Sushi in Dearborn

I have been looking for a real sushi bar- not the overpriced club menu from Crave. Does anyone have any great places in the area? I usually drive all the way to Noble Fish in Clawson but would like something closer.

Thank you!

  1. Not to be a twit or anything, but I've a feeling that any recommendation short of Noble Fish is going to fall short enough that you'll wish you'd made the trip anyway. That being said, I know of no sushi places in Dearborn. Even the Crave thing was unknown to me.

    Noble Fish is well-known as the best in the area for a might as well just make the trip, since you know anything else won't measure up to it. Sorry.

    1. Ate just once at Black Pine Tree on Eureka in Southgate and thought it was pretty good. But since the closing of Oslo there is a wide-open space for sushi in downtown Detroit or points south/southwest. A quick sushi chef in a little storefront could make a killing off the lunch crowds in Detroit or Dogbone. Supposedly the new Asian Village restaurant (next to Ren Cen) called Fusia is going to have sushi if they ever finish it.

        YES. Black Pine Tree is your best bet from Dearborn. Nothing pretentious about it, just good yummy sushi and anything else your heart desires.
        Um, Noble Fish is good, but I've had far better. Nami (Ferndale) is also incredible, but do give Black Pine Tree a try. 10% off on Mondays.

          "Um, Noble Fish is good, but I've had far better. Nami (Ferndale) is also incredible"

          If Nami is the place I'm thinking of (on 9 Mile?), and you think that that's better than Noble Fish, then we're just going to have to agree to disagree without being disagreeable.

          Noble Fish is the freshest stuff around, they supply many places locally with the sushi they serve (and have the gall to call their own!), plus the authenticity of the in-restaurant experience is quite refreshing instead of the over-Americanized sushi experiences to be had elsewhere.

          Not familiar with Pine Tree. I'll have to try it.

            Noble Fish is wonderful! I agree it's the freshest.
            Maybe Nami has changed a bit with the evolution of sushi-loving eaters in the tri-counties; I admit I haven't been there in a few years, but, man was it amazing back then.
            I'm just pleased that no one mentioned Little Tree in Royal Oak. Yuck, blech, and yuck again.

            Please do try Black Pine Tree. It's easy to miss it, but easy to get to, if that makes sense. It's the only place for sushi around Dearborn (aside from Crave), but we'd go there even if it weren't.
