I’m picky. Mark is picky. When we get the opportunity to go out together for a meal, we want quality food. We also want excellent service, alcoholic beverages and a great atmosphere. We find all of those things at Sushi aka in downtown Suffolk, VA.
The attractive young man making the sushi may fool some of you but if you look closely you will notice the aura of authority and confidence. You will notice that he is invested in his work. Yes, he’s the owner. Have a seat right there where you can watch him and chat with him while he’s working or have the host/ess seat you at a table where you can chat privately. There are even sofas you might relax into with your sake and a plate of fried Gyoza.
So far as Suffolk eateries go, we have tried them all and this is our spot. It took us a while to get over our sushi-ordering-intimidation factor but once we got there and the staff patiently offered Sushi 101 for us, we were thrilled. I highly recommend Sushi aka for the great food…and great everything else.
