A very large group of Central Pa Sushi went for sushi and hibachi last sunday. I could probably be so bold to speak in saying that sushi wise they really kicked it up a notch, serving some rolls in martini glasses and adding over 15 new chef rolls to the menu. The sweetheart roll was to die for (spicy tuna topped with tuna shaped like hearts) and the three different kinds of dragon rolls (we tried the black one and the mango one, both nice). Some of the nicest sushi I have had in this area.

Hibachi was just a hit and miss for me.  Made fresh veggies although not as seasoned as I like but we enjoyed the show, you must want a lot of interaction because they will toss food at you the whole night, not to mention squirt sake in your mouth til you are drunk (might not always happen but last week the chef was mad, in a good way).

Service was super friendly, with a party of 25 we had atleast 4 servers asking us if we needed anything at all times. Was a really good night, great sushi and for a great price.

Tonight the Central Pa Sushi group went to Wasabi on Willow Street to try out the sushi. I’ll start by saying the rolls are perfect presented, neatly rolled and delicious.  Not to mentionthe prices are great, the sushi combos were well under 18 dollars and no one walked away hungry.  Wasabi is a Japanese restaurant with nice interior design, very comfortable and pleasant place to eat. There are a number of regular tables, as well as a few tatami tables (low table where you take your shoes off and sit) and a sushi bar. The staff also gets an A+ in my book, they were very welcoming and friendly, adding to the already positive environment. I think we all agree that we will be back again.

Last night we had sushi and hibachi at Sakana on Patton street. As far as quick reviews go it did have quite a nice atmosphere for hibachi, the chef was very nice even if he did drop his cooking utensils a few times this is one of the top places for hibachi in the area. Sushi wise they do not have a huge selection, they really have nothing in the way of combos and dinner specials,  although their chef rolls were tasty, generous portions of fish and a very fair price. Some of us had a mix and match sharing hibachi and a few rolls. We had about 15 Central Pa Sushi  members out for an enjoyable Thursday evening.

Tonight Central Pa Sushi Meetup and I (the organizer) went to the Olive and Jasmine Asian Bistro in Lancaster. Having visited a majority of the Japanese restaurants in the area, I would have to say that Olive and Jasmine is one of (if not) the best restaurant of its kind in Central Pa. When it comes to atmosphere this place really surpasses the competition. The one thing this area lacks is the dining experience, most of the sushi places are either cafe or diner style establishments. Olive and Jasmine has nice decor throughout and a lovely private dining room for larger parties. The Dynamite Green Lips (spicy mussels appetizer) was simply delicious, best dragon roll I ever tasted and when it comes to other sushi on the menu I highly recommend this place in Lancaster to anyone that likes fresh assortment sushi platters because they offer so many varieties of them. The menu is quite extensive serving sushi, Thai, hibachi and Malaysian.

For a party of 18 they did very well service wise. We will definitely be back.
