I used to like this place quite a bit and was a regular customer. I have had a few bad experiences in the last 6 months but kept giving it a try.
I ordered for pick up tonight. I went and got the food and when she read the order back to me there was one too many rolls. She said I had ordered 3 of one type of roll when I actually ordered two. The food was already packaged up. The roll was an inexpensive one. She actually went and opened up my bag and rifled through all the boxes until she found the "extra" roll and then slid it down to the sushi guy and had him pick it out. Was he going to throw it away? Serve it to someone else? Yuk and CHEAP. I was a regular customer, she made the mistake - was it worth losing me over? I guess so. Anyway, the California roll was superfishy and the cucumber roll constisted of six minscule pieces. Other places have much better quality, value AND manners.
I went in for a quick lunch alone and did not feel out of place at all. THe menu was varied, good combos and service was good. The sushi was very fresh and delicious! The seaweed for some reason seemed a bit chewy though and I've not expeienced that before. But all in all it was a good reasonably priced lunch. However, the music was too loud and it was weird having rock music in a sushi place. I would definately go back.
I loved this place. I WENT at least once a week. I wrote a great reivew. Then I felt ripped off. I ordered a catapillar roll. It is a 3.99(expensive) california roll that gets three thin slices of avocado on top and becomes $5.99 on the menu. It rings up when you pay at $6.99. I coud buy 2 whole avocados at the store for $3. I HATE being ripped of and I despise the sly ness of having the reister ring up higher than the menu. The woman preteneded `:me no speaky english when I complained. I have not been back.
I have been to this place many times. The quality is very good but my waitress always seems to mix up my order. Its not really her fault because she barely speaks english but at the end its not my fault if they screw up. Love the Tuna Tataki as well as the Gyzo its very good. Prices in not cheap nor expensive but if they would get there service act together I would go there more often.
Great rolls and chicken teriyaki lunch specials!
I have been here a few times and have tried some of their combo specials, appetizers, and special rolls. The portions are big and well worth what you pay for, which is probably why I keep coming back. The freshness of the raw fish and seafood is decent. The quality of the food is good for the price you pay. The waitress (also probably the owner) was nice and asked us how everything tasted and if we needed anything else politely. The decor of the place is pleasant and it seems like they put a lot of money and effort into decorating the place so it looks like an authentic japanese restaurant.
They have free delivery (for north poco) if you order more than $25 and if you pick up a $25+ order you get free gyoza and edamame. They have some really good $10 or less combos, which are only posted on the restaurant windows. They have a large selection of special rolls (15+).
3 things people look for in a Japanese restaurant:
I feel Sushi Village met those criteria. Even though I have never dine in, the take outs have always been good. The chef is friendly and he is Japanese. Therefore, you know it is authentic. Usually, Japanese restaurants have Korean or Chinese cooks. So it is really a gem to have a Japanese Chef make my sushi. I usually do not visit restaurants near where I live. I am not sure why but I would go to Sushi village again.
