Great Find Tucked Away in a Shopping Center

This is a little gem that is always crowded for dinner, so get there early - not sure if they take reservations, but the place is small and often has a wait line. The sushi is very fresh and they offer dozens of types, so there is no worry that you won't find what you are craving. They also offer... read more

We ate here for the first time after reading all of the great reviews. Indeed the food was very good. Fresh and tasty. The music they were playing however was awful! I know it seems unimportant but they were playing this offensive rap music that was so terrible. Halfway through our meal my husband and I had such a headache... More

I have eaten at I Love Sushi many times for lunch and supper and have never been disappointed. With a large family (6 or 7), we have had to wait for a table, but was always worth it. The rolls are creative and different than the typical ones seen at most sushi places. I have never had a bad meal... More

I've eaten here many times. Everything is good. But my favorite is the sashimi salad. For about $12 and it's big enough to share.

I Love Sushi consistently has the freshest and most flavorful fish in Ventura. Their seared albacore is unmatched. While I prefer their sushi and sashimi, their creative rolls are delicious as well. I highly recommend this sushi restaurant.

Not bad, but not awesome, decent service. We had the seared tuna salad and the tuna was slightly watery and somewhat flavorless. The sauce that the fried tofu appetizer came in lacked flavor. The sushi rolls themselves were alright and the tuna for the inside out roll was fresh. Will keep looking around for the perfect sushi restaurant in this... More

Only place to eat sushi in Ventura! Best seaweed salad....ever! Yummy and affordable. Don't let the strip mall location fool you! Their lobster is actually langastino, but when you get a $6.95 lobster roll you gotta expect that
