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.

Had late lunch with my wife and son on a Monday afternoon. Seemed like there were not a lot of choices for sushi in Carmel and this was close. Food was not bad, but it was ordinary sushi, nothing special. Service was good, atmosphere was nice, and the portion size was on the small side. Would not go back again.

Very friendly and attentive staff. We had to wait a few minutes for a table and it wasn't a problem. I ordered the Red Dragon roll and it was delicious and everyone was given miso soup with their order. They have a robust menu and there is something for everyone. The fish is fresh and tasty.

Not the best service and not so great on the, out of the water type of fish. I guess we should go to the sea if we want sushi in this town.
