It was reported in March that Spring-based restaurant Q-Shi BBQ and Sushi—which was featured on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” earlier this year—would be expanding to The Woodlands area this summer. However, owner Ray Aker has since pulled the plug on the anticipated FM 1488 location, said Alisha Jessa, public relations coordinator for Q-Shi BBQ and Bistro.
Although a Woodlands-area location is no longer in the works, Aker is planning to open another location in Spring within the next six months, Jessa said. This location will have a casual ambiance with a circular sushi bar at the center of the restaurant for patrons to watch the sushi chefs cook, she said. An exact location has not been announced.
Additionally, Aker is looking into opening a bistro location, similar to the proposed location in The Woodlands, in the Lake Houston and Atascocita area, Jessa said. No additional details are available for this location at this time.
In the meantime, Q-Shi BBQ and Sushi at 1491 Spring Cypress Road, Spring, is still serving its signature sushi rolls and rib baskets.
