Looking for a change, we headed to Fort Lauderdale on a shushi hunt with another couple. As we walked around we asked a lot of people where to find good sushi and someone told us about Saia in the B hotel by the beach. After a few beers we mozied on over. The inside was clean and smelled good. I have one rule about sushi places, if I walk in and it looks dirty and smells its time to hit the road. Saia looked inviting and we sat down and ordered.
The bar was good and they made all of our drinks perfectly. We downed the round had another and ordered. My app was the Saia Stir Fry and it was gone in seconds. Tasted great and everyone was picking at my plate. We almost ordered another but switched it up and went for the rice cracker tuna. That too was outstanding! Perfect balance of fish and fry. For the main course, I ordered the knock out roll and the ocean blue roll. The sushi was super fresh and the best sushi I ever ate in Ft Lauderdale. We picked at each others plates and sampled everything. I did not eat one thing that I did not love. In short, the atmosphere was great and so was the food. Being a sushi freak, I am very critical when it comes to sushi but this place passed the grade and the drinks did their trick. Enjoy Saia, see you soon!!!
