Fish is not always up to my standards in this place. Creative dishes and nice cocktails, though! Iif you are not a sushi purist you can be very happy here.

I went to rawbar for a sushi class 3 weeks ago. I had no idea what sort of level of effort goes into making one of those rolls! From the rice prep to the fish prep to the rolls themselves, I have a brand new appreciation for how good sushi is made. Highly recommend the Sushi 101 class.

I love going here for sushi. I love the appetizers. Which one? All of them. Salted edamame is great. I LOVE the miso soup!!! Any of the rolls are very good. The staff is always polite, happy and efficient. I love the blood orange martini. Delicious!!. Have to restrain myself. The layout of the restaurant allows you to see people... More

Great location in downtown Chico with wonderful sushi! Fresh fish, traditional and innovative menu. Great wine and sake list. They also offer sushi classes which are a really good time, and Darren (the owner) is a great teacher! Even though all the sushi is fantastic- try the shortribs appetizer- you won't regret it!

My husband wanted to come here for his birthday. We came on a Monday around lunchtime and it was relatively quiet. The waiter, host, and manager were all attentive and friendly in an uncloying way .My husband ordered some specialty rolls - one a lemon roll, and his favorite Japanese sushi, a caterpillar. He told me that everything was delicious.... More

This is not the cheapest place to buy sushi...for good reason. They serve very generous portions of fish, and the sushi is always excellent. Well worth the price. You won't be disappointed!

I was never a fan of sushi, until my friend took me and introduced me to this place. The food is so delicious, such a variety to choose from and the best part is that they have more than just sushi on the menu, for those people who don't like sushi. Always a nice atmosphere, though it can be a... More

My wife and I went out for an anniversary to the Raw Bar recently. I almost always order sushi, but on this occasion we ordered a selection of small plates. The spring rolls, a ho-hum dish at many restaurants, were very tasty and the dipping sauce had the right balance of sweet, hot, and vinegar. We also had Korean tacos,... More
