Even if you don’t like sushi, you should go for the show! The owner/chef is hilarious! We went there for a b-day, and the chef sang ‘Happy B-day” accompanied by a chorus of helpers and gave us chocolate sticks. We also liked the sushi boats – sushi plates are placed on boat-trays on a moving belt. You pick what you want – each plate is a different color. Each color is a different price. In the end, they just calculate how many plates you had. You can also order tempura dishes from a menu.
All in all, the place is worth at least one visit! For a party of two, expect to pay something around 35 – 40 (before tip). We had: assorted veggies tempura (3.70), assorted seafood tempura (4.80), and sushi plates (ranging from 3.25 to 3.75). Try the Japanese beer (5) or sake. And yes, there are options for those who are not huge fans of raw fish – like the delicious smoked salmon sushi or the tempura dishes.
