Samurai Sushi

615-320-5438  •  $$
ADDRESS: 2209 Elliston Place , Nashville, TN 37203

CUISINE: Japanese, Sushi

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Kid Friendly

DETAILS
The most creative and freshest sushi rolls in Nashville can be found at Samurai Sushi, an intimate little space on what is sometimes known as "The Rock Block" for nearby rock music nightclubs. These are rockin' rolls, for sure, courtesy of chef/proprietor Yun Choo. The South Korean transplant's imaginative rolls arrive at the table looking like brightly colored tropical fish on land leave. His signature Choo Choo Roll earns its oft-heard praise and features eel, crab, salmon and avocado topped with sliced strawberries, a soy glaze and pine nuts. Also highly recommended are the rainbow roll and any of the special rolls of the day. One culinary work of art was titled The Beauty and the Beast, with mango wrapped around fried shrimp, crab and cream cheese. The sashimi is a value thanks to bigger-than-average servings. Besides the few tables in the small main room, a place at the bar would be worth seeking if only to see Choo and crew at work. A small, curtained back room provides a more private place to enjoy a meal.   Beer, wine and sake available. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. "The first inkling that unpredictable treats are in store comes via a mundane source: the salad dressing, a light concoction of citrus, pineapple, carrots, a touch of mayonnaise, soy sauce and ginger. That inventiveness extends to other starters, especially the salmon/tuna tartare and the mussels dynamite specials, both of which should not be missed."
