We had been looking for this place for a while. We received numerous tips from various people that this place had really good sushi.. It was hard to find because its tucked into the westview shopping area, between a dollar store and mcdonalds.. every time i went there, i would find the japanese market, which also serves ready-made sushi, but i was sure this could not be the place.
Anyway, we tried it. I will say, the food was very good.. we did takeout, but just seeing the inside of the place, very nice ambiance.
The menu was nice (not huge on rolls if you like that sort of thing), but lots of different type of fish that you might not find at other sushi places. When we got the food, it was very nicely presented (in takeout containers), and very fresh.
However, you need to evaluate whether its worth the price. These folks are quite expensive. And the nigiri was not overly large, quite small actually, fresh, but small.
Now, we've been to Takumi over near horseshoe bay.. Hamaei was about the same price wise, but if you want decadent expensive sushi, go to Takumi.. with great ambiance too. I didnt feel that Hamaei was good value.. again, great fish, but a little overpriced for what you got.
This is a great place for special occasions, but if i were doing takeout sushi weekly, this will break the bank.
Maybe you get what you pay for. We will probably order again, but special occasions only.
