I’ve long gotten Facebook posts about Sushi Groove and their unique atmosphere in their sushi restaurant and I’ve always wanted to check them out. They’ve always looked like a cool place to hang out with friends and enjoy something to eat and a few drinks.
Now I didn’t hit them when they were on their game during a jam session at night, but the quality was just okay for me. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t better than many places I’ve been to. You know how you have a roll at one of you favorite places that you dream about. I didn’t get that here. The quality was just okay. I tried a Orange Cali Roll and the waitress recommended the Maui Wowi Roll. The ingredients tasted fine, but nothing out of the ordinary.
This is an older store in an older part of town and I personally witnessed the employees going to great length to keep the food and prep area clean it is an older establishment and could use some cleaning up and organizing. On the other hand they are not a fancy restaurant and more of a hipster club so that’s not their model.
The service was good. Again it was typical for a normal restaurant. The staff was more than willing to explain things, but I just didn’t get warm fuzzies from being there. Again, I’d imagine the vibe would be very different at night when they have live music playing.
The price is typical for a sushi restaurant. They do have happy hour and daily specials that seem like great deals. I’d recommend following them on Facebook as you’ll be notified on periodic specials.
