Excellent Sushi, Unfortunate Location

Unless you were dropping off some items at the Goodwill, you probably wouldn’t even know this Japanese restaurant existed; its location, in the Southgate Plaza of Lafayette Rd in Portsmouth, NH, is a bit obscure. But if you’re in the vicinity of Water Country, and in the mood for some Japanese food, Shio is definitely worth the visit.

I had Miso soup, Spider Roll, Crispy Tuna Roll, and Hamachi and Maguro Sushi, which were all delicious.

We went with some friends, who had been several times before and highly recommended it. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. They have several tatami (semi-private “rooms”), but they fill up quickly, so reservations are recommended.
