One of our favorite places to eat! The food makes the experience. So many new and unique flavors in their dishes, and we tried lots of different items. It's one thing to do a dish well, but to introduce new flavors and do it well is another. Highly recommended.

Always great sushi and service. Extremely clean and the staff was friendly. Parking was easy and we did not wait long on the food at all. The temperature inside was very cozy and inviting.
Some of the best sushi in Lexington

This was my first time at School Sushi and we will definitely be back. The service was amazing! The food was fabulous. We started with the beet Rangoon, and the sushi, ramen and curry were represented at the table. Everyone loved their order. Highly recommend!

We made a reservation online and had a little bit of a wait (but this was during restaurant ‘lock down’ where you could only eat outside and they only had 3 tables outside and I don’t blame the restaurant because people were eating but not leaving) but it is was worth the wait because food was so amazing. We ordered sushi, katsu, pan fried gyoza and Ramen- everything came out promptly at proper temperature. Everything was amazing but I’ve been dreaming of the ramen all weekend so we will definitely be back for that sooner than expected. The staff was so nice and there were lots of carry out orders being prepared- they seemed to be adjusting well to the mandates and following procedures/health expectations seamlessly.

I always enjoy food here but My family and I are so happy that Chef Sugano had joined in 2019. We used to love dining at his restaurant. He’s truly an excellent chef. Lunch dishes are good value. Our server was very pleasant and informative. If one wants authentic Japanese food, this place is good. (I was born and raised in Japan.)

I want to like this place, but it just ain't makin' it. It seemed that no one was in charge, it took a long time for our food to arrive and we had to ask for side plates to eat off of - twice! The table next to ours waited for nearly 15 minutes just to get some water. Finally a wait-staff arrived, but they had already left. I don't blame them! The food was good once we got it, but the poor service ruined our dinner. Too bad.

Not good sushi. And prices are very high. I ordered 3 pieces of fatty tuna and it was not good. The fish was just off. It was slimy—not fresh at all. Prices are consistent with a very high-end sushi house, so I’d recommend just going there instead.

Overall, it’s a great place to grab dinner with friends. It’s a little too bright inside for my liking but the food lore than makes up for it. The service was a little slow but I think our server was trying to take care of more tables than she could handle. Everyone was friendly and the Ahi roll is highly recommended.

We discovered School Sushi a few weeks ago. It immediately became our favorite Japanese place. Don't let the name fool you. In addition to sushi, there is a large menu of appetizers and entrees. But, you'll definitely want to try the sushi. The School Beauty roll is sublime.

We had the Makunouchi Bento for lunch and loved it. It came with tempura, sashimi, chicken teriyaki and miso soup and was only $15! That's a great deal!
