Being a great Sushi lover, I was enthused to see there was a grand opening of a new Sushi restaurant just located in the heart of Guildford. (It had replaced the Anducci's)
I've now been there twice, once for lunch and dinner. Firstly beware of the parking as there is only about 20 spots and the lot is also located next to the Starbucks drive through = some tricky driving.
Upon entering the restaurant you are greeted immediately by a hostess who will seat you either in a booth/table. They also have an upstairs to seat larger and private parties. The decor is sleek and clean with simplistic decorations. The menus are beautiful and new as are the utensils which suggest a higher quality ambiance.
The menu itself covers most Sushi lover's delight as it ranges from over 10 specialty rolls, various Sashimis, Udon, dinner/lunch boxes and misc. Although to my disappointment, they don't offer All-You-Can Eat, some of the photos on the menu weren't actually menu items and some items weren't currently being sold. When the food arrived, it was beautifully presented.
IE. A spider roll had a picture of a cobweb in the background drawn by sauce and the rolls were placed in a shape of a spider.
The food was made with great quality and care.
The service I found was lacking as between ordering, recieving and general inquries times lagged. The servers there do not communicate well in English so there is a language barrier. For example, I asked how much a side of rice would cost and got a completely different answer. As stated below, the tea refills were hard to come by.
If you are use to just eating Cali rolls or a dinner box and expect less than a $20 bill, this place is not for you. Specialty rolls start at $10. For me it is too pricey and there are places that would be cheaper but the quality speaks for itself.
This is a good place to come if you are celebrating or entertaining guests. Not on a regular Tuesday night where you are craving sushi. Like I said, good for once in awhile!
