Have enjoyed this restaurant many times, but this past weekend it was a let down. Tried to order wine off the menu, and both times was told that they had sold out. No other options were offered. Love their Duck spring rolls, but this fabulous item was taken off the menu. Ended up leaving......

This was a suprise great evening because of course my wife but sure also the great extra ordinary sushi. This is adventure not traditonal sushi restaurant. If love adventure, fashion, the new world. You be at the right place otherwise please go to a kind of Mc Donald. Any how for us it was great.

A very small, hole in the wall, place with original, unusual, and delicious sushi, sashimi, and fusion sushi. No reservations accepted. If you do not want to wait you need to get there at 5 PM when the place opens for dinner. Prices are higher than other places but the food is better. The restaurant does not have an earth... More

242 is a great little hole in the wall in Laguna right on PCH. This place serves up some very original tasty japanese fusion rolls & sashimi. Recommend dining at the sushi bar, especially for 1st timers. The staff is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The fish is always very fresh, there is a great selection of cold Japanese beers and sake,... More

This Laguna whole in the wall use to be a regular haunt until today. While the food is highly original japanese fusion with some great tasty rolls, the long wait for the table and unexpected lousy service do not make it worth the visit. We waited 30 minutes for beverages (with some not even served), and much longer for food.... More

This place is super quaint with a great night time view and open window breezes at small tables and sushi bar. The yellow tail was insane! I will go back on next visit.

Not worth the wait. Have dined in and have had take-out. Take out was just terrible. Restaurant is not very clean. Hostess pleasant. Sushi bar staff and owner are ocondiscending, unwelcomming, and unfriendly. Really overpriced when portions and hospitality is considered..

You'll love this place if you appreciate new and unique blends of taste but if you prefer more classic tastes you will not like it one bit. This place is the perfect place to go if your searching for a new and VERY unique taste of sushi but steer clear if you like common sushi rolls.

This can go both ways - on one hand, I enjoyed the unique cuisine we were served here. "Fusion" is definitely appropriate to have in the name of this restaurant, as this is not even close to your traditional sushi spot. The good: sushi was excellent, flavor was phenomenal and the proximity to where we were staying (Inn at Laguna... More
