    I've eaten at two other locations several times: The Domain in Austin and in Dallas. Everything was better at those locations. The 5th St location in Austin wasn't as clean; they were understaffed which contributed to the slow service. Two of the rolls were rather small compared to the other two locations I've visited.

    I have been to this place on a few trips to Austin and each time I go there the food and drinks are great however each time there is a 1000point reservation the restaurant does not seem to want to honor these reservations. I arrived to the restuarant on time and within the guidelines for a 1000point reservation. The first time I was NOT awarded my 1000point reservation however this time I wanted my 1000 points and contacted OpenTable and I was awarded my points.

    We came in for lunch. I am always happy with the sushi, which uses fresh, quality fish. My dining companion found her noodle dish so-so, but was looking for a low-cost lunch so she was satisfied. Our major concern is that the food, especially the sushi, appeared VERY slowly. Our server was nice and did his best, letting us know that sushi would likely take 20-30 minutes (the restaurant was 1/3 to 1/2 full). In the end, it was OVER 40 minutes before I got one maki roll and one hand roll. From here on out, we'll use the Domain location.

    We were seated at a great table that happened to be near a door that appeared to not be in use. About 15 minutes into our meal one of the customers decided to use it to pop out to smoke and use the phone. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but it was about 30 degrees outside. On his second trip out one of the employees rushed over to us and asked if we would like to move. We assured him we were fine, but I really appreciated his attention to our comfort.

    Sushi Zushi has never disappointed with their food, but at this point the restaurant needs some freshening up. It's bad when the menus are so dirty you don't really want to touch them. Our server was fine - a bit too casual for me, but he did his job well. Wish there were more signature rolls without cream cheese - seems like such a cheap filler.

    If a sushi chef asked me what I would want in a perfect sushi roll it would be Sushi Zushi's Spy roll. So I didn't have to make it up myself Sushi Zushi already thought of it for me. Plus there is probably a dozen other items on the menu that are out of this world. Love the creative of their Sushi Chefs at Sushi Zushi. Love both Austin locations. The one in the Domain knows my dog by name and that he loves carrots, I don't even have to ask for water or the carrot they bring them out when we sit down. Love the care the servers take with the human and canine customers.

    Had a rare date night out with my husband while someone watched our kids. We moved here from florida and I love sushi but have been so disappointed in finding a good sushi place here in austin until now! The sushi was delicious ! Ate until I was stuffed! Drinks were delicious had the black berry smash from the bar it was excellent. And service was awesome. This will be our regular sushi place!

    I was a little surprised by the low ratings for this restaurant. My colleague and I came here for lunch and we had a good experience. We both got the chicken katsu (safe dish) and really liked it. We also got the pot stickers which were delicious. For the price, the food here is very reasonable and we will surely return.

  • Cannot handle large parties
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIP
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    I go to sushi Zushi in the domain and in San Antonio all the time without issues. The one downtown messed up our orders and some food never came out and others had food when everyone was done eating and paying the bill. I never got a refill either. They simply are not trained to handle large parties. I also had to ask 3 times for them to check me in on open table. The domain location checks me in and by the time I get seated I already see it on my phone. It would take a lot for me to ever come back to this location.

    I usually just go there for Happy Hour, however, I was hungry for "dinner," so I ordered the salmon teppanyaki...absolutely delicious! And, quite a bit of food, with leftovers for lunch the next day. The hot saki was a nice accompaniment...which, during the time I went was still during happy hour (3-7) so was inexpensive.

    You would not head out to buy a Rolex with a Casio budget. Of course you can find a knock off in that price range but it will not leave you satisfied. The same goes with Sushi. That being said, the prices at Sushi Zushi are very reasonable and their sushi left my group very satisfied. The waiter recommended and we all highly approved of the following Rolls: Godzilla, Flaming, Cozimo, Awesome, and Cajun.

    My husband and I were in Austin for the weekend and wanted some sushi. This place was close by so we tried it. It took a little longer than expected for our rolls but the food was really good. There were only two other tables there when we got there so I expected it to be quick. But I would absolutely come back!

    Sushi Zushi is a decent sushi restaurant. Our waiter was ok. He messed up one item on our order. On the other hand I'm gluten free and he tried to be as accommodating as possible with that. One thing the restaurant could do better is their gluten free menu, it has the items all listed on a page in the back but all of the descriptions of what the items are are in the front of the menu so you're flipping back and forth trying to find items and it can get very confusing. It might be good to just put all the descriptions in a totally separate menu for gluten free people.

The service was helpful and attentive, and incredibly informative giving us great recommendations on food an beverage items to order.

    I have many dietary restrictions, so dining out can be a challenge, and incredibly frustrating. Luckily, our server, and the kitchen at Sushi Zushi, surpassed our expectations and brought out everything exactly as ordered. The menu has pages and pages of rolls, which could be a little overwhelming, but which also provides something for everyone's taste. The quality of the sashimi was very good, and the cuts very thick for the price. I will definitely be going back!

    We went on a Friday evening for early dinner. The ambiance was average, a little strip mallish but nice. Our service was very good, the waiter timely and attentive. Decent wine list. Food was delivered well. The only unfortunate part about this sushi restaurant was the sushi. Every dish and every roll had so many ingredients or sauces or dipped and fried that they were a mish-mash of flavors. Sushi for people who don't care for sushi.
