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

We came into this restaurant around 6 pm with two kids falling asleep because of jet lag. We put in orders for donkatsu and udon and they arrived literally 5 minutes later. The bilingual waitress who took care of us was extremely efficient and quick. We couldn't decide what to order, so we ordered all of the selections available as... More

A beautiful view of the ocean and the outdoor seating was nice. It is in a great location if you are wanting to walk the little town. The food was average but the price extreme. Sadly two of us ate, spent over $70 and left still hungry. The portions are small so if you are wanting to eat here, be... More

One is a tempura shrimp kind which was so so as the shrimp was not crunchy. The other is a spicy fish which was good. The main course was a seafood stew. It had lots... More

We had a delightful lunch on the patio of Restaurant Shimbashi. It was a beautiful day, and the patio allows a view of the ocean. Ambience does count. No worries about the food. We ordered variety of dishes, and al were terrific: from the seafood miso soup to sashimi to tempera to skewers to udon. We will definitely return when... More

What a nice surprise. Walking up some stairs towards the sound of music from a bar not far away, I've chosen this restaurant for dinner a Sunday evening on a terrace face to the sea. I've enjoyed and excellent sashimi with fresh fish, and great rolls, the "La Fresca Roll" and the "Celebration Roll". I was so delighted I took... More

Very average sushi. I have had much better sushi in California, but this wasn't what I look forward to when coming here. One of our party insisted on inside dining, but the outside dining looked quite inviting. The inside parking garage is very convenient & I like the Del Mar Plaza in general.

This is one of my families favorite places to eat. We live in La Jolla and when our kids are home, we head up for our fix. We love that it's authentic Japanese food. This "style" considered a "fast food" in Japan, hence the name and tradition at transit stops.
