Sushi Zushi - Downtown
Dine In • Take Out • Delivery • Catering
We were visiting from out of town and worked our way downtown for sushi. Parking is not readily available but I believe it would be a great option if you're already in the area. The sushi was tasty and fresh. Overall, we have a good experience.
The food is really good !!
The service is not what you expect.
The place could be better designed it looks like an ordinary restaurant.
Could have a better design.
I wanted to get there earlier and try to change my booking and I could not, when I arrived there anly 2 tacked were taken and one was mine.
We sat there for one and a gal hours and the place remained the same only 2 tables!! So why the buzz about reserving ????
Staff was friendly. The cucumber saketini is a must! Sushi was fresh and excellent. It was a great meal and will definitely go back
They are not experienced staff .poor selections. Had to walk out before ordering
Horrible experience. Waited over 45 min Didn’t receive food. Server was rude.
We have been Sushi Zushi Rewards members for years and this was the first time that our order came out incorrect. We also waited almost an hour for a refresh on our drinks. Needless to say I am unsure we will ever be back.
We went to a different Sushi Zushi restaurant last year during our annual girl’s trip and it was just stellar as we remembered. Sushi Zushi was a “must-do” on our list this trip and DEFINITELY did not disappoint! Cosimo Roll for the win!!
The specialty rolls and the drinks were great.
Went to this restaurant because one of the few I could get a reservation at before the Final 4 Championship game on Monday night. Should have known why.
The food itself was okay--- tough to mess up Fried Rice and the Sashimi was good although could have been colder. My son ordered chocolate cake for dessert and it was subpar.
Biggest problem was after the meal using the men's room-- this was absolutely disgusting and looked like it had not been cleaned in days-- if the men's room looked like that it always makes me wonder what the kitchen looks like.
For these reasons, this will be a one and done!
LRI roll was amazing! Great food-we’d go again
If you are low carb, I recommend the sashimi platter and River Walk Roll. Both were superb!
Very Good Sashimi, Sushi, Sake + Service!
Easy to see why this place is so popular. Nice modern atmosphere, fast and friendly service, very reasonably priced and the fish tastes fresh. They ask if you want thick or thin sliced sashimi - we opted for thick and it was perfect. Highly recommend. Wish there was one in Chicago!
I wasn’t sure how good it would be so I had to eat there twuce!😉
New Year's eve reservation, they clearly had let their best staff have the night off, as the service was incredibly slow. We waited over an hour and a half for our food and overheard several other tables saying they were waiting more than an hour. One group who were seated after us received appetisers and one entree before we got our food, but then waited another 45minutes or so for the rest of the group's entrees. It seemed as though both food prep and table service were backed up or overloaded. The food was fine when it arrived, but overall a very frustrating experience.
If you have to explain how bad a place sucks then it all becomes a bigger nightmare than it was and let me tell you, it was very bad. Cold and misty outside and New Years Eve to boot, we have reservations in this tiny little sushi place less than a block from our hotel. We get the a few minutes early and wait. While waiting, I notice that there is no hostess so waiters are taking turns trying to determine who is going to take time out and serve as host. There’s four or five wait staff and one doubles as a bartender while a manager and some chick are trying to fill in wherever they can. Three sushi chefs are behind the counter working diligently to perform all of their task. But still we wait. After nearly fifteen minutes we are put through the process of telling our names and reservations for three and are seated. The night seems like it might turn around but it never does and gets progressive worst as an appetizer is forgotten, drinks go unattended, then half of the entires are served without the second half. It could never recover even after the manager removed half of the items from our bill! I told him. It was the worst service and food that I had ever had and it was no understatement.
Food was very good. Servicer was attentive but food and drinks took a long time to be delivered. Considering it was packed and New Years Eve the overall experience was above average.
Excellent Japanese food for a restaurant outside of Japan!
We will be back!
Great food, prices and location! Easy to find and fun atmosphere!
Zushi Sushi has great food and service! The options were very good and food was perfect! Only downside was that it was quite expensive.
We ordered a big “delicato”sushi roll ($13.00) and the nigiri sushi sampler ($14.00). Both were very good and the price was especially reasonable. Decor wasn’t anything to write home about but the the price and engaging wait staff made for a pleasant dinner.
Ram and Cameron were great. Food was good for a good price.
Nice little neighborhood spot, right by the Riverwalk, not on it though...so no view. I went for Happy Hour and it was good. The waiter was awesome! good guy, wish I could remember his name. If you like sushi and good drinks, I recommend for sure!
The food quality was high, the creative use of spices created unique flavors. Sushi was fresh. Nice place.
Aprrently they do not take reservations on Fridays. Also, the hostess seemed very rushed and was short with me. Besides that, the food was absolutely incredible.
The restaurant itself has good food, only reason I would recommend, I went on a weekend and it wasn't packed, so that was good. Outside of that the service wasn't the best, nothing extra was offered (sauces), and it being out first time, we were pretty lost as far as the menu goes... waitress didn't seem to care, wasn't helpful. Seemed rushed.
Great sushi and staff.
Sushi was excellent and would listen to your waiter (ours was Donovan) - they know what they're talking about! Arrived around 6pm which was prime for getting some great rolls at half price as well as the cold, unfiltered saki - delicious! Would definitely recommend the Red Moon roll - multiple flavors that come at you in a layered format!
No changing table in the bathroom. I had to walk down the block to change my baby. The food was great, but having to go find another bathroom during my birthday dinner was not.
There for was ok. We had a couple of items that were a little off. It wasn't bad but not great either.
Sushi = meh.
Great service. Great food. The bartender Chico is so awesome and we always enjoy the service we get from him. 5 star all the way
Great service and food - inexpensive and exquisite!
Convenient location off the riverwalk but unobtrusive signage is hard to spot.
Saturday lunch was not nearly as packed as expected. Host was not very welcoming. Waitress was kind, patient and accommodating.
Food was perfect mix of authentic Japanese and modern cuisine.
Price was just right for four drinks, two appetizers, four mains and two premium rolls ($100).
Ambiance was a bit lacking... Could have been any cafe/bistro.
Overall, enjoyable meal but any other Sushi Zushi location would have been just as good if not better.
Not what I was expecting at all. It was too casual for the occasion. I have been in another Sushi Zushis and they are really nice but not this one. Also, the service was bad, the waiter was kind of rude. Not what you would expect from Sushi Zushi. I'm not coming back there.
My 12 year old daughter and I were visiting from out of town and read great reviews about Sushi Zushi. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was very busy the night we went but they made accommodations for almost every party that came through the door. The food was amazing and my daughter loved that they had "fancy" non-alcoholic drinks for her. I would highly recommend making a reservation through Open Table as it's a small restaurant. Wait staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu (and understood what a 12 year old may or may not like in her sushi). The rolls with strawberry and kiwi sauce sounded odd to me but it was one of the best rolls we ordered. Highly recommend!! Overall it was a great experience and if we are ever back in San Antonio, we will definitely visit again.
Visited it again during our sequel visit to San Antonio, proved good value, good food, good sake. Next time we will come back!
Looking for some sushi not on the river walk. Found this online and sushi was very good. Excellent selection and solid service. Sashimi was excellent!
Had two rolls. One was ok but a little soggy and flavorless and the other was made with tuna coated in pepper. The pepper was overpowering and could not be scraped off. The was no other discernible flavor and I couldn't eat more than a couple of pieces. Huge menu and perhaps other items were better.
Our server (unfortunately, I don't remember his name) was excellent; friendly and attentive. In my opinion, the sushi was ok, not bad but not great. Since it's the only sushi place (that I found) close to the River Walk, I would return
