This beautiful little restaurant was awesome, the staff was very nice, and the food was phenomenal! Almost didn't want to post this - don't want too many people coming and spoiling it.
THE BEST! This restaurant is incredible. Fresh fish, beautiful rolls and a warm atmosphere. I'm very picky when it comes to fish, but this place has never let me down. You won't find a better place for the price than Sushi Ai in Colorado Springs. Enjoy!
Alas, in the case of Fujiyama, two strikes and they're out. My first experience there was very lackluster. Friday Night ultra-busy, but still with a cool vibe. Unfortunately the service was horrendous and the sushi only marginally better. 30 minutes to order, 1 hour to be served, and no checking in to see if we'd like more drinks. So chalking it up to it being busy, I tried again last night for a birthday celebration and experienced the same inattentive service and mediocre sushi.
Some of the best and most inventive sushi I've ever had! Sit at the sushi bar where the chefs are very friendly and typically offer samples of rolls to try next time we come in Ask the bartender for their killer cucumber martini. All the rolls I've had are a must-try, but especially the Lion King and Monkey Brains! Plus--half-of sushi on Mondays--you can't beat that.
I have been here a few times and would have to say the food is okay. I would have to say Jun's is a lot better though. The service at this place is not as good as many other restaurants. The young gentlemen who served me seemed like he was out of it or high and smelt of cigarrettes. If I were you I would just either get the food to go or go somewhere else due to poor service.
My favorite sushi restaurant in the Springs. The restaurant itself isn’t anything fancy, but the sushi is top notch.
I was very surprised to see a 20% tip automatically added to my bill after what had been a wonderful meal. I asked to speak to the manager about this who told me that this is their policy at the sushi bar due to customers not tipping. I have no problem tipping, but it’s at my discretion based on service, not theirs based on bad customers! I will not eat there until this policy is removed!
For those of you who've been to Miyake in the past year or two most can concur that it was not what it once used to be. I walked in deciding to give it another go only to be greeted by a young man behind the sushi bar instead of Ms. Miyake. ITS UNDER NEW OWNERS! I thought to myself and decided to give him a try. He didnt dissapoint. The dining experience at Miyake's can be summed up in one word, phenomenal. I love the chef's Hachi-Roku roll (Asparagus, cream cheese, spicy scallop, and tilapia) other rolls which are good are his spicy spider, delicious roll, and his rainbow temaki. I plan on trying everything he's got. Service is great and the back of the house is excellent at what they do too. The ribeye steak is buttery good and the tempura is a good choice too. Desserts that must be tried are the tempura cheesecake and the tempura honey dragon<--- favs =). I have to say I've found my new place and everyone should try them too. Way better than the previous owners I'm glad to see Miyake back up and running. *MUST GO*
You haven't had sushi 'til you've had sushi at Jun. Always fresh fish, ginormous portions and absolutely the most special 'special' rolls. Try the blind date roll (tempura jalepeno in the center), the classic yummy roll (salmon and avocado on the outside) and the soft shell crab hand roll. To Die For. Beautiful presentation, every meal starts with Miso soup (not a given most places any more) and you can top off dinner with a scoop of green tea ice cream. Jun is sushi in this town and both locations have the same great quality food, chefs and servers... ambience is better at the newer Centennial location but don't let that sway you if you're on Academy!
