Sushi Gawa is by far the best sushi in town. The perfect amount of sugar and vinegar in their rice. Happyfish always tastes vinegary and sushipopo isn't even in the same league. The ambiance is nice and everything is VERY clean. The sushi chef's cook with a kind of surgical precision. Don't waste your time if you know ANYTHING about sushi.
I agree that this is a great restaurant and clearly superior to the other sushi bar in Peoria. The prices are reasonable, the food excellent and the wait staff very friendly and accommodating. My biggest complaint is that when we visit we are coming from about 40 miles away (where we have no sushi restaurants) and it seems that Sushi Gawa is always closed. We've been there in the afternoon, on weekends and during times that seemed perfectly reasonable to expect a restaurant to have its doors open and they are closed. In fact, I found these reviews while looking for their hours because we're headed to Peoria tonight with the intention of dining at Sushi Gawa, and the last four times we've tried them they were closed. I don't want it to happen again. It's frustrating because they are such a good restaurant.
I would like to say that this was an excellent restraunt. The food was good and filling and the atmosphere was great, and the waitresses were very helpful and they smiled and greated you with feeling.
I would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a carefree good time. The bill very resonable.
Just try it and you will be hooked as well and remember try the plum candy at the end. :)
Great sushi with a contemporary atmosphere. By far my wife and I's favorite place to eat in Peoria. Prices seem right and the service is fast and very friendly.
We took some friends from Japan there and they said it was very good sushi. Their only critique was that it obviously wasn't as fresh as sushi in Japan. That and the candy they give you at the end is Korean evidently. :)
Being a sushi fan and coming from Dallas, which is famous for sushi I did not high hopes of finding good sushi in Peoria.
However I was suprised with the quality of food I had at Sushi Gawa. It is a small cozy spot with courteous service and excellent food. It does not have up-scale ambience, but I will certainly recommed this place to a sushi-lover.
I know a group of Japanese and this is the restaurant they choose for sushi. The interior is simple, but I'm not there for atmosphere. I'm there for good sushi. Take your taste buds on a journey and give them a try.
