I hadn't been here and years and stopped in on the way up to Austin.
It was great. The sushi was very well prepared and the service was very good. The atmosphere is also nice.
The only downside is the price (but that's the same at any high end sushi place).
I was very worried about eating sushi, but once I found out they had fried sushi, WOW It is the best food!!!!! Great service and I LOVE the green tea. I have not had an issue getting a table in less than 20 minutes. You can reserve a table ahead of time FYI. Recommended to everyone.
My wife and I love sushi and we probably eat it twice a week, so tonight we went to Sushi Zushi for dinner. We were told it would be a 25 minute wait for a party of 2. I can deal with that. After 30 minutes, I checked with the hostess and she said there were still several tables ahead of us. After 1 hour, I checked back again, as it seemed a bit ridiculous. I also heard from others that they had been waiting well past their wait time. I explained we had been waiting an hour and the hostess disagreed, saying that it had not been that long. (BTW, its better for her to just apologize than argue the point - Customer Service 101)Then after showing her the time on my Blackbery that I had sent an email while already waiting, she suddenly remembers that the computer clock is 13 minutes fast. Yes, she actually said 13 minutes. So we eventually get seated and not 5 or 10 minutes later I see the manager talking to the hostess, whom my seat happens to be facing. The manager Chris (as I later learned his name) claimed that she was just explaining what happenned. But when I see the hostess with her cell phone out, re-enacting what I did, both of them laughing, and glancing over at me.... Well, it doesn't feel like you are explaining what happened. It feels more like getting mocked, made fun of, etc. Chris (the manager) and I made eye contact with each other as he laughed and glanced over to us. He knew I had seen them laughing about it. That probably explains why he made himself scarce in that room until we asked for him after we finished our meal and had paid our check.
Mr. Manager, not ok to make fun of customers after they have already received terrible service. Also not ok to allow your employees to do the same. Not ok to ignore that you got caught doing so. And also not ok to not come talk to us after our waitress told you we wanted to talk to you. While I am at it, teach your disrepectful hostess how to properly estimate wait times.
The food is fine, but I can promise you.... never again. Well done Chris!
I've eaten sushi all around the country and think both coast have the best, so I didn't hold out much hope for San Antonio Sushi. The cutzie name and young liquor-shooting crowd weren't inspiring either. There's no true sushi bar but they will serve sushi at the bar. Overall I was very impressed. The Sunomono was generous with a good combo of octopus, crab and shrimp. The maki sushi of tuna, yellow tail, and salmon were fresh and nice sized if a bit too much rice. Uni (urchin) goes bad fast but turned out surprisingly fresh and sweet as promised by the bartender. Overall a 7 out of 10. A bit less rice would have bumped up the score a point. I'd say Zushi's is on par with good sushi found on the coasts with prices to match.
We loved this place, but when we called recently to place an order, we were shocked at how much the prices have gone up. One of the rolls was previously $8.50 and is now $12. The total bill was about $10-15 more than it was a couple of months ago. I don't know that we'll go back.
Just moved from Japan, lived there for 6 years and have tried 4 different places, so far this is the best Sushi place in San Antonio, and my Japanese wife agrees, of course only talking about the real stuff, do not care for California rolls or other American hybrids, but pure fish/scallop/tuna best
there is, but I must say the spicy sushi is pretty good!!!
I'm from CA, where we know good sushi, and this isn't it. It is expensive, and the food is mediocre, at best. I don't know what they coat their crunchy rolls in (panko?), but it certainly isn't tempura or tempura flakes. Our service was slow, there weren't any acoustics so the room was noisy, and the employees were a bit snobish.
