I live three and a half hours southeast of Albuquerque and we often travel up there for pleasure. We always go to Shogun (been there at least 10 times in 4 yrs) that's up further on Central ave. For once, we wanted to try a new sushi place. With all the wonderful reviews that Sushi King got, we decided to go there today. The service was wonderful! We got our food quickly in a timely manner. I ordered Shrimp tempura udon noodles and the Monkey Ball. They were so delicous! But the other items, which were all sushi, was awful. The sushi rice was too mushy, too soft. too sweet. With sushi, the rice is very important. The fillings were ok, but the sauces, like the eel sauce, was too sweet. My #1 rule to sushi is to eat everything that we order. This time at Sushi King, we didn't eat half our order. We didn't even take it to go! I am a sushi fanatic! Everywhere i go, like to Hawaii, Japan, Guam and big cities here stateside, I have to try a new sushi restaurant. I have to say sushi wise, Sushi King ranked the lowest. If you want good sushi, TRUST me, go to Shogun up further Central Ave. I always left satisfied with my plates empty. I give it 3 stars because everything besides the sushi was good.
I have been to Sushi King about 10 times and everytime, except for once did the food not agree with me. I'm an avid Sushi fan. Since I discovered this place, I would only go there. Although I had a not so good (because it was not that fresh) plate of sushi, I will still go back if someone recommends to go there. I love the Miso soup, Caterpillar roll, Rainbow roll, Philly Roll and garden salad w/ ginger dressing. The Plum wine also always hits the spot as well as the Green tea. Sushi King is in a great location- can't beat being close to downtown and a movie theater. Sushi King remains my 2nd fave place to eat. :O)
I would have to say that is is one of my favorite sushi places in ABQ. The NM Roll and the Monkey Ball are my absolute favorite here. They have these at other sushi places in town but they don't compare. I am excited to see that they have opened up one on the West Side.
Food was ok, but way too expensive. And they gave us the wrong order. I would suggest Sushi & Sake (Korean BBQ) at 3200 Central if you're in Albuquerque. Their all you can eat special for 22$ can't be beat if you love sushi.
Wedged between 1st & 2nd streets is a place called Sushi King. The street location, entrance, ambiance and atmosphere reminded me alot of the hole-in-the-wall Sushi Bars in New York. The service was prompt and courteous almost to the level of pampering you'd find at a 4-5 star resort in Scottsdale. ---I ordered an Unagi, Caterpillar, Spicy Scallop and Dragon Roll. All of these were made with the proper proportion of ingredients however,... with the exception of the Unagi rolls,... they all fell apart when I dipped them in my 80% Wasabi/20% light soy sauce mixture :o( REAL Japanese Sushi isn't supposed to fall apart. -That's how you can separate the good Sushi Bars from the GREAT Sushi Bars. Instead of using true Sticky Rice, some places add sugar or honey or molasses to their rice cookers to simulate the stickiness,... --I guess, if you're looking for an American-ized Sushi Bar, you probably wouldn't know the difference between what qualifies as Good Sushi and REAL Authentic Japanese 'style sushi. --But other than that and, the slightly higher than average pricing (probably due in part to their rent, payroll and misc overhead issues),... the atmosphere, service and presentation were A1.
