Not sure if it was a good choice to have sushi/sashimi in a “bistro” but that was what I did yesterday. I was in the area and figure to have a early lunch. There were about 5 or 6 tables filled when I walked in and I took a seat at the sushi bar since I was by myself.

The service was acceptable, I was given my menu and a glass of ice water when I was being seated but it took a little while for the sushi chef to take my order despite there were only 2 other people sitting at the sushi bar(their orders were taken when I first sat down). I ordered a California Roll and a New Wave Roll(basically it is spicy tuna inside the rice, and yellow tail, salmon and avocado forming the outside). The salmon and the yellow tail were both decent, I meant they are quite fresh but not as good as some other places. I did not enjoy the rice that much, they were kind of hard and to me that felt like left over. It just did not taste that good. The total came to $20.5 excluding the tips.

There are other choices on the menu, pizza and pasta…they may be better choices than what I had. The location of this place is not bad but I will not go back for sushi or sashimi.
