Sushi Avenue

            FINALLY I have time to post some more!  Of course it's a day that I'm sick and staying home from school (and supposed to be resting) but here I am.
            A favorite restaurant of my family's is Sushi Avenue in Decatur.  Incidentally, there are two in town within a mile of each other, but I've only been to the one on West Ponce.  The other one is on the square, right next to Raging Burrito.  The restaurant is very cute and hidden, with one room opening into another and then another.  The atmosphere is very chic; my only complaint is that the tables are a little close together sometimes.  As for the service, they're usually very attentive, but sometimes a little slow when there's a big crowd.
            Every good japanese restaurant has miso soup and a house salad with ginger dressing.  However, I've never had anything as good as they have.  Not joking, I often order two soups and two salads to start.  One time I even got my mom to pick me up some miso soup to go when I was sick.  As for an entree, I usually just get one sushi roll which is eight pieces.  With my two soups and salads, it's definitely enough food.  My parents really like to get the Bento Box.  It's a big plate split into a bunch of compartments, a couple pieces of sushimi (raw fish over rice), a couple appetizer-like bites, a few veggies, a piece of tempura, and a good sized piece of what you choose, like fish or teriyaki.  As for the TONS of kinds of sushi they have, I've never tried one I didn't like.  I almost always get the spicy crunchy tuna roll; it's absolutely delicious.  My mom really likes the eel roll, with a nice slimy piece of eel on top ;)  I'm afraid that one's a little too fishy for me.

Bento Box with Salmon
Spicy Crunchy Tuna Roll!
California Roll (After a few bites)

            Overall, Sushi Avenue has my vote for any occasion.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different.

Hope to have time to post more soon!

  1. Thanks for this review! I am considering heading there for a first date on sunday and this review just helped me decide that it's the place to go (if she likes sushi of course!) Thanks again!
