There were 5 of us hungry business travelers that night and we all got the sushi. Not one of us could finish the amount of food we were brought. Excellent sushi, both the cooked and the raw; service was good but it took almost an hour for our food (granted we had a large order!) and while they don't take... More

If you are looking for delicious and creative sushi, this is the place to come. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat and short waits, this is not. I personally think it's worth the wait and has the atmosphere to make up for it if you are hanging out with buddies or your significant other, but it... More

The rolls were poorly done. The fish wasn't fresh. We went as two adults and three kids. The kids' food came out an hour before the rolls did. It took ten minutes and two askings before the kids got utensils for their food. One of the grown ups was diabetic and her blood sugar was dropping while we waited. All... More

We have been here several times and never disappointed. This is our "go to" place for sushi. We went in for just a little afternoon treat and ordered the daily special rolls. The Diablo was the best we have probably ever had. We like to sit at the sushi bar and watch as they work there magic. Everything is, cut,... More

I got ill after eating the sushi here. I was running my first 5K, and I did run it, but not before puking thanks to CA Rolling.

I visited this place years ago before they remodeled and thought it was so-so. It actually smelled a bit like a sewer so I never went back. After I've heard so many people say that they remodeled and it was good so I had to give it another try. All in all I would say it wasn't that bad, but... More

Well first off.. I had heard so much about this restaurant.. Good reviews.. So we decided to try it ourselves. I really wanted to like this place.. But alas.. That was not to come to fruition. We ordered spicy tuna, negahamachi ( yellowtail with scallions) avocado rolls, California rolls and spicy salmon.. The unfortunate part was that NONE of the... More

As a frequent lunch diner at this establishment for many years, I am certainly stepping back from ever giving Cali Rollin at Village Gate any of my business. My visits are with business clients therefore opening them up to the restaurant as well. I do know that my clients would often go back with their families. I am appalled on... More

I have been going to California Rollin since they opened about fifteen or so years ago, and have never been disappointed. The restaurant itself is campy and fun and visually appealing, and the sushi is excellent.....large, generous oieces of fish, rolled with perfectly cooked rice. No skimping here, unlike so many other places. They have great take out sushi assortments... More

We come here quite often and always leave happy! The sushi is fun and there are tons of nigiri/rolls to choose from. There are always sushi/drinks specials and they frequently have groupons as well (just make sure to check which location they're for). Grab a seat at the bar and watch it all being made!
