      Fresh fish, like wilafur said. Long lines. Huge cuts of fish, almost too big. I've always had nice salmon there. Definitely try the Seared Ono (escolar) sushi - it's butter. The sushi chefs are very nice there.

        I can't STAND this place, and I know I'm in the minority. I find the sushi to be borderline inedible, and the atmosphere depressing.

          Cupcake, this place is definitely not sexy as it's a place just for lunch b/c its close to my work. what do you find inedible? have you had the salmon or seared ono? this place is for sushi eaters that want morefortheirmoney. you can easily get full for $20 b/c some of the pieces of sushi are huge - like the unagi sushi - nearly 7" in length. there people who like sceney sushi places, strict-nazi like sushi places and all you can eat sushi places. this is the bargain bin place.

      Fresh fish, generous cuts, great prices, nice employees...an excellent choice. "Depressing" atmosphere is a little harsh, but I'm certainly not at Sukura to evaluate design choices. On another note, my heart sank a little when I saw a full page spread today, could possibly translate into longer waits, however... I'm still not staying away!!!
