OYAMA Sushi in Iowa City is terrible! I remember eating there several years ago and remember liking the sushi at this joint, and as I recall, the service was great too. Well, one day, the boyfriend and I decided to re-visit the restaurant just for a change in pace.
I should have known better than to eat sushi from a restaurant situated right next to a pet store. The food tasted like it was either dog food straight out of the can, or created from a special blend of all of the dead fish floating at the top of the tank at the end of the day.
My boyfriend was lucky and ordered a bento box with teryiaki steak. They did a decent job. It was eatable at lest. My order on the other hand was gut wrenchingly disgusting! My spicy tuna roll tasted like it was canned tuna with a bit of red food coloring added for the "spice" appeal. My other roll was a mish-mash of soggy unknown products with rice caked on thick all around it. Yuck!
The final verdict: I have to admit, the service was decent, but that was only because we were almost the only ones in the restaurant. The food, on the other hand, was something I would not wish upon my worst enemy!
