really? maybe their ROLLS are decent, but if your a real FISH eater, no way. Kampai Saint Louis in central west end has the freshest fish in STL. hands down!!! Fish straight from Japan. Not that frozen crap. Just saying.

Not even the best sushi on the street. Sekisui at Grand and Arsenal is better and it's not even close. Better food, better service, better atmosphere. In my opinion.

Mochi is pretty good but Chi Sushi Sake takes the cake

Me and my wife Ashli LOVE Blue Ocean. We go there for their AYCE special. Shoguns in Fairview is great too.

Don't bother with Mochi if you're a vegetarian, though. 2 rolls to choose from & usually a hateful server. Just go down the street to Sekisui. The sweet potato tempura & BB roll are what dreams are made of.

Not if you're a vegetarian, unfortuately. In that case, go down the street to Sekisui. The Sweet Potato Tempura & BB are what dreams are made of.

Cafe Mochi is amazing. The right around the corner location is great for me as well. Their lunch specials, 2 rolls and a soup for $9 or 3 rolls and soup for $12, are amazing and the half priced happy hour can't be beat.
