I ordered it for pick up at around 5pm, but got a bit delayed, so I called ahead around 4 to let them know I was going to be late, set it up for 6:30 instead. Sadly, I just couldn't make it at that time, so called them again, and got a rather annoyed lady (ok, this is my fault) who told me my sushi was made already, I had called before, and then silence. I didn't know what to do, so I told her I'll try to get there ASAP, and got a "Ok then, bye *phone clicks*" reply. Maybe they're just really busy, and I was being a bit annoying, so I deserved it.
Finally home for the feast! The rolls were really big. I wasn't disappointed at all. The quality... not so good. Don't get me wrong, it was all very fresh except for the scallop, which was a bit mushy, it's just that there was so much rice I got full after about three rolls haha!
The rice was also packed a bit hard together, so it was really solid.
I wanted to try something different and ordered the Pressed Sushi- Smoke Salmon ($7.50).
It was really pressed xD SO SOLID to the point the rice was mushed. Not recommended.
Golden roll ($4.95) was a chopped scallop roll topped with smoked salmon. It was decent, size wasn't that big, and the scallops weren't in the right sized chunks I would've liked to see.
I also had to try a chopped scallop nigiri ($1.65), since I love chopped scallop as well! This was a bit disappointing, but I guess it might've been me getting there late and having to bring this home too. So the seaweed was soggy =( *no pic cuz I was so hungry I just gobbled it up before I remembered to take a pic >w<*
