If you are heading to Lubbock and hankering for some sushi, I don't know where else you'd want to go but Hayashi! Freshest sushi I've had outside of a big city - ever?! The only reason why I didn't mark it as excellent is because I thought the rolls were small for the price charged - considering this is not a big metro getting big metro prices and I got the fried ice cream and that was a huge dissapointment (more on that later in the review). But, the quality is top notch for this area - fresh and tasty. Try the lobster tempura roll - fantastic...and do not go without trying their kani salad - amazingly good but the portion could have been bigger but still really yummy, just as the sushi could have been bigger but still delicious! But everything was fresh and delivered quickly and tasty, so I wasn't complaining but you will probably have to order more here than you may at other sushi joints. Also, try the Japanese Coke Float, this is really and truly a refreshing alcoholic drink that you will have never tried before and after you have it, you'l want to ask your bartender for it again and again! It's delicious and surprisingly low in price. Another thing I didn't like is no prices on the drink menu - they need to list that out. So, eat from the main menu that's where the bliss is, do not order from the dessert menu. The fried ice cream was definitely something they bought pre-made and it didn't have any taste and was tiny and under the fried part was an ice cream ball made with a melon baller - it was that small. Skip it and go for the good stuff. Looks like people were really enjoying the Hibachi show as well, maybe I will try this when I go back and tack on some sushi on the side! Because I know this is my go-to when I come back to Lubbock!
