The Most Tantalizing Sushi in Rochester, New York!

Baconator tempura shrimp sriracha cream cheese avocado bacon topped with crispy fried onions bacon and eel sauce


Best sushi I ever had. My daughter got the Philadelphia Roll with salmon and I got a spicy tempura shrimp roll with coconut. Just fabulous. My husband got the Fish Fry which was a huge and thick piece of fish breaded with an awesome crunchy crust. The fries were also great. Highly recommend! Beautiful location by Charlotte pier on Lake Ontario.

My favorite sushi roll is the Rochester Roll, and the crab rangoon.


My wife and I came for the live music, 52nd Street Experience. Excellent tribute to Billy Joel. Chris Prime IS Billy Joel! Outdoor patio seating on a beautiful sunny day. Great food and service. Located right at/in the Port of Rochester building on the Genesee River.

The food was delicious! The live band kept the crowd going and cheering. Our serves were awesome and always a smile and helped whenever needed. Would definitely return!

Decided on California Rollin II after deliberating over 7 other places, and it was so worth it! Anthony absolutely finessed our sushi, and I devoured my plate. This only solidified that this is my favorite sushi spot in Rochester. Fantastic job!
