DELICIOUS JAPANESE FOOD

Sapporo is my favorite San Diego Japanese Restaurant. The owner is always friendly. The food is always good and modestly priced. It's a charming place just steps to the beach. Most recently i had my favorite, chicken teriyaki and mixed tempura. I like the fact that there are both sushi and non... read more

The sushi was fabulous, seriously. And I didn't think t was overly expensive. Do you really want cheap sushi?? Think about it. Regardless, it was very reasonably priced, very fresh, and awesomely tasty. We had salmon and tuna and a bunch of rolls. The OB roll and the carribean roll were standouts, but everything was good. On top of that... More

There are many great things about this place its close to the beach great beer on tap and the game is always playing in the background. They know spicy food so trust them when they say something is hot and even if it's not on the menu if you can think the chefs can make it awesome with a capital... More

This place should definitely be on your list of places to go when visiting San Diego. After all, fresh fish is something the region is best known for. Japanese and Asian influence is absolutely king in California, so eat it up! They have a really cool sampler-style option for those of you who aren't necessarily accustomed to sushi (yet ;))...

Little spot, pretty cheap. Good portions, awesome quail egg ( thats my quality barometer) relaxed& not as strangely elitist as the rest of OB tends to be. You don't get the vibe that they just wish you would leave cuz ur from out of town.

I got the fully cooked fish and rice dish while my wife enjoyed some raw salmon sushi(which is not my thing). I loved mine and she loved hers. Worth trying

The sushi looks good, but I prefer my seafood cooked. Try the fish or chicken teriyaki combo which is served with a delicious fresh salad with tangy sesame dressing, plenty of rice, California roll and a bowl of hot miso soup with tofu. The owner is Japanese and she is always present, assuring high quality in every meal. There's a... More
