We ordered vegetable and tuna rolls for takeout. They were freshly made, light yet filling, and delicious.

Having come from MN, my expectations may have been too high. I always hope for the most flavorful sushi near the coasts when I travel, but find that all to often it is no tastier, no cheaper, and no better presented than the average sushi restaurants in MN. This is the case for Sushi Mori. We had the chef's choice... More

We are from Vancouver and love sushi and sashimi. Everything at Sushi Mori was delicious and beautifully presented. We especially loved some of their innovative partially cooked items. Their fresh wasabi, chopped up like salsa, was new for us, and the perfect accompaniment to the tempura items.

Went to a group of restaurants at avenida de la Playa in La Jolla Shores, we had seen heading to the beach earlier. Sat outdoors in table set on the well landscaped sidewalk. The setting was great the food greater and at reasonable prices and friendly waiter staff. Will definitely make it point to return often.

Went to grab a casual bite at this Sushi place after doing a bike tour of La Jolla. Was nice to eat outside along the street and see everyone walking by. A local favorite.

Had the teriyaki bento - which had some fab vegetable tempura. Sashimi was out of this world. Good location, nice service.

We had a dinner here during our stay in beautiful, quite hilly, La Jolla. Our service was excellent - kind and prompt, sushi was delicious and beautifully plated. Loved the roll with baby lobster on top. Was SO good and so tender. We had four specialty rolls and loved them all! Loved the garden patio atmosphere, especially when the string... More

We had a lovely dinner here; the restaurant doesn't look like much but the food was outstanding quality, and incredibly tasty. The only thing we didn't like were the green mussels - mussels cooked in hoisin and topped with more seafood. The mussels were overcooked, dry and stringy, and even apart from that didn't do anything for the dish. But... More
