Went her with the alluring thought of rolling my own sushi. Not as glamorous as it sounded after all. We were a party of 12. Staff friendly and efficient. Everyone got something different, some good some not. Simply spicy tuna roll good. Miso soup too.

This is the third time I've eaten at Mobo Sushi and according to my wife this is the last time we'll be eating there. The food was passable but it was nothing spectacular. We ordered the Nabeyaki Udon and an order of ebi tempura. As...More

I came here with my kids on spring break. The restaurant is clean but lacks some ambience. The menu is full of really good stuff, but we were unfamiliar with some of the vocabulary in the waitstaff wasn't very helpful with us. The sushimi was...More
