You want good sushi that doesn't cost an arm & leg? This is the place! They are ONLY open Monday-Saturday 5pm-9:30pm & they get BUSY! All the sushi is great! My favorite is the Squirrel Hill Roll & I add sprouts.

Have you ever bought sushi from a grocery store? You know the type, it comes in a plastic box with the soy sauce and wasabi in a packet. The rice is like one solid mass and the seaweed is chewy. That's exactly what this sushi...More
