What a surprise. Wife and I ate at AHA last night. Service was excellent. Server explained items on their more than adequate menue. Our App and orders arrived quickly. The Ahi Poke was great. Kamakazi Rolls were spectacular. Very Reasonably priced for what you get.What a gem. I guess their name is appropriate. AHA

We really enjoyed AHA Sushi. The food was delicious. We didn't know anything about the restaurant. We were so excited to find a quality sushi restaurant so close to home.

This place has a very simple aesthetic and only about 15 tables. The staff was very kind and accommodating. I brought my younger brother here while on a visit to six flags. We couldn't believe how quickly our rolls came out and they all tasted fresh. I personally would recommend the black widow roll!!!

Nice, friendly staff and good food. Tried a new sushi roll that was out of my comfort zone and it was very good. They gave me a great dessert for my birthday which I think was called chunky monkey and it made my day.

We visited for lunch. Most of Japanese restaurant owners are Korean. But, the owner and chef of this restaurant is Japanese. I had tempura bento, my daughter had sushi lunch. Both were good. Cost was about $30 for us. The server was a very friendly man. He was really nice.

Dropped in for a quick bite while waiting for my lottery ticket to be drawn.. The Tuna sampler plate was a work of art. Two types of tuna which were fresh Followed by the Tuna dragon roll with a spicy wasabi mayo with Tobiko accents that will knock you socks off. Only had a small sampling of their menu, but... More

Small, cozy sushi restaurant with quick and friendly service. They offer the stand fair in sushi/ sashimi menu selections, as well as a handful of unique rolls. Everything was fresh, tasty and well presented. I will definitely go here again.

Food is delicious, sushi is very authentic, great option for Japanese food lovers. Very small place with an incredible take home traffic, I literally saw six pick ups while I was having lunch.
