This is a heavily frequented sushi spot, especially for the Asian diners. It offers many different combinations of sushi, sashimi, and teriyaki selections. The serving size is generous and one would not leave the place still craving. It gets very busy during prime dining hours,...More

Old Town Sushi is a very tiny restaurant, basically a hallway with tables. The food is quite good and the portions are very generous. No one in my party could finish their meal, doggie bags for everyone.

Went for lunch on a weekday. No queue and got seated immediately. We ordered a bento and a sushi plate. Both had generic servings. Very fresh. Found it amusing that the people manning the counter were Chinese (spoke Cantonese I believe) rather than Japanese. Overall...More
