y sis was in town and wanted sushi with a large group. That narrowed the options down but we decided to give Temaki Sushi a try. It’s a few doors down from Yagoto Sushi, Z&W Shanghai and Gyo Para Gyoza & Ramen Bar.
We dropped in on a Saturday evening (with 7:00pm reservations). Holy crap, it was busy.
The inside has a mix of tables, sushi bar seats and a couple larger, secluded booths.
Service was decent but you’ll have to flag someone down for tea refills. Food came out at a good pace for our table of 5.
The menu is huge; salads & sides, appetizers, tempura, robata (BBQ), sashimi, nigiri, chef’s recommendation, aburi sushi, noodles, teriyaki, donburi, assorted sushi, dinner specials and maki sushi.
They did have a separate sheet for their daily fresh options.
Light, cold and smooth.
The chopped scallop was fresh.
Real crab wasn’t particularly memorable.
Some pieces that were different from the sashimi platter were the chopped scallop, unagi, saba and ebi.
Chef’s sashimi ($48.00 for 30 pieces)
This comes out beautifully presented. We were given 10 types (three pieces of each); salmon, tuna, hotate, tako, hokkigai, ika, tuna gomae, shima aji, hamachi and kanpachi.
Every piece was fresh and of good quality. Seriously such a good deal!
Beef was slightly over cooked but overall, a decent bowl of udon.
Pleasantly surprised by our meal at Temaki Sushi. Bring a large group
