High quality ingredients

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

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
