“Busy for good reason”
Review of Kim's Sushi

Reviewed 18 July 2016

We love sushi which is hard to find on Sundays so when we saw that Kim's was open and got good reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try it although it doesn't look like much. The parking lot was packed and the place was busy with good reason- the food and service were great. We both ordered the sushi set and the fish was very fresh. The pungent dressing on the salad was very good as was the miso soup to start- much better than other places in the area but the most delicious items were the treats that were thoughtfully brought to us gratis- perhaps because we had to wait to a very long time for our sushi. One was the seaweed salad. The other was the seared tuna which was incredible. We will definitely go back to Kim's and order these items as well as some items that other diners were eating and looked great- such as the red dragon roll.

Small and unpretentious but wonderful! Complimentary soup and salad tasty treat. Sushi very good and many creative rolls that are special to Kim's. One of our favorites!

Listening to everyone rave about Kim's we decided to get takeout. After ordering we were told our order would be ready in 20 minutes. Forty five minutes later... I don't mind waiting but would appreciate an honest time frame. I found the rice to be gummy in the sushi rolls and the fish for sashimi was cut so thick I felt like cooking it. Needless to say, we won't go back.

This tiny unassuming sushi restaurant has some of the best sushi I have ever had. The staff are very pleasant and the service is basic but done well. The place can fill up fast and with the small sushi chef station they can only turn out so much so fast. Should they fall behind, expect some yummy snacks to tide you over, on the house of course. In addition, expect them to add an extra something to your order so prepare for the quantity. I highly recommend their speciality rolls, look around when you arrive as there are always new rolls with descriptions hanging on the walls. You will likely not find these on the menu. I suggest the following rolls; Volcano, Louis, Philadelphia, shrimp tempura, shrimp balls, shrimp shumai and the kelly roll. Of course the soup and salad with house dressing is always a great way to start. We have been coming to Kim's for years now and our only regret is that we didn't find this place sooner! If you are in the WO area and into Sushi, Kim's is a MUST!

The facility completely throws you off. Small and crowded! However, food is great! Complimentary soup and salad delicious and deep fried rolls are unique and delicious. Everything we have had there has been very good. Suggestions from staff are on point, not necessarily the most costly and the way to go. Don't look at the outside; go in and enjoy.
