Think "the soup kitchen" from Seinfeld. Go into this as an experience. Yeah, he is abrasive...I could see him being rude. However, this was the best sushi I've ever had and it was mind blowingly affordable. Just tell him you are local, sit quietly and...More

Wow - if you are a tourist in Nashville and want tasty, affordable sushi, try this place. But BEWARE: the owner is a grump and doesn't like tourists - at all!! He will come right out and ask if you're a local or a tourist....More
