Happy Hour still expensive 12/12/2006

The Happy Hour menu wasn't incredibly extensive, especially with the alcohol, but the food selection was decent. We tried their interesting martinis, some citrus-coconut thing, a lychee one, and a "green dragon" made with sake. My friends are all weak when it comes to alcohol so I they LOVED the coconut one. Indeed, it was good but a bit cloyingly sweet towards the end. The lychee martini tasted like a whole lotta vodka with some lychee juice and wasn't too bad but there was a little vagina propped at the bottom of the glass. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be a lychee. The green dragon looked like a heavenly glass of absinthe with a bright happy cherry drowning in the glowing green elixir. I thought it tasted a way a martini should. Like ALCOHOL. The sake came through nicely and they didn't put a lot of Midori in it, so I didn't taste the melon. But by then, I prolly couldn't taste ammonia. For food, my friends got some oyster shooters, calamari, mochi something or other that looked like ice cream you were supposed to dip in soy sauce. I didn't get none of that crap. I opted for pure sushi. The spicy tuna roll was delightfully true to its name. The salmon was...salmon. The tuna was great! Not fishy and had little surface moisture, which is good. The yellowtail was also thick and delectable though too pre-wasabi-ed for my taste. Overall, I'd say it was FREAKIN' EXPENSIVE!! My bill was $28 for three drinks 5 nigiri sushi and a tuna roll. Boooooooo! It was not a happy hour. more

Decent sushi, friendly staff, room for improvement 6/8/2006

Having worked at a very good sushi restaurant and being from Tokyo makes me admittedly picky. Even accounting for that, Nijo Sushi Bar & Grill disappointed me. I recently had a friend visiting from Tokyo who was staying at W Hotel, so we thought we'd try something within walking distance. They are off Spring St right by water (@ Western Ave), just steps from 1st Ave, which is a great location. We both had "omakase", which stands for chef's choice menu as many of you know, one with the "premium sake collection" to go with it. Having had a fair number of omakase's, this one is relatively cheap - $50/pp ($75/pp with sake). In my mind this is the way to eat sushi, since they will try to showcase what's freshest. We later found out the executive chef had "just come off vacation and been taking care of odds and ends which went haywire in his absence", and that he didn't cook our food - which in my mind is no excuse for not overseeing omakase, since the restaurant was not that full, being Tuesday. The menu had a promising beginning with fresh approach, with thin daikon wrapped rolls with different flavored house cured tobiko. The tataki - sheared albacore- was decent, but I wouldn't pair it with a bed of cheap seaweed salad. The flavor was fine. Another appetizer had fresh king crab meat and house-cured ikura (salmon roe), which is notable, since so many places would buy already cured roe in a tub from a supplier, which is not as fresh and plump. Things went downhill when chawanmushi (Japanese hot egg custard with dashi) came out. The surface was overcooked and the inside undercooked, due to too much sake in the mix, which there shouldn't even be. Chawanmushi's are supposed to be soft, smooth custard with no hardened parts. So they took those back and presented us with another dish, which was a tempura fried rolls of sorts, except done with panko (Japanese bread crumb) on the outside of nori. The material in those rolls, such as cucumber, is not suited for flash-frying (too much moisture seeping out). So "the fresh idea" wasn't based on good education about ingredients IMHO. Also at that point in the meal the dish was too heavy. Eager to please us, they tried to get us what we might like, but they kept missing the mark. For example, fearing "maccha tiramisu might be too heavy", they brought us green tea ice cream with strawberry sauce on top (eek) and fruit (ok), despite the fact I mentioned I was lactose intolerant. The sakes paired with the meal was decent, but it was more like a couple of big cups (chugs!) of sake, plus nigori to go with dessert - if it were me I would pair smaller samplings in ochoko (those tiny sake cups - nice little sips!) with each dish. That would make the experience a little more special. To give them some credit, they do try to please and ingredients are relatively fresh. So if you are looking for just a regular sushi fare, this place could fit the bill fine. I just wouldn't expect a fine Japanese dining experience, and chefs (at least the ones we had) are not particularly skilled. Our server was lovely and had a great sense of humor, very charming and service oriented, so she gets high marks. They did take a percentage off our meals, since they want you to be "nothing but delighted" for omakase, and the executive chef came out and chatted with us some, seeking improvement. So they're trying. Having been in the hospitality industry, I know how hard restaurant business can be, and I think we could nurture this place to be better (if you're so inclined). The dining would not be seamless if you expect fine entertaining, but the convenient location and relatively fresh ingredients will serve them well for now. (FYI - the original review was from April - but I noticed a duplicate listing for this business, which prompted me to post this review. Have written to JB staff about duplicate listings. Hopefully in the future we can avoid such duplicates.) more

Enjoying Sushi 9/12/2005

We have visited the restaurant for three times. All three times, the service has been slow. But all three times, food has been great. Prices are really adequate, and the ambient and service are very nice. Overall tasted plates: Sushi, Cal. rolls, Tempura, House salad, Miso soup, pricked chicken and beef with sweet sauce and rice, and sawaGAni (small fried crunchy river crabs). The best: sawagani. Really good. The worst: tempura (although not bad, it is a bit "heavy") Sushi is quite good. more

good but slow lunch 8/21/2005

This is a very new sushi restaurant on 1st and Spring. It's a descent size restaurant with inside and outside seatings. The decor is modern and trendy. Owner Jesmine will greet you and even take your orders. The sushi is fresh and fairly generous portion. My only complaint is their lunch can be slow even when it's not really busy. Maybe it's because it's so new. Anyway, one time it took me more than one hour to finish while there were only about five to six tables. more

Pretty Good Sushi 8/2/2005

I expected the old Rama on Post Street restaurant to be here and had some clients meet me for lunch. There weren't that many people there which always makes me leery (read: crowds+sushi=good food) The box lunch was excellent and a great deal under 10 bucks, we had a decent spicy tuna roll and a really good soft shell crab roll with jalapeno's, I eat sushi at probably 20 different places a year all over the West and East coast and found Nijo really good and the service was solid. $130 without tip for lunch for 6 of us and we all ate a ton.... more

Disappointing Sushi 6/25/2005

I was starving. It was 5:30. The sun was shining is Seattle. I was ready to feast on Sushi. We walked down the block from W Hotel. The restaurant was ok - a litle tired feeling. The service was slow. The sushi was average. We ate a lot. We stumbled back to the hotel to watch the Spurs beat the Pistons in Game 7. The sushi sat in our stomachs. Uninspiring gorgefest. more

  • In Short
    The ultramodern furniture, deep plum walls and rock music in the background give this sushi spot a hip edge popular with trendy downtown workers and pretheater diners. The coolest roll on sushi-heavy menu is the flamin' fire variety--tuna wrapped in albacore, drizzled with rum and set aflame--but others also satisfy. Also featured are traditional favorites like yaki soba and udon, as well as dressed-up classics like miso soup with lobster.
