Always-bustling sushi bar and restaurant where locals flock to squeeze in or take out.
The fish served at Sai Cafe is so uniformly good that its hard to misstep. Pieces of sushi are lavishly cut, and even the fishiest fish -- mackerel, for example -- is firm and fresh. The lengthy menu includes all the sushi standards as well as specialties such as rainbow maki -- salmon, tuna, yellowtail, white tuna, and avocado wrapped around a core of crab stick -- and a startling soft-shell crab maki complete with a jumble of deep-fried claws jutting out of the center. The menu offers many hot entrees, but most customers are interested only in the sushi. The restaurants three rooms are appealing and unpretentious, as are the mismatched serving trays.
