Sho Sushi & Izakaya, at 6583 S. Parker Road, offers all-you-can-eat sushi, sashimi and Japanese dishes. It sits on the northwest corner of Parker and Arapahoe Roads, one of the busiest intersections in Centennial.
With 30 years of restaurant experience, Chef Sam Ahn opened Sho Sushi three years ago. Last December, the restaurant began its all-you-can-eat menu. Lunch starts at $25, while dinner costs $35. For $40, diners can select the premium menu, which includes Ika Geso (Squid Tentacles), fresh oyster, oyster tempura, and miso black cod.
Sushi lovers will enjoy the wide variety of high-quality seafood items. Reservations are not required but weekends are busy. Visit the restaurant’s website at shosushico.com to check out their menu or follow them on Instagram @sho.sushi.izakaya.
