    If you go, let me know. I was curious too.

      We went Monday night and enjoyed it. There are a number of unusual rolls on the menu, plus a choice of Korean items. I loved the kick of the kimchee soup. Service was very good. I'd go back. My only complaint was they sat us under a noisy air conditioner.

      Was this the old Sushi Rays? For Cincy Sushi Ray's place was OK, is Dancing worth the trip?

        Yes, it's the former Sushi Ray. I thought it was good, but didn't blow me away. Some interesting rolls on the menu. If you live on the East Side, you might try it, but I wouldn't come in from Tri-County or Northern Kentucky for it.

        I still haven't made it there but I hope to soon. Have you tried the Green Papaya yet? I love their sushi...

          We went to the Dancing Wasabi again Saturday, and it will be the last time for a while. The sushi was good; we liked the Crunch Roll. Tempura was just okay -- not enough vegetables and the sauce was tasteless. The service was pretty lousy. Ordered two soups, waiter brought one. Ordered sake, and the waiter never brought it but didn't forget to charge us for it. He seemed more interested in two attractive young women at the bar than in keeping up with us on a crowded night. Not a good experience.
