Not so Happy Sushi....

After a long day of travel from the east coast we were craving sushi only to learn maybe Palm Springs isn't a sushi town. Happy Sushi had the best reviews of the places we found so we figured we'd give it a shot. Maybe we should have paid more attention to the fact that only one other couple was... read more

The food here is fresh and tasty. The service can be a little slow during the busy lunch time but the wait is worth it. Of special note is a freshly made appetizer item where the rice is made into a type of cracker and deep fried and then topped with seasoned fresh tuna; this is well worth ordering. The... More

This place came highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint food wise. With both indoor and outdoor seating it is perfect for both sun lovers and those who don't like the heat. The food was well prepared and fresh -- no strong smells here. Most enjoyable was the spicy fresh tuna on crispy fried rice (like a cracker);... More

I had a great experience with this restaurant. I found the portions to be the smae as other sushi restaurants I have been in. We ordered the "Three Amigos" and it is fabulous. I have had sushi in Japan and felt this was just as good. Great service. No complaints.

The service was not fast, but the food was very good for the prices charged. Much better choice than other sushi places within three blocks. Happy hour specials are moderately good.

My wife loves sushi, but I don’t. Going to a sushi place is often a problem because I can’t find anything I want to eat. That wasn’t an issue here. I ordered the spicy teriyaki wings (appetizer), and they were awesome. They were very spicy with excellent flavor. Ironically, I liked my dinner more than my wife liked hers. She... More

The food is fresh and delicious. It's also very close to downtown so you can have a nice stroll after you have dinner.

I really like Japanese food, tempura being my favorite. My daughters really like sashimi and sushi, and they were happy with what they ordered. One of my daughters ordered the Rainbow Roll and the other daughter, being less adventurous, ordered the California roll. My tempura was very good; light, not greasy, and there was a good variety of veggies. I... More

So, I scrolled through all the ratings on here before making my Desert Sushi selection and because of "expensive" comments chose Happy Sushi. Super Happy I did. The appetizers, Sushi, Sashimi, Service, Ginger, Saki were all EXCELLENT. Perhaps it was our friendly, positive entrance near closing time that brought us the chefs best efforts, but he really put together a... More

Good quality fish but VERY small portions. their 8 pc is rolled so thin it is a bit of a rip off. The Sushi chef was VERY nice and I was alone at the counter so it was nice he took time to speak to me.
