“Average At Its Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

There was not a lot to really jump up and down about with Crave Sushi. While we really didn't have any major complaints, there was also nothing to really give high marks for either. When I say this place was average, I literally mean average. The service was slow, but not to a crawl. The food was good, but nothing stood out. The interior was nice, but had an odd odor. I wish I had a great review to write hear as there was a lot of potential. I really hope this place realizes that potential as they have a great location.

“Not really "craving" sushi from here, but OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Went here as it was the highest rating true Sushi place on Tripadvisor. We looked over the entire menu and both of us decided to get the kobe beef burger instead. Doesn't say much about a sushi place if you'de rather just have a burger does it.

Pros: Great kobe beef burger! Side of sweet potatoe fires was also delicious. Service was very friendly.

Cons: Small sushi menu, and none of the rolls looked very good or daringly different. The outside of the place is a little run down, as is the neighborhood around it. Inside was OK but needing an update. Pretty dirty bathroom and entryway near kitchen/bathroom area.

Won't go again, not while other options are around. B

“Great Midtown atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

I tried Crave with my husband using a Groupon deal. The atmosphere is great and the sushi was good, but not the best I have had. However, the beef carpaccio was excellent. I highly suggest it. Good happy hour too!

“When in midtown, you should definitely go to Crave Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

we did and were very happy with the restaurant. The decor was Japanese black red and white minimalist which puts ya in the mood for sushi. The service was thoughtful and efficient. Our rolls were good not exceptional but good. The best item we ordered was the Poke appetizer. Yum. When we are in the area, we will return to Crave.

“There is better in Houston”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Crave usually has good deals to be had so I would wait until you have a groupon or the like to go. Decent run of the mill sushi.
