Our family favorite

Delicious and unique menu choices; fresh seafood. Favorites include the Hot Lava Roll, Tataki Tuna and Hamachi carpaccio. Kids love the Agadashi Tofu (best in town). While we've tried many sushi restaurants in Honolulu, we always end up back at Cal Beach.

This trendy place offers excellent sushi...roll (maki) or nigiri. The best thing is the creativity in their rolls. Tonight we tried the Baywatch roll and the soft shell crab and spicy scallops just created a flavor explosion in my mouth. Another great creation is the Gandubie! Never a let down!

I return often for the Good value, great service, very friendly atmosphere and fresh food. If you don't know what to order (it's all good), the staff will be happy to assist in finding that satisfying meal!!

Our local Hawaiian friends took us out for lunch. We waited about 15 minutes for seating as it was slightly busy during the lunch hour. It’s a small restaurant that has seating for about 40 people with another 12 seats at the counter. All lunch time menu meals come with miso soup, green salad and rice. I ordered the tempura... More

We had a visitor to our office and were trying to brainstorm places to take him for dinner. One of my co-workers recommended California Beach Rock N' Sushi, and I'm so glad he did. It was my first time here, and I was very impressed. I had passed this place so many times while in the Ward area, but I... More

The food was very good. If you go before 6:30 p.m. (I think), they have an early bird special. It's very reasonable and they give lots of food.

Went here for a business lunch. Was very impressed with the menu selection. The beer was cold and the sushi was excellent. The pupu's were good also. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Ahi in garlic app, any roll for dinner. Done & done. Was here years ago and it's still the same: consistently good sushi, fresh, fair prices, and a bit out of the way. No frills just good food. And they take reservations! Yes, please.
