Would have given this place a 3.5. Good Matcha tea, California roll was just ok. Would not go back if I had other choices nearby the hotel.

I have had sushi in Boston, NYC, Washington, SF, LA and Ando is among the best. Authentic. One of the marks of a great sushi restaurant is Uni and he has outstanding Uni. Ask for the Japanese menu. Always a selection of Japanese special fish....More

Ando has excellent sushi and sushimi. They have many other Japanese dishes and one may even get a nice steak. It is owned and ran by a Japanese family.

Only ate here once, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Friend of mine who is Japanese swears it is the most authentic sushi restaurant in the Greater Cincinnati area (personally, I couldn't tell the difference between other good sushi restaurants). Very small restaurant with limited seating--always...More

Don’t think so. It’s not a Japanese Steakhouse type resteraunt. Much more about the food than the show. Plating is fine but your thought upon receiving your food will be “What do I want to start with” not “I need to take a... More
