1. Don%26#039;t add soy sauce too much into a shallow dish.

* Some people who can%26#039;t taste sushi tend to flavor sushi with too much soy sauce so they think they can taste sushi. But they are not tasting sushi, but soy sauce. And these people also tend to put too much soy sauce into a shallow dish. So don%26#039;t add too much soy sauce into it.

2. It%26#039;s always good to order green tea, sake or Japanese beer.

3. Don%26#039;t put too much wasabi into soy sauce.

Again some people who can%26#039;t taste sushi have a tendency to add too much soy sauce AND wasabi. You don%26#039;t really need to add too much wasabi. Otherwise, you will ruin the flavor of sushi.

4. Don%26#039;t put soy sauce on sushi rice but raw fish if you order Nigiri.

5. Eat pickled ginger to reflesh your mouth.

6. If you want to eat sushi like how Japanese people do, order Nigiri and gunkan maki more than long rolls and hand rolls.

* Because these days, eating sushi has become trendy, so many people try to eat sushi. But if you order long rolls more than nigiri, you will become the typical American who just tries to eat sushi.

7. If you don%26#039;t know what to order, just ask a sushi chef which one is good to try first. People who usually go to a sushi bar tries to communicate with sushi chef...well at least that%26#039;s what Japanese people do.

8. If you get a hot towel, use it to clean your hands before you eat sushi.

There were a few decent suggestions here, but I%26#039;d like to add one.
Don%26#039;t pass up yellowtail if they have it and it is absolutely fresh. It%26#039;s very mild and melts in your mouth like butter.
Eat sushi with the fish side down so you taste the fish before the rice.
It is considered gauche to dip the rice portion of the sushi into soy sauce; only use a tiny bit on the fish. You can add wasabi to the soy sauce. For beginners, the ratio should be about one part wasabi and 10 parts soy sauce. Use the low sodium soy sauce to compliment the sushi best (it%26#039;s the one in the green-topped bottle). The regular stuff in the red-topped bottle is WAAAY too salty.

Usually order about two rolls and one or two things of sushi. Or if your feeling brave, order a thing of sumashi, which is just the raw fish. You%26#039;re not expected to eat everything, but you want to have a little verity.

Ordering is just like a normal restaurant, some places give a card where you can just put a the number of each item you want.

The cheaper rolls are often the safest ones to try, flavor wise. Philadelphia and California rolls are the most common. My favorite is the Spider Roll. Don%26#039;t be afraid to try something new. Being scared to try eating what you got is half the fun.

Most people I%26#039;ve gone with seem to like eel a lot. Sounds gross, but it%26#039;s tender and not slimey. (unless they cooked it wrong, then it%26#039;s a little chewy)

It doesn%26#039;t matter if you eat them with chopsticks or a fork, but you are supposed to eat the pieces in one bit. But if the piece is huge, cut it all you want.

Well, Sushi ROLLS are what you%26#039;d typically think of as sushi, rolled in the seaweed. People say start with Cali rolls because I think they dont contain fish, but honestly, I hate Cali rolls. If I were you Id try something that says tempura fried on it, with yummy things like Cream Cheese in it. MmmM! Those are the best. So read the descriptions. Crab, Shrimp, all good....

Another kind is ngiri, which is just a piece of fish on top of rice. Sometimes, depending on the quality of the fish, can taste a little fishy to me...but I do love eel. It comes with sweet tasty sauce on it....try that. I wouldnt try anything else really...

The other kind is sashimi. That is JUST slices of raw fish. Tuna is expensive, or Toro (the underside of the tuna) and my hubby LOVES it, its a little too %26#039;raw%26#039; for me...I like to have other flavors and tastes....so if you%26#039;re REALLY adventurous, get some sashimi!

Chances are you%26#039;ll all choose something different and try a little of everything. Be adventurous. Use chopsticks if u can. Usually you eat it in one bite, but some are really big....so 2 will do. If you dont like a certain kind, dont swear off sushi, just try something else!

Yeah, definitely ask your friends or the server for suggestions. You should look at how big the servings are. If you%26#039;re ordering sushi, people usually order 2 different things because you get several pieces of each.
