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: “Fujiyama

Fujiyama has the best sushi but the service is poor. This might be the problem with the low tipping. Get hard working staff in there and this could be a 5 star place! The sushi chefs seemed to be better though a year ago. Staff changes frequently at this place. Thats not a good sign.

Re: “Jun Japanese Restaurant - Dublin

We visited Jun's for our anniversary on Sat Feb 5, 2011 and it was not very busy. Pretty snowy out. We read they had the best sushi so decided to check it out. Yes the sushi was good but the atmosphere was kinda run down. We were not greeted when we walked in and so did not know if we should seat ourself so we did. The server was preoccupied with a table of two customers. We finally got a menu and drink and ordered. Got our food but were never asked if we would like water or another drink. She came and checked on us once immediately after we got the food and then not again until we finished eating. Overall, I am rating a 2 star because to me service and atmosphere is also key to having a returnable experience. Unfortunately we won't be back.

Re: “Tomo Sushi

Love the place, have enjoyed going there since finding it in 2008. Solid performance, reliable service, delicious food, and 10% off rolls during happy hour have made me a dedicated repeat customer.

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

The staff, drinks and menu are great. It is my favorite sushi place in the Springs. However, I did sit at the bar several times and watched the chefs make the rolls. One of them does not wear gloves, but all the others do, including the owner. I know that some chefs do not wear them because it interferes with the creation process, but PLEASE, put some gloves on. This guy was handling raw fish, wiping his hands, every now and then, with this dirty, wet cloth. I am sorry, but I find it disgusting.

Re: “Fujiyama

To everyone who wants to go to Fujiyama, I'd like to fill you in on one of the arguments I've overheard while eating there. I used to like this place and had a lot of fun with the former bartender 'Joe". But, what I heard made me sick, and I will never spend another cent in that place. The Psychotic owner belittling the staff while she sat on her ass trying desperately to impress her "friends". She attacked the waitress and told her that she would give her a twenty dollar penalty for some reason. I was told that the restaurant takes a huge chunk of the waiters tips in order to get away with not paying the sushi chefs, who are obviously the only members of the staff the owners care about. I'm also in the service industry and know how hard waiters have to work to make their money. Not only do we have to put up with assholes who act like they have the right to put you down, but owners and managers constantly looking for a way to screw you out of our hard earned money. Im sorry to go of on a tangent, but its infuriating. If you do go to Fujiyama, please tip your server with cash, at least that way they might get to keep a little more.

Re: “Fujiyama

I visited Fujiyama this week and their 20% automatic tip (see earlier review) has been removed! I asked before ordering... :-). Glad to see this taken care of - the food is wonderful! Looking forward to 1/2 price Monday's!

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: “Sushi Ring

OMG this place is my new favorite in the springs. Last time I went to fujiyama on monday for the half off I STILL ended up paying over $90. Sushi ring has a great boisterous atmosphere, the sushi chefs are talkative and friendly and the sushi itself is great. For $25 you get your money's worth!

Re: “Miyake Sushi and Mongolian BBQ

I had the pleasure of dining at Miyake this week and really enjoyed the experience. John was very engaging and the sushi was fresh. I'll be back soon with friends and family.

Re: “Fujiyama

Fujiyama has an awesome rolls menu and the 1/2 price rolls and nigiri at lunch is a smokin' deal. Really unique selection of rolls, but a bit heavy on the fried and cream cheese options. I'd love to see more specialty rolls highlight the fish without the fried. However, that may be a preference they've seen from customers... just not mine. Some of the rolls didn't hold together great... seemed like they were either overstuffed or underwrapped and I ended up losing all the innards (ew... can you use that word in a food review?!) all over the platter.

Overall good experience, good flavors, good service. Love the miso and the seaweed salad.

Re: “Fujiyama

I give this place 5 stars, forgot to post this rating.

Re: “Fujiyama

This place is a great place to have lunch( 1/2 price items) , dinner, or just to have a nice date. The food is very good, we have implemented Fujiyama's into our place to eat at least twice a month. The only issue I have is that the wait staff does not take good care of the customer and this could turn off any 1st customer, have patience and give this place a chance, you won't be disappointed, try the Playgirl and Playboy, yummy!

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.
