My husband and I went here today and we had a fabulous experience! Our service was great and most of our food was awesome.We love sushi, we've had sushi from Minneapolis, DC & Charleston. We have been to ATL 5 times and this was our best experience so far. We went there specifically for their sushi. We sat at the sushi bar, ordered 5 rolls and soup & salad came out within minutes. They have a ginger, lemon peanut vinaigrette as their dressing which was delicious! The miso soup was ok.We ordered the Hawaiian, Home Depot, Godzilla, Geisha & the Baked Salmon rolls.Hawaii: Phenomenal! The chef makes it with coconut shrimp. I loved it because it does not have any sauce on top of it.Home Depot: Also phenomenal! This is made with fried sea scallops with a cream sauce on top that was great!Godzilla: This was ok. This roll was made really large (2x the size of a normal roll). It was deep fried and drench in a a nonviscous brown sauce that wasn't sweet. The roll fell apart because it was not rolled tight. I would not recommend this roll.Geisha: This was the normal plenty of fish with sauce roll, similar to a rainbow roll. Baked Salmon Roll: This was interesting. We did not care for it. The roll consisted of salmon & parmesan cheese on top, then baked. The cheese added a different flavor that we did not like with our sushi.The waitresses were really nice and on top of their game. I had plenty of water! The sushi chef gave us some japanese rice and seaweed to go because we were "out of towers", it was on the house. It was mighty nice of him! We would definitely go back to try their other rolls!

Adore this tasty sushi place in the Highlands! The sushi is always fresh, and if you're not in the mood for raw fish, you can't go wrong with one of…
I usually don't start a review by mentioning the service, but Daniel was hands down one of the best servers the Hubs and I have ever had. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and made our first visit to Eight an awesome experience. Two members of the management team also stopped by our table to chat for a moment, and they were very nice as well. I'd go back just for the service. Fortunately, the food was delicious as well. We were super hungry so we tried the scallops (they really did sizzle), sea bass, Explosion roll, and the Westside Roll. Oh yeah, we also tried the calamari. The seafood was flavorful, and even the side order of rice was great. The sushi was tasty. We had a few of their cocktails as well, which were unique and pretty potent (as least they were for me).The ambiance was cool, and I loved the decor.I'm definitely glad they're in the neighborhood, and will be working my way to becoming a regular.
Atlanta Fish Market has, by far, the best Seafood and sushi in the city. I've tried numerous items, including the Hong Kong salmon, friend lobster tail and Greek salad, but the sushi is the real winner. Tyson, the sushi chef sometimes has these specials that are unbelievable. The one I most recently had was the sushi grade salmon over fried ponzu rice, topped with tobiko and a chipotle cream sauce. It was PHENOMENAL. I came back a few days later to get the same thing. The main dining room can be a bit loud, so I opt for the tables near the front of the building next to the windows, or a seat back in the bar area where there's a sushi lounge and a relaxed feel. There's valet parking for $2 which is less expensive than I've seen in this area. The service is always excellent, and the bar tenders are friendly, ready to impress you with your cocktail.
My husband loves a few items off the menu so every now and then we drive clear cross town for it. I've only had a few items from here, one being the teriyaki chicken. It is loaded with shredded vegetables, which I like but overall its not mind blowing. If I'm in the mood for Chinese and I happen to be in the area, I would stop in for a bite but in my opinion its not worth going out of your way for.
It seems that every time I come into Eight they roll out the red carpet to me. The restaurant is never usually full, which is good if you're on a date but at first seemingly awkward. Their nigiri and their ramen are to die for! The pricing is good for what it is, and their lunch specials are amazing food for a decent price. I love being able to walk downstairs to Eight.
Ru Sans at Edgewood is in a convenient location if you live on the Eastside. I would give the food a B+. I often dine there for their lunch buffet. For $12 bucks, they have a full spread of their most popular sushi, tempura veggies, fried calamari(My fav!!), teriyaki chicken and miso soup. It's never overcrowded which makes for a quick drive by on my lunch break!
The restaurant has an Asian flare with bamboo and the open sushi bar. The menu is pricey however it is located in the Buckhead Shops among high end stores. Parking is pretty easy, there's valet and garage parking. I think if you want a more high end experience this is ok but I think there are other sushi restaurants where you don't have to spend as much.
This place is pretty good. The decor is nothing to really boast about, but the food and sushi is really delicious. We had a really new server, so the service wasn't as good as it could have been and it seemed that she was the only one that was working. If you're looking for a quick lunch, it's a good spot, but I wouldn't recommend it for a date night.
Serve beer wine, beer, and sake. Very little pieces of fish are served on a cold, frosted glass sectioned plate. The hot cooked chinese dishes are filled with lots of vegetables and pieces of meats with fresh white rice in a separate white canister. Very clean and organized inside, but a bit too pricey for the small bits of sushi-mi and sushi.
This is definitely one of the places to see and be seen in Atlanta! Their sushi is incredible and their cocktails are pretty great, too. I love coming here with my girls, a date or just for a quick bite to eat. Umm provides guests with a taste of luxury, making them want to come back again and again. One of my favorite sushi spots in the city!
