Great Japanese Food

My favorite sushi place in San Diego. Fast. I always get takeout so I can't speak to the in restaurant service, but they have my take out ready in 10 minutes. I enjoy the Combo Chicken Teriyaki which is a lot of food. It comes with Shrimp Tempura, soup, salad and a California roll.

Sometimes when I drive by the back of a restaurant I judge it before I get inside. My husband is the sushi guy, I'm the chubby tempura girl. You can ask them to slice the tempura veggies thin and they sometimes will. The sushi isn't awesome and 2 times it was even o.k. But save your sushi dollars for somewhere... More

Best thing to do sit at the bar and ask for them to make you something special!!! Joey has always been the best. He'll ask you what you like and don't and then make something just for you. I always buy them a drink and leave a good tip. So fresh and yummy

The food is just excellent. Their hamachi Kama (yellowtail collar) is out of this world! Really big and very moist. Reasonable prices and employees with excellent attitudes for sure!! Not open on Sundays, but a real treat the rest of the week. And unlike many sushi joints, this one does NOT close between lunch and dinner. Plenty of free parking,... More

Slow service. Very dirty. Dishes piled up in the kitchen. Flies everywhere. This is not sushi. Food is a disgrace to Japanese food. Should be condemned immediately.

When we drove by, it did not look like much. A well worn building, but we were hungry. Inside the place was full despite the deferred maintenance interior. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. They were perfectly willing to modify anything on the menu to your personal tastes. The food was absolutely excellent. The sushi & sashimi could... More

We have tried and still try others but always come back to IB and Meijo's. The staff is great and treat us like family. The fish is fresh and... More

I am not a sushi expert, so while I liked my sushi fine, I don't know if it was great or not. What I did like was the teriyaki chicken bowl and the atmosphere. Totally friendly staff, they'll do anything you want. I sat at the bar and they took care of me quickly and nicely. Came back to check... More

Outstanding sushi freshly prepared in a fun-filled atmosphere AND at incredibly low prices. You can pay more elsewhere, but why? This place knows how to prepare a wide variety of oriental dishes - they will even make rolls to YOUR specifications. Great place for family eats.

Some of the worst sushi I've ever had in my life. The rice tastes totally unseasoned, there's way too much of it, the seaweed is stale and the fish is tasteless.
