Overpriced average food in a cramped space – Without using too many adjectives in an attempt to sound intelligent, I can recap my experience, and compare it to other sushi dining experiences.

Chiu's sushi's food tastes just fine, actually it was quite good. However, it was terribly overpriced. In comparison to my favorite sushi spot, Asahi Sushi on Broadway, Chiu's is literally twice the price, no exaggeration. A basic 6 piece maki roll at Chiu's is 7.95, same thing is 4.25 at Asahi. For the same price at Asahi you can get the lunch special during the week 11-3, which entails 2 maki rolls and miso soup, which is the best. Furthermore, edamame cost 4.75 or 4.25 at Chiu's and is 2.25 at Asahi. Asahi gives you twice the edamame for half the price, FOUR TIMES THE VALUE. Please bear in mind that Asahi tastes just as good and is decorated in traditional Japanese decor, including servers in Komonos. Chiu's is cramped even when no one is there, it feels like your in a closet.

If you are one of those yuppies who has a disease of the brain and is wholly convinced that if you pay more for something it must be better, or you are a better person for doing so, then go ahead eat at Chiu's I pity you, and suggest you check out my favorite spot on Broadway, you'll love the people and the environment.

As its name implies, raw fish is the star attraction at this modest, Harbor East eatery. – The Scene
Servers in kimonos, orchids on tables and a fountain of koi do much to camouflage the institutional nature of the space. An earthen-colored treatment disguises the cement floor, while dramatic fish-shaped windsocks distract the eye from the brown drop-ceiling. Other whimsical touches--like several waving cats, which symbolize good luck--lighten the overall tone.

The Food
Ingenious sushi rolls are the standouts on a menu that also includes tempura and teriyaki entrees. The Godzilla roll's firm tuna, mild yellowtail, velvety avocado and zingy sauce are wrapped in rice, then encased in crispy tempura batter; the Rich roll packs a spicy kick of local flavor by jazzing up snow crab, lobster and shrimp with chili sauce and Old Bay seasoning. In stark contrast to the originality of the sushi, the teriyaki--which can be ordered with beef, fish or fowl--is marked by a bland sauce and less markedly fresh ingredients.
