At Sam's Sushi Bar the sushi is good, the portions are generous, and the prices dirt cheap. But there's a catch. Your first clue is the handwritten sign at the entrance that says "Only Good Customers." You see, Sam Katakura, the owner and the only person working at this tiny hole-in-the-wall in Printer's Alley, is quirky, often cantankerous, and easily irritated. Locals don't call him the Sushi Nazi for nothing. If he doesn't like you, or if you don't play by the rules that are posted on the walls and at the bar, you won't be served. Annoy him and he's liable to kick you out and lock the door behind you. Seriously. Check your ego outside, read the rules, be patient and polite, and you should be fine.
