The Lunch Combination (Bento Box) offered a huge amount of food. I usually get the chicken teriyaki; you also pick which chicken teriyaki lunch combo like sushi with it or gyoza. the lunch also included soup, white rice, salad, and more. :)

This is a heavily frequented sushi spot, especially for the Asian diners. It offers many different combinations of sushi, sashimi, and teriyaki selections. The serving size is generous and one would not leave the place still craving. It gets very busy during prime dining hours, especially on Fridays and Saturdays.

Huge portions. The miso soup was delicious. My aunt loved the albacore. I had the seaweed salad, which was a huge mound for the price of a small lump.

Almost a hole in the wall sushi place, authentic, no frills or froo-froo nonsense. This is not Nobu! Hungry sushi lovers will love this place. Be prepared to spend some time figuring out what you want on the large menu, but don't choose anything too exotic. Waiters are friendly, efficient, but very busy. Dinner for 2 hungry people was less... More

Tremendous portions can be expected here. They emphasize salmon and tuna heavily. Good reason to do. Their salmon chin appetizer grilled to perfection. Double salmon rolls yummy. The enormous number 1 rolls need two persons minimum to finish. Finally a new favorite, the mountain roll, deep fried tuna roll with spicy seaweed salad on top sends the heat !!!! You... More

Old Town Sushi is a very tiny restaurant, basically a hallway with tables. The food is quite good and the portions are very generous. No one in my party could finish their meal, doggie bags for everyone.

Spectacular servings, too much food but I like too much!! Food was on point, yum and filling plus staff were friendly and accommodating. We had to wait for a table, they are that popular and more were waiting after us. This place gets two thumbs up from me!

Went for lunch on a weekday. No queue and got seated immediately. We ordered a bento and a sushi plate. Both had generic servings. Very fresh. Found it amusing that the people manning the counter were Chinese (spoke Cantonese I believe) rather than Japanese. Overall a good place to eat Japanese food.

The Nigiri sushi portions are generous. I had (4) 2-piece Nigiri selections as well as a San Francisco roll and a Philly roll - all good. Service was also good. My check (no alcohol) was about $40 with tip.
