  • Sushi Happy Hour 4-6pm

    Multiple dates available
    Sushi Happy Hour features an entire sushi food menu that is discounted to "happy hour" prices. If you are looking to eat a lot of sushi, this is a good way to bring a couple of friends and be very happy with the pricing of all dishes. Our food, fish and rice are of the exact same quality and type served during regular dinner hours. Matching the food, there are great cocktail and sake offerings. We also invite you to be able to enjoy any of the Alta Strada Happy Hour cocktails as well! It's a win-win deal. Sushi happy hour ends at 6pm, which means that any orders after 6pm must be from the dinner menu etc.

    I loved how the portions were reasonable. I personally prefer small portions so I can enjoy multiple dishes without the feeling of “we ordered too much”. Staff very friendly and always checking in. Food was very tasty as well.

    First time visiting this sister restaurant of the now defunct Nama Ko. Familiar menu items. Nots as extensive. Priced lower than Nama Ko. Sake list is affordable. Dined at Sushi counter. Had enjoyable meal. Staff were friendly. Small neighborhood gem.

    Inauthentic experience (loud Spanish music), perfunctory service, high prices, the sushi was of moderate quality. Even though we were the only people in the restaurant the food took an inordinately long amount of time to be served.
