awfullllllllll – service was extremely awful food was not fresh and expensive too
Ok... – The fish was excellent, but the sushi rice wasn't quite sticky enough. It takes a lot of skill to get sushi rice sticky enough, but not too sticky...the chef lacked this very important skill. It wasn't a problem for the rolls, but the nigiri was another story...
location was excellent but food is wierd – the location is excellent but the food was so different than before, they have a chef named Nelson before that has a excellent food and good personality but I think he left already that why food changed.
WE FOUND NELSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – We found Nelson and we are so happy!!!!!!! We can have some sushi that stays together now!!!!!!
not that good anymore – service was not too bad its just hard to talk to them in English, food was ok but sushi I would say its not that fresh and all the rolls are loose but they said its a new sushi chef and everythings different than before they said before was better when they had a chef named NELSON!!!!!
...a long way from town BUT – We just came back from another Sunday night treat at Sapporo. The food is A+, the best sushi in Nashville (and its suburbs), extensive menu, hot and cold appetisers, ..try crab iso age and the boiled baby octopus, the sashimi and sushi are grade 1, and a nice selection of filtered and unfiltered sake. Its a bit of a drive from town..bu well worth the effort if you know and appreciate the difference between average and good sushi. Staff are friendly, ambience is OK. I wish sapporo II would open up in Mt Juliet (hint hint)
INCREDIBLE – I had never had Japanese cuisine before coming here. It was delicious. You have a server and you have a chef. The server is pretty much "Refill Man". For those of you not in the know, the word "sushi" means "Appetizer". It isn't about raw fish. "Sashimi" (might have misspelled that) is the raw fish. I got the Nashville roll and it was just incredible. The chef was incredibly knowledgable and very kind. The service was great! The food was incredible, we shared a combination plate and came home full. They give you soup & salad then you get your veggies and meat and you get sherbert for dessert and it's all included in the price, although you can opt to eat some sushi (appetizer, remember?) as well. I had a great time, and so will you. I never felt like a jackbutt from not knowing anything about it.
Now I'm a sushi lover! – The nagiri sushi (w/o the seaweed) was so deliscious, I couldn't stop eating it!!! The Maguro (Tuna), and Ebi (shrimp) were my favorites. I have been every week now for 4 weeks! I'm addicted! You get 2 pieces for $3.50 to $3.75, so it adds up.
Don't go if you're in a hurry or at least don't sit at a table, service is extremely slow. Sitting at the sushi bar has been great. Ended up getting a free appetizer that we later learned was octopus! (Not bad.) And other nice samples for free.
GREAT PLACE FOR SUSHI!!!! Their teriyaki dishes are good also.
Clean, fresh, and vibrant – I have been living in the Nashville area and eating sushi all of my life, but I did not discover Sapporo until less than a year ago. Since then, I've been very pleased. The sushi prices are a bit higher than most of the other downtown bars, but the quality of fish and service of the chefs are unmatched. I fully recommend sitting at the bar, however, as the servers spend too much time sit around and just chat among themselves. The chefs, however, are always friendly and gracious. The head chef remembered me after just one visit! As far as price goes, expect to pay about $15 per person if you order nigiri and maki and have an average appetite. For entrees and sashimi, expect $10 to $20.
Absolutely Fabulous – I am NOT a fan of sushi, but this place has changed my mind. I LOVE the spicy tuna rolls. They are extremelly flavorful and fresh. The service has always been wonderful. Since I have discovered this place, I would say that I eat there at least once a week. The price is good and the atmosphere is pleasant.
Remember to ask for some hot tea. It is great and free!!
