We came here for lunch because every other sushi restaurant in town was closed for lunch. I did not know that everything closed between 2 and 5. Well Spicy Tuna stays open, and I'm glad they were. The place is great!
Upon walking in the first thing we discovered was that the place is much bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside. The bar area was big and had a nice selection of liquor. The sushi bar was nice but it could have been larger. There were plenty of seating available at the sushi bar though. They have a lot of tables filling the rest of the restaurant so the place can really pack some people in, which means that you will not have to wait for a table.
The wait staff was very attentive and our sushi chef was very knowledgeable. We ordered three specialty rolls and some individual pieces. The first roll was the Kiss of Fire. It has pieces of jalapeño pepper on the top of each piece. The second was the Dancing Tuna. It has a great special sauce that is spicy on top. The third was the Tokyo, which was a light tempura roll. All three rolls were spectacular. The mix of ingredients were a perfect match. The individual pieces were yellow tail, salmon, red snapper, octopus, roe, eel, and eggs. All the sushi was top quality.
We finished off the meal with a couple of 22 oz beers. Our bill was about $75 but that was to be expected for 3 house rolls, 7 pieces, and 2 tall beers. They do have a lot of "standard" rolls for a lower price. Rolls like salmon with avocado, tuna, or other rolls you can get at most sushi places for around $8 a roll. We decided to try the special house rolls for our first visit.
They have a large menu with other options if you are not into sushi. I didn't really look at the menu for other things because I wanted sushi. Although I did glance at it to see if they offered Agedashi tofu. (they didn't) The next time we visit we may have to order off of the regular menu and give something else a try.
I noticed that a lot of people say this place is too pricy but I disagree. I think the rolls are priced well for the quality that you receive. The other menu prices may be higher (I didn't look really) but I think this place is trying to cater to the sushi eater. I think that everyone who is complaining about the price for the food are just too accustomed to cheap take out restaurant prices. If I want to pay $7 for a regular dish like general tso then I would expect to get a quality of China King or a buffet place.
This place is great and is now my favorite sushi place in town.
