“Interesting concept, too much rice.”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

The concept is interesting, the fish is fresh.. However, for the price, there was too little fish and too much rice.

“Fun, delicious and great value”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

This small, modern sushi place has unique menu and friendly staff. You pick the base roll (e.g. california) and topping (fish or veggie mix to go on top of the roll) and they give you eight massive maki pieces that are enough for a lunch meal or light dinner, for $8.
I love spicy food and their 'spicy bomb' roll topping really hits the spot - it appears to be made with jalapenos as opposed to simple mayo and red pepper mix other sushi places use.

“Good, Quick, Sushi With An Interesting Twist”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've driven past Eight Piece more times that I can count, and finally stopped in--and wish I'd stopped in sooner! I had read about the personalization you can do to the sushi rolls they sell, and it's always looked so *empty*--I wondered if it could really be any good at all.

Well, it is, and I'll be going again. It's great for a quick sushi hit--and they have a bunch of choices for customization. Do you like tuna, salmon or more standard sushi fare? Great? Pineapple? Interesting.... Mango? Really interesting.... Too interesting? Choose what you like, don't choose what you don't? At eight bucks, you get to choose two toppings and a sauce--or don't! You can choose standard toppings and sauces, or be adventurous and make something new.

The rolls are the big rolls--not the small ones, so one is just about all you need. It's clean, streamlined, and reasonably priced for what you get. They could probably use some more business, so give them a shot!

It's fast, the service behind the counter is quick, and you can just as easily take out as eat in.
