One of the “signature” rolls was a hit; the TST Roll is a spicy combination of tuna, scallion, crab, and cream cheese. Another easy favorite is the spicy tuna roll with scallion and cucumber and spicy sauce. We say, order a mix of raw and tempura to get the best variety and taste of what Hook’s has to offer.

Hook’s Shushi Bar & Thai Food It’s four o’clock on a Wednesday, and the crowd is gathering outside the door of Hook’s Sushi Bar and Thai in St. Petersburg. Wednesdays are dollar sushi night, and it seems there’s almost a cult following. The Hungry Family is always up for a new taste adventure, and this casual little spot fit the bill perfectly.
There’s a tempura style appetizer plate that that might be all you need for a meal to share, but you’ll want to try a variety of rolls, as well. The youngest in our family (he’s a preschooler) loved the tempura broccoli, but he was a big fan of the Mexican roll as well, which matches tempura shrimp with asparagus, avacado, scallion, and massago (and is a bit spicy). Our all-time favorite was the Spider Roll, which features a tempura soft-shell crab with with asparagus, crab, avocado, and masago.
If you dive into the sushi boat and still have room for more, the Japanese Red Bean ice cream was a hit with our whole family (and while the Tempura Cheesecake was delicious but overthe-top for mom after a sushi feast, the rest of the crew highly recommends it—even if it’s all you order!). When you’re a big family who loves really good food, it’s often difficult to find a great restaurant with a setting that’s still family-friendly. Hook’s is a venue that makes it easy enjoy a night out, even with the whole crew, with an appealing mix of young singles, datenight-couples, and local families with kiddos in tow.
