My friends and I resorted here for dinner after not wanting to wait at Toshi’s sushi. Nikkyu was just a block away, and getting a table here was no problem as we were literally the second customers for dining in at 5:30pm.
Our dinner included Nakoya roll, Avocado salmon roll, Spicy salmon roll, Salmon sashimi, Main Street roll, Agadashi tofu and Beef sashimi.
I liked the agadashi tofu’s crispy thin batter. It was piping hot, we had to wait for a while to eat it. The salmon sashimi was very fresh and was served at a good temperature. The only thing I liked about the beef sashimi was the tangy sauce it came with.
The rolls were delicious in general. I ordered the Nakoya roll because it had avocado, mango, and coconut. It came out to be a little disappointing because I felt like they put coconut on the menu as a gimmick to get coconut loving people like me. They were just very dried, and stale coconut bits on top of the roll. The roll turned out to be much more pleasant without the coconuts.
The main street roll was one of the special rolls with tuna, unagi and avocado. This one was tasty, and I loved the creaminess of the avocado.
The service here was very very slow. There was only 1 waitress to bus all the tables and take takeout orders at the same time. Even though the restaurant was not busy at all (only 2 other tables were occupied after us), we waited quite a while to order, and get our bills sorted. At least you can always get a table here it seems.
