    I must admit I disagree with your top five.

    The Sushi Train is… the only word I can think of is icky. Asahi is one of the best in town and it is a shame that it did not make it on to the list. I have not ate at all of them on the list, but if there was one that should have never been on this list was Sushi Train.

    It seems that no one knows about the sushi at the Bill and Ruths on Yale – 3205 S Yale Ave, Tulsa, OKâ??.

    Owned by a Korean couple – It’s been the best that I have had yet.

    Has anyone heard about or tried the new place off the SW corner of 71st and Yale called Haruno?

    Tsunami downtown was the first place I ever ate sushi and I still think it’s one of the best. Fuji is great too, and it’s not too expensive. I like ITR but I think it’s a bit over-rated/over-priced – but I guess you pay for the atmosphere there too.

    Haruno is the best I have had in Tulsa so far. The prices are more reasonable that ITR, and the decor is upscale. I actually went to Haruno directly after leaving Fuji because the food was bad, and it is now my spot. Open 7 days lunch and dinner.

    I agree with JO, Haruno is our new spot as well. They’re sushi reminds me a bit of the original Wasabi, but even better. They also have a few more non-sushi food items as well. This is a very elegant restaurant, and I hope it stays around. Oh, $5 for a california roll, $7-$10 for specialties.

    I also agree with JO and Heath i went to haruno like 4 days ago after i saw some comments from other places. When i went to haruno the food was outstanding and also the service is vvery good. I even sang some song in the karioki.
    Anyone who didnt went to haruno should really try there foods. They make you feel like your at home.

    P.S its better then ITR and Memories of Japan.
    Keep up the nice food and the service!

    J Cremeen thanks for mentioning the Bill and Ruths on Yale – 3205 S Yale Ave, Tulsa, OKâ??.

    I had no idea they served sushi there. Go figures, sushi in a sandwhich shop.

    In the Raw as #1? OMG. CMON! NO WAY!

    You have got to be kidding me. Everything there is served incorrectly… at the wrong temps… terrible sushi. Cute staff. Terrible sushi. Cute decor. Terrible sushi.

    Isn’t this known? Cmon Tulsa… I am beginning to get really disappointed with you.

    I’ve heard nothing but bad when it comes to In the Raw – so much so I’ve avoided it totally. Memories is great, Fuji’s is great even if you are paying a bit for decor, but my standby is still Asahi’s.

    Speaking of which – when do we get a review on California Sushi?

    California Sushi has great sushi! I have been several times and each time wonderful. My only complaint is their lack of consistency between rolls. I have ordered the same rolls each time and each time they are slightly different, still excellent, just not exactly what I’m expecting. They are also very reasonably priced. For an appetizer, their crab cakes are incredible!

    I’m amazed that California Sushi (formerly Asensu) has been left off of your list. The staff is fantastic and their food is always fresh, always promptly prepared, and always delicious. I can’t speak for the hipness of the restaurant, but God forbid we should ever confuse trendiness for good food.

    If you haven’t tried California Sushi, give it a shot.

    Haruno is so far the best sushi place in Tulsa, maybe one of the top three in Oklahoma. I have tried several sushi places in Norman, OKC and Tulsa. And Haruno is the best so far. I was a bit disappointed at their service on the very first day and decided never to go there but after having the sushi both my wife and I kept on going back. Their Service also have improved a lot now that they hired more people. I just simply love that place, I am going there tonight :)

    I judge a sushi establishment on variety of sashimi present. I always order Mackerel, and Kama (yellow fin collar). I can’t find either of these in Tulsa.

    Tokyo in OKC has them though. I really enjoy that place.

    Oh! I just looked at haruno’s menu and they may have what I’m looking for, I will go there asap!

    I enjoy eating at the Sushi House on 71st and Lynn Lane in Broken Arrow! I have has Osakas and didn’t not like it. My picky husband and my hard to please cousin ate there and they love it too! They serve a 3 course meal and the owner is always there making sure you are happy! ^_^

    My bf and I decided to try out Haruno on 71st and Memorial Drive today and was very disappointed. We ordered the “sexy sexy,” “flaming volcano,” “volcano,” “seared tuna tataki,” and the “seaweed salad.” It wasn’t all that great, for example, the sushi dishes we ordered were all falling apart so it was hard to eat. The “sexy sexy” was ok and the “flaming volcano” was pretty cool because it was served flaming. The volcano was terrible. It was as if you took all the ingredients of the sushi and just poured it on a plate. Ummm…. I don’t know if they were trying to make it look like a volcano, a messy look? But it sure did not show the appreciation of serving sushi or serving food in general at a public restaurant. In addition to that the sushi under the volcano lava look was cold and the ingredients poured over it was warm/hot. We didn’t even finish it nor did we eat much of it.
    The service was ok, but compare to other restaurants I’ve been to, like Sushi House; I would have to say it was bad. They don’t really smile, don’t speak loud enough for you to hear, and when you’re done eating with a dish they aren’t timely to get your dish out of the way and ask you how is everything tasting or checking up on you in general.
    I don’t recommend it and will not go back there.

    One more thing about Haruno, they did not give us any ginger or wasabi, which is pretty standard with sushi.

    I have eaten at ITR and was not that impressed with the quality of the sushi. I have also eaten at Fuji but never had the sushi (going friday night) BUT I must say that my favorite place for sushi just happens to be in Stillwater. A place called Negoya OMG so many wonderful rolls and the prices arnt out of this world. Hate that they dont have a place in Tulsa because im sure I’d be there daily! If your ever in Stilly you should try them out. Have the Hawiian roll!

    We always go to fuji’s (on 71st) brookside’s location has HORRIBLE service.

    I must disagree with your top five. The Sushi Train has no right to be in the top five, nothing good happens when you leave raw sushi on a toy train for hours at a time. The best sushi restaurant by far is The Sushi Place in downtown Tulsa. The 918 Roll and the TSP are the two best rolls I have ever had. Fresh food, great service and a clean establishment.
