Disappointed. After having heard wonderful things about this restaurant, my husband and I decided to try it, even though the outside looked a little doubtful. We have visited just about every sushi establishment in the metro area, and do consider ourselves fairly knowledgeable about sushi. The sushi was just average, and by far not the best we have had. It definitely didn't live up to the stellar reviews I had heard. As far as the ambience, there was none. I think it might have been better with some music. (Believe me, we are not fans of the super-trendy and hip sushi restaurants that are springing up everywhere. This did not affect my opinion.) We will not go back to this restaurant, because it wasn't anything to get excited about. We have our own "best kept secret" in Arvada. We'll never tell!!
Our little secret. I am hesitant to post this as this is our oasis on the west side of town but I've never been good at keeping a secret. When we first started eating here we were one of two occupied tables, however the last time we were there the place was packed. We were a little hesitant we we saw a hand painted sign on Colfax that read "SUSHI" with an arrow pointing down Nile St. Like Tante Louise, this is a converted house turned restaurant. If you are tired of the snobbery at some of those other pretentious pas se places and you just want some excellent sushi with some great service you should get this a whirl. Every friend or family member we have brought here has been pleasantly surprised.
A Hidden Jewel. I tried this place after some friends from work visited here. The sushi is top notch. The prices are equivalent to any other quality sushi place. I would rather go here then some other den, and you don't have to wait in line or put up with all the "beautiful people".
