I can't even, so good. Chef Ken-san is a genius in the kitchen, and they have the freshest most delicious sushi I've tasted in SB. If you want a dining experience like Arigato, without the high tone attitude, then Ahi is the place for you!...More

First and last time at this restaurant. Got seated immediately and they had only one guy waiting the entire restaurant. It was half full. He literally was running from table to kitchen. We did not get our dinner order in for at least 45 minutes....More

The sushi offerings are mostly just average, but the eel and a special of fresh fish cooked with chef's sauce was truly excellent: made you know that the ocean was close at hand.

Ahi Sushi is great choice for solid well priced everyday sushi. Both sushi and cooked dishes are of excellent quality. Service was fast and waiters were attentive. Décor of the restaurant is very basic.

This is my second visit to Ahi Sushi, and the sushi was pretty good the service was very attentive but the general ambiance and cleanliness were unacceptable. The whole place seriously needs a good cleaning and facelift. First off it was a very warm night...More
