“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant has a reputation for being a bit slow but of course most everything is made on on request and is very good. You can get a California Roll at lunch without wait often, as they sell a lot of those I think, and seem to have a few prepared ahead.

I especially like the crunchy "rolls" with roe on top. Very flavorsome. The rolls are not huge...six pieces, so there is room for dessert. Have not tried the fish sushi, but understand they get it in fresh every day and have heard good things.

We HAVE had better Sushi rolls in big cities, but this is outstanding for Hays. Do plan on going with friends with the thought of a leisurely evening in mind.

“Great food, bad waitress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

The best sushi I've had in many years. I've had sushi from all over the country at this was among the top!! Great atmosphere and the chefs were very polite. The only down side was a waitress that was very rude and screamed at other employees and didn't seem to care that everyone was watching and the amount of time she spent on her phone would have been better served helping us. Otherwise it was a great place to eat.

“Surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Who'd have thought you could get sushi this good in the middle of Kansas? Started with Bang Bang Shrimp followed by West Philly Roll. Both excellent!

“A Must Visit in Hays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Ever since our first visit, Sake2Me has become one of our favorite places in town. Their sushi rolls are amazing and the service has been consistently good. We had a conversation with the owner and learn that the restaurant uses FedEx or UPS to deliver their fish daily, and he hired a Japanese chef to cook and design the menu while adding a little "fusion" to it. If you are not a fish eater, they also have chicken wings, dumplings, noodles, and Jack [--] rolls made of pork and beef. The atmosphere is welcoming and urban. I always take my visitors to this restaurant, and they all loved it! We'd recommend their Bang Bang Shrimp, Dragon Rolls (with BBQ eel), Nightmare on Elm Street Roll, and pretty much everything on the menu. They also serve soda, iced tea and beers.

The lunch time can be a little busy so make sure you have at least 40 minutes for it. They close on Sundays and often have specials announced on their Facebook page. The capacity of this restaurant is about 45 people, and it does not take reservations.
