130 FOR A PLATE OF SUSHI This restaurant has evolved over the years and recently got a facelift and was transformed to a sushi establishment. I have been friendly with the owner for a few years and I have looked at his now very empty restaurant for a few months. Until my visit the other day, I could not figure out why the once so busy eatery is now completely empty. THE PRICES. Sure, they will serve a beer for $5 and a cocktail for $6 but the sushi at $10 a piece! I have NEVER had a plate of sushi and have had to pay $104. Yes, ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR DOLLARS for a plate of sushi. I had one beer and tipped as one should. The total amount for the quick snack came to $130. ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY DOLLARS. The fish is fine and could not be any fresher but I cannot recommend this establishment to anybody. Rather than adjusting my bill when I noted with shock how much I was charged, the owner wanted to show me the menu. What started as a friendly hello ended on a very sour note. Sorry Henry, you got it all wrong. Goodbye for ever. Never again. Thank you.
