Sushi/Sashimi survey

well even if they eat at the bar, they would not thank the chefs for following reasons
1. chefs don't usually wear masks, and they still talk
2. they are mostly Chinese, makes big sushi, even if the restaurant is Japanese-like, they don't know the tradition of sushi/sashimi themselves

California roll is good I agree, but no I was more into manners of eating sushi =)
