Nice place for Sushi and Japanese food

My friend and I enjoyed a casual Japanese dinner here before driving south into Mexico. We got here during an extensive Happy Hour and the prices for the entrees as well as some of the sushi were very good. The place has a fun atmosphere, and the staff is friendly.

Nice modern casual atmosphere. Server was friendly and suggested some great options for us. Portion sizes are huge! (We Canadians are used to smaller bites!) We were stuffed after 3 rolls and an appetizer but our fantastic server hit us with a complimentary fried PB&J dessert which was so delicious but my tummy almost exploded. We'll definitely go back there... More

During a recent trip to visit my daughter we were searching for a place to get sushi take out along with some other similar food. Found this little gem on trip advisor. Although it was tricky to find it was well worth the time. We ordered tuna and hamachi sashimi. Both were so fresh and tasty. Also had the soft... More

Didn't actually go to this restaurant. We had them cater for our meeting in a hotel. Breakfast and lunch. Over 4 days, the food always arrived promptly, was of good quality and reasonable priced. Ours was a small group of only 8 people, yet they services us well and did not take a cent until it was over.

Came here with my son based on TripAdvisor reviews. Yes, it is very good! We got there at opening 5 pm. The gal who served us gave us a lot of good pointers and recommendations. I admit we aren't all that knowledgeable about Sushi but I do know when we have an outstanding, enjoyable experience. We both liked what we... More

What a surprise. The front desk at the Best Western sent me here for a quick dinner while I was traveling on business. It is a small place in a strip center unassumingly by I-5. The greeting was warm, the beer was cold, and the sushi was to die for! The chef "Goody" was so personable and obviously very concerned... More

Goody's This Gem of a spot is where you can find me after a hard day at work. (funny about posting to the internet and the world about where I hide out, but nontheless, I continue). Really Feel like Family here. Come in, sit down and let the attentive/yet unobtusitive staff take care of you. Like the poster before me.... More

The food and the casual atmosphere is fantastic. The owners and servers are really friendly and outgoing. The fusion rolls are very tasty. I recommend the garlic edamame, dragon roll, tempura, cajun chicken...just try everything on the menu! Great prices, great food, great people!!!

One wouldn't normally venture to an unassuming strip mall in an auto mall district for great sushi, but this is among the top places in the San Diego area when you're on a roll kick. The National City eatery is clean, accessible, staff is affable and the prices are fairly reasonable. I was skeptical of trying this place out at... More
