Tallahassee~Sushi licious

Being a huge sushi lover I was wondering if anyone in the Tallahassee area has tried the new sushi place off of Kerry Forrest, sushi-licious (sp)??

  1. I have not. Let me know if you do. I tried the new one on Pensacola street but it wasn't that great.

      Sumo-sabi is a good substitute for running up to publix for a quick bite of sushi, comparible price and taste. Unfortunatly it doesnt come close to comparing to Osaka....

    2. I live close by and power walk behind the place (how else is a chowhound going to stay svelte?) Sushi being one of the few things I won't/can't eat (long story) I have not eaten there but I do have friends that love sushi and really like Kitcho in Market Square.

        I recently had a bad experience with Kitcho's. The food was good, but we got completely ripped off in the $$$ department.
        We went for a birthday party. Five of us split, probably 7 rolls, and each of us got charged at least $40 a piece. Not being familiar with the place we couldnt really argue our way out of paying the high bill. So if anyone goes there make sure you write down what you get to avoid this happening to you.

      2. Went to Sushilicious last weekend and it was very good. They serve thai as well as sushi/ japanese dishes. We really liked the owner Lee, who was preparing the sushi (quite effortlessly) and giving us his history. He was the chef at Osaka before going out on his own. He even let us try some fresh tuna that had just come in. We had four big delicious rolls, sashimi, and bbq squid that was excellent. The lettuce wrap appetizers were too spicy and a little dry for me, and were not easy to eat. The sake we tried was a bit expensive ($12 a serving), but we enjoyed it. The restaurant is a bit small, and I don't think they could accomodate a large party, but we sat at the sushi bar and were quite impressed with the sushi making and service. Given the poor service at Kitcho lately, the mediocre and over trendy atmosphere at Masa, we will go to Sushilicious again for our next sushi fix.

          I'll have to pass this along to my fiance. He loves sushi, but usually resorts to Publix.

        2. We skipped the heavy brunch next door at Ruby Skies on Mothers Day and had an early dinner here. Before we liked Kitcho's but we'll go back to Sushilious again before we go back to Kitcho's. Jasmine downtown is pretty good too.

          1. Sushilicious is the place where you want to go for great sushi. I tried white orchid roll the other night, and it was really good. Also had tuna tataki as my appetizer, accompanied with asahi beer. I really enjoyed it!
            They have plenty specialty rolls you can choose, but if you still can't decide, you can ask the chef to make your special request. Cool.

            1. I've been to sushiliscious several times since they opened and highly recommend it. The sushi is always fresh and presented in imaginative ways and the variety is hard to beat. I didn't realize Chef Lee was from Osaka, no wonder their sushi is now second rate. Kitcho's sushi,in my opinion, is the best in town but Sushilicious' is a worthy substitute.

                We ate at Sushilicious last night and while the sushi was fine (for Tallahassee) the Thai food and the kitchen were dreadful! The Pad Thai noodles tasted like they were made with Bar bQ sauce?? really bad! And the person who ordered it didn't get her food until everyone else was completely finished. We also oredered the larb gai--lettuce wraps, for the table for an app and they never came at all.

                I guess the point is to go back but only order the sushi.

                  Sad to say, we too went this weekend, and they seemed a bit overwhelmed. We had the satay app. which was really dry and boring. Again the sushi was great, but the service was off, and they served the sake in plastic wine glasses...not what you expect for the prices. We'll be back, but like for the poster above, we'll go back only for the sushi.

                  1. re: masala maci

                    Must have been the convergence of the fishes. We ate there Friday night. Had the Fire Dragon roll for app. Was good per their usual sushi/roll rep. I had the special calamari salad which was very tasty but a bit overwhelming with the sesame seed oil and carrots. Also had the larb gai (maybe I ate janqita's). I'll pass on future orders. filling was flavorable enough but I was expected something more exoctic than a steamed wedge of iceberg for the wrapper. All I needed was a gob of Russian dressing and I'd had the "house" salad at any old steakhouse/country club. Wife had the udon. Noodles were Okay and tempora seemed lite enough. Service was spotty. 3 tries to get an ice tea. I was half way through the larb gai which came after the calamari before my wife's udon arrived. All tables and 3/4 of the bar were filled and it looked like only 2 waitresses working. but a whole bunch of people hanging around the hostess stand. We'll probably be back as it's 10 minutes closer than Kitchkos' and I've had poor service there recently too.

                  I agree Kitcho's sushi is the best!! they really know how to flavor the rice and the owner is Japanese. He really knows his stuff. It's been around since 1990! They consistently offer the widest variety of the freshest seafood including the exotic stuff (quail eggs, uni, baby octopus) as well as great standards ( blue fin tuna, king salmon etc) Just ask Yuichi, the oner and he'll whip you up traditional specials you can't get anywhere like nato!
