This is by far one of the best, if not the best, sushi restaurant in Lexington. I think the place is due to close soon, so hurry and get the sushi before it's too late!

Do NOT let the location of this sushi place scare you off. Yes, it looks a bit sketchy to be honest, but if you like sushi this place is more than worth it. Once inside and get eating you will forget all that. It's like...More

I am a Japanese who lives in Lexington, KY. Sugano is the most authentic and delicious Japanese food I can find in probably fifty miles radius from my home. I would give 10 out of 10 for food, 9 for the service and 4 for...More

The best sushi I evere eat in US. The master chef is incredible active. You feel like in Japan. Can feel the real fresh fish. Sugano is an artist. Will be here again at 100%
