Great Sushi made by two Japanese guys – I always try to go and eat sushi made by the REAL JAPANESE people. This is one of them. Of course I am from Japan so I know when I taste it. Sometimes the server gives me the green colored tea...and I had to complain to the Japanese chef and he knew exactly what I was talking about. I wanted to have the good green tea to go with my sushi for lunch. Not just colored green water. But their Sushi is really good. I always ask the chefs, "What would you recommend today?" Did you know that they make their own soy sauce? I believe they mix with their soup stock with their soy sauce. So it is not just commercial salty soy sauce. It has a flavor!!! Price is very reasonable, too. I love it here. Too bad I don't live near by so whenever I visit Colorado I go to this place. Try it!!!!
Good Sushi and Service! – Sushi wave is one of our favorite sushi restaurants. Their sushi is pretty good in DTC area.
Jin is our favorite server. She is friendly and have good memories. We don't have to remind her "without wasabi" every time.
I wouldn't – I would avoid Sushi Wave. How many quality Japanese restaurants serve french fries with your meal? I had the salomon and the portion was minuscule not to mention quite dry. Rice was horrible, unfortunately it wasn't the authentic sticky Japanese-style rice. The quality is below average, but the prices are not. There are better options for Japanese food.
Love It! – Love this Place! The sushi is great - me and some co-workers have "Sushi Friday" every week! You really get alot for your money and tastes Fabulous!!!
Rice – Everything is fine at this restaurant, except one thing. They overcharge for rice. I know rice is expensive now, but they overcharge for rice and the proportions are underwhelming.
Message to Skweelz1 – I dislike arrogant people. People are not oriental unless they are objects. I guess only the uneducated trash calls them Oriental. Maybe those people should go eat their own countries food if they don't know the proper terms. And also who compliments miso?
Other than that. . .the resturant is clean w/fresh tuna!!!
Server # 2 still has an attitude – Have been to this restaurant several times over the years. Have had mostly decent service, however, the food keeps me coming back. Have ordered to go food many times as I usually don't have time for a sit-down meal. The sushi is good as well as the miso soup and box lunches. Recommend the salmon fatty collar. Waitress #2, an oriental woman in her 50's has waited on us on more than one occasion. The first time we overlooked her snarly attitude chalking it up to a long day. However, every time since she has displayed the same attitude so now we realize that it is part of her character to be snotty and short w/her customers. When my son and I last ate there a few weeks ago, we ordered a to go lunch for my daughter. I paid the bill and tipped before tax, but not including the to go order. I've managed and worked in restaurants before and this is standard practice. As the service was good that day, I tipped around 17%. When we were going to our car, the waitress came up to us and asked us if the total we tipped was correct. I said yes, it was, and to clarify, mentioned that it is customary to tip before tax and that I don't tip on to-go orders which may have given her the impression that we were undertipping. I think she expected a tip on top of the to-go order. She shot us a dirty look and without saying anything more, not even a thank you, hastily went back into the restaurant. This is probably the last time we'll visit Sushi Wave, even though the food is good. Service can make or break a restaurant and the manager would do well to hire someone else w/a more pleasant attitude who actually enjoys working w/people.
She doesn't seem to enjoy people and we wondered how she gets along w/the other waitstaff who have always been pleasant enough. Not sure what the problem is, perhaps she's burned out, but we think she'd do better behind the scenes or elsewhere. She's not a happy camper.
Largest pieces of nigiri I've seen in Denver area! – My group goes to a different sushi restaurant every month and January's was Sushi Wave. What a treat! They had the table for 20 ready for us with complimentary edimame. The servers were great and even let us have separate checks. Now to the sushi, it is definitely one of the top we have gone to so far. The presentation for the Dragon roll and catepillar roll was fantastic. Monday's they have happy hour prices all day but they don't skimp on the size of the fish! As I said the nigiri was fresh, and big enough for 2 pieces instead of 1! I heard the Dynamite roll was fabulous so I'll have to go back and give it a try. If you a sushi lover, give this restaurant a try, you'll keep coming back!
Best Sushi in the DTC area. Excellent fish! – I've worked in the Tech center for 12 years now, and I've eaten at all the sushi restaurants. Sushi Wave consistently has the best quality fish, and an excellent selection of rolls. I've never eaten here for dinner, but lunch is never crowded, and the service is excellent.
The Dynamite Hand Roll is the best i've had in Colorado, and a must try!
Also, they have recently started doing sashimi tataki style with thin sliced jalapenos.
Miso is also tastey here.
Best kept sushi secret down south! – First off... I do not like sushi! But most of my friends do so I have eaten at many around town, and I really like Sushi Wave! They offer a variety of other choices besides sushi that are very good. The value is exceptional and the location is fabulous for those of us Centennial dwellers. The service is always good (although we do go there quite often, the server never really acknowledges that he remembers us!?!), and from what my friends tell me, the sushi is quite good, if raw fish and seaweed, garnished with fish eggs is your thing! I usually get a tempura dinner or multiple appetizers, and my friends get the different "wave" options on the menu (different types all for a good price). The presentation is very good too - especially their caterpillar roll and volcano presentation. Overall, highly recommended for both sushi lovers and their non-sushi friends alike!
