Excellent sushi, very pleasant sushi chef, very reasonable prices for the quality of the food. Nothing fancy but it worths the money

Noda offers a pleasant, relaxed ambiance with friendly service and good food. The lunch box combinations are a good choice. The same options are offered at dinner, but for a few dollars more. The sushi is fresh and there is a good variety of specialty rolls.

The chefs and other staff of Noda are sincerely happy to see you when you enter the restaurant. The sushi is good. We were impressed how some of the fish was cut. Try their mackerel. It is a much softer taste than in most other sushi places.

Compared to most sushi places, Noda has a pretty limited roll selection. Looking for a small tuna or salmon roll? Not here... their rolls are mostly the "specialty" gargantuan rolls, and even then, there are only a handful on the menu. But don't get me wrong, the sashimi and miso soup were still very good.

Hasn't been Mizu-Zushi for several years now... I believe its current incarnation is called Noda. Unspectacular but serviceable Japanese food.
