First to Review

This is actually Sachiko Sushi II, the originall being off Speedway on Wilmot. Sachiko is the daughter's name of the Japanese owner and his Korean wife. There about 4 other eateries of different sorts next to this sushi-ya.

It is pretty large, with 10 sushi bar seats and another 20 or so tables. When I went (Monday night) the chefs were both Korean, the young man from Seoul and the young woman from Fresno (second generation). The middle aged waitresses included a Korean and Chinese-Vietnamese. This gave me a chance to practice saying thank you in Korean and Chinese, discuss Vietnamese food, ask for the best Korean restaurant in Tucson (there are none, according to the Koreans) and order and ask for the check in Japanese (which they understood), although they didn't try to welcome me with the Korean version of "Irashaiimase"!

I ordered my usual Nigiri choices, which came on the traditional wood platter. The sushi was all reasonably fresh and cut large, with smallish rice balls, but looked colorful. My chef (from Fresno) used very little wasabi on each piece, less than normal. Most common nigiri are priced at $3.50 (i.e. maguro, hamachi, sake, ebi, tako, saba, ika, izumi dai) and at $4.50 were unagi, anago, hirame, ikura. Cali roll is $4.50, Spicy Tuna roll is $4.50, Shrimp Tempura roll is $5.95 and Rainbow roll is $8.50 ( I didn't eat all of these, I am just telling you the prices!) Miso Shiro was free. 6 nigiri and a large Asahi beer totalled under $30 before tip.

For a middle of the desert, Korean chefed sushi-ya, this place meets reasonable expectations for what it is and would satisfy most of the clients that come here (many of whom don't know better). There was even a table of Japanese businessmen eating, for lack of a more authentic alternative nearby.
