We sat on the patio during the sunset. I wish the place was located on the beach. But service was excellent and so was the food, and very reasonably priced for Malibu. I've only spent less than half a day in Malibu and this place is what I think of when I remember this trip! Try their cucumber salad with... More

Tasteless sushi, and we left feeling hungry. The decor was a bit like a cafeteria, not very comfortable. Very disappointed.

Although Nobu will think otherwise, Zooma Sushi has a more personal touch. Nobu has great sushi but leave your wallet at the door. Here, it is as good without the cost. Sushi master Toshi and staff will make it great. The special rolls, like spicy tuna, will have you wanting more Japanese Beer!

Best I've ever had anywhere in US; very fast, fresh and delicious. EXCELLENT service and reasonable price for overall experience. Zooma would be the first place I ate if I returned to Malibu.

Found this gem by accident while cruising down the PCH to LA. It's small round sign is hard to see from the road but it's in a cool multi-level little mall in a wooded area on the south side of the road. It's quite scenic but does not have an ocean view. The menu isn't terribly extensive but the quality... More

Small quaint restaurant tucked away in the trees. This is an easily missed sushi restaurant. I would never have found it had it not been for my partner. I'm sure this is the best sushi I've ever put into my mouth. I only wish I lived closer so I could visit more often. Check it out. You will not be... More

I have no idea what the reviewer on top is talking about, I've been coming to zooma sushi for years and its definately not "typical" sushi. No they don't add "huge" amounts of rice to the sushi, if you're ordering sushi (not sashimi, which comes with no rice) of course it comes with rice! The same goes with nobu, they... More

I don't get it. When I compare this place to Nobu - Malbu, it's like apples to oranges. Zooma, is your typical "suburban sushi" that is served throughout the USA. A little fish, surrounded by a "huge" amount of sticky rice. Typical. It cost about 20% less than Nobu, but falls short by about 75%. Not a good deal in... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
