Sushi Day is a small restaurant serving Japanese food including sushi.
We've tapped into Sushi Day a few times now for takeout....it's only a few blocks from home and parking is always easy at Park & Tilford. Today we got three combos to share (assorted tuna/salmon and california/dynamite rolls, and assorted nigiri). It was 5pm and not very busy yet so the wait was about 20 minutes...lots of time for a nice stroll through the gardens with confidence the sushi is freshly made. Nothing startling on the menu if you're a sushi fan, just decent priced sushi to satisfy your craving. The restaurant is small and has one table for four and 5 tables for two so they focus on takeout and seem to do it well.
My daughter and I were headed to white spot but it was packed even before the dinner rush - probably because there is hardly anywhere to eat around this part of town. I knew there was a sushi place nearby that for whatever reason I was never interested in trying to date - it just seemed to small. Normally I am all over trying sushi places. So without options we tried it.
It is a very small place with 4 3 seater tables and a counter. You order up front, and it is all pretty much self serve (get your own tea, etc). Yet they bring the food on nice dishes. It's one of those strange places where you don't really know if it is a real restaurant our take out or what - and thus you don't even know if you should leave a tip or what. Myself I don't really enjoy these ambiguous experiences where I question what the protocols are. I'd probably give the service more a 2.5 since you don't actually get much, but it was at least cheerful.
Anyway what service you do get was cheerful, and it does seem like a mom and pop kind of run place. The food took surprisingly longer that you might think given how many customers and that it is sushi (but not actually long), but you realize it is because there is probably just the two of them and each dish is prepared when ordered.
I don't even know what I ordered as I was a bit rushed and I just saw a picture for a couple of seconds and went for the combo. I ended up getting a veggie roll wrapped in smoked salmon, a chicken teryiaki roll, and a salmon roll - that was $10. The veggie roll was fairly fancy and well made and tasted fresh. Miso soup was pretty good. Other stuff was just average. I'd give the food a 3.5 actually - it is better than what you might expect from just eyeballing the place. Food is certainly the strong point. Value is good for quality of food, but not for lack of service so I'd call it average.
I probably wouldn't make this a destination spot, but if in a bind like I was the other night, I might try it again.
We found this small "mom and pop" type restaurant beside the Park and Tilford movie theatre for a quick pre movie sushi fix. The service was friendly, patient and fast as we had a nice selection of mostly sushi items to choose from. The sushi was outstanding and fresh so good we came back a week later and still was quite happy with the great food and service during a busy lunch crowd.
They have a couple of outside tables in front and have take out service.
THUMBS UP OR CHOPSTICKS UP on this quiet little gem.
Stopped today with a friend for a quick bite. Self service ordering, tea, and napkins. Had a California Roll, 3 peices of sushi and miso soup, food was tasty, but not exceptional. An acceptable place but the value was not there due to all the self service.
I picked up sushi for lunch one day and found the girl who served me at the till polite but while I waited for the chef I was surprised at how miserable he was. The woman asked him to come out from the back and he came out mumbling under his breath and started slamming the ingredients around. I also noticed that the few times I have gone back it was closed for repairs (about a month apart). I don't think I would go back but the price was pretty decent though my sushi was warm which was creepy. I bought avacado rolls so that may be the reason it was warm...still....
Spent $22 on two take out items, Combo A and the Extended Sashimi, I expected larger pieces. Attempted to call back and let them know but no answer. No, I will not be back, there are many better places such as Gens. I eat a fair bit at Shabusan and would strongly recomend it. If you are stuck in line at the theatre, go for it but otherwise...
