Amazing sushi!

This place looks shabby, but don't be fooled! The food and service is fantastic! Large portions of fresh sushi with wonderful flavuors.

It didn't feel Japanese at all. Very friendly, yes. But the odd smell of mold and something chemical should have stopped us from ordering. They had just opened, so perhaps there was no time for cooking odors to permeate. We're not a big fan of rolls, but they were the best things. The salmon eggs had an odd taste -... More

We got kinda low expectations for this restaurant when we saw it and the low prices, but it is actually one of the best sushi places we have been. They had 50% off some sushi rolls and these sushi bites were huge and so good. The service was also very helpful!

We ended up here when the wait at our usual sushi place had an hour and a half wait. We got a table right away which was a plus. The wait staff was also very friendly, and you certainly can't beat the prices. However, sometimes you get what you pay for. My husband and I found the food to be... More

At Pacific Beach, there is no lack of sushi bars. We thought we would try Mika Sushi on Grand Avenue in Pacific Beach. It is a small place so look for the sign on the sidewalk across from MacDonalds. If you blink, you may miss it. The restaurant was not crowded so we got served immediately. We ordered two of... More

We are not from California so I was very excited to get sushi. We randomly found Mika and were instantly charmed by the staff. There was a good variety of rolls on special and we order a few different types. The fish was so soft, it would melt in your mouth! It was sooo good! The nigiri we ordered was... More

We came here with some friends expecting good sushi, and weren't disappointed. We started with the ahi poke, which was pretty good. The tuna was a good quality and it was enough to share. We also got the Extreme Roll, a protein roll, spicy tuna roll, and two tempura shrimp rolls. All were very good and fresh. The service was... More

Great food at Mika -- was here years ago and enjoyed it so much, had to come back on my last visit. Remembered how good the food was, so wanted to experience it again. Fresh shashimi/sushi is available here. You can count on it every time.
