So this is my go to place for a quick sushi fix, but they have some issues. Often when calling in orders you get a busy signal. It's 2013 - get another line or find a solution so that multiple people can use the same phone.

Also - sometimes the sushi is rather warm when I pick it up, so get a refrigerator or something to keep orders cool (or hot if applicable) until people swing by.

The maki itself is always pretty good - but there's been some inconsistency over the last few orders. Spicy Tuna rolls used to have panko crumbs, and the texture was great, but on occassion they seem to skip this step.

Also- uniformity in the size of the pieces is something they could work on. All of this is part of the sushi eating process.

Sake bombing - a ridiculous but oh so fun invention. Went here last night with a large group of friends and we greeted with friendly smiles and amazing service all night long. They were able to handle our noisiness, indecisiveness with the order and repeated yells of "sake, sake, bomb, bomb". The food was up to the mark with special mentions to the fire maki roll, yellow fins roll and yellowtail Serrano .

I had dinner here last night and was really pleasantly surprised. I was not expecting this at all! The restaurant has a nice vibe with good music and nice lighting - super friendly server (but not overbearing) - and best of all, the sushi/sashimi was fantastic. Reasonable prices as well. I will definitely come back here again.

Called ahead a small order of sushi and was yet again pleasantly surprised. They are very quick to fulfill phone orders and always very speedy during check-out. Only issue is parking, there isn't much out front and you usually have to double park or go the bank next door.

My staple at Fin's is the spicy tuna roll and I usually gorge myself on these, we also had the cooked salmon roll and fresh wrap (which doesn't come with a peanut sauce as you'd get at other places).

You can always count on good sushi at Fin's and the prices are very reasonable.

Japanese restaurant experience at its best. Great food, great service at very reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere too with some background music and plenty of customers who would appear to have the same opinion of the restaurant.
