Samurai..Financial District Japanese

Prompted by a post below, I tried this place today for takeout. I consulted my takeout menu and order a "sushi deluxe." Guy asks me for the menu #..which I give him. Oh, you must have the old's now $15.75 (my menu says 12.75) I say fine and go pick it up. Place has 1 customer at noon..bad sign as I know you can barely get in the door at Sakura Bana at noon on a Fri.

Get the bag back to my office and open it up...2 tins of some kind of roll. I called them, they said bring it back..we gave you the wrong order...ok, these things happen...fortunately the place is close but I still call strike all the new menu prices are up 30%..and they're probably open for 6 months..12:10..the customer count is up to 6.

Finally settled in to eat. It wasn't bad..(cept for 1 nasty piece of mackeral)...but I still prefer Sakura Bana...far better fish..and Samurai has jacked their prices to be considerably higher than least for the "pre made" sushi specials.

Walked by a new place on Washington..last block before State...Sushi Ueno (sp)..looked like more of a fast food/take out type place..few tables. Anyone tried it?
