Sushi Kim Restaurant Review

: When Korea-born Kim arrived in Pittsburgh, he opened a tiny restaurant with a four-seat sushi bar. He now has double-digit seating at the sushi bar and an upstairs all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue. Fresh, well-prepared sushi and sashimi come in various combination platters and boats of all sizes. You’ll also find cooked Korean dishes on the menu, but the cook-it-yourself buffet operates on Friday and Saturday evenings. Situated between the Strip District and downtown, Sushi Kim has an eclectic clientele comprised of visitors, students and others.
