Gig Harbor, WA
I've come here since elementary school, when my entire family would sit at the sushi bar and chat with the sushi chef, learning how to order in Japanese and more about the sushi culture. I went away to college on the other side of the country and hadn't been in 8 years, but I just revisited tonight to find the same chef and the same pleasant conversation, friendly service, and some of the best sushi I've ever tasted. If you don't know the Japanese names for what you want to order, just ask and they are more than happy to tell you what everything is and what temporary additions to the menu you should try out. I'm glad nothing's changed here and plan to keep coming to Koharu for years to come.
