thoughts on Osushi at the Westin?

  • r

I am considering trying it out, but never like to waste time at an average sushi joint. Freshness is my most important factor.

  1. I think the sushi is OK, but overpriced. I would opt for Douzo less than one block away for a much better all around experience and some very fresh fish.

    1. I've always thought the sushi was decent, with some solid sake choices.

      1. Went last night. Sushi was more expensive than average, and quality was less than average. Fugakyu is still my favorite.

        1. their presentation (e.g., spider maki) is better than Douzo's, but since Douzo opened, we've gone there instead because they've got more interesting rolls...e.g., red spider maki, snow mountain, etc.

          1. I've always found it decent if not a little pricey (but hey, you're in a Westin) Stick to the nigiri and shashimi. I find Douzo trying a little harder to be hip than to serve great sushi, but I think I'm in the minority here.

            1. I was very disappointed by O Sushi. There was an odor to the place and fruit flies flying around the bar. Sushi was OK...would have had to been outstanding to overcome cleanliness issues.

              Perhaps another reason to avoid hotel food in general?

              1. I was there once and found the atmosphere fun and the food fine. One thing that put me off was that the waitress pushed the high-end sakis and expensive special without mentioning price.

                1. Sushi was average to mediocre the only time I was there. Sake list and silly sake-tinis were good.

                  1. Overpriced and fair. Careful when the waitress asks you if you would like the live lobster appetizer. Waaay over the top expensive.
