I went to Ami Sushi several months ago, but somehow this review escaped me. Although the names of some of the sushi has been forgotten, my memories of my visit have not faded.
While there we ordered three rolls, egg rolls, and mochi ice cream for dessert. The egg rolls were average, served hot and fresh, but slightly bland flavors. The sushi was pretty awesome. We ordered their baby lobster roll, which my boyfriend loved so much he ordered a second roll, their french kiss and one other roll that I cannot recall its name. All of them were fresh and packed with flavor.
One downfall to the rolls, was that they were a little loose so they would start to fall apart while we ate them. Also, in regards to the baby lobster roll it was on the small side compared to other places we have been and was more expensive. In fact all rolls were slightly more expensive then surrounding sushi places.
This was the first mochi ice cream I have ever had and I was pretty impressed. A nice little treat after a big meal. Cold, smooth, and strawberry flavored refreshing. It made me a fan and I look forward to trying other flavors and other places.
The service here was nice and the waiters were very attentive. We were the only ones there so I can’t be sure they are this great with a crowd. The food was fresh and well prepared, but a little over priced. I wouldn’t be against coming here again, especially if friends recommended it, but as far as a regular place I will stick to Sake Sushi up the road.
