Babo Sushi in central Sairee serves up fresh raw fish to visitors daily.  Their menu is filled with sashimi, sushi, and creatively rolled makis that will make your mouth water.  The restaurant is small and has limited space, so if you know you need a sushi fix call ahead and reserve a spot.  The complimentary ice cream at the end of the meal is a very welcomed touch.
