Ok...as I move to GR, I realize I'm not coming to a sushi mecca. But I'm sure there are some places that are better than others. Where would you suggest I go to try some places out? Are what places should I absolutely avoid?

Thanks!

I just moved out of Grand Rapids...you're right, definitely not a sushi mecca. As always, avoid the china buffet-style sushi places. I wouldn't trust it.

There's a place called Mikado, on 28th street that has good sushi, considering the location. It's worth a try.

^^ Agree with Mikado. Its been in Grand Rapids for a while, and a place I frequent when I got back to visit. Its a solid place, given GR's other options.

I like Tokyo Grill on Breton at 44th.
It's still not the best sushi ever or anything like that but it's the best we've found.

Mikado is much better than Tokyo grill. There is a sushi place on Monroe center downtown but the name escapes me. There is this amazing new place in Centerpoint mall of all places. It is a sushi buffet for $9 which is an insanly good deal and the sushi is made by the owners right there. The owners and the staff are all really nice and attentive. You can still order sushi by the roll, called Oysy.

Shogun on Breton at 28th is good too. With all respect to brbie419, I still east at Tokyo Grill instead of Mikado because I prefer their service.

Marado is the place downtown on Monroe Center. It's good, but has no liquor license so you cannot do beer/wine/sake if you're into that with your sushi.

As mentioned above, Ming Ten is probably the best Chinese Buffet on the east side of town. It's got sushi, but it's a buffet. I wouldn't go there for the sushi.

There's also Sushi Yama downtown inside the McKay Tower at the corner of Monroe Center, Monroe and Pearl St. It's quite good in my opinion and the place I end up most for lunchtime sushi.

Does anyone know when the electric eel is supposed to open? I've got a feeling that place is going to be good.

I'm going with Tokyo Grill for sushi. I've never had a bad meal there, food or service wise. I would not go to Kobe for just sushi. More like if you want the Japanese steakhouse/hibachi experience, and maybe order some sushi as a side.
