We can't wait to return as the food was absolutely wonderful! This restaurant is one of the “Tucson Originals.” We try to support our locally owned places as much as possible, and we were SO glad we chose to try Bushi for the first time this evening. We ordered two appetizers-the Agedashi Tofu-talk about melt in your mouth. It came with a delectable sauce so good and silky-and a seafood dish-the Spicy Garlic stuffed Shrimp appetizer-WOW! We could have easily made a meal out of just these items, but hey, why stop there? For our dinner entrée’s Mike got a chicken dish (Chicken Katsu-moist, yummy chicken done just so) and I got a beef dish-Bulgogi which came sizzling to the table in its own cast-iron presentation skillet. This dish was savory to the max. We figured that with the variety we chose, it would enable us to get a good overview of the offerings at Bushi. Try the organic green tea. It was a perfect complement to the meal. Usually I put sugar in tea, but not this time. It didn’t need it. After our server Sarah cleared the table, she then brought two cute little, steaming egg-shaped cups of complimentary coffee from Savaya Coffee Market. They’re here in town out on Broadway. They’ve partnered with Bushi to turn folks on to their organic coffee offerings. My husband loved his, and he doesn’t even like coffee! It too was delicious. Sarah told us that this particular coffee from Ethiopia was specifically chosen to compliment the sushi. Well, we didn’t have sushi (this time) but it was great, especially with just a touch of sugar. Everything was cooked to perfection. The ambience of the place was warm and welcoming -decorated simply, but tastefully with lots of polished wood. The restaurant proper was impeccably clean. Even the restrooms were spotless. Our server, Sarah was great. She was busy, but took time to patiently answer all our questions, had a winning smile and a friendly personality. It was clear that she LIKED what she was doing. As I looked around the room that night, it seemed the other patrons were enjoying themselves as well. As our leftovers were being packed up for us, and before we left, we were already thinking about what dishes to try next time...and next time we'll bring friends! Kudos to Bushi!
