Does not disappoint! Budi Sushi is an open concept restaurant with the bar right at the front when you walk in. The food here is delicious. The rice to fish is adequately portioned in their rolls and the terminator roll is HUGE, I highly recommend. The sushi pyramid is a work of art and it tastes even better than it looks. Another must-try is the Rolling Stone Roll
Expert tip: The sushi pyramid is good but also try the the Lobster Fried Rice and Mochi, delicious!

District M is a 140-seat sushi restaurant that offers a few different omakase options. Chef Jackie Chang, formerly of Umi in Buckhead and O-Ku in Westside, leads the kitchen and sushi bar at this new upscale Japanese restaurant in metro-Atlanta: District M. Each course is presented beautifully and the sushi is very fresh. If you’re a basic sushi eater, like California rolls, I would not recommend this place. But if you’re willing to drop a few bucks on a more sophisticated menu, then this is your spot.
Expert tip: There’s more to this intimate, upscale restaurant than just sushi, give the Miso Glazed Black Cod a try, it’s amazing.
6125 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs
Hidden gem! Ocean Wave is very modern and chic spot with a nice neighborhood vibe. The Thai Spicy Basil Leaf Stir Fry is really good. The sauce is moderately spicy and very flavorful. I also recommend the Fried bagel Roll it is amazing!
Expert tip: If you like cocktails, the Lavender Fields, organic vodka, lemon juice, lavender syrup, and simple syrup, is really good.

For those who love sushi but don’t like sushi prices, Ru Sans is the perfect spot. They have very affordable sushi and the service is always great. Everything is served buffet style with a variety of options.
Expert tip: Go for the lunch buffet, it’s cheaper and there is a great spread to choose from.

THE ONE SUSHI +
Located in Brookhaven, The One Sushi + serves up fabulous sushi. The Spicy Tuna on the Rocks is wonderful, the cocktails are delicious and the patio is great to enjoy when the weather is nice!
Expert tip: Order the pork buns as your appetizer, you won’t be dissapoointed.

EIGHT SUSHI LOUNGE
Eight Sushi Lounge has really stepped up their game. The rolls and nigiri are craft-fully prepared with great flavor. The ambience is nice and the staff is very attentive. Sushi is never inexpensive, and Eight Sushi Lounge is at the high end of the price ranges, but worth it.
Expert tip: Start with the Eclipse cocktail, it has a wonderful flavor and nice burn.
