Song’s Sushi provides fresh sushi and other Korean and Japanese cuisines to the Dayton community. 

The Restaurant

Song’s Sushi is a sushi bar that serves Korean and Japanese cuisine made by one of the owners, Hyon Ambern, also known as Mrs. Song. She, along with her husband, Robert Ambern, own both Song’s Sushi and Song’s Barbershop. 

Unlike the barbershop, the sushi bar has only been around for the last seven years. The barbershop customers encouraged Mrs. Song to open Song’s Sushi.

“A lot of people [from the barbershop kept] asking for a good Korean restaurant,” Mrs. Song said.

Favorites of Song’s Sushi

Most of Song’s Sushi customers are locals and returning barbershop customers supporting the restaurant. 

“My favorite is the bulgogi,” Kaylee Raines, a local returning customer for Song’s Sushi, said

Hollie Jones’ favorite sushi roll is the Airforce Roll. It is set aflame for a few moments before being blown out. 

Song’s Sushi’s Atmosphere

The atmosphere of Song’s Sushi is quite relaxing and enjoyable and pieces of both cultures are visible along the walls of the interior. Along with small figurines of both Japanese and Korean design, customers also get a welcoming feel of a small diner amongst its booths and small family-sized tables.

“The environment is vibrant, friendly and fun. The staff is very kind and I enjoy talking to them about Korean culture,” Raines said.

Not only is the atmosphere relaxing and able to be enjoyed, the employees of Song’s Sushi are nice, kind and highly professional in their work environment according to Raines.

“We always have the best conversations,” Raines said.
