Amazing ambiance! Recommend an outdoor table bee tried a ton! Highly recommend the avocado tuna salad, spicy tuna maki, and yellowfin tuna with jalapeño. We had 2 anniversaries, and they surprised us with 2 dessert plates. Great meal, great service, priced appropriately for the quality and ambiance.

Didn't order any sushi but rest of menu is extensive with great choices. Sukiyaki has high quality beef and not tough at all, soup stock is very tasty. Service is good and best of all, authentic Japanese staff.

We had a dinner in this restaurant during our business trip to San Diego. The place was cosy and the service was very friendly. The sushi and other servings were nice and tasty but maybe not authentic Japanese style but surely this restaurant is suitable for everyone who like Asian food.

Really. For $17.00 it was enough for my husband who was VERY hungry. We made the mistake of also ordering two Kappa rolls as well as edamame... way too much food. It was all very good. As a side note, we are from Hawaii and have relocated to Arizona, so this was a great treat for us.

We always enjoy their wonderful sushi and small plates. Their Chirashi Sushi is classic excellence with Uni, ikura, and tamago as part of the great variety found in this sushi specialty. My husband enjoyed the two-layer bento box which also included miso soup. We also orderd a Tekka Roll that had a more than ample amount of maguro. The ambience... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and the meals were excellent. We have ordered both hot food and sushi and they were great. I eat sushi about once a week and this is some of the best. The restaurant is a little on the pricey side but it is located in Del Mar... More

Stopped in while touring the coast, absolutely AMAZING. great view, awesome friendly service and the food was out of this world good. I dont mind spending $ for amazing food and when i hesitantly ordered the Japanese bluefin tuna which was $25 for 4 pieces of sashimi (which came highly recommended by the sushi.chef and the server)...i loved it so...
