...the spot this restaurant resides is old and uninspiring. The kitchen, while masked by a stained printed curtain, needs a wall. I have seen the kitchen floors a few times and they do make me a little nervous. The restrooms need to be cornered off better somehow. The decor is hideous. Open up the hostess stand and get ride of the paper clutter. Remove the plastic birds and fish and paper fans from the walls. The wall color, while bright, doesn't match anything. The tables are spacious, but sometimes I feel too close to others dining in the restaurant. Just seems a makeover could give this place that "excellent" rating.
The sushi is always fresh. Always. The food here is carefully prepared, even though sometimes it takes a little longer. That's a huge comfort to me when it comes to eating pieces of raw seafood. The miso soup and ginger dressing salad that accompany the meals are very good. While I have yet to expand my horizons eating sushi (I just discovered the cuisine about a year ago.), I recommend anything Sadako's sushi menu. I also tried a classic chicken teriyaki roll, and it was perfectly done. I've eaten at other sushi establishments around the country and in Ann Arbor. Sadako presents and tastes the best.
The waitstaff is always personable and they do not hover when you're trying to enjoy your meal. My husband and I have struck up a conversation with Eugene, who works there, many times. We enjoy the smiles and positive attitudes of those who work here.
Get to Sadako early as the student body seems to flood the place for dinner. Summer months are better for getting a table later in the evening.
