I ordered a rice bowl with spicy tuna and vegetables and the ceviche appetizer. Normally, these are two dishes I enjoy immensely in places. I was disappointed in both. The pita chips are not good, the ceviche is very small (and does not need the sauces). The rice did not taste good or have the right consistency, and the spicy tuna did not taste fresh. I almost never throw food away but I was not able to eat much of this. I realize it may just be hard/near impossible to serve these type dishes in a fast food environment. Most people seemed to order rolls, maybe these are better. Perhaps stick to rolls and forgo the rice bowls. Add tortilla chips or something better to your ceviche appetizer.

My fiance and I both got a roll called the "3 alarm" and I told him I didn't think it was very good but he thought it was great. I had a few pieces left so he ate one and said it was gross and that it tasted completely different from his...made no sense to me because we ordered the same thing.

I had been to this location several times before the GroupOn, and was always pleased with the outstanding fresh sushi. At that time, you went through the line picking out the options you wanted on your roll (much like you would put together a taco or burrito at Chipotle). The rolls were very large and very long - you got 10 large delicious pieces. Now, HDYR has changed several things up...the rolls are thinner and shorter, getting only 8 small pieces, and you have to order your roll, pay for it, and then wait for the servers to make the roll, taking up lots more time for preparation. Yes, the cost went down by $1 for a roll, but now instead of getting full off of $9, I have to get two rolls and spend $16...or get one roll for $8 and get another half meal when I'm hungry at 2:30. The Manager said they've made these changes and added things to accomodate people who don't eat sushi...seriously?? This is a sushi venue - if you don't eat sushi...don't come here. Unfortunately, I will not be back until they go back to how they originally ran the business.

I always been here and satisfied with sushi quality. Last week, when I was there using my groupon (Houston downtown location) and was very disappointed to find out they have changed the way taking order and i couldn't see when they making my sushi....they make mistake on my sushi and sushi is so much smaller than before, they forgot to add x-tra nutritien which i paid for, since i take to-go so i can't do anything a/b it. I spent $11 for sushi but it isn't as good as the one sold at HEB....:o(

From Our Editors

In 2008, brothers Yuen and Peter Yung opened the first How Do You Roll? restaurant, devoting it to inventive, customizable sushi. Just five years later, the eatery has expanded to multiple locations across four states—including a spot in Houston, in the tunnel under Commerce Towers. There, chefs invite customers to build their own sushi rolls or bowls, beginning with white or brown rice, which can then be topped or rolled with ingredients such as raw spicy salmon, grilled chicken, avocado, and strawberries. Sauces such as wasabi mayo and toppings such as chili powder finish off each roll.

Diners can also opt for one of How Do You Roll?’s favorite recipes, such as the Mango Tango, whose krab stick, salmon, vegetables, and mango salsa are assembled by a chef holding a rose in his teeth. The menu also caters to healthy-minded hungers with low-carb bowls, gluten-free options, and 13 rolls that contain fewer than 300 calories apiece.
