Aloha Sushi on Charles is one of the better sushi bars in Balto. I went last week and had dollar sushi, which was excellent, and twofer one Sake's from 5-7p, which I think is every day they're open. We were not the only ones there. In fact, it seemed very popular with the Univ of Balt crowd-- lot's of couples and students doing their "law school" homework. Fun! The staff was very friendly, albeit with some language barriers. But that said, I'm going back tonight . . . to get my dollar fish on!!
After reading that article my wife and I went last Monday after having a drink at Brewer's. We didnt get there until 8:30pm on a Monday. With that said, we were the only people in there. Just us and two servers. Crappy 80s music playing and a TV over by the bar with O's game on, we opted to sit by the window. They gave us a small ginger salad and Miso soup on the house to start. Sushi was average. Can't remember everything we had, but I know we had white tuna sashimi, salmon sushi, and a few specialty roles. I also ordered the Spider Roll (softshell crab) based on the Metromix review of sort of liking it. Overall I wasn't impressed, sushi seemed average, and the Spider roll was covered in Roe, too much for my taste.
Not sure if I would go back, probably not considering Minato and XS are just blocks away. See pic attached of our meal.
