Best sushi in South Jersey?

Looking for a good sushi place in South Jersey. Any recommendations?

  1. Matt ito's place fuji in Haddonfield is by far the best. Sagami in Collingswood is good too.

    1. I'm a big fan of Oh Yoko. I went there last week and had an awesome meal. I ordered a sashimi platter that was presented on a carved piece of ice. Pretty cool...

      It's husband and wife who own the restaurant and they are super friendly. I like that they make their own soy sauce and the wasabi is fresh.

        The owners are too friendly. I've gone for a late lunch when the rest. is empty. For every mouthful I took, I was asked whether it was good. This happened twice. Over bearing

      2. I agree with cwdonald about Fuji in Haddonfield. We think it is outstanding.
        We love sushi and sashimi, and the quality and preparation of the fish has spoiled us for other places.
        Some recent specials have been lobster spring roll (wow!) and an amazing salmon ceviche.
        Matt's cooked foods are also excellent, which makes this a good place to take friends who don't eat raw fish.
        The place is lovely, and the service topnotch.

        When we can keep ourselves away from Fuji, we do enjoy Mikado on Route 70.

            Fuji in Haddonfield hands down. Matt and his son Jesse are skilled at accomodating allergies,
            preferences which they do not forget when you come back again and again. They never cease
            to surprise us, and we have lunch very often. My latest fave is raw scallop, which I had only recently. Excellent value for top notch quality. I got spoiled away from eating elsewhere.

              Anyone ever drop Matt a suggestion about opening somewhere in the city? Sounds like he would kill it here.

                His Haddonfield location is his second location and is bigger than his previous one. They are family run, do a great business and I don't think want to be in the city... I do like how Jesse has begun to take more responsibility in the restaurant.

                  Hey, those of us stranded in the restaurant wastelands of South Jersey need at least a FEW good places to eat out too, without having to cross the bridge! Philly's got enough choices without stealing what few we've got :P
