“Consistent Sushi”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

We've been frequenting Satsuma for 5 years, and probably go at least once per month. It is always good, fresh and with good service. We've had sushi, udon, tempura, salmon and many other dishes. If you like to eat a LOT of sushi, they have an all-you-can-eat special on Sunday nights for about $25.

“Not a bad place for sushi”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

Don't be put off by the hostess, they are not the most friendly. Ask to be seated at the sushi bar, the Chefs make up for the less than stellar welcome.
Decor is nice. They have 2 Japanese style tables although not raised off the floor. They are for large parties only. Shed your shoes and sit in semi-native seating.
They have a wide range of specialty rolls. I found their standard rolls a bit small and not impressive compared to what I am used to in LA. Maybe it's the area and it's "standard" here.
If you are really wanted a satisfying but not stellar sushi experience thry them out.

“Good Food, Good Value, Average Decor and Service”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

A jewel -- but not a diamond -- in a not so great setting, the Satsuma Restaurant provides good fresh quality sushi and sashimi for a fair price. I had the sushi (8 piece) sashimi (4 piece) combo for lunch for $14.95, and my colleagues had a variety of sushi rolls -- and everyone was happy. I wouldn't suggest you go out of your way to eat at the Satsuma -- a quick scan of the reviews will reveal it's not the best sushi option in town but if it's nearby, then it's a safe bet. Some have rated the service as poor. For us, it really wasn't; nothing exceptional, but the staff was attentive, and got the orders right.

Simply THE BEST sushi around! Also great tempura. The bento box is a real bargain for lunch - 2-3 items of your choice plus soup, salad, rice and sweets - all for $9-12
