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.
Consistently high quality fish and happy, warm employees. This small sushi place gets an A+ every time we visit.... Back again tonite with my teen daughter!
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.
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!
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.
I went there my first time and the expierience was amazing!! I felt very comfortable and the live music was so gooood. I tried the "HeartAttack", it was nice, hot, spicy!! I'm glad I found a nice sushi place in town.
Amazing food and decorations!! GREAT atmosphere and the service is excellent:D
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!
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!
Excellent & friendly staff, quick service, and delicious sushi/food...always fresh!
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.
I give this place 5 stars, forgot to post this rating.
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.
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.
Mouthwatering sushi, in a relaxing atmosphere, miso soup is outstanding as well.
Akasaka is the best Japanese restaurant in town. One Christmas we had their live lobster. Once the tail was eaten the waitress took it back and had their chef cook the rest of the meat into the best miso soup we've ever eaten. All of their specialty rolls are awesome, but i recommend the volcano roll to any spicy sushi lover!
I totally agree with comments about Akasaka's food and service, but disagree about people spoiling it. I've eaten there many times and believe it to be the best place for the freshest sushi in Colo Spgs. I say everyone should give it a try and judge for themselves.
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!
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.
