Hot Tuna Miami


Rock-n-Roll cabaret/sushi/Japanese joint in South Beach.

What we had:

My DH and I went with a few friends. We had the edamame, California Roll, Rainbow Roll, a simple tuna roll, a soft shell crab roll, some other form of tempura roll, a himachi & jalapeno roll with crispy garlic chips, lobster and wasabi mashed potatoes, saki, and mixed drinks.

The food was impressive. Granted, I have been lax in my sushi-eating since making the move to Miami, but this was pretty great. The quality was spot on-the sushi chef, not so much (our rolls fell apart). The mixed drinks were really good, too. I had a sunrise something--orange vodka, grenadine, fresh OJ. A couple of our friends also had pineapple upside-down shots, which they said tasted just like really good, really fresh pineapple.

The lobster mashed was awesome and a big hit with everyone. Mental note: lime goes great with edamame.

The rolls also came with interesting dipping sauces--a really good pineapple, a light peanut butter and some sort of ginger. The pineapple was impressive. It had a bit of heat, but just enough to tickle the back our your throat.


Nice. Nice black gator-print leather (the tasteful small scales style), ambiance, "hot" girls dancing on the bar to rock songs (we were disappointed--no corsets and fishnets like on the website--but, hey, beggars can't be choosers and all that).


Our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and adorable. She was great at up-selling without making it obvious.

Overall impressions:

We'd totally go back again. This is a great place to take out-of-town guests. Definitely an experience. The bill wasn't terrible, either. Our bill only averaged out to $40 per person.
