We had dinner at the Sushi Hut last night with our youngest and her soon to be husband. Pretty good selection of entrees (including Hibachi cooked meals for those who don't care for the raw fish), and nice array of appetizers.
I read a few reviews, and recalled from here on the forum, that one of the knocks was length of time from ordering to food served. Every order is made to order, nothing prepared from the best I could see from the operation....and therefore the length of time.
I'm not enough of a connoisseur to tell a big difference from any of the places where I have tried it before, but I thought it was very good. I do question what makes a good sushi place and a bad one; is it the quality of the fish? I would think rice is rice, and mostly basic ingredients.
I had Sushi Hut to go last night. The difference between bad and good sushi is the ingredients and quantity and presentation. Their presentation i.e. eggs and eel sauce on top of the rolls I got were lacking. I find the same thing at Dolce. Some of the sushi places in Detroit and Toledo take a little more care in adding toppings which I personally like. Sushi Huts fish pieces were markedly smaller last night than when I was there 3 nights ago. Probably just the different style of the preparer. Either that or it was the owner cutting corners for the bottom line !!
All Sushi places are different of course and once you have been to a really good one, all others are lacking.
My all time favorite was EnJapanese Steak house in Toledo. Toby, the owner always took great pride in ingredients and presentation. They are closed now but even the kids would choose going there for their birthdays.
Bad fish, bad sushi---pretty obvious. If you get a taste of bad fish it tends to ruin your meal !!!
No different than finding a worm in your salad or raw chicken. You shy away from it for a while but eventually go back.
Sushi Hut so far----4.5 stars
