Echigo - my experience today...

As I noted in an earlier thread, I had enough of hearing about this great sushi deal, and had to experience it myself. I had work in the area and so was able to go for their lunch special. first off, incredible deal. 5 pieces of very fresh sushi for $10. Can't beat that.

However, one significant difference in my experience from what others have posted is that the place was packed. I arrived at around 12:20 and there were only a couple of tables open. When I left at 1:00, every table was filled. There was only one waitress, and she was overwhelmed. Truly. Poor girl. The sushi was a bit slow in coming out but with only two employees in the place, they simply weren't able to handle the lunch rush.

The fish was fresh - no complaints in the quality at all - red snapper, tuna, salmon, crab hand roll, and yellowtail? The ponzu sauce was a bit too sweet. The rice was warm - I personally like that.

Anyway, thanks for the recommendation fellow chowhounds. This place is a winner. Not sure how much longer the lunch special will last though. Hopefully, they will hire more help.
