The chefs at Genghix Asian Fusion craft a menu of attractive dishes that explore the intersection of Japanese, Thai, Chinese, and Korean cuisines. Start a meal by toppling a savory tower of sashimi-grade tuna tartare ($8) hewn from bricks of spicy tuna and mortared with wakame seaweed and avocado. A vast range of entrees sate a panoply of possible hankerings, with dishes such as the spicy, deep-fried Warrior chicken ($10) and the onion-bedecked Bouncing filet mignon ($16). The garlic-black-pepper tilapia ($15) chromatically complements a side of sautéed greens and rice, just like a cyan wall enhances the hue of a hamster's violent red eyes. A legion of nimble-fingered fish-rollers handcrafts nigiri ($4+) and maki ($4+) rolls, as well as more elaborate Chef Special rolls with majestic aliases such as the Lion Queen ($12), Godzilla ($14), and Loco Ninja ($8).

Japanese cuisine is as much a form of art as it is a delicacy, and the chefs at Little Madfish put their creative talents on display while crafting more than 50 unique sushi rolls. Bento-box lunch specials combine teriyaki meats with delectable sushi, and sushi party platters feed 3–8 people or one shark too lazy to gather its own seafood. Diners can complement their meals of teriyaki-slathered chicken or braised short ribs with sake and imported Japanese beers.

Though Iron Sushi authentically executes standard maki recipes such as the california, spider, and alaska roll, the specialty here is the unexpected. Like pets and favorite washing machines, many of the restaurant's specialty rolls have human names?such rolls as the Eddie's Special, made with shrimp tempura and cream cheese, and the Hannah Roll, which combines soft-shell crab with sweet unagi. The more adventurous might choose the Avocado Special, a roe-topped tower shrouded in avocado slices that's accompanied by the simple description, "chef's secret." More than a dozen appetizers let diners prelude maki meals with classic Japanese dishes such as agedashi tofu and wakame salad.

Time is of the essence at Angel Fish Restaurant. Every season, its chefs change up their selection of small plates. Fresh fish arrive daily. And for one hour during the week, Angel Fish treats its visitors to a combination of early-bird specials and happy hour sake.

On any given day, though, there are some things you can count on. The kitchen produces sushi, sashimi, and complex but comforting entrees such as nabeyaki-udon noodles with clams, chicken, vegetables, and a poached egg beneath a shrimp tempura topping. For each bite, diners can thank Chef Takao Minatoya, who has been experimenting with traditional and contemporary flavors since man started eating fish way back in 1998.

Kane Sushi's alphabetized specialty sushi menu stretches from A to T. Or, 420 to T, to be more precise. The 420 Roll contains avocado, tempura shrimp, masago, tuna, and unagi. At the other end of the alphabet, the Too Hot for Sheila roll holds extra spicy tuna and avocado inside, and hamachi outside. In between the two, a huge spread of creative sushi rolls offers something for every palate: crab meat and tempura shrimp with garlic (the Nuclear roll); tobiko, kaiwarei, and salmon (the Marcei roll); and a baked california roll with spicy scallops up top (the Mac and Cheese roll).

But chefs don't just work with raw food?they also prepare kitchen entrees. That means deep-fried chicken, whole-grilled squid and beef ribs, and teriyaki.

To make Groupon customers feel like they're big in Japan, Meiko Sushi is offering a special menu (a $50 value) just for them. After opening with two bowls of house salad and a plate of gyozas, friendly waiters will sing "The Circle of Life" while parading out a lion-king roll (a California roll baked with a fillet of salmon). Once your guard is down and your mouth is open, they'll light the fuse on a firecracker roll (a maki roll of spicy crab meat and cucumber buttered with avocado and Siracha hot sauce) and toss it in. Closing with a golden California roll (a crispy, deep-fried California roll garnished with flying fish roe, scallions, and the sweet house sauce) gives the crackling palate a smooth come-down, particularly when washed down with two shots of cold fruit sake (or if you're under 21, green-tea ice cream). Vegetarians can swap the selected rolls out with more herbivorous vegan rolls, broccoli rolls, and kappa rolls. Finicky fish eaters, meanwhile, can do the same with Philly rolls, spicy tuna rolls, and tempura rolls.
