I was so glad when another
sushi restaurant opened in Kennesaw. No longer a slave a Rusan’s (not that there’s anything wrong with it), I eagerly anticipated my first visit to Kuroshio Sushi. Upon entering you can see that a lot of money went into Kuroshio Sushi, definitely more upscale looking than Rusan’s.
We decided to stick with sushi although they have many, many options in their diverse menu (Japanese, Teriyaki, Fried Rice and Noodle entrees, etc). We opted to stay with
sushi. One of our choices was La Rhumba (spicy tuna, crunches, top white tuna, avocado, spicy sauce). Sounded amazing to me. The other pick which I don’t remember the name of, had eel in it.
Our food arrived and although the presentation was lovely, as
sushi usually is, the taste was disappointing. It didn’t have that fresh taste I’m used to with sushi. And the texture of the fish was strange too. It was as if it had been squeezed through a cake frosting tool. . So, although the service was good and the place has a pretty interior the food left something to be desired.
Fast forward eight months – gas is $4 a gallon and as much as I love going ITP, my wallet doesn’t always agree. And after reading all the great reviews about Kuroshio, I had to give it another chance. So, on a rainy Wednesday, me and my coworker Brandon, headed out to try them again.
We both decided that we wanted entrees but Brandon wanted some
sushi so he ordered some of their dollar sushi (3 pieces for a buck). For entrees, we both had the Spicy Lemongrass Beef. They should call it Unspicy Lemongrass Onions with a side of Beef.
As far as the service, I don’t know if our waitress was having and off day or what, but the service was incredibly slow. Our office is 3 minutes away from the restaurant and our lunch hour turned out to be a lunch hour and a half. She didn’t seem very familiar with anything on the menu, and we had to ask a couple times for the hot sauce to spice up the unspicy lemongrass.
I really do want to like this place, I’m just finding it hard to. I’ll be back….just give me another couple months….
