Despite its aggressive name, this sleek, two-floor Japanese spot is actually about sustainable sushi and is careful about what types of fish it uses and where it comes from. Full details on where all the fish comes from can be found in the back of the menu. So you can eat there happy and healthy, even if you're splurging on the all-you-can-eat option.

I love this place! Go here regularly all the time. It could be a little bit cheaper but their lunch sets are good value for money. I also love how you can order a mix of Kush and Sushi Abuse. The deep fried sushi from here is the best I've ever had.
This is one one of my favourite restaurants! I want to start by saying that I'm a vegetarian so that might sound a little odd but this place is great. I ALWAYS order their tofu sushi, it's rice wrapped in tofu skin.. a little dip of wasabi and soy sauce and I'm in heaven. They also have really nice avocado and egg sushi. They also do a the vegetable ramen without meat for me which I adore. The miso soup has shells in it so I don't recommend it to vegetarians. My fish eating friends all love the place and the fish does look good! They have a special cocktail that has a hint of wasabi in it.. such a nice kick!
I really adore the design of this place, especially the big huge table upstairs. I also love that they play Hayao Miyazaki films on a projection screen upstairs, just without sound.
Menu is quite extensive and I'm sure real sushi lovers will like it!
Abuse... of the customers! The service here was horrible. Could hardly be worse. It was more like we were a bother rather than customers. It was bad service mistake after bad mistake. It took them forever to tell us they didn't have our dish, etc, etc. In the end, we asked for the bill to pay so we could leave asap. The waitress misunderstood and thought we wanted to give her a tip. Her response: "No, the service was bad so I don't deserve a tip". The good thing is that she realised that the service was so bad. The bad thing is that we were just trying to pay so we could leave asap (and still hungry), not to leave a tip.
Food-wise, Sushi Abuse place is average. And for the cheaper dishes, they are cheap quality, too.
I would aviod sushi abuse just from the awful service. Far worse than the average in Shanghai. They should train their staff!
I've been to Sushi Abuse twice now and I have to say that the 248 RMB all you can eat deal is epic with a few slight issues. I don't want to sound like a negative Nancy so I'll start with the positives: The service while a little understaffed are very attentive and friendly. I've been told I'm charming before but the entire staff was kind and made eye contact with not only me but all the other patrons near where I was sitting (Sushi Bar area). Refills on beer, sake, plum wine (win!) are plentiful and they also give you an option of a Infinity cocktail. For the most part the Sushi was fresh which was something one can detect with octopus. If octopus is too rubbery then it's been on ice to long but the tentacles they were serving here were primo,
For the negatives, after about the 30th order of Sushi/Sashimi we ordered (we go big on the all you can eats) the consistency of the sushi rice seemed to be structurally flawed. Near the end of the night I saw the Sushi chef pour way to much vinegar into the wooden rice bowl he was using (sorry I don't know the technical term) which in turn made each piece of Sushi he crafted crumble when you picked it up.
Also, on Infinity menu (the name of the all you can eat option) they offer Norwegian Lobster which in reality is something that would be known in the States as craw fish. It's not that their being deceptive but if you walk into the restaurant unaware of what a Norwegian Lobster was then you might be disappointed.
If you look past these minor flaws Sushi Abuse is a definite treat and value, thus another reason on my list of why I'm fat.
I went with friends before a long night out, as a change from the teppayakis (sorry for the spelling).
A quite welcomed change.248rmb with free flow of beers& sake and unlimited food.
I think the food selection is tight but well chosen, quality of the food is ok, the meat was pretty good, the rolls and the tuna tartare as well.Not the best sashimis tho, but i don't think you're going to this kind of place to be the the harshest culinary critic...
All in all a good deal, a bit more sophisticated and researched than most teppanyakis, and the place is nice, modern and comfortable.
