Sushikio in Los Altos

Following a previous post on this restaurant I decided to check this place out. Went in for lunch sitting at the sushi bar. Service was very warm and friendly, with a mussel and edamame appetizer on the house.

The have a several mix and match (sashimi + sushi + cooked dishes etc) lunch specials ranging from 7-10 dollars, however I ordered a bunch of sashimi's Sake, Hamachi, Tuna, and an Alaska Roll.

The portions of fish were quite large, the chef even threw in a few extra pieces. Overall the quality of the fish was not bad, although it did not approach Sushi Tomi standards, to me it seemed like the quality of my "home made" sashami, which entails buying fish from nijiya market and cutting it into sashami sized pieces.

The alaska roll consisted of sake (salmon) on the outside with a layer of rice and avacado inside. Again it was good but not spectacular.

Restaurant was very clean with a bright modern interior. Overall I would recommend this place for its reasonable prices and good portion sizes, however the quality of fish was not at the level of Sushi Tomi's.
