Anyone know the best deals on sushi around the city? The only places i've been are Jun's, Domo, and the new place downtown, Nara. I love Jun's and Domo, but I think i'm going to go broke from eating there so much and would love to know about any special happy hour deals or all you can eat specials around town. I seem to remember Sakura on Nieman road used to have a $20-25 all you can eat on Tuesdays. Does anyone know if they still do that? Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

    I am a big fan of Sushi House. They have a couple of good chefs there and I have a good relationship with them. I also like Ichiban. My friend has a good relationship with Chang, the owner and chef. The decor is lacking though. I am not a fan of Sakura or Jun's. I have found the service to be less than friendly.

    I am very curious about Nara. I have heard one good review so far.

      I've been to Nara twice now and neither time have been impressed. Other than for cocktails, I doubt i'll go back.

        What did you not like about Nara?

          Neither time have I been impressed with the quality of fish or the prices. It's been awhile, but it seems that the prices paid for nigiri or sashimi were a little on the high side for what you got. The place just really seems more like a hip place to hang out downtown (not that there is ANYthing wrong with that) rather than a great sushi restaurant.

      Try Friend's Sushi & Bento Box on 39th street across from Jazz. On Monday nights they have $1/piece and $3.99 for rolls. Pretty good for the price.

          That sounds like a great deal. I have been to "Friend's" on a few occasions and I was always happy with the service and food.
