I love Sen sushi because the food is good, the fish is fresh, and the service is wonderful.
I've tried the lamb teriyaki and personally I wouldn't get it again, as it wasn't great lamb. Too dry. It was interesting, though.
I finally tried the fried tofu and eggplant, and it was a lovely starter. It came in a really delicious sauce.
The sushi is good! Not the very best I've ever had, but outstanding for the price. The ebi sunomono actually comes with nigiri type ebi, not those little shrimps you often find in cheap sunomono.
Sen is my go-to place for sushi. Not good for a fancy type dinner, but great for everyday sushi, takeout and a casual lunch or dinner.
I can't understand why Sushi Katsu next door seems to be more busy, as their food is awful and more expensive than Sen.

The descriptions of the specialty rolls enticed me to try this place, and I'm so glad I did!
I went with some friends and so I got to try a lot of the rolls.
~Asparagus and Bacon: Yummy! A must for any bacon lover.
~Tropical salmon (with mango salsa on top): The salmon was good and went very well with the mango.
~Drunken Tiger Roll: Wow! A huge roll with some sort of sweet pale sauce that was very good. I might go back to get this when it's on lunch special for $5.
~Saru's banana roll with crab and chocolate sauce: reminded me of a sundae, and it was actually really good! Huge pieces though! The roll had a whole banana in it.
I had some nigiri too and the fish was fresh and had good texture.
The place is small but clean. It was very cold inside the night we went there, it didn't bother me too much.
The takoyaki was SO GOOD. Reminded me of the takoyaki you can get at Guu.
If you only ever order basic things like salmon nigiri and a tuna roll or something, I'm sure there's a better place, but I'm definately going back for the specialty rolls and the takoyaki!
