Sushi is one of my healthiest guilty pleasures.
When we moved here from Los Angeles in the early 90s, I went through severe sushi withdrawals. This is a casino town with steakhouses, fast food and the omnipresent buffets.
Sushi bars and Indian food were what I missed the most.
In recent years, we did get a couple of good (and good is key) sushi bars in Bullhead City and Laughlin. Here’s one:
1970 Highway 95
Bullhead City, AZ 86442-6751
Maki Sushi is on the Bullhead City side of the Colorado River, located in the heart of town on Highway 95 between Baseline and Palma, across from Hastings Books and Palace Jewelry.
I love the koi pond with waterfall inside (near the register, of course — good Feng Shui), the samurai swords on the walls and the live orchids. The service is great and the wait staff actually pretty entertaining. The sushi bar artist is an AZ Cardinals fan and the game WILL be on one of the big screen TVs inside. You’ll hear him laughing gleefully when his team scores, while he creates your edible art.
They have a great selection of sushi, sashimi, tempura and even some Western dishes. My husband, who grew up in Florida, had enough seafood in his youth to not prefer it–he loves the Beef Teriyaki which works for those too squeamish to, or for whatever reason unable to consume raw fish. I’ll have yours!
We’re still hoping for Indian cuisine to arrive. Perhaps you should buy one of these great Bullhead City commercial sites and locate your restaurant here! Tandoori Chicken, Curried Chickpeas, Raita and Naan would work for me big time!
