Not worth the wait.

The service is VERY slow and not too friendly. The sushi wasn't very good and the restaurant is somewhat run down. The cheap plastic menus were sticky and dirty, the walls need painting and it is just nothing great.

We went for the teppan. The lowest price price was $18 for tofu and veggies it was very flavorful. The rest of the teppan menu was above $23 for one meat or seafood and over $27 for two meats for one person. The meals for all but the tofu one had shrimp appetizer while all had had soup, salad, veggie... More

Only issue is service. It is awful. But they are really japanese people serving awesome food. So plan to be patient and join the teppan grill or sit at a table or the tiny sushi bar, relax and enjoy. Emphasis on RELAX. If you are in a hurry, forget it. Prices are good too.

For years, Fuji Sushi was right around the corner from me in the San Fernando Valley. When it moved two hours away to Big Bear, I thought I'd never taste that beautifully presented sashimi, perfectly rolled sushi, or comforting miso soup again. But on a recent trip to Big Bear, I had my birthday dinner there and was delighted to... More

The food was average to above average. I mean I wouldn't go to a skiing mountain for Japanese food necessarily, but it was good. The language barrier was marginal, but I wouldn't say I would never go back to this restaurant.

Our party of 5 (3 adults 2 children) sat at the Hibachi Grill table on the Thursday before NYE. The place was packed and getting busier by the minute. There was only one server for the whole restaurant. She was awesome, we had decent service throughout our meal. She ran her butt off to make sure everyone was taken care... More

We eat sushi often and I have to admit we were a little afraid to try it in Big Bear. But it was excellent and we will definitely go back again! I had a rainbow roll with salmon, tuna, and yellow tail and it was fresh and delicious. The servers were very kind and helpful when we asked about certain... More

We looked at reviews on line and decided to try it out. The food was good ... when we got it. It seems unless you are the Tippan Grill portion of the restaurant the servers forget about the general seating. The night was not overwhelming and they had plenty of staff. It started great with immediate Sushi service but then... More
