Wow, I'm a salmon guy and the Sake is superb! That's the sashimi salmon, but the hot sake warms as good as it tastes! Pair it with a large Sapporo on a foggy PG night. You won't notice the cold.
The food was actually quite good, but the adjustments they've made for the pandemic seemed a bit unwelcoming and bit confusing. I can only assume that take out customers are their priority, and dine-in (outside) customers are tolerated.
Good food not expensive. Would love to eat there again whenever we’re in the area.
Luv it! The waiter was wonderful.
Very slow service but it's a given with Covid going on. Very excellent sushi, you can tell the fish is fresh from the get go!
As always, Zum was EPIC.That is a word not used often. Each visit is great. Clean, friendly and OPEN. Show up early dinner...5PM for patio seating. Same DELICIOUS sushi keeping with the times.It made me SO happy to have this comfort back. This visit was for my youngest sons 20th birthday. I asked what he wanted and Zum was what he said.They, yet again, didnt fail to satisfy. Worth every penny, we enjoyed a family experience we have missed for too long.If you havent been, go. Life is too short not to have this experience at least once. Zum.
Cute little spot with a few outdoor tables while you wait during COVID. The workers were lovely and helpful. Good solid sushi, it wasn't anything crazy, but we were in town on a work trip looking for a place to eat, yelped sushi and all the reviews seemed spot on.
Had their sushi yesterday. we come here often and over the years the quality has gotten worse and worse. Yesterday, we ordered sushi to go. Ate it. And now we are paying for it. Massive stomach pains. I want to continue liking and supporting Zum. But once a restaurants food gets you sick, I can't support them anymore. Come here at your own risk.
This was the third sushi place we ate and compared for dinner, I like that the don't have such a vast overwhelming menu!They have pictures which help in deciding and this place always has a line down the stairs and into the sidewalk for take out orders. The staff is friendly most of the time, some might just be overwhelmed with the dinner rush. Definitely go during the day or you'll be waiting around as dinner time is extremely busy for a long time, watching people eat and pick up their food orders.
I drove from CV Village to get takeout from here based on friends' recommendations and I was not disappointed. Ordered 4 rolls and 2 tempura apps for my hubby and I am it was more than enough food for us. Somehow in the 30 minute drive home the tempura stayed crispy and the sushi stayed fresh!
We cannot get enough of Zum. It has been life changing since we discovered it. We go almost weekly, even through COVID they've been extra safe and still offer great food. Sometimes people in line get frustrated by the wait, I just tell it's worth it. There wouldn't be a wait if it wasn't good food. We tell everyone about Zum. My go to sushi place in town.
We ordered sashimi combo, a few rolls and a couple of nigiris to go. Yes, all the glowing reviews were right on. We left a nice cash tip and when we opened all the boxes, we were smiling from ear to ear. They were beautifully presented and smelled fresh. I called the the restaurant to thank them and also to add additional 20% gratuity. When we were ready to eat, "no soy sauce? No chopsticks or even a napkin?" I called back and the lady was very apologetic and drove down to our hotel to personally deliver what we needed plus a poke salad. They made it right. I understand how challenging it is to change gears from table service to expediting to go orders during this time. Now, onto the food. Sooooo delicious! We will be back!
The chirashi was tasty and fresh and mixed zone roll was good. Was not impressed with fire fighter roll. They told me 20 minutes for pick up but ended up waiting another 20 minutes there. Make sure to ask for soy sauce and chop sticks. They didn't put any in the bag.
Ordered ruinedTogo order missing chop sticks and soy sauce. Portions on the small size.
Great service & fresh
