It is a great place with sushi worth every penny. Volcano and rock and roll are the best! Great atmosphere. Sometimes it gets busy, specially at Saturday nights, so I would recommend to make a reservation in advance to you don't have to wait for your turn. And the parking, well, you have to find parking on the street which sometimes may be a little hard. But really, every sushi lover should try the sushi there.

The quality of the sushi is excellent. The all you can eat special at $17 is insane value. It also includes appetizers to choose from. The wait staff can come off as unaccomadating at times, but they're really just focused on keeping things moving. On weekend nights, the place gets packed, so even if you have a reservation at a peak time expect to wait. Go a little earlier and you won't have a problem. The fact that it is also BYOB with no corkage fee makes this place awesome.

I really can't complain considering it's $17 all u can eat with a good variety and by the time you're done eating you've likely eaten many times your monies worth!

There may be better sushi places in the city, but none with better bang for the buck. $17 gets all the sushi you can eat. There's lots to choose from - a bunch of appetizers, many kinds of nigiri, lots of maki. The spider roll and sapporo roll are two of my favorites, but truth be told, they're all good. If you go all-you-can-eat, hang on to a menu if you'll want descriptions of some of the maki. Service tends to be attentive and friendly. Out of easily thirty visits, all but a couple have featured great service, where we've had water and tea refills well before emptying our glasses. Food comes up when the kitchen is ready, large numbers of takeout orders can make it a little slow. I tend to go during off-peak times - the all you can eat lunch is a few dollars less than dinner, if you go on a weekday, and there are nicely priced lunch specials - so wouldn't be surprised if service moves from leisurely during a busy evening to slow on a jam-packed Saturday night. Ther'es only so much two sushi chefs can do. The restaurant gets noisy during full-swing service on weekends, but if you go early, it's a great place for a leisurely meal and quiet conversation. Sit at the sushi bar if to indulge your appreciation for the art and craft of preparation and presentation. The place only seats around 50, so if you have a large group, think ahead... prepare to be patient, and try to arrive before peak hours. If it's busy and you're hungry, order some miso soup or a house salad to get a little food coming right away. Atmosphere is nice; not particularly romantic, but cozy enough. Lots of honey oak, for tables and wainscot. Interesting soffits, due to being in a garden space. It has a few cute touches that could border on kitchy (what Asian restaurant is without bamboo, paper lanterns, and the waving kitty?), but the whole place is clean, finishes are in good repair, chairs are comfortable, and tables are stable.

Sushi para has probably the best chefs and food ,but manners of the staff are lacking. They are very invasive and customer unfriendly .

We had a 7:30 reservation but had to wait for an hour!! The staff did not apologize for the inconvenience. The food was good but what's the point of having a reservation when you have to wait so long?
