Eclectic place. Great happy hour specials on sushi and drinks. Early & late happy hours. Where else can you combine sushi and salsa dancing? Love the combination... Great time, not fancy.

Had happy hour sushi, not impressed. Bartender was friendly but other than that can't really think of anything special about the place.

There's a tall bartender that's great. That's the only thing positive I can say about this place. From an overwhelming smell of roach killing bombs to the rips in the chairs, to the clientele who I'm pretty sure are dealing drugs, to the despicable use of the word sushi for the nasty food...this place should really be shut down.

I bought a gift certificate for 1/2 off here. My daughter from out of town and I went and when we opened the door I was actually freaked out! Nasty furniture, dirty, dingy. We did not stay, so cant say as to food. Nobody was there eating and it was prime time dinner hour!

My partner had a late afternoon meeting downtown. I did some searching for the local coupons and found one for Opal. It looked interesting. We decided to meet there. I got there a little early and settled in at the bar. They do a good bar business with the cheap Corona. As others note, the place is grubby. They specialize... More

Sushi was real small our entree was very good. But the womens room smells like an alley and was not very clean.

This place was highly disappointing. I was hoping for some good food, maybe a steak and some sushi, and instead all I received was a nasty plate of food. The appetizer of "vegetable tempura" was worse than most cheap chinese take-out, and the filet was one of the worst steaks I've ever had. I didn't even bother sticking around to... More
