Kamikaze Sushi Roll - $9.95
Chirashi Sushi Don - $12.95
This is a review of a restaurant called Sushi Republic located in Greensboro, North Carolina. We visited a couple of months ago on a Saturday around 5:30 pm. I've been putting off this blog post since I don't like writing negative reviews. They are open Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and then they reopen at 5 pm and close at 10 pm. On Saturdays they are open from 5 pm to 10 pm and Sundays they are closed. Limited parking is available on Tate Street and on the left side of the restaurant. When we arrived we were immediately seated. We didn't care for the decor and the seating area felt cramped. They also have outdoor seating in the front of the restaurant. Their sanitation score is 94.
We had to wait awhile to order even though they only had a couple of customers. The employees seemed to be more interested in socializing with each other than tending to their customer's needs. We ordered the Kamikaze Sushi Roll and the Chirashi Sushi Don and shared them. They arrived eight minutes after we ordered. The Kamikaze Sushi Roll is described as "spicy yellowtail, avocado, cucumber, asparagus, crab, tempura fried and eel sauce". It tasted ok, but it was nothing special. Only six pieces for $9.95 seemed skimpy to us. The Chirashi Sushi Don is described as "fourteen piece assorted sashimi over rice in a bowl". The definition of sashimi is bite sized pieces of raw fish yet they served two pieces of some kind of fruit, two pieces of cooked imitation crab and two pieces of cooked shrimp. We were disappointed to say the least and the shrimp was overcooked. While we considered ordering another dish, at this point we were done. The waiter wasn't attentive and he was very unwelcoming. He gave us the impression since there weren't many customers that he'd rather socialize with his coworkers. Maybe that explains why there were so few customers on what should be a very busy Saturday night at a restaurant! We suspect they don't have good service because they are located so close to the University of North Carolina Greensboro and students need to eat within walking distance regardless of the service. Needless to say we shall not be returning and we don't recommend this restaurant.
