Fuji San Japanese Rest. Binghamton, NY

Hey folks! I was up visiting my family again this weekend, and since I hadn't seen any posts on the merits (or lack of merits) of Fuji San, I figured I'd go give them a try. I got there at 6:30 on Friday evening, was seated immediately at the sushi bar. The place is well lit, clean, and I thought nicely decorated.

I ordered the gyoza soup, which I expected would be just a standard won ton. It was so much more! The broth was EXTREMELY hot - so be careful when you order it... how to describe it. The broth was like a clear soup/won ton but more peppery. the gyoza were delicate and flavorful. AND - there were veggies in the soup. If I had to guess, they put in the gyoza, then raw onion, cabbage, carrots and mushrooms, the this very hot broth to quickly cook the veggies. It was so very tasty. I recommend it.

I ordered several pieces of sushi - the rainbow roll, and several basic nigri - not remembering exactly now because I'm tired, but I'm sure salmon and hamachi were in there. Everything was very nicely put together, and very tasty. There were 2 sushi chefs, one made the nigri, the other made the rolls. Presentation was not fancy, but was nice.
we will definately be going to fuji san again in our visits to the Binghamton area - I liked it very much.
BTW, the staff was very attentive, kept my water glass filled, asked if I needed anything else, etc.
