Did not have a good experience there.
Best Japanese restaurant in the Treasure Valley, bar none. let me repeat, BAR NONE.Highly recommended.
I enjoyed the sushi, I am from Seattle, so I know fresh fish! The sushi was exceptional and the service and staff were friendly and great! Definitely recommend if in search for great sushi in Idaho.
We went to IOU hoping to eat good sushi and were VERY DISAPPOINTED! SERVICE WAS SLOW. A group that came in after us were served and we waited 1/2 hour just to have our order taken. The atmosphere was cold and BLAH. No charm at all and the one waitress looked like she just got out of bed. Will never return and would not even feed it to my worse enemy. Ate about 1/2 hour ago and starting to feel sick.
I have gone to this restaurant at least 4 times over the last two years, and I live in Washington. My sister and I have a "girls weekend" with a few of our friends to bring together those of us in Washington and those in Utah. This restaurant has been a staple since we stumbled- almost literally- into the doors 2 years ago. I do recommend sitting at the bar so that the guys will make custom rolls. The food is great, and we all loved the atmosphere. The price was much less than we were accustomed to paying in Salt Lake City and Seattle.
I absolutely love the ambiance in this place. The sushi is pretty good, but it's a little overpriced. Sometimes though, on special occasions, I'm willing to make the splurge to sit in all that gorgeousness. Don't think you can skimp on the tip, because the service is excellent too.
