The hole in the wall Old Town Sushi reveals itself as a great, youth-filled sushi bar. Quick and cheap, this casual sushi restaurant is perfect for small groups.

On busy B Street in San Mateo, Old Town Sushi is hidden amongst the shops. Parking can be hard to find. The food, on the other hand, is unmistakable.

Upon arrival, a customer may wait five minutes to 30 minutes. The line is generally long, and the seating is sparse. There are no benches to sit on either.

But once seated, a waiter immediately serves the table. Utensils and water are given out and within a few minutes the waiter comes around again. Orders are taken very quickly, and customers feel hungry because of the appetizing aroma.

At some points, it is hard to understand the waiter. But they were very friendly and new to repeat the orders over as to avoid mistakes.

After ordering, the food appears in a matter of minutes. Everything around the restaurant seems to be conducted with speed. It turns out to be a quick meal, ideal for lunch.

The portions run a tad large; it is great value. A hungry person can be easily filled by one bento box or an order of sushi rolls. I was left with a small box of food to go home with.

The food arrived looking very nice, almost decorative. The rolls pack a tasteful punch as well; and was appetizing, hitting the spot.

Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be fairly young. The environment caters to a younger crowd. The prices do, too.

A meal of one to two roll dishes costs around eight to nine dollars. A bento box is about the same price. The tip is also calculated into the receipt. It is fairly easy to have a group of three pay less than 30 dollars.

My whole meal at Old Town sushi lasted around 30 minutes. It was a great atmosphere and served excellent sushi. It costed very little, too.

 I would highly recommend visiting Old Town Sushi, on 100 South B street in San Mateo. I rate it four out of five stars. It is open every day of the week, 11:30 am to 10 pm.

Check out the restaurant, go with your friends. It is sure to be a pleasant meal.
