Told my little brother to pick any place in town for his birthday and he picked Sushi. Mio worked out time-wise and had been (we thought) deemed to be chow-worthy so we went.
The uni was said to be from a fresh box and looked dark/dry so we bit and ordered. They ended up giving us the remnants of the oldest box instead with only 1 good uni in the order. Yuk.
Coming from the sonoran desert in Phoenix, I've had better maguro at the todai sushi buffet. No lie. Spicy tuna came from same material.
Spicy noodles were OK. Tempura veggies were lukewarm. At 2.05pm the server told us we had better order as they were closing and we would be unable to order anything afterward. $150.00 later I'd say I had 10 times better sushi at a little place we stumbled across on...Powell? Around 45th I think, but sounded something like 'takahashi' as I recall. Their Uni was the best I've ever had (we went on Thursday). Creamy scallop was to die for, as was their spicy tuna of all things. Only spent $100 there but felt immensely more satisfied. How odd is that?
Was amazed at Mio's cheap prices and was wondering how they could pull it off. I don't think they did. Forgotten items; lax service (refills) etc. FYI
