We ate lunch here and shared a Bento Box and Gyoza and it was very tasty and lots of food. Kirin or Sapporo beer is a must. Cheers!

It's unusual to find really good sushi at a reasonable price, especially in a vacation destination like Monterey. However, the sushi is definitely fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced here. Definitely worth a try!

A little over priced for sushi. If your spending some bucks then it should be great quality. I wasn't very satisfied with my plate but at least was filling. Service was ok, it felt rushed like the server wanted us to leave.

The location was great. The food really sucked. I had better sushi in the inland restaurants. Very disappointed.

We ate here on two separate occasions while visiting the Monterey area. Both nights the place was very quiet, and we had our choice of seats. We sat by the large window expanse and had a terrific view of Monterey pier. Food was very good both nights, but the service was not consistent. On our first visit, our server was... More

There seem to be two restaurants, sushi on one side, and steak house on the other. This review is for sushi only. Located at the Fisherman's Wharf, the review is awesome. It's a round dining room, and if you can get a window seat, the view of the marina cannot be beat. The menu is fairly simple, with just a... More

Always make a point of eating here when we are in the Monterey area. You get the experience of cooking at your table, with the theatrics you more expensive Japanese restaurants for much more reasonable prices. You can get a full dinner for as low as $14.95. The food is very good, presented well, atmosphere indescribable. While eating you are... More
