I love sushi and I love steak. It goes without saying I adore Ah-So Sushi & Steak.

One of the fancier restaurants at the Yuma Palms, Ah-So combines traditional Japanese cooking with Western culinary sentiments, creating a dinging experience both savory and satisfactory.

The full dinners, such as the chicken teriyaki, are prepared right in front of you. The chefs are masters of their art, putting on a full show including edible volcanoes made of onions as well as dexterous maneuvers involving spatulas and knives.

The sushi is awesome, well prepared, usually heavy on the sauce which is a bonus for gluttons like me, and you definitely get what you pay for.

That said, Ah-So is a bit on the expensive side, with dinners ranging from $17-40. The rolls are less expensive but just as fulfilling, and they’re usually what keep people coming back for more.

Boasting a creative drink menu, patrons can sip on the customary water or go for something more daring. I’m particularly fond of the Velvet Dragon, which mixes White Zinfandel with strawberry puree.

Service is smooth but depending on the crowd, slow. Not the staff’s fault! With such an amazing array of food and drink, it can be tough to get your food in a timely manner. Luckily I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve been salivating by the time my food arrived.

Ah-So has always been a favorite for me, and bet that I’ll come back. Whether it’s a date to impress, a luncheon or just a fun night out with friends, Ah-So is awesome.
