I hate to write a poor review, but I am always honest about what I see and how it goes. I moved away from Columbia for the last 5 years. I use to love going to Sake Tumi. Now that I moved back I was looking forward to taking my girlfriend there for sushi. we went on Friday night and just wanted to order a couple of rolls before we walked around the Vista. We decided to sit at the sushi bar to make things easier and to get in and out.
We sat down and noticed that the bar leans very bad and is in need of repair. so much that we moved all the way to one end to keep our soy sauce from running down the bar and onto our laps.
We ordered drinks. I was given a 22oz Sapparo in a can. My girlfriend a glass of wine. Her wine glass had about 5 sets of lip prints on it. I asked for a glass but the server never brought one. She used a napkin to clean her glass and I drank from a 22oz can.
We were sitting right in front of the guys making the sushi rolls. Their conversations were that of young guys not appropriate at all in front of customers. Let alone a female. They were likely college guys, but the language was in really bad taste and about some of the other female customers seated at the tables. Please know that we are not uptight. I was a bartender in college and still like to have a good time.
Everything was pretty dirty. When we walked on the floor our shoes were sticking as we walked. All of these things above made us just get a few basic rolls as we were scared to branch out from that. We ordered a shrimp tempura and a spicy tuna thinking if we keep it simple and common we were safe. The guys behind the sushi bar actually said loud and clear "you can tell when people don't know anything about sushi, they order the tempura and tuna rolls". We laughed it off, but it was certainly insulting. I have to be honest though...the rolls were very good.
Should the owner/management read this and care to improve the situation I would suggest some repairs and cleaning would go a long way. Then look at who was working last Friday. The two young guys should not be representing your establishment. The older gentleman was not involved in the conversations I referenced above. Either way, I am very sad to say that one of my old favorites and now disgusting and I will not be returning. Neither will my friends.
