I’ve had Hokaido bookmarked since I saw Megan C.’s review a few months back. With all their 5 star reviews I was eager to try it but a little weary of the hype. Sure, it might be a little premature for me give this place such high marks after one visit and after only trying two rolls, but those 2 rolls were damn good.

– Kamikaze roll ($11.00) – eel tempura roll with spicy tuna and avocado. Absolutely loved it!
– Rock ‘n Roll ($12.50) – 5 kinds of  generously cut  fresh fish and crab wrapped in cucumber.

Their menu is filled with all the prerequisite creatively-named rolls that contemporary sushi joints have but from what I saw of other rolls being served they are beautifully presented and quite large.

The staff and sushi chefs were incredibly friendly and treated everyone like they were old friends. The atmosphere isn’t as modern as the rolls they serve, but it’s still a comfortable environment. It’s kinda got a stereotypical japanese restaurant feel with the dark wood and traditional japanese decor.

This place is definitely worth a few more visits and might become my new favorite neighborhood sushi joint.
