Ambiance of the Restaurant

Sushi Zushi Austin provides an open and intimate dining experience. The room is dimly lit which provides a more intimate feel at night and during the day the sunlight pours into the room to give it more of an open feel. The ambiance that you want is going to depend on the time of day you go. The tables are also set up so you feel very open and seen and yet close and comfortable to your party.
