I was pretty shocked to read the previous reviews. I'd only eaten at Sushi Boy a few times in the last year, and always had a pleasant experience. What compelled me to write however, is a result of my last two visits in the last two weeks, which were very satisfying.
What I love about this place is that it's quirky. The owner is quirky and the hand drawn art that adorns the walls is full of quirky character. Yes, the owners nails are a bit dirty, and the place is not spic and span, however, the food is pretty tasty stuff, and is worth the visit.
Most recently, I had the b-b-q pork belly don. The meat in this dish was delicately stewed in a delicious sweet and savory dark sauce. The meat was perfectly tender, and there was lots of it. What is usually meat and rice in a don, was instead also packed with a generous helping of fresh mixed greens and a dollop of ginger (the kind that is not dyed in pink!) Truly delicious. My companion had the unagi (eel) don and was equally satisfied. The negitoro roll is what I usually go in for, and it is always fresh, and tasty.
On my last two visits, I noticed a few changes to the place, which has improved my already favorable opinion. First of all, there are real dishes which have replaced disposables. Secondly, when dining in, miso soup is on the house. Thirdly, he has hired extra help and it has made for a less harried atmosphere, and a more hospitable one.
On top of my list of tops, this place uses no MSG in its food. A rarity in Japanese fast food cuisine.
So to all that I say, "Oh yum."
