Old School Value

Traditional-based Sushi

Our food and unique omakase-style service are based on Chef Nozawa’s 50 years of experience and early training with master chefs in Tokyo.

New School Approach

Don't Think. Just Eat.

At SUGARFISH, you’ll experience sushi as Nozawa has intended, and you’ll find that we do some things differently.

An important point about Nozawa-style sushi is his strict adherence to traditional sushi: You’ll find no California rolls, spicy tuna rolls, or teriyaki at SUGARFISH. Chef Nozawa believes the sushi experience should be pure and simple. We want to build on that foundation for our guests.
