    Best sushi experience i ever had! The omakase sush (15 pcs) was meticulously prepared with many one of a kind ingredients, including caviers, truffles on top of the super soft toros. Every piece was different and beautifully decorated with unique flavors. Every single piece was delicious. The vegetables served between the 3 round (each round comes with 5 pcs) of sushi were fresh although may taste a bit bland but healthy. Other appetizers and dessert was also very nice. Although the Omakase may look a bit pricey at $125 per person, i would definitely recommend experiences here over other places including Nobu.

    We visited Ondo for the first time last night. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. We ordered the seaweed salad, which was crunchy and flavorful. We ordered a large amount of sushi nigiri, all of which was excellent. In particular, the Japanese red crab, the scallop, the uni, and the Chu-toro were amazing. The dessert, a raspberry panna cotta was fabulous - light, sweet, and refreshing. We also ordered two different types of sake and the yuzu sparkling soda, all of which were delicious. The service was exceptional. From the moment we walked in the door to our departure, the waitstaff anticipated and addressed our every wish. I cannot say enough good things about them. The only small complaint is that we ordered the panko shrimp, which was good but could have benefited from fresher frying oil. I noticed the slight difference in taste but the other two diners did not. I, however, could smell the cooking oil while the shrimp was cooking and could tell the oil was slightly past its freshest. We will definitely return.

    My wife and I love sushi and been to many famous sushi place in Japan, TW, USA. This is the worst one by far. She couldn’t finish it. $200 for two and we left hungry. Food looks amazing but taste horrible.

    I'm not a sushi eater (I don't really like things they are slimy or taste fishy) but my daughter wanted to come here for her birthday. We did the omakase, where the chef picks what you eat and serves you piece by piece. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The fish was so fresh, there was no fishy taste, and the texture wasn't slimy at all. I had no idea sushi could be so good. The chef did an excellent job, every piece he made was made so expertly. It was fun to watch him slice the fish and put it all together with so much care and precision. Perfect amount of wasabi (real wasabi too, not horseradish). Just an all around excellent meal. I left really full. If you can afford a $350 dinner I'd suggest you try it at least once for a special occasion.

    Excellent selection of high-quality fish. Very well-prepared sushi you can feel (perfect temperature of rice, just the right amount of soy and wasabi). I would have liked more appetizer options however. Also, was eager to see more Korean-inspired dishes. Still, I would highly recommend this place for sushi

    WOW — Exceptional sashimi and exceptional service. This was a larger party birthday event for a close friend. We had booked for outside but as we were 8 people, we ended up inside to sit together. The restaurant checked our vaccination status, very professional and compliant. The interior is beautiful, clean modern aesthetic. Diligent service and dedication. The sashimi was exceptional — so many options, freshness supreme, large shiso leaves, heaps of ginger... Also, the appetizers were delicious, the chicken tenders with spicey mayo an unexpected front-runner. Also an impressive list of cold and hot sake, filtered and unfiltered. Outstanding.

    We celebrated our anniversary with an early dinner at Sushi Ondo before seeing a show at the Orpheum. Easy location, but a bit off the beaten path so it was nice and mellow when we arrived. The service was outstanding and food impeccable...probably the freshest selection of sushi I've ever had! Staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. They even brought us a slice of their unbeatable matcha cheesecake with a "Happy Anniversary" message...so special! We dined outdoors on their sidewalk "parklet" and were very comfortable. They take COVID guidelines seriously, which we really appreciated. Definitely adding it to our short list for dinner in the city!!

    This is not your standard california roll sushi restaurant. Sushi Ondo offers an excellent omakase and tasting menu along with a number of nigiri/sashimi options. There is also a small appetizer menu to share, but the main focus is high-quality fish. If you're fond of sake, there is a long list of options and a selection of Japanese beer to pair with your meal. Sushi Ondo isn't a "sushi-mood" restaurant, it's for a premium experience.
