“Sublime sushi”
Review of San Shi Go

San Shi Go

Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 February 2017

I am of Japanese descent and am used to excellent sushi and tempura. This ranked among the best I've had. The vegetable tempura was crisp and not greasy. The flavor of the vegetables came through well. The sushi and sashimi were tasty and fresh with some seasonal offerings. There is no children's menu but the children at a neighboring table did well with some teriyaki and fried chicken from the appetizer menu.

What a great menu. The tofu melted in your mouth and the seasonal menu was extensive. Everything was delicious. Sake seemed very expensive, but the Japanese beer went perfectly instead.

Ordered the omakase to celebrate 12-year anniversary with wife. Besides scoring some points, thanks to hiro-san's guidance, the 'off-the-menu' fish was probably the best I've had at a state-side Japanese restaurant. The restaurant is pretty nondescript, but don't be fooled. This place is the real deal. If you're looking for fresh fish from Japan this is the place. If you're looking for a bento-box 7.99 special showered in teriyaki molasses go elsewhere.

The fish at San Shi Go is always very fresh. The sushi chefs are very creative with their rolls. It is not fancy but the food is very good. I love the Blue Crab hand roll, it delicious.

The best Salmon Lemon Roll, I would go back for the Sashimi Kinka Mackarel and halibut Sushi. We were a group of 8 and we got out of there with tip for 350 no alcohol included. We order 33 total servings and ate from 17 different options. I would go back.
