Rate-A-Restaurant #243: Sushi Fuji
Restaurant: Sushi Fuji
Location: 208 E Palm Ave (Burbank)
Type of restaurant: Sushi
We stipulated: Always on the lookout for decent cheap sushi, we decided to give Sushi Fuji a try during one stop in Burbank (likely after an Ikea run).
They stipulated: "Food that takes things to a different level, food that tantalizes the taste buds, food that excites and is a bit on the exotic side." Um, what?
What we ordered: Our standards: Spicy tuna roll, shrimp tempura roll, california roll (for the Blogger Kid), eel roll, shrimp/veggie tempura (also for the kid... and us)
High point: We don't ask much for our cheap sushi, just that it taste, well, like decent sushi. And this was just fine.
Low point: The TVs. Everywhere. There wasn't a seat in the house where you didn't have a TV blaring right at you. Not the most pleasant dining experience. Also: The shrimp/veggie tempura was more veggie than shrimp (it came with just one piece).
Overall impression: Like I said, we're always on the lookout for decent cheap sushi. This qualified... but the dining experience was an absolute turnoff, especially with young kids.
Chance we'll go back: Probably not, as there are plenty of other cheap sushi places to try. Your picks are welcome in the comments.
