(PHX) NEW! Far East Mesa - ZUSHI

scorpioscuba | Apr 3, 200812:30 PM     9

Within the last week or two a new restaurant, Zushi, has opened on the southwest corner of Power Rd. and McDowell. We are pretty starving for some good restaurants out this way and in the last few years we've started to get a few. Zushi looks to be a great addition, especially since their menu extends way beyond just sushi and has a "bistro" feel to it.

I had a chance to check it out today at lunch and I have to say it looks VERY promising! The interior is much more upscale than the neighboring "Got Sushi" (which I went to once and will not ever go back). You almost forget you are in East Mesa and start to think you might be in Scottsdale. There is a large sushi bar on the right, regular booths and tables in the middle and then a very large bar (alcohol) to the left. Beyond that is a huge outdoor seating area. The fish was fresh and some new and unique rolls were on he menu. In addition to sushi rolls (which there are a lot of) the menu includes hand rolls, nigiri, sashimi, sandwiches, salads, entrees and bento boxes. I'm really excited about trying a bento box soon. On the sandwiches side of the house the options include Kobe burger, Shanghai pork sandwich, seared tuna sandwich and the list goes on. There are some very enticing appetizers and the entrees have me wanting to go back tonight for dinner.

Today we just tried a few rolls for lunch - all of which were very good. Again, fresh fish, unique take on some standard roll options.

Their website isn't up yet but when it is it will be: zushibistroaz.com
