On a boring Thursday night, my friends and I decided to take a trip to try the new sushi place in Mattoon, IL. I haven’t ever really had sushi, only hibachi dinners, so I was nervous and excited to try it.
The menu was a little confusing, I wasn’t sure what to get. I settled on trying the chicken hibachi and noodles with a California roll.
I got a salad with my meal that came out first. There was a ginger dressing on it which was very good! I was so happy I actually liked it.
Salad score 7.5/10
Next came our meal. The noodles were not what I expected. They were very large and worm like, so I didn’t eat much of them. I liked the chicken and veggies with my hibachi.
Hibachi score 5/10
The sushi was interesting. I really tried to like it, but honestly, I am just not a sushi person. One of my friends ended up eating the rest of my sushi.
Sushi score 2/10
Overall, the service was good and the restaurant is okay. I wouldn’t go there as my choice again, maybe for a special occasion, and I would just get the chicken hibachi with fried rice, my go to for Japanese restaurants.
Overall experience score 6/10
