuna rolls and a separately ordered a tempura type roll which were OK but nothing special. We asked her to take the Sushi boat away and she didn't. We asked for the bill, mind you with our huge boat of uneaten Sushi/Sashimi still sitting there and they charged us for everything. They didn't offer us anything, even to comp our $3 spring roll appetizer. I asked for the manager, name tag said "Jay" though he acted like he spoke little English. I told him we normally love sushi/sashimi but had the following complaints and our server ignored us. He told us that the Salmon was fresh, everyone loves it, and we just don't like Sushi and he wouldn't do anything for us. Our bill was large but we paid it and did not leave a tip. We left hungry and frustrated - and will not be going back. If you must come here, order something very simple and not raw.

It's hard to have a romantic evening with a TV screen over your head in every direction.

“Our Go To Sushi place!!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We live in the area and are thrilled to have this place nearby. Prices are descent and food is excellent, even the cooked dishes are fantastic! Wait staff is friendly but they are always busy even during the week in mid day! That's says a lot! We usually get the 3 rolls which come with soup and salad but their specialty rolls are amazing and everything is very fresh. Great take out too!

“Wasabi Grill”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The service and food are terrific. The portions are such that we usually take some home. Location in a shopping center near Beall's on Cortez Blvd. makes it inconspicuous to
traffic; but once you find it, you'll return.
