1st time to ever go - will NEVER go to this location AGAIN. – I am a Sushi Zushi fiend. I get the same thing every time....crawfish dynamite (an appetizer). I came into this location (alone), was invited to sit at the bar and ordered a drink. I ordered my crawfish dynamite, and ONLY that....after 20 minutes I was wondering where it could be....they were not full (this was on a Sunday at 6:30)....nor were they even close to being on a wait. After 30 minutes, the manager and bartender "noticed" I hadn't gotten my ONE appetizer that takes all of 3 minutes to make. The bartender told me they were a little backed up and that it would be out in a minute. After 45 minutes, it finally came and the manager said he would take it off my bill. I was going to order more, but this experience completely ruined my night. I felt completely neglected (even though I was sitting right in front of them, and was the ONLY person at the bar) AND he still charged me for the appetizer, not the drink, did not try to make the situation better and certainly did not try to invite me back. It was the worst SZ experience I have ever had. I will NEVER come back to this location. EVER.
Delicious as far as I know – I often judge a place based on how delicious their salmon skin rolls are...
They were delicious, I haven't expanded beyond their sushi or sashimi, so I am wouldn't be a good judge of that. But the food that I have eaten there has been yummy!
nothing I had smelt like raw sewage! O.o!
Run away from this place! – Went here for dinner and was served expired food that smelled of sewage! When I brought it to the servers attention he validated their intention by saying the vendor hadn't been there in several days!!! This guy then tried to charge me for it, not to mention the worst service I have ever recieved at a dining established by a server with 2 year tenure... This place is gross-
wonderful sushi experiance – over the past year and a half my husband and i have spent a great deal of time at the restraunt downtown and have NO bad experiances. there was a particular manager who might i ad is is no longer there that made the experiance a little less enjoyable but never as terrible as written by some of the other commentators. I'm sorry to say it folks but never have your expectations set too high at ANY restraunt, you're going to get your heart broken. Also the attitude that you project is going to affect the service you get, no one wants to wait on a snotty know-it all...sorry it had to be said, i'm a waitress. Also, in coming to a southern state in search of quality sushi, please realize there are going to be ingredients supplemented to suit the locals, not all business is strictly sushi experts. Anyways! The restraunt is fantastic. The servers are hospitable, funny, and attentive. the back of the house crew is prompt, and although not ":authentic" japanese chefs at the downtown location, they are incredible weilding a knife of that proportion with such skill and training, and if you're still not satisfied have a chat with either of the managers and i promise you'll have a smile on your face by the time you walk out of the door. Thank you for your time folks, enjoy the wonders of downtown SA!
Absolute Horrible Service – My friends and i came to San Antonio for a vacation, we asked our hotel staff what's a good sushi restaurant around here and she recommended Sushi Zushi. So we came here to give it a try. First walked in, we didnt know if we were suppose to seat ourselves or wait?...looked around if there are any host or hostess...none...waited for like a minute then we just sat ourselves..
The Menu was HUGE..there was a lot of sushi that wasn't much different from each other..
When we got our food it was mediocre...nothing great about it...my friend didnt get his food yet...and everyone else did...and i asked our server where is his food...he said it's coming right now...all my friend order was a sashimi assortment..which should be the easiest and fastest to come out...he waited another 10 minute for it..then it FINALLY came out. My other friends and i already finished our food when his food just came out. And on top of that, he got my other friend order wrong..but she said it's okay.
It was a horrible experience...we just paid the bill and hurriedly left the place. Never are we going back there again.
Sushi Zushi is certainly not for the connoisseur. – If you enjoy traditional Japanese ambiance and affair this is certainly NOT the establishment for you.
The menu was over bearing and confused. The restaurant has the atmosphere of your standard fusion. But there was nothing fused to it. Just blaring industrial music, non-Asian cooking staff. (Including the "Chef") Rude waiters and most discouraging no pre-meal beans.
If you know the difference between Sashimi and Sushi, skip Sushu Zushi.
Note: This is all my opinion based off my personal dining experience at Sushi Zushi.
OVERRATED - Average Sushi and TERRIBLE SERVICE – I love sushi and I love to try new places all the time. I've lived in Austin and Houston, and I've always wished that San Antonio had more sushi offerings. I went to Sushi Zushi expecting similar quality to some of the upscale places I've tried. The best thing about my trip was probably the hostess as she was the only one who paid attention to our party. After being seated, we waited 15 minutes for WATER and another 15 minutes for our waitress to finally show up. I almost got up and left because the restaurant was relatively empty. The waitress acted as if we were wasting HER time and did not even know anything about the menu. Several other waiters and waitresses passed by and noticed us just sitting there and didn't bother to ask if we'd been helped. Regardless, we ordered anyway because we felt like we owed it to the time we spent waiting. When the sushi was brought out, I was terribly disappointed. At their price point, I expected fresher fish and better quality preparation. The eel was overcooked, and the salmon sashimi tasted old. While Sushi Zushi seems like a trendy sushi spot, it definitely did NOT meet my expectations.
Other than TAO in Vegas, the ONLY place I ever eat Sushi! – I've tried a variety of different Sushi restaurants here in San Antonio, all unsavory - But the first time I went to Sushi Zushi on E. Basse, I fell inlove. The service is wonderful, waiters and waitresses are very friendly, polite and attentive. I'm only a fan of Maki-Zushi, so it's rare the time that I order otherwise - The LIR Roll, Spurs Roll, Las Vegas Roll, Spicy Salmon/Tuna/Crab Rolls - MY FAVORITES, among others. It is ALWAYS clean, bathrooms are spotless. I don't know where the critics that previously submitted their reviews ate at, but it was definetly not the one on E. Basse. I highly recommend Sushi Zushi on E. Basse - It has now become my FAVORITE restaurant in San Antonio!
avoid th is place! – Horrible sushi and horrible serivce!!! The fish is POOR QUALITY, food that was supposed to be hot was really cold, greasy and flavorless. The waiter (Mike) clearly did not know ANYTHING about the food he was 'serving' and is either REALLY stupid or had an attitude. This dump also charges the same prices for sushi that you would pay in a quality sushi restaurant in SanFrancisco
Do not take a "sushi virgin" here! – My fiance and I are self-proclaimed sushi experts-no thanks to Sushi Zushi. This was the place I tried sushi for the 1st time 4 years ago, and I thought I hated sushi. They use too much cream cheese in the rolls, the fish freshness is sketchy, and it is far from authentic. If you want truly amazing sushi, go to Yokonyu downtown or, for a little less money, go to Koi Kawa on Broadway.
