Fresh and inventive sushi with a nice ambiance and good wines. We tried the standard sushi which included 12 pieces of tuna, salmon, albacore, and yellow tail and it was great and plenty to eat since the portions are large. We also tried the ahi poki - tuna sashimi with Hawaiian sea salt and... read more

We are fairly picky about our sushi and this restaurant did not disappoint. We sat at the sushi bar and were catered to by one of the sushi chefs. It is always fun when you can interact with a sushi chef. Our sashimi special of various kinds of salmon was interesting and delicious, all explained by the chef. Next we... More

This is definitely the best sushi I've had in years. Everything we tried was excellent. I love sushi and have had it in many different parts of US, Latin America and Europe and this is probably the best second only to Morimoto in Philly

Azuki Sushi is a top flight sushi lounge and restaurant, serving the freshest fare. On a recent trip during San Diego Restaurant Week, we ordered from their special Restaurant Week menu, the happy hour menu and their dinner menu. The $40 three course restaurant week menu included their amazing miso soup with king crab and clams, which came with about... More

I don't like salmon, but the love of risotto overpowered my dislike of the fish and I ordered the salmon risotto off of the lunch menu. The dish came with a mound of risotto topped with a small amount of sautéed onions and fresh sprouts. A creamy shiitake sauce was on top of and puddled around the plate. A rectangular... More

Its not just a sushi roll - there's a mountain of fried leeks & onions piled up high. The presentation... More

I was craving good sushi and came to Azuki with two friends. The sushi was among the best I have had - fresh and very tasty. I had a mix of nigiri and rolls and everything was exceptional. I don't think you can go wrong here. One of the group ordered soba with shrimp tempura, which was also good. Sit... More

After reading all the reviews, I decided to try this place before an event at the San Diego Civic Theatre I was attending. I liked that I could make online reservations. Upon arrival, we were seated in the back of the restaurant. The setting is what you would expect to be a Japanese house. There is plush booth seating on... More
