Great Food!

Had a nice lunch there today. Staff is great and the food is very good! Very fresh! I probably eat there about 2 a month but usually request take out. Today I decided to eat in. Sat at the sushi bar and chatted with the chef. Everyone is very friendly. Check it out, they will not disapoint.

We went on a Tuesday night, the nigiris are fresh but the rice of the rolls were not cooked to its perfection, a bit loose and the rolls we ordered actually came apart. The rolls are relatively smaller compared to Bay Area standard but also priced cheaper.

Ordered 4 rolls. They were all small and tasteless.If I closed my eyes, I couldn't tell you what was in each roll. What the heck? Pediatric sized! The cucumber salad had no dressing. The staff can't speak English, so expect a lot of misunderstanding. Don't waste your money. Their quality has diminished. Probably trying to save money.

While enjoying the Carmel restaurant scene, my wife and I felt that we would like to try a sushi restaurant. We selected a number of them from the telephone book and reviewed them all and selected Sushi Heaven. We couldn't have been happier with the quality of the fish and the service. The restaurant is clean and was practically full.... More

We needed a quick stop for lunch in Carmel and made the right choice with Sushi Heaven. The lunch combinations were sufficiently sized and quite affordable considering it's in Carmel. The only item that seemed as if it was pre-packed was the ebi tempura: such a different coating and lower level of quality than the rest of the tempura -... More

My husband, 5 kids and I went to Sushi Heaven while we were staying in Carmel and all agreed it was one of the best restaurants we ate at during our month long visit! The sushi was excellent and very innovative. Ambiance was terrific. Service very good as well. If you go, make sure you don't go on a Sunday... More

While staying in Carmel I promised my daughter,who loves sushi, that we would eat some. Checked out reviews and decided on Sushi Heaven. What a great choice that was. The four of us ate a variety of different sushi so we could share. The food and service was very good and a great value to top it off.
