Our son first introduced us to Dragonfly Sushi. I had to let him order for me, as I didn't know what anything was. We had a sampling of several things, names of which I do not remember, but everything was great.

Best sushi in Gainesville. The service is sometimes slow, and there is usually a wait. The sushi never disappoints. It’s always fresh and delicious. My fave is the Cobra Kai and Fresh Garden.

The decor is pleasant, service is very good, and the food is excellent. Busy even on a week night. Appropriately priced.
