This was my first visit to Happy Sushi, and they did not disappoint. The portion sizes are generous compared to other sushi restaurants. The chef and waitresses were all incredibly nice and work so hard. It was a very busy evening, but they took great care of us. I definitely recommend trying this place!

Small restaurant, amazing food, awesome staff. Tried egg rolls, fried rice and several of their rolls ... all incredible! May not look like much from the outside but go inside and enjoy!

This restaurant is very authentic and has great food and service. It is very small so dont bring large groups. They habe a great selection and it was very fresh.

This is a hole in the wall type place downtown Springfield for sushi. Their sushi portions are always large as well as their Maki rolls. Unfortunately sometimes the Maki rolls crumble down when you're trying to eat them since the rice is not sticky enough. But the flavor is always good and the owner/chef always greets you with a smile

This was our first visit, and I'll say it was long overdue. This was carryout, so I can't comment much on the establishment, other than it was clean and small. The waitress was very friendly. I ordered the Rainbow roll, Yammay roll, Golden California roll and the Hungry roll. All the fish was very fresh. I really liked the rainbow... More

The owner is absolutely great, but I just did not care for the sushi. It was good but I've had better. Their prices were great for how much you received. The wait wasn't very long, maybe 20 minutes at around 5 pm on a week day. The location where the building is is a little sketchy.

Right when walking through the door I was greeted by a really happy guy. Japanese music videos on the tv and the sushi is amazing. Fresh fish made when ordered with some of the best flavor I've had in a long time.

I have heard about this place before, but always assumed that Springfield and good sushi are just incompatible... but I was dead wrong. My wife and I decided to go for lunch and were extremely happy with the choice. No, they are not perfect, the building is in an unpopular area and the place itself is small (only 4 tables).... More

What an awesome little sushi place. The owner was so nice. His mother was in the kitchen making fresh noodles and he shared with the whole restaurant. The presentation was outstanding and quality was great. I had the sushi b plate and the egg roll. Go for the egg roll. Just a wonderful experience.

Happy Sushi in Springfield has the best sushi. The night I went I had the Anger Management roll and Miso soup. This roll features shrimp tempura, cream cheese, crab, cucumber, and crunch. The taste of this roll was awesome. Without a doubt, the best sushi I have ever ate. The miso soup was great too. I definitely recommend this place.
