Michi Sushi

July 19th, 2009 by Stacie Tamaki

For years I’ve considered Michi Sushi to be one of the best Japanese restaurants in the South Bay when it comes to really delicious (albeit kind of pricey) sushi.

The original location is at 2220 South Winchester Blvd., Campbell, CA. Michi Sushi now has a second location further down the same street at 2455 Winchester Blvd., Campbell, CA 95008. It’s funny (odd) that this is just one of two restaurants that have two locations on the same street. Krung Thai also has two locations within blocks of each other.

This is the interior of the original Michi Sushi. As you can see it is very nicely decorated with a large salt water aquarium at the far end of the room.

As soon as we were seated the waitress brought us an order of edamame.

I had the miso soup. It was good which translates to not too salty but salty enough.

For Lunch I had a single sushi roll called the Orange Blossom. It was fantastic: Sake (salmon), avocado and unagi, wrapped in more sake (salmon) and finished with tobiko, thinly sliced green onions and freshly ground up macadamia nuts with unagi glaze. It was delicious! But this single roll is priced at $22. Was it worth it? Yes. Could I have this every week? Not really. But as an occasional treat it ranks high on my list.

This restaurant is decorated so beautifully. If ambiance is important to you I really think you’ll enjoy the interior.

Here is the Tatami Room. Note how the bench has space beneath the table so that if you choose to you can dangle your legs as if you’re sitting at a regular table.

This is the exterior South facing wall of Michi Sushi. If you’re in the mood for great food and can afford to splurge a bit I don’t think you will be disappointed. I’ve been eating here for at least the past 6 years and have always received great food and service.
