  1. Good for the price. Its more like fast-food and there is no sushi bar. I usually get a Rainbow roll for about 8 bucks.

    1. I like it, it's worthwhile if you're in the area. It is a quick-service place in the same vein as Pei Wei, where you order at a counter, take the number chit they give you, clip it to a pole on the table, and they bring you your order. Eastwind is owned by the same people who bring us Tokyo Express and the wonderful Cherryblossom Noodle Cafe.

      1. Try Shogun @ PV Mall. Great Turkey salad, katsu, sushi....
        A trird and true favorite. Eastwind is on the pricey side for cafeteria style Asian food.

          how does the price compare? eastwind seems expensive if it's mediocre.

            I haven't been to Eastwind, put Shogun is the best sushi value in Phoenix. It's solid and dependable sushi at a great price.

        2. I've been to Eastwind a few times. Huge portions, and pretty tasty. Try one of the soups. I forget what it's called, but the one with fish broth is really interesting.

          1. anyone tried the bento boxes?
