Review:"This is the only authentic Japanese sushi-bar in Pittsburgh. Owned and operated by Japanese natives with true experience (licensed) in Japanese cuisine. This is the only place in Pittsburgh to purchase fresh (I mean as fresh as it could come) fish from New York or California via airmail at least twice a week. We have seen many so-called ´sushi-bars´ pop-up in Pittsburgh in recent years but if you are looking for the absolute best in quality don´t even bother looking for anywhere else in town. By the way, this place isn´t cheap, but think about how much money these guys spend on shipping to get these fresh fish.... you know the deal, you get what you pay for in this world and this is the best sushi you could buy for any amount ! As hard core sushi freak myself (with some experience in culinary art) this is one of the best sushi-bars I´ve ever been to. (This place is right up with those in Japan!). Be sure to check this place out. You will have my guarantee... and say hi! to Gen-san, Uchan and Taku-san when you go!"

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse

Name:Kobe Japanese Steakhouse
Address:Rodi Road, Pittsburgh, PA
Review:"Opened in Spring 2003.For a town not known for anything more refined than cold beer and perogie's, this sushi restaurant combines the best of 'food art culture' with blue collar prices and portions. Known for its all-you-can-eat buffet, not only is the sushi unusualy fresh and well prepared, the chefs allow you to choose your individual order each time. You won't find any of the frills and gala of fine dining, but you will find excellent sushi, a huge selection of options and unique rolls, and the absolutely best prices I have ever seen. "

New Sambok Sushi

Name:New Sambok Sushi
Address:1737 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Fax:(724) 453-0875
Opened:Tuesday-Saturday 11:30am-7:00pm, Closed Sunday and Monday
Review:"In spite of its Korean namesake, New Sambok sushi is easily the most authentic and best sushi in all of Pittsburgh. Upon entering the New Sambok Asian market, turn to your left and a smiling figure will welcome you as he readies his previous order. The affable chef, Fumio "Yasu" Yasuzawa is not only a great guy, but also a Japanese Tokyo-trained sushi chef with over thirty years of experience in Tokyo, New York City, and New Jersey. The exceptional quality of his product easily earns him the title of ?Best Sushi in the ?Burgh,? but what makes Yasu's sushi even better is that it's reasonably priced -- a "regular" set includes six pieces of nigiri-zushi as well as a six-piece maki roll -- all for only six bucks! It?s an even better deal with the larger sized platters that are great for parties and moments of binge-sushi-eating. My personal favorite is to just let him work his magic with the best catch of the day and his imagination. I love his sushi so much that I?! m making him a web page for free, just so other people know about him, how he feels about sushi, and what it takes to truly appreciate his art. If you don?t think Yasu is God?s gift to sushi in Pittsburgh yet, that may be because I haven?t told you that he also caters. Yasu will come with his own sushi bar to wherever you need him and work his art in front of your guests and friends. (Talk about winning brownie points with your boss, company, or buddies.) And I just recently found out that he even takes special orders for more than just sushi; Yasu can make any kind of Japanese dish that you could desire! Just recently, he catered bento for the visiting Kodo taiko drummers of Sado Island near Niigata. They were unbelievable! (Both the bento and the drummers.) Anyway, I?ve ranted enough about him for one review, but don?t take my word for it. Come down to the Strip right near Wholey?s fish market and across from the big Pittsburgh fan supply place and feast away in his intimate little shop or order take-out and share with the family. Oh, and tell him Pete says ?hi.? Maybe he?ll make you something special ... :) "

Sushi Tomo

Name:Sushi Tomo
Address:4812 McKnight Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237-3406
Phone:(412) 630-8666
Reviews:"I'm writing to update the situation here in Pittsburgh. There's a new sheriff in town and he's behind the bar at Sushi Tomo. I have never had fresher fish ANYWHERE else. They consistently have the butteriest, most tender and delicious tuna (including albacore - divine!)and salmon, and the octopus is outstanding. Any sushi meal at a different restaurant is always a slight disappointment now that I have discovered Sushi Tomo. Their service is lovely - very friendly and attentive, and quick, even on Fridays during Lent (they're packed!). The owners are extremely gracious. They have a nice selection of wines, beers and spirits at the bar, and a bustling atmosphere. I previously wrote in commending Koto Buki (before I was married), and they will always have a place in my heart, but from now on Sushi Tomo owns my taste buds! "
- Michelena Wolf ( [March 20th 2005]

Reviews:"Right inside the front door of Wholey´s market in the Strip stands a sushi bar. It is fantastic. Being in Wholeys, all of the selections are incredibly fresh. The prices are also very reasonable, especially on the later combination platters. The sushi for 4 platter runs about $40 and has enough sushi and sashimi to feed at least 6."
- Tom Isabell (
"This little sushi bar is great. It's in the Wholey's fish market (an active retail fish market), so get it for take out or in the upstairs dining room. It is great quality sushi and an excellent value, however, don't go for a typical sushi bar experience. "
- Dan [Sept 26th 2003]
