Re: “Sam's Sushi

#RIP Sams Sushi - as of Saturday he has closed the doors for good, selling all the restaurant equipment for a couple looking to open their own sushi restaurant. Customers received a parting gift with their more ample than normal orders - a solitary caramel chocolate candy. This place will go down as a place of Nashville legend. If you don't like it, get out.

Re: “Sam's Sushi

After reviewing the first post, I feel torn between a weird urge to take up for this place or to convey complete understanding of the previous reviewer's opinion. Sam's Sushi is the BEST sushi in Nashville. Hands down. No question. Cheap. Delicious. Fresh. GOOOOOOOOD. That said, Sam is, er....well..., Sam is direct. Sometimes, his abrupt communication style is taken too personally. Cultural differences between restaurant owners and the populations they serve may explain why some diners discredit the outstanding food quality Sam delivers. Quantity is a bonus, in my opinion. Food quality is guaranteed... as long as you don't get too sensitive when you dine out. :) Sam once told me that my last name means 'Shame' when translated as his native language. Honestly, I'm glad to know that the best Nashville sushi comes with a side of snarky truth. Laugh it off and enjoy the food. That's the secret to making Sam like you, by the way. As the other rules you should follow? Well, you'll see...... I think it's worth whatever you may experience. Happy dining! - Regina Hodge :)

Re: “Virago

I don't mind paying high dollar for good sushi; but the sushi here is just a small step above Publix sushi. If they're going to be that proud of it, they can keep it.

Re: “Samurai Sushi

Best sushi in the city! Always great food and atmosphere, service is a little slow; but you should never be in a hurry to enjoy sushi; have a little sake and relax and enjoy the day.

Re: “Peter's Sushi And Thai

Great sushi restaurant in/near the city. I've been to some of the more expensive/upscale sushi bars in the city, they are not even close to having the service, quality and freshness of sushi as Peter's. If you want to be seen go to the other places, if you want great sushi with good service go to Peter's.

Re: “Lemongrass Sushi & Thai

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!

I placed a pick up order for lunch- 2 orders of shrimp pad thai. I picked up my order and went home to eat but while eating my meal I noticed that there were only 2 pieces of shrimp in my entire order. I was VERY disappointed in the fact that I was charged an additional $2 for shrimp and yet I only received 2 shrimp. I called the restaurant to speak to a manager to make a complaint about the amount of shrimp that I received in my order but instead of assisting me and acknowledging the issue, the manager proceeded to tell me that it was "impossible" for there to have only been 2 shrimp. Despite my attempts to explain to her that I had in fact counted and confirmed the existence of only 2 shrimp, she denied the possibility that more had not been included. She essentially called me a liar and refused to admit any fault. I live down the street from the restaurant and I have been there on several occasions. I have even recommended the restaurant to several of my friends. I will personally be telling EVERYONE I know about this horrible experience and I will recommend that no one eat there in the future. I have never received such horrible customer service and I can think of better businesses in the area that will appreciate my money.

Re: “Watanabe

I thoroughly enjoy Watanabe for the service and the food. I always order panoply of sushi. I usually order too much, but I like having my own personal buffet. Their fish is top shelf! It’s the only sushi restaurant in Nashville that has real crab and Copper River Salmon. Even the more expensive sushi houses in town don’t offer real crab on their menu, and that automatically warrants a “B” review for them. I’ve indulged in some delicious daily specials – shrimp wontons with mango sauce to duck breast with cabbage in a red wine sauce. The drinks are amazing, with as much flare as Patterson House. The bartenders know how to make any drink you can think of; plus all the classics. They make their own syrups and also have an excellent sake selection. I’ve always had excellent service at Watanabe, and the bartenders are the friendliest in town.

Re: “Lemongrass Sushi & Thai

Every time my Husband and I go, we are greeted so warmly as we walk in the front door!

The food is always excellent, the saki is super, and the service has always been more that satisfactory.

We absolutely LOVE this little gem, and try to go at least once a week!

Re: “Lemongrass Sushi & Thai

I was pleasantly surprised at how good this restaurant was/is. I was first taken there by a friend and only went out of politeness....I have been back several times since and have enjoyed each experience. The wait staff is excellent and the food is over whelming. I am a big man and rarely leave with a "doggy bag"...this place I can not finish the monstrous portions.

Re: “Basil Asian Bistro

Not a bad Thai place, but I've had better. My meal was heavier than comparable ones at other Thai restaurants.

Re: “Samurai Sushi

Best sushi on the planet. Seriously. Try the specialty rolls with fruit on top. Crowd favorites are Choo Choo roll, Iron Miss roll, and Volcano roll. Even great rolls for those like me who do not eat raw fish or seaweed!try the Happy roll,Hawaiian, or Aloha roll. Made with shrimp or crab and wrapped in soy paper and topped with fruit! Amazing!
This place will spoil you!

Re: “Zumi Sushi Japanese Kitchen

Delicious! I just ate lunch at Zumi and was impressed by everything. The servers at the counter were very courteous and knowledgeable of the menu.

My chicken yakitori skewers were amazing! They came out a few minutes after I sat down, and they were hot, fresh, and delicious. My order came with five skewers, and they were garnished with scallions and served with a peanut sauce. The chicken was hot and juicy.

My sushi roll (Tropical Crunch) came out next. This roll combined eel and pineapple in a delectable combination. The savory eel and the sweet pineapple were fantastic complements, especially with the "crunchies" and eel sauce topping the roll.

Everyone at the restaurant was very nice, and I enjoyed my meal in the comfortable, fun atmosphere. I will definitely be back!

Re: “Ichiban

It's a MUST when we hit 2nd Ave on Saturday night. I highly recommend the Norway Roll with hot sake and green tea ice cream for dessert.

Best quality Japanese Sushi in Nashville, and the first place I have ever liked Thai/Chineese, must be gourmet style...

Re: “Lemongrass Sushi & Thai

I was pleasantly suprised by this new Thai/Sushi restaurant in Bellevue. The food is inventive and delicious The presentation is exceptionally beautiful. Each plate is a tasty work of art. The wait staff was quick and pleasant. The atmosphere is adequate but dont look to close or the shabbiness shows.

Re: “Watanabe

The atmosphere and decoration of Watanabe are nice and new looking. The service was not bad, but it wasn't necessarily good. The food and drinks came in good time, but the server just seemed to be dreading his time there. The food was bad. I have pork fried rice in February. In that rice were fava beans and corn. Those ingredients lead me to believe they are frozen. It was underseasoned, and just did taste like a nine dollar bowl of fried rice. Potstickers were okay, didn't appear to be made in house.
