    What an amazing experience! Booked this for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. The sushi was so fresh and was created with such skill to watch. The chef was great and he explained every piece of sushi he served. He also got gave the guests sake shots on him! The ambiance was great with good disco music. We had a 6pm dining so it was not crowded at all. I would def’ go back!

    What a delightful culinary journey! From the moment we stepped in, the atmosphere whisked us away into a realm of relaxation. The staff, with their kindness, made us feel like royalty. And oh, the food! It was beyond amazing; each bite of sushi was a flavor explosion that left us in awe. The presentation? Simply stunning! This place doesn't just serve food; it crafts edible masterpieces!

    Second time dining here. We had the 18 course oMakasi. Memorable experience, just wonderful. Every morsel chef song prepared, was sophisticated, culinary delight. Chef was attentive to our needs and accommodated our modest request. Love Rachel the hostess. Her vivacity and assistance may the evening all the more pleasurable. Drinks were great! I’ll return.

    Excellent Staff and Bartender, high chair bar seating for Omakase. Chef was amazing, communicated great regarding what we were getting and very skilled in their knife work. Standard Omakase itself was good, adding a la carte items rather than going for the more expensive course was a good idea as well. Chef will check for allergies prior to starting the course. Noise level is moderate, music playing in the background you only hear if you want to during a moment between conversation. Disco vibe, Studio 54 motif, was fun and the place was nicely air conditioned during summer. Non-Alcoholic options available as well. Come early and be prompt as seating is very specific and courses are well timed. We never felt rushed, pace was very smooth but you have to be aware that there are diners coming in behind you. Street parking available both metered and free, north of the restaurant up Bell blvd. Only critique is that the Omakase bar counter itself could be a scooch longer as it looked tight, but didn't feel tight when you were seated. No glass partitions so you will be next to people. Bartender area was separate from Omakase area though tips are shared by all. Overall a great time and we will be coming back.

    too rush to finish 18 course in an hour and never been have experience so rush. The chef should wait for customer to finish one course then provide another course. The birthday mochi present in the middle of sushi course which is not accepted at all. They should go to other restaurants to get more experiences. They even charge Mochi fee for the birthday celebration without Notice. They charge is fine, but need to be in advance to tell the customer. Totally disappointed and will not recommend to any friends to go.

    The chef was great. The food was delicious and fresh. The service was good too. However, the restaurant overcharged me with two orders a la carte of the Big Mac. I was charged with five Big Mac when we only ordered three. Please make sure you review your check before you pay.

    Very friendly chef and staff. They took care of my kid who was a picky eater and she loves the food, and the attention too

    Sushi by Bou is an exciting new edition to the Bell Blvd. restaurant scene. The Omakase is excellent. The signature cocktails are delicious and the staff is attentive and kind. My husband and I can’t wait to go back!
