“Good Sushi in Southern VA? YES!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

I was really surprised by this place. A few of my coworkers had recommended it. I have had sushi all over the place and this is some of the best. I sat at the bar alone and the chef was very chatty asking where I was from. He asked what types of sushi i liked and from what I told him he made me a custom roll. spicey tuna topped with eel and avocado, delicious. I highly recommend this place and will be back again if I am in the area.

“Great Sushi - friendly staff”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I had a great experience at Ben Gui Sushi. The waitress did a great job explaining their menu and guided me to select the 'Trust' sushi roll and the sushi salad. Both were superb. The chef created a great roll according to my likes, and made it extra hot for me on my request. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The price was a bit high, and the portions are not huge, but for Japanese food, this is rather standard. If you want quantity at the cost of quality check out a buffet... but if you are willing to pay a little more and not get stuffed, at the reward of having truly great sushi, this is the place for you.

“No wasabi inside my sushi?”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I ate here only once for sushi lunch special for around $14.
Sushi had no wasabi inside; I never had this experience before.
This is same as having a hamburger without any condiments... (So much for being authentic!).

Selection (of sushi) reminded me of typical "grocery" sushi selection. One of the pieces was imitation crab meat- such a disappointment to see this being served as "sushi".

I was the last customer for their lunch hour; this might be the reason why but I did not see any chef at the sushi bar. My 8 piece sushi came out from the kitchen- something I don't want to see at a Japanese restaurant when I order sushi or sashimi, and something ANYONE should avoid.

I consider myself to hold higher standard for Japanese food.
This wasn't a disaster but clearly below average.
I won't go back.

“Friend folks and great sushi”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

The sushi chefs are a really nice couple. They know their customers and make great recommendations. I've tried some stuff I never would have and it's all been wonderful. They have lots of specials that aren't on the menu so you definitely want to ask. They're a little expensive but so worth it.
