Re: “Fujiyama

If sushi is your thing and you want to wear yo bling, this is the place to see and be seen for the best of oriental dining! The sushi bar is extravagant, delicious, hospitable and friendly. Desert for me, last visit, was soft shell crab in some crazy magic sweet sauce! YUM Be there or be totally sushi dish square.

Re: “Jun Japanese Restaurant - Dublin

I love Jun's. I've been going there for 3 years. My Japanese instructor recommended it (she's native Japanese) and I love it. I lived in Japan for a short while and crave authentic Japanese food. Jun's does a damn good job keeping it as authentic is possible for American tastes. I've never had a bad experience there and the sushi rolls are always excellent.

I always get a nice warm (and traditional) "いらっしゃいませ" when I walk into their establishment; it feels like a little slice of Japan.

Re: “Sushi Ring

I love Sushi Ring! This is the best, and freshest sushi, as well as the most value for your buck in Colorado Springs. Elvis and crew are the friendliest and most generous folks group of people. Go there once and you will be remembered and greeted by name the next time you come back. Also keep in mind that they will continue to offer you more and more, because they want to make sure you have eaten your fill. They really treat each one of their customers very special. The best time to go is evenings, where for a small price, you can have all you can eat made to order sushi. I recommend the upside down shrimp and the octopus cucumber salad. Tres Parfait!

Re: “Kura Japanese Restaurant

We lived in Japan for three years and consider ourselves to be foodies, visiting restaurants at least 3x a week while there. We learned the language, took time to study the cuisine, and visited some of the finest establishments in Japan. By no means experts, we are widely experienced enough to recognize a "good" sushi restaurant. Given the limited choices in Colorado Springs, Kura happens to be one of the best -- along with Fujiyama downtown and Tomo on Academy. Kura is the only sushi joint in town that has a Japanese-born (and speaking) waitress and they sport the second-best sake menu in town (Tomo's is the best). The Mu sake with sashimi is well recommended, but their California rolls are awful because they use a salad mixture instead of separate avocado / crab / cucumber. HOWEVER, California Rolls in nearly all Colorado Springs sushi restaurants are are terrible for the same reason. The service is always quick at Kura, the menu includes lots of non-sushi items for colleagues who don't want sushi (the gyoza is good), and the price vs. quality ratio is right on. Now that we have kids we go out only 1x a week but it's Kura sushi 2 out of every three times we go out. Try the Mu sake and ask for it served in an ice bucket.

Re: “Jun Japanese Restaurant - Dublin

Jun is the best in town. Yes, it doesn't have the best atmosphere but the sushi its out of this world. Good pricing, large portions! We go there every other week and the waitresses take very good care of us. They even remember our usual order. Fantastic sushi!

Re: “Tomo Sushi

The quality of sushi is amazing! The consistency is amazing! As an additional plus they have the most extensive sake selection I've ever seen! Junmai daiginjo grade sake... not at all easy to come by in Colorado! Fantastic!

Re: “Fujiyama

Half price sushi and rolls Mon thru Fri lunch. Mon Happy Hour 5-6 everything on the menu including liquor half price. The place is insanely mobbed so go early and expect poor service, but what the heck-its half price. The food is good, when you finally get it.

Re: “Fujiyama

I love this establishment, now that some of the old employment staff is back, i'm back to feeling at home. Jenny, the sushi chef, is simply "Divine" & an "Artist". For a downtown eatery, everyone is as friendly as can be, as if I were a long lost family member. The sushi is fresh and unique, especially for the timid un-adventurous folks. And though it may seem chaotic, the atmosphere is visually serene, upscale, and exquisite and, not to mention, Mondays & happy hour, wallet-friendly. I'm relieved, stuffy downtown Colorado Springs, is keeping it authentic, and yet, orient- chic. As for the past comments, try again, try. I think you'll be more satisfied with the improvements.

Re: “Miyake Sushi and Mongolian BBQ

The Mongolian BBQ is first rate and at a good price. The Bento boxes are good and filling. I enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the food. The owner always greats us with a smile and remembers my husband and I from the times we had come before. I would definetley try this restuarant.

Re: “Sushi Ai

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!

Re: “Fujiyama

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.

Re: “Jun Japanese Restaurant - Dublin

My favorite sushi restaurant in the Springs. The restaurant itself isn’t anything fancy, but the sushi is top notch.

Re: “Miyake Sushi and Mongolian BBQ

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*

Re: “Jun Japanese Restaurant - Centennial

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!
