What's the sushi scene in Providence?

I don't see a lot of sushi discussion in Providence. What's good? Anything truly special? All I've really seen mentioned is Ten Prime and Sakura.

  1. Haruki East seems to be very good, at least according to my sushi loving friends. I like it too, but am no connoisseur.

    1. I second Haruki East. For a much more low key and slightly less expensive option, we enjoy Uncle Sushi in Cranston.

      1. We also always go to Haruki East, but like Jenkins, I'm no expert.

        1. Haruki and/or Haruki East are passable. Nothing else is worth eating, if you want sushi. If you want "sushi" novelties and overpriced drinks, go to Ten Prime.

          For good sushi in the Providence area, go to New York.

            Kaizen in Sturbridge has had good reviews. On Rte. 20 in the antique strip. 40 minutes from Providence, granted, but no need to drive to NYC. Baba Sushi in Worcester just won major accolades this year - the other end of the 'barbell" for the Blackstone Valley.

              Thank You! Baba Sushi looks pretty exciting to this eye and quite a bit closer than NYC.

              I think that's a *bit* harsh but accurate overall. While Haruki is the best it's by no means exciting, and we have no truly excellent, transendental sushi here. The restaurant sushi here is a step above supermarket in my opinion.

              There are one or two very good places in the Boston area, but for life altering sushi, its indeed NYC.

                I have to agree. We have not had sushi in prov in over 2 years (first stop in nyc)

              2. I'd vote Haruki overall, but for me, Tokyo gets the slight edge in terms of variety.
