I went to Hemsin's for dinner the other night, on Queens Boulevard and 39th, and discovered a new Japanese place two doors down! I decided to investigate a couple of days later. At Tiger Sushi, the decor is simple, a kind of "woody" motif like Ariyoshi down the block, but with fewer tables. In comparing the menu to Ariyoshi's, I discovered this place is a bit cheaper. But to my surprise, I found it also gave you more bang for your buck! For $8.50, I got a maki combo consisting of a California roll, a salmon roll, and an eel roll. 18 pieces! I had a mushroom soup as well, which was also quite tasty. They must've supersized it because it was enough for two people!
My question is why aren't people checking this place out? Is there something I should know? I went on Friday night, around 7pm and while Hemsin two doors down was half packed, this place had only two other customers (and they were together). I have yet to try their hot entrees so before I go back, I'd like to get any opinions out there from anyone who has been there before. Anyone?
