Sushi in town

Is there any places in the area doing sushi? If so were are they and how's the food?


POSTED: 2005-05-11

Two places I know of are:

Dave's Sushi - on Bozeman Ave a couple blocks north of Main St


Jadra's - located inside Looies Down Under at Downtown Main St

Both places are pretty good.

Dave's is the place to go. Great sushi, reasonable prices, large protions with enough fish in them. Jadra's makes microscopic sushi, lots of rice, not fish.

Picked-up some sushi at Dave's while visiting---portions are huge. Staff was friendly. If I move to Bozeman, I know where I'll get my sushi. One thing---the soy sauce could use more kick.

I think the Montana Fish Company on main street also has sushi.

Watanabe has good sushi, too. It's next door to Enterprise Rental on Main Street (next to Subway).

I found Dave's and Jadras to be excellent. DIff dining experiences, but yum. ANd this is coming from someone who likes sushi.

I found the Japanese restaurant to be really good with Japanese style food, but not with sushi.

I must respectfully disagree, with the poster above about Watanabe's, I found their sushi to be superior to both Dave's and the place in Looies, it's the real deal.

This is from someone who's been eating sushi for 20 years and gone to Japan several times. I do agree with the poster above that they have excellent regular Japanese cuisine at Watanabe's though.

I guess I'm saying give Watanabe's a try, it's great and it wont dissapoint, it's a little hard to notice from the outside, but just remember it's across from the highschool on main.

I give high recommendations to Dave's Sushi. Always superiorly fresh fish, wide selection of both traditional and unique maki creations, and reasonably priced. Out-of-town guests from large cities consistently have remarked that Dave's is as good if not better than the local sushi available to them. Having had sushi in places ranging from Seattle to Boston, I can testify this is true.

I do not recommend Jadra's. Their fish always tastes old, their portions are small, and they have little selection.

I have not tried Watanabe.

The new Japanese place across from the high school on Main street IS AMAZING! The sushi is actually better than dave's which is good! Kudos to an amazing sushi experience, I am going there every week for now on! Delicious, fresh and wonderful service.

I am the poster who said the sushi at watanabes wasn't good and at the time it was true. However I went there recently and was amazed. I too come from a large city with a large asian population and watanabes is now top of the line. Very much improved, or maybe I just went on a bad night?
So I guess I need to eat my words! I will for now on go to Watanabes across from the high school for sushi.

Watanabe offers fresh, succulent sushi. When we were together, I got my now ex-boyfriend a dinner from there and he complained - but it smelled and looked wonderful; he was just one of those guys who could never be happy.

I also like Dave's and Jadra's. If you want atmosphere and good sushi, go to Jadra's. (Jadra's also has all-you-can-eat crab legs, which are very good.)

I like Dave's, but sometimes I get the impression that I'm treated differently because I'm not one of the Bozeman crowd.

POSTED: 2008-09-14 18:12:23

I've never understood why everyone like's Dave's so much, way overhyped. There sashimi is tiny, ragged, and often cut with the grain, rather than across. Yeah, they used to be cheaper than Jadra's, but I went recently and prices were close to the same, and in some cases more. As always, the service was terrible, the waitresses are haughty and somewhat slobbish. Jadra's isn't great, but still a lot better than Dave's

POSTED: 2009-12-22 20:36:12

Whatever you do DONT GO TO SEVEN SUSHI!!!! The owners are arrogant and stole their ideas from Dave's sushi. The one kid used to work there and stole Dave's ideas altogether!!! The portions are much smaller and way more expensive!!!! Do yourself a favor and go to Dave's off of Main St or try Watanabe's across from the high school.

POSTED: 2011-03-06 22:53:18

dave's is AWFFUUUUULLL. Took an out of town friend there and was completely embarrassed...service was bad too. seven sushi was better, IMO. Watanabes so far the best. Jadras was ok.
Don't go to daves/

Oh my God, eat at your own risk from 7 sushi!!!! I got extremely sick from eating there and ended up in the hopital the next day needing an IV!!! I called there to try and get ahold of a manager after the incident, and some brainless server or hostess told me it was my problem! Can you belive that?? Those people have alot to learn in the customer service department.

POSTED: 2011-03-21 23:38:38

Watanabe hands down.

POSTED: 2012-11-01 19:31:53

Absolutely try watanabes! Ok so the decor is a bit plain but they are the best sushi in Bozeman with good service.

POSTED: 2012-11-20 20:19:31

I had the impression Jadra's had folded. Maybe I need to go look? Meantime, I find Watanabe's sushi completely delightful, and eat there whenever I get a chance. I think the reason it's so good is that the owner, Ted Watanabe, ran a restaurant in Japan and learned how to please experienced customers. Although I have a tendency to order sushi, I find the noodle dishes and the tempura to be nice when I feel like something different. Business used to be slow, but quality attracts customers, and these days it's pretty darned busy. Try the inarizushi. Sorry, you topers: it's right across from the high school, so no sake. (I never miss it: I go there to eat.)
