Great Sushi

We were traveling and saw this little sushi place across the street. We are glad we went in because the Sushi was great. Basically the twist is that many of their offerings have their own sauce provided. So this isn't a dip it in soy sauce type place. It was really great. I wish we had... read more

A new approach to sushi. The chef here has developed her own menu with new approaches to many dishes available at most California sushi places. My wife wasn't big on the preparation but I found it to be a refreshing change.

This is my absolute favorite sushi restaurant. The flavors and the presentation that the team puts together are amazing. It's small....get there early. Every person that visits me.....I bring them here :)

Just ate here this evening, and WOW! it's sushi created in fresh, innovative ways, infused with incredible flavor. there are many, many choices on this menu, making it hard to choose, but we ordered a volcano sizzle to start - fresh tuna seared quickly and served rare on a hot plate swimming in delicious juices. Next came the very popular... More

Don't walk....run to 242 Cafe Fusion Sushi! We ate here on a weekend trip to Laguna Beach. This is absolutely one of the best sushi places we have ever eaten at with amazing, creative and flavorful dishes! It was a long wait because the place is so tiny, but the chefs take their time in creating each roll. Every roll... More

Chef Miki has created an asian food experience that is absolutely stunning. She successfully combines unexpected flavors and textures with traditional sushi techniques. Especially the use of fresh aromatic greens from her own garden adds a great kick to well executed innovative dishes. I was simply thrilled by the dishes. Start your experience by looking at the daily specials presented... More

Wow! What an awesome experience! Just left this place and had to write this review. Had the sweet shrimp miso soup, and a few different rolls. All were "to die for." If you get the chance, do not miss this gem in Laguna Beach! This is one of those places that epitomizes the joy of traveling and experiencing new and... More

Last night I had the best sushi I've ever tasted! The freshness, flavors & creativity of the food is outstanding. We took the waitress's suggestions & were so happy we did. Their own take on Creme Brûlée is also delicious! Don't miss this place, even if you have to wait a while.You will be rewarded!

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......
