For all the Nevada residents and visitors to the South Shore, there is now a new sushi option: Harumi Sushi. Located in the Round Hill Shopping Center, this is a great sushi dinner option for those with vacation rentals in Stateline, Zephyr Cove or Glenbrook. If you are looking for a casual sushi dinner or lunch, this is a great place to try!
Harumi Shushi, self proclaimed as Authentic Japanese Cusine, is a little off the beaten track of tourist destinations, but that is part of it’s appeal. The restaurant itself is nothing too fancy, and is definitely a casual establishment. The room is open with lots of windows, with a large Japanese-style prints on the walls. They have two small TV’s, that are always playing sports. so you won’t miss the game. They have seating at the bar, in booths and also at square tables. The staff is very friendly, and you will be greeted immediately by the servers and the sushi chefs upon walking in the front door. You will be seated quickly, as it is rarely 100% full. This is a nice contrast to Sushi Pier, closer to the state line, where the wait for is usually an hour long wait. One downside of sitting at the bar, you still have to order your rolls through your server. So, aside from being able to watch them make the rolls there is no other benefit to sitting at the bar over a table or booth.
Some sushi joints in town over pack their rolls with rice. This means that you get full faster (and maybe spend less money), but you are not enjoying the reason of why you eat sushi: the fish! Harumi Sushi packs the fish on their rolls, and the portions are very generous for a reasonable price. In our experience, the fish has always been fresh and seems to be a high grade, and they are not as heavy-handed with the rice. There are some Yelp Reviews that do say otherwise, but as we always say, you just have to try it out for yourself! They say that you eat with your eyes first, and these rolls you will want to devour the second you set eyes on them.
As an Authentic Japanese Restaurant, they have many other options to choose from aside from sushi. The menu is very extensive, which can be both a blessing and a curse. They have over 60 rolls alone, in addition to teriyaki options and udon bowls. Appetizer options include mussels, calamari, seaweed salad and poke salad to name a few. All are reasonably priced, and a great way to start off your lunch or dinner.
For those that are not as interested in sushi, there are Teriyaki Dinner Special options (chicken, beef or salmon) that are served with Miso Soup, Salad and Rice. They also offer dinner Udon Bowls and Donburi. The same options are available for lunch in smaller portions (and lower price). They offer Bento boxes specifically for kids, with either Teriyaki Chicken or Beef.
For all you sushi lovers out there, Harumi offers selections of Nigiri, Sashimi, hand rolls and a wide variety of rolls. Their fish rolls range in price from $6.25 for a California Roll (Crab Salad, Avocado and Sweet Sauce) to $15.50 for the Noah Special Roll (Tuna, Salmon, Yellow Tail, Unagi, Tobiko, Cucumber, Avocado Futo Maki Style).
