This is my new favorite sushi bar in Gainesville, Fl.
From their website:
“The chefs at Shooting Star all cooked at upscale dining establishments in the chic areas of Tokoyo.”
I believe it. After eating here twice (I sampled about 5 different rolls, with cooked and raw fish) I have decided that this is my favorite sushi bar in town.
The quality of the ingredients and the flavors were a wonderful surprise! The presentation is beautiful, exactly what we all expect from a sushi restaurant. The prices were in line with most other places I have eaten sushi, around $5 for a simple roll and up to $12 for a multi-fish fancy roll.
The only ding I would give them is for ambiance – this is not the place to take someone you want to impress with beautiful decor. The building and furniture feels a bit run down.
I’ll bet that will change as the popularity (and income) grows, but if you love good sushi then you might have to deal with a wobbly table.
