I was visiting a friend in San Diego and he asked if I liked Sushi (trick question) and suggested we visit a local favourite of his - the Poway Sushi Lounge (PSL). I had just come down from Seattle, the home of some of the best seafood and sushi in the US and got the surprise of my life when... More

PSL does a great job! High quality and extremely fresh fish. The lemon hamachi is the best I have ever had. Rolls, Poke and seaweed are large servings and priced fairly--offering great value. Excellent service from both the wait-staff and sushi chefs. Poway seems like a stretch but PSL is worth a try.

If in San Diego I suggest you try it. A little out of the touristic area has a great reputation between locals and we were never disappointed. We brought over friends visiting from around the world and their reaction is always the same: "Let's come back tomorrow!"

We've been coming to Poway Sushi Lounge for about a year. Every experience has been outstanding. The sushi is some of the best I've ever had any where....even Japan!!

We like the unusual sushi rolls they offer. Many do not need wasabi and soy sauce. One roll serves a brown mustard sauce on the side...very tasty!

This was our first visit here, the restaurant was recommended by a friend. Right off the bat, the food is not as fresh as other seafood places we have been to, the California roll had a somewhat fishy smell. Fresh seafood does not smell. My husband and I both had the bento box, which we love and it was fine.... More

Great sushi and excellent service. Danny is awesome. We eat here somewhat regularly and it's always great. Baja Hand Roll in soy paper is my favorite and a recommendation by Danny, given what we usually order. We now always get Tsunami, Haji, Baja Hand Roll, Mini Ahi Tacos, Pepper Seared Ahi and El Chappo. I also love the Lazy Chef,... More

We really love this place. It's our favorite place to go in Poway and maybe even all of San Diego. We are regulars and we haven't had a bad meal there. In fact, they keeping surprising us with superior service and food. We love the Chili Citrus Yellowtail, salmon sashimi and fresh scallops. The rolls are great, but we like... More

The sushi here was good I think based on the other reviews I was expecting amazing sushi but I wasn't amazing. I tried two different rolls and I liked one more than the other. The chronic roll was very good.

This is our fourth or fifth trip to the PSL. My only complaint is it is so good it's popularity continues to increase and now I have to wait on the weekends. If it's 10 minutes of 45 it is worth every minute of waiting.
