Best Sashimi in Des Moines 1/23/2009

Most of the time, Appare does a fantastic job for Iowa, on par with the middle-range sushi bars in Manhattan. But they have suffered from staff turnover as well as the occasional less-than-perfect shipment of fish. Watch for the head sushi chef, and ask to have him prepare your meal, instead of some of the younger trainees. Pros: Sashimi, Miso, Private Rooms Cons: Location, Gotta be there the right time to get the fresh fish more

When chefs dodge questions like, ""when did the fish come in?"" ... RUN. 3/3/2008

I eventually got an answer of ""last night"", but the sashimi that I had - yellowtail and salmon especially - were clearly NOT fresh and were 2-3 days old. Instead of being fatty and sweet, the sashimi was dry (which should not be the case in my experience with firm-fleshed ""red meat"" fish). more

good service and prices. sushi not so great 1/27/2008

I went here a few weeks ago based on a similar experience with the other reviewer. I went for lunch on a weekend as opposed to dinner though. We were seated quickly and the service was pretty good. The prices hear are unbelievable. Compared to other sushi places around the area you will not find a better deal. I think me and the other four in my party each got a two rolls, and bowl of miso soup for 9 dollars or something close to that. However once we got our sushi the experience went south. I ate only one piece of my yellowtail because it definitely wasn't fresh. Other rolls were mediocre. All in all I would say that this is a good place if you really are craving sushi but are on a really tight budget. This is better then HiVee sushi but thats about it and that isn't saying much. Pros: price Cons: quality more

Fabulous sushi and atmosphere 5/1/2007

I went to this place for dinner after being faced with a 45 minute wait at Taki- supposedly the best sushi place in town. I was stoked to find I did not have to wait for a table yet there were a good amount of people dining there. The food and service were great and I was tempted to go back the next day! The Las Vegas roll and the crunchy 2 in 1 roll were delectable! There were 2 different wedding parties going on along with the hibachi chefs juggling knives and people singing happy birthday to the sound of a gong so needless to say I was very entertained by the atmosphere as well as the grub. Pros: parking, family place Cons: seating in front of hibachi chef limited more
