Yokoso to Sapulpa, Sushi One!
Fresh sushi rolls, fried rice with various meats, and authentic ramen bowls are just some of the great items you’ll find at Sushi One’s new location in Sapulpa!
Sushi One is just what Sapulpa needed. Located at 808 East Taft Avenue (just east of Ken’s Pizza), fresh sushi rolls, Hibachi grill entrees, fried rice with various meats, authentic ramen bowls, and other classic dishes and appetizers fill their large and varied menu. The staff is friendly, helpful, and clearly very experienced in their trade; the restaurant space itself is small, but clean and comfortable, and it is entertaining to watch Sushi Chef Xue Feng Chen make the rolls fresh while you wait!
We first tried the Hawaiian, Sapulpa, Rainbow, and Spicy Crabmeat rolls, which were delicious and fresh, and the Chicken Fried Rice, which is a tasty, familiar dish for the sushi-shy. Other family favorites now include the Jalapeno Langoon (an Asian-style jalapeno popper with just enough heat to make it interesting), Crab Puffs (like a crab rangoon at most Chinese restaurants) and the pan-fried Gyoza (pork dumplings) with a savory garlic soy sauce, as appetizers. During future trips we explored the menu further to try the Sex on the Beach, Nemo, and Spider Rolls—the Nemo being our ultimate favorite.
An interesting selection that we would like to try are the lunch special Bento boxes, which are served until 3 p.m. every day. They range from $8.95 to $10.95 depending on the main course (everything from chicken teriyaki to sashimi), and include soup or salad, the daily appetizer special, steamed or fried rice, and 4 pieces of a California roll. (Substitutions are available for an upcharge.) This sounds like a great deal and a fast way to get a healthy lunch during a busy day!
They also have a lunch roll combo where you may choose any two rolls listed for $10.95 or any three for $14.95.
Additionally, the menu includes Donburi, a traditional rice bowl served with shrimp or chicken; fried rice; stir fried noodles, teriyaki entrees, tempura entrees, and Hibachi grill combos. Many of the above also come with your choice of soup or salad and steamed or fried rice.
Our suggestion is to study the menu and call in your order ahead of time to cut down on wait time. They are especially busy during the bustling lunch and dinner rush, and a large order can take up to thirty minutes to be ready. But with such quality food freshly made to order, can you really complain about wait time? We think not.
Prices range from $3.55 for the Avocado Roll to $23.95 for the Seafood Combination Hibachi Combo Dinner, although the average classic sushi roll is $5.95 and the average Special Sushi Roll is around $9.95.
Sushi One is open daily. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m to 10:30 p.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. You can call in your order to: 918-347-8262 or fax your order to 918-347-8272.
