Could not stay away! Was back here during the Thanksgiving weekend and stopped by on Saturday, it was during the lunch time this time and it was not that busy being two days after Thanksgiving. There were three other diners there and one couple mentioned that it was their favorite sushi place, I agree. During my meal I chatted with... More

I've read about this place on yelp and it was next to the Star$$. Dwnt was having the Italian Festival and I wanted coffee but wanted to walk around and headed to the Star$$ at around 10:30am and to check out Sushi Lovers. They were not open for lunch and there was no menu to look at only pictures of... More

Food is terrific. Bartender is smart and knows that his customers like a little fun. There was not one mistake in our food, and every person that works there made a point to see how we were doing. Great Great. Too bad the Hotel isn't run the same way.

Me and my wife have been going here for 3 years and it is still the best sushi in the city. We have eaten at other sushi restaurants to see if they could be beat but they just can't. Their special menu is so diverse and creative. Over 100 different rolls! Upside down shrimp and the Happy roll are some... More

It truly never ceases to amaze me HOW MANY AYCE Sushi restaurants Reno has but MOST use AVERAGE fish so they have to cover up the taste with the roll sauces. Sushi Lover doesn't have to do this. Their sushi is a cut above the rest. It's in a small strip mall you could blow by if you don't pay... More

Never too crowded, fast service, good sushi, and really great people. I usually spring for the all you can eat lunch special since I'm a sushi freak. The menu is good, about standard for reno stuff, not super creative but good. They also have non-sushi options. I go at least once a week!

They are one of the best sushi joints in Reno! Parking is a bit tricky...not many spaces in the lot, especially at lunch. But other parking on the street and nearby makes the hassle worth it!

Based on the reviews, I visited Sushi Lovers on a slow Sunday evening, an hour before closing. Would I return? You betcha. I ordered the All You Can Eat special for $23 and told the chef, “OMAKASE” which in Japanese means, at your choice. Chefs and staff are Chinese, so I asked in English, not a problem – any dislikes?... More
