Is there good Sushi in Warren?

Is there anywhere near the Tech Center that is good for Sushi during a lunch break?

  1. Depends how you define "near" and "good":

    About a mile away is:
    Hero Sushi
    8443 Old 13 Mile Rd
    Warren, MI 48093
    (586) 838-4500
    But their sushi is no better than pre-packaged grocery store stuff. I would avoid this place like the plague. Nothing fresh, poor workmanship. Just not worth spending the money on.

    A couple miles away is:
    Crazy Sushi
    1454 E 12 Mile Rd
    Madison Heights, MI 48071
    (248) 548-8550
    This one isn't too bad, so long as you're sticking to the Americanized rolls, and not trying to order nigiri. It's your standard Korean-run sushi place; nigiri will be a complete disaster, but the ridiculous Americanized rolls will be like they are everywhere else. The fish isn't the best quality, but the freshest are the "popular" fishes like tuna and salmon and whitefish.

    And this one might be way too far (~5 miles):
    Edamame Sushi
    31632-A John R Rd
    Madison Heights, MI 48071
    (248) 597-4500
    I'd put this one about on par with the aforementioned Crazy Sushi. Decent enough if you're just getting Americanized crap, and not trying to make it out to be more than it is. The benefit here, though, is that they have a full menu of noodle dishes, stir fries, etc. if someone in your group isn't feeling sushi.

      Thanks, I'll probably check out Edamame.
      Glad I got the review of Hero Sushi, I had noticed it before and probably would have ended up trying it out.

        I, too, will say, simply… no, there are no good sushi places.

        I’ll add that there is Joy Sushi, if you happen to head north from the Tech Center, on your way home. (43743 Van Dyke Ave, Sterling Hts…@19+Mile Rd) I went once and never went back, but I don’t recall it being terrible.

        Also, there are a couple Chinese-owned places which serve sushi along with other Asian foods. One is Golden Harvest right across the street from the Tech Center (I’ve been many times, but never thought to order their sushi). The other is Shogun Steakhouse just at 37750 Van Dyke Ave, Sterling Hts (16 ½ Mile Rd). I’ve eaten sushi at Shogun many times. I won’t say it’s good, but my frequency of visits has to count for something, I suppose.

        Joy Sushi

      2. Don't forget the Fuji Buffet on John R between 13 & 14. I'm not a sushi expert but me and my boys thought the sushi was really good there, and unlimited!

          If you're coming that far from Warren, might as well head to Noble Fish in Clawson :)

          Noble Fish
          45 E 14 Mile Rd, Clawson, MI 48017

          1. re: coney with everything

            CWE, please Noble is crazy-crowded as it is. There's also Sushi-Do on Crooks between Long Lake & Square Lake-same owners as Noble & lots more room.

            1. re: schaf1

              Sushi-Do, I believe, has separated itself from Noble Fish. They still source their fish from Noble, but so do a lot of local vendors. Having said that, their food is decent, as is their udon. Service is quick.

              Cafe Sushi on maple (between crooks and coolidge) is a good alternative. They have a large variety of Japanese food other than sushi (try their Udon, its good too). Their fish seems reasonably fresh too.

              1. re: donbui82

                i like cafe sushi. go ther more often than sushi-do even though it is a couple of miles further from home.

                i also like mon jin lau - a bit more upscale of a place, but the bar area is a little more informal.
