“Best Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

I love Izu! Paul, the owner, is a great guy and recognizes you if you come often enough and will provide free appetizers. Sushi is top-notch, always fresh, and much more reasonably priced than other restaurants in the area.

“Great sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

When a shore restaurant has a one hour wait in the middle of January, it tells you something about the quality of the food. Izu Sushi food is always fresh, the choices, preparation and display is neat and desireable, and the prices are fair. We eat here at least twice a month.

“nice japanese place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

popular in the area for its fresh sushi and delectable japanese dishes. aervice for me is a little alow although they make up for great food. non-sushi dishes always come out freshly cooked and servings are sizeable. great to go on lunch and dinner. worth going every now and then!

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

What a wonderful surprise this place is. Such high quality food, presented beautifully, with great service at a great price. Have been back twice and will definitely come again.

Definitely get the AK47 roll - it is amazing. The Fantastic roll is also very good. The pork gyoza are the best I've ever had (and I've eaten a lot of them). The outside is super thin and tender - not chewy or doughy or oily at all. The sautéed soba noodles are very tasty, with kind of a smokey flavor. The lettuce wraps are also solid and the edamame is a nice snack (though they often just bring some on the house if you don't order it).

And it's BYO to top it off, so a seriously gluttonous meal with alcohol is still outrageously affordable. It's not a secret anymore so if you plan to go on a Friday or Saturday night there may be a bit of a wait. But it's totally worth it.

“Great alternative to sawa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

If you want to save some money and get the same quality sushi, then definitely come here by all means. It's much cheaper than sawa! Only downside is that they don't have hibachi.
