Popped in a hungry fury a few months back with my bf. He grabbed us a couple rolls while I sat down. I was impressed with how fresh they were and that they offered brown rice rolls. I didn't realize at the time how expensive they are! Went back in today, got a 9 piece (really tiny pieces) tuna roll with a small portion of edamame for $9. The rolls were still good, but ice cold. My bf tried their ramen for $10 and was unimpressed with the tough meat, overly oily broth and subpar noodles. We'd have rather hiked over to Menchenko! Will never return.

A weekly visit to Mai Sushi is a highlight. Spicy Salmon Chirasi is the meal I usually order, but I will switch it up sometimes with their soup or take out (front of store). The mai sushi combination is also delicious. The entire company eats here now - weekly - and I keep recruiting more!

Mai replaced a beloved establishment run by true Japanese professionals whose lunch specials were spectacular! What happened to them!? Mai tries to be like the former restaurant but the quality is truly disappointing and it is NOT fresh! It tastes like sub-par sushi that you can get at a grocery store chain and is no where of the quality that the previous owners had them. I am very disappointed to say the least and wish the former owners will reclaim this establishment and bring back those wonderful sushi prepared by professional sushi chefs and lunch specials that were delicious and well priced! Please come back!

There are three components to this understated clean establishment: take out containers of sushi, rice bowls (country style), a hot bar take out/eat in with tables for self serve clientele, and a small restaurant in the rear complete with dark wooden and paper room dividers. The food up front is moderately priced, mid sized sushi assortments ranges in price from 3.75 to just under 10 dollars. The hot bar by the register has tempura, pumpkin is GREAT @1.60 a piece not to be confused with the 3 for 1.60 okra (I was under the impression that ALL the tempura was $1.60/3 until I carefully examined the small sign). There is also chicken Teriyaki (very good, filling with rice at an extra cost) and small fried chicken plates to stay or go, miso soup that is very good as well. The restaurant in the rear has a great Bento box for lunch for $12, that is kind of pricey, but has an assortment with a choice of chicken teriyaki and tempura and other items I can not recall at this writing. There is also a nicely presented salmon teriyaki platter with soba for 9.95 that was very nice; both are served with soup and salad. The sushi seems very nice but I have only had the included cali roll (not my personal favorite, I'd like to see a choice of roll at the premium bento price, perhaps a spicy tuna or eel variety). Overall, its a great experience, been there a few times for lunch, many japanese patrons especially on that block for some reason, there are 3 japanese establishments, all very interesting and worth a try. You wont be disappointed, but don't expect cheap food, you're paying for good ingredients and a clean establishment.
