We used to go to Cho Cho Sans all the time in 2011 and before. then suddenly they changed ownership. Prices went sky high and the service was poor. It is such a shame because we really enjoyed going here for sushi at one time.

Cho Cho San offers a variety of dining experiences. One can order sushi & or sashimi from the sushi bar prepared fresh or from a booth. They have the best sushi in town the prices are a bit high. They also offer Teppan style dining where a chef comes to a table with a stove heated to 550 degrees Fahrenheit... More

We went to Cho Cho San recently for appetizers and drinks. They had a good selection of sushi and other items on their Happy Hour Menu. We tried the soft shell crab roll and tempura rolls. We liked what we ordered and the prices were good. Will try them again.

The garlic edemame is the best! Its a must have. We have dined here twice now having sushi. The food is good and fresh. The specialty rolls on the menu are overwhelming and should really be cut down to 10 or 12. But the sevice is good and nice. I would dine here again.

This review is only for the sushi bar. If you like sushi rolls dressed with gimmicky sauces, then maybe Cho Cho San is OK. If you like to order nigiri sushi that is not drenched with "special" sauce and the fish has to be 100% fresh, then this place misses the mark completely. Is pre-sliced fish in the sushi case...

Cho Cho San has it all. Fun place to go and get a show at your table. If you are not into that, than enjoy the Sushi bar. Food is excellent

This is a fun restaurant where you can sit and watch your food being prepared by a chef that juggles the ingredients. Great food and variety on the menu. It can be loud so not really a romantic setting, more fun for the family.

Not the finest sushi restaurant in California but a very competent place to eat & have fun enjoying many sushi & rolls options. I got there around 2:15 pm and ordered the $13.50 Sushi / Bento box special - pieces of sushi, sashimi, tempura, soup & salad. At 2:30 pm, Happy Hour begins and most of the popular rolls drop...

We went to this restaurant during a family reunion and were very disappointed. Several of the fish dishes tasted like old fish. Same with the sushi. The beef was OK. The fried rice was very bland and tasteless as were the vegetables. Shrimp came with all of the dishes and it was like tasteless rubber. They didn't put out the... More
