A savory success in Tacoma, Flying Fish has swooped into south Auburn.

Uisup Lee, who opened his popular, award-winning sushi restaurant and sake bar on Tacoma's North Pearl Street seven years ago, has found a second home along Auburn Way South to serve up an array of Japanese, Korean and Chinese entrees mixed in artful presentations.

"We're trying to do something different," Lee said. "For customers, there are few places to go to enjoy food like we have here. We concentrate on fusion style and focus on the younger generation.

"We're all about freshly prepared food and high customer satisfaction."

Lee should know. The Gig Harbor resident has more than 30 years in the international trade business. He spent much of his career importing and exporting fish throughout the world for a Korean company.

Looking to try something different, Lee became a restaurateur who pays close attention to detail and listens to the needs of his customers.

Flying Fish Sushi & Sake Bar offers an imaginative menu replete with traditional favorites, from the basics to the specials. There are Korean dishes, chirashi, hot pot soup and noodles, rolls of many spices, origins and descriptions, fried, grilled and baked dishes, donburi bowls, yaki u-don, sashimi, temaki hand rolls, nigiri sushi, a seafood plate and a bento special.
