Binghamton, NY area sushi?

jujuthomas Aug 30, 2007 04:15 PM

We're going up to visit family this weekend, and I wondered if there are any good sushi/japanese restaurants in the area. I know one just opened recently in the holiday inn over by SUNY B, any reports on it?

    There is a small Japanese restaurant in the Price Chopper Plaza on North St. In Endicott, that has good sushi, so I have been told. I have heard that the sushi is very well made, with a big variety on the menu. Not sure what the name is, although it used to be "Sake Restaurant".

      I'll have to try there next time, thanks! We ended up at Kampai - my stepdad has known the owner there for 30 years or something. The sushi was ok, I wasn't crazy about the things I ordered. I will say that their spicy tuna and spicy mayo are HOT! probably the hottest I've had. Next time I will try different maki and get some sushi pieces.

        I was going to edit my post above, but for some reason cannot. I want to say that my husband enjoyed the sashimi he ordered at Kampai very much, but didn't think the salmon was as nice as some other places we go.
        I ordered the volcano roll, which hubby enjoyed, but I thought was too loosly wrapped and the presentation was sort of messy - they piled the pieces all up like a volcano. We also ordered the hot mama, which was very tasty. It was shrimp, avacado and spicy mayo. I think there was something else in there, but I can't remember. My mother ordered the carly roll, asparagus, mushroom and avacado, which she enjoyed very much. Beyond that tho, I had the hibachi chicken. After I wished I'd ordered more sushi - because it's better for me. ;-) ANYWAY, I think if I'd ordered different items (ie not the volcano roll) I would have liked it more.

      Believe it or not yes Wegmans , I observed quite a few customers who seemed to be enjoying the sushi that they were eating.Also in Endicott there is a Chinese place with both a Chinese American menu as well as Chinese (like in Chinatown NY away from the tourist area ) menu called Moon Sun or Sun Moon

        I think you are talking about Moon Star? I don't remember seeing sushi on the menu, but the food is excellent.

        Kampai on the Vestal Parkway also has sushi.

          I have had sushi at Wegmans, it was not bad... I was hoping for a little more atmosphere. ;-)
