The fish at San Shi Go is always very fresh. The sushi chefs are very creative with their rolls. It is not fancy but the food is very good. I love the Blue Crab hand roll, it delicious.

Stumbled on it on a Sunday night, and immediately knew it was special. Many locals there, small menu that was focused on fresh and creative sushi and sashimi. Favorite dish was the Albacore appetizer (they don't waste time on fancy names!) which was unlike anything...More
