Aurora >Sushi Katsu
Overall GREAT. Food was amazing although I think they should work on their customer service a little bit better but, overall it was a great experience.
Sleazy Businessmen, No Longer the Best.
-Inexperienced chefs squeeze gobs and gobs of rice together, resulting in disgustingly warm sushi with a low fish to rice ratio.
-Take a sushi expert with you, for they often pass off less expensive, but similarly colored fish as expensive, dinner-only halibuts. This incidence is evidence of their sleazy business tactics and as a customer, I no longer trust them.
-Friendly greeting, but sub-par service
I agree with F2252...
Although the AYCE is a good deal, the service was horrible. The restaurant was pretty empty, but it took almost 40 minutes for our order to come out. And what's worse, they didn't give us what we ordered.. -_-
When we asked about it, they said they had run out and instead gave us something else.... which is not at all what we wanted to eat.
I understand restaurants could sometimes run out of certain materials, but i thought it was extremely rude of them to think they could just order something else in our stead.... very poor judgement.
I also think they need to work on their rice. There was not enough rice vinegar or something... it did not bring out the flavor of the fish as well as I would have liked. They also tend to give you a huge lump of rice and small sliver of fish when you order AYCE. I suppose they're trying to fill you up with rice or something.
Did we just get the worst server or has this restaurant changed?. Anxious to show off a neighborhood restaurant to friends/associates for a casual, business dinner, I suggested Katsuya (the reviews were outstanding - couldn't wait). They were busy but not completely full. We had to ask for menus and we shared 2 for the four of us. We were in no hurry but didn't know who our server was (and we had made reservations). After one hour (I looked at my watch), someone from our table stood up to ask if there was someone to take our order. Our server came, took our order but I could see our friends were very unimpressed with the restaurant and were reluctant to order anything but a cooked dinner. Had I not read reviews, I would have been skeptical to order raw fish as well...pretty poor first impression. We had no napkins or eating utensils. They did bring some paper napkins and chopsticks when asked but other tables had cloth napkins. Did they just run out? Food was good but my salad was delivered 10 minutes after the rest of our party received their food and the server never did bring my miso. There was never an apology or explanation. The experience was so disappointing and for me embarrasing. When we first arrived, our friends talked with anticipation about other wonderful experiences at sushi restaurants...too bad this wasn't one of them.
Probably the best Japanese restaurant in town.
I went there for lunch. It's worth every penny! The test is excellent, foods are fresh, and the place is in good hygiene. In addition, I don't have to wait for too long to get foods. The waitress and staffs are polite. And, the price is reasonable.
All in all, this reataurant will change your mind-set that a good japanese reataurant doesn't have to be freaking expensive!
Best Sushi in Town and not ridiculously expensive like some of the downtown places.. I've been looking for a good Sushi joint and this is it. Great cuts, great service, this place is really good and I have yet to get a "fishy" piece of sushi. If I had to complain about anything, it would be that I have to drive pretty far to get there but....it's totally worth it, every time.
Best Sushi I've had- EVER!. I've had sushi around the world and this place makes the best. So many choices. Excellent friendly service.
Best Sushi in Denver by far. I have eaten at sushi joints all over the world. I have been eating at this place since the day it opened. The first time that I stepped foot inside, the manager greeted me and was very nice and outgoing. We got to talking and he ended up serving me my meal. I sat at the sushi bar, and was immediately indulged in excellent service. EVERYTHING in this place is good, from the miso soup to the Toro. The seafood is fresh and prepared as if it were an art-form. The presentation far exceeds anywhere around here. I eat there twice a week now! A must try!
Incredibly Fresh!. Katsuya has such a wonderful ambiance and welcoming atmosphere- You're greeted by the whole staff as soon as you walk through the door! If seats at the bar are available, definitely have a seat if you want to see some real talent. The quality and freshness is next to none and I highly recommend trying this place out! Get there before 6:00 to enjoy the 2 for 1 authentic sake bombers!!!
Good and plenty plus Friendly and no wait!.
Work mates have raved about Sushi Katsuya, so last week I had lunch there.
I got seated and pleasantly greeted immediately.
With such vast sushi choices, it will take me a while to try it all. I am adventurous when I know the chef is this good, but not everything is going to be your favorite!
The Havana roll was generous in portion, but soggy in result. The tempura quick fry lost it's crunch under the chopped scallop mix.
Young is always finding new presentations, just look at the number of unique selections.
I wish happy hours extended earlier though.
