Fuji Sushi House is a hidden gem of Japanese flavor nestled in a small shopping center right in the heart of Lafayette.
Fuji Sushi House may not be the easiest restaurant to find, but the incredible food served by Ms. Ginger and her staff will make your search well worth the effort.
The restaurant is located at 4416 Johnston Street, Suite 8 A, in Lafayette, LA, right off of the Camellia/Johnston intersection, tucked in between the CVS and nearby Peking Gardens. (You will need to turn almost immediately after Billedeaux Hearing Center to enter the parking lot).
Upon entering the restaurant, you are immediately greeted by the owner Ginger, who opened Fuji Sushi House after working at Shinto. The dining area is intimate and quaint, with both table and bar seating. The atmosphere is inviting and warm, and the staff treats you like family, and truly want you to enjoy every bite you take.
The menu is incredible – everything is fresh, made to order, and there is a wide range of dishes. The Tuna Tataki appetizer is a favorite of regulars – its spicy, almost steak-like flavor makes you think you are at a 5-star, high-end Japanese restaurant, not one where the prices are affordable and everyone is welcome.
There is a great selection of entrees, from the beef teriyaki, to shrimp tempura, to noodle dishes. The rolls take up the bulk of the menu’s real estate – Ginger and her staff use quality indegrediants such as fresh tuna, snow crab, and eel, to create rolls that are both incredibly tasty to eat and beautiful to look at.
Ginger has been known to take pity on those not famililar with how to use chop sticks, and to provide “cheaters”, except she called them “helping friends”. She is incredibly friendly and makes a point to let customers know that they are family, and that she makes sure that no one leaves hungry. Fuji Sushi House is a great place to have lunch or dinner, whethere you are solo, on a date, with family, or having lunch with clients or co-workers
