About the Menu -
Like Japan, Peru has a millennia-old history. They are two great, ancient civilizations with two major culinary traditions. These traditions complemented one another, and neither of the two sides absorbed the other to the point where one disappeared. SusherÍa menu is the result of this great union and the experience/vision of Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld and his dedicated culinary team lead by Peruvian Executive Chef Javier Angeles-Beron.

About the experience -
Susheria is a unique casual-glam restaurant concept where you will enjoy Izakaya, a Japanese style of service. The Japanese version of tapas, dishes will be served when ready. Izayaka is a perfect moment to enjoy life, laughter and great conversations while sharing food and drinks.

Our server was sweet, accommodating knowledgeable, courteous and professional. The food was out quick and some of the best we’ve had. Wonderful place innovative but relaxed and unpretentious

Overpriced ordinary food. Friendly staff and appealing atmosphere. For what it is, one can get better value for money elsewhere.

Such a terrific dinner. Went for a birthday celebration with a group of ladies and the restaurant welcomed us with open arms. The food and cocktails were fantastic and the service was great. Don't miss the mezcal pineapple cocktail and where do I begin with the foods. Top picks from our night include: chicken gyoza, salmon and tuna on crispy rice, sushi rolls (one was better than the next but the one with beef and the one with lobster on top were our favs). The honey chicken bowl was so good! Desserts were great too - the custard and the cheesecake were unusual twists on classic desserts. We will be back. Great spot.

Unfortunately the service in this restaurant was terrible. Given it was almost empty a drink order shouldn’t have taken over 30 minutes and the server barely knew what she was doing. It became frustrating at times. The food was good but not worth the frustration.

We had an amazing experience at Susheria for a date night. The food was delicious (we got the veggie gyozas, Amazon roll and tofu and eggplant nikkei bowl). Our server Ilsy was exceptional - she made excellent drink recommendations and even ordered us a dessert on the house! We will definitely be coming back.

Love Susheria because it’s such a unique concept - where else can you get Peruvian and Japanese fusion? Plus, the inside is really gorgeous. I love all the plush seating and the ambient light. The food itself tastes amazing - the chili honey chicken bowls incorporate red peppers, cilantro, and wasabi with honey chicken on a bed of rice. It’s the perfect combo - we order it every time we visit. The service is also great, as the wait staff is always very attentive.

It was great food and service, however I wish they hadn’t seated a large table of teen girls next to us. It was hard to hear my boyfriend when we were trying to have a nice night out. I wish they were more aware and didn’t seat large parties next to small tables.

This was our first time at Susheria. We loved the restaurant and the energetic atmosphere. We had some difficulty ordering. We wanted sushi, and the waiter confused it with a "sushi roll". He made the correction. We also had to wait a bit for the main course. However, the food was great...we will go back.

The service was great from start to finish, yes we belong to that loutish group of Americans who slather their sushi with wasabi and ginger, though we are perfectly aware that you are not supposed to do that, and our desires were graciously accommodated. There are a few items with interesting twists but it's not too crazy and we like that too, sometimes you feel that the kitchen is trying to be inventive just for the heck of it, but here it all made sense.
My only complaint, the tables are really very close together and we felt slightly nervous all evening, one has become used to a bit more distance. That said, we did notice the tables being scrupulously wiped down between guests. I would go again, but probably not until after covid, assuming that ever happens...

I had never eaten Peruvian-Japanese, and this was a lovely first experience! The sushi tasted fresh and delicious (and this is coming from someone who isn't the biggest sushi fan), and the aji de gallina was 100% a can't miss item on the menu! We sat outside, and the outdoor seating area was very cute and actually not very loud, when you consider we were next to the street. We had no trouble hearing each other or peacefully enjoying out meal. Overall a great experience and a pretty solid price for the high quality food and drinks we got! I would recommend this restaurant for anything from a casual dinner to a special date night.

The Ceviche was OK too.

What an incredible experience! We went to celebrate our anniversary, and we were not only able to be seated early but we were greeted with 2 flutes of champagne. Everything we ate was incredible, and our server had the best recommendations. Our server was so attentive and also just hilarious. We’d highly recommend Susheria to anyone - we’ll definitely be back!
