Decent food, average to good service, clean and convenient to Westgate Mall on Saratoga Ave. Sushi is good and appears fresh with a very good selection. Menu has a good variety of choices Teriyaki, Katsu, tempura, donburri, bento boxes, udon, ramen and soba.... Flavor of their Sukiyaki was a little too weak in flavor for my taste buds but otherwise,... More

Friendly service staff. Sat at the sushi bar. There is a menu but I chose to select from the sushi boats. Good selections while I was there as it depends on what the chef is making and adding to the boats. Food was fresh and tasted good.

They were thawing frozen Salmon to use for sashimi. I paid my bill very promptly, and I won't be back. The whole restaurant also stank.

We came out to the mall for some holiday photos with Santa and this sushi restaurant was just the right place for us to stop and have a bite to eat. The service was fair and the food was priced in line with most other sushi places in the area. We ordered a sushi roll, salmon nigri, Oyako Donburi, and... More

So bummed to write this not so great review for Sushi Boat. We lived in Saratoga for many years and I had loved going to SB maybe once every 10 days or so. Always had the BEST service, food was (and still is) reasonably priced and very good. We moved back over the hill to SC area and unfortunately I... More

A local friend of mine took us there for a quick bite. It's an unpretentious place, and the sushi actually floats around in cute boats ( a first for me ) and I've been to many similar places all over the world, Yosushi in London, Shanghai, Singapore, etc. The sushi's were fresh and tasted good, and for a party of...

The last two times we have been charged for more plates than we have eaten. I let it slide the last time but last night i asked about the over charge. They... More

What do you expect from a mall Japanese restaurant? Service is horrible and unfriendly. And what Japanese restaurant (other than this one) charges for a second serving of rice? Went here twice and it was the same both times.
