Restaurant Review: FusaBowl - Colerain

Nearby our place up on Colerain - there is a newer strip mall that is starting to fill up. There's a Wing place and one of those pottery painting places and now - a Sushi/Grill restaurant - Fusabowl.

Fusabowl is locally-owned and started by the same family that owns another Chinese restaurant in the area. I had a really nice chat with the owner - he's so young! I love his enthusiasm though - and the concept is great. Inside - it's a super cute Ikea-type of feeling.

With the bowls and the sushi - you can create your own or go off of their menu for recommended ideas. They'll make the sushi right in front of you and get it all ready. My mouth was watering all over the window.

I got an order of Sushi and a Shrimp bowl - so they cooked that fresh as well. The kitchen is super clean and the rest of the staff was friendly as well.

Here's my shrimp bowl ($7.95) - I think they were very generous with the shrimp. Under the shrimp was rice, carrots, onions, broccoli and more. The bowl was really good and a huge portion. It lasted a couple of meals. This is the kind of meal my husband really likes - white rice, shrimp and broccoli - he's happy.

I went for a California Roll (I think) ($6.95) - again - really good stuff. I love sushi but Larry isn't really a fan - so I like having a place on my way home where I can get something we both like and I know it's fresh. I like too that they'll make it right there in front of you so you can customize it however you want.

This is a pretty basic roll but I wanted something simple - I figure if I like that - I can get more adventurous down the road.

Why Should You Go? If you're up in this area of town - it's a great option. I love that it's a young entrepreneur as well! He was super friendly and helpful. The food is fresh and the portion sizes are large. Best of all - it tastes great! I highly recommend FusaBowl! Click to add a blog post for Fusa Bowl on Zomato

  1. I need to know who the owner is. I went there for the second time on New Year's Day with my Daughter and Grandson. Arrived at 7PM, they weren't extremely busy, only two people in line ahead of us with plenty of open seating. We ordered three chicken bowls, a 6 piece crab rangoon and a Yum Yum roll. The food dribbled out of the kitchen first the crab rangoons where was fine, then my Daughter and my Grandson's chicken bowls. 10 minutes later I asked where my bowl was they went and checked on it and didn't come back. 5 minutes later I asked again when they brought the Yum Yum roll to the table and was told they had to make more chicken. Almost 30 minutes after my guests received their food I got my bowl. At this point my guests had finished their bowls. I ordered General Tso's sauce which is spicy - the sauce in my bowl was very mild, no spice at all but Tso was written on the side of the bowl so I went up and told the guy at the cash register who was so busy reading texts ignored me until I asked him to help me. I told him I didn't think I'd gotten the correct sauce that there was not spice at all in my bowl and the sauce was very mild I asked for a sample of the Tso sauce so I could taste it to make sure and sure enough my bowl was made wrong. I reminded them they had made me wait more than 40 minutes for my food and it was made wrong. He didn't offer to remake it, he didn't apologize just shrugged his shoulders. After I sat back down I saw him telling another guy what I said - again not one offered to make it correct. I was very clear I was not pleased with the wait or getting the order wrong - they didn't care. The food was very good, I really do like their food and I eat out a lot so I was hoping I had a new favorite place to eat but after their clear I don't care attitude with no attempt to make it right I won't be going back and the next part confirms this. The bill was $38.70 and I added a $5.00 tip (yeah I tipped them) to bring the total to $43.70. I checked my account this evening only to see that Fuseabowl charged my account $47.57!!!!! thus I'm looking to talk to the owner before I contact an attorney

    1. I do not know who the owner is but it sucks you had that experience. You should reach out to them on Facebook or through their website.
