“Good food and an nice ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It is a nice casual place with good food. We had rolls and a bento box for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 kids). We got courtesy/complementary miso soups that the kids loved.

“Decent sushi at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We eat at Sushi Totoro on a regular basis. We usually order bento boxes and then split 1-2 specialty rolls. The portions are reasonable-sized and priced reasonably as well, and there are many "interesting" rolls—we like the double hamachi roll and the TNT (deep fried spicy tuna roll).

One drawback is that the restaurant is small (seats about 40 people), so there can be a wait when they're busy. Also, the restaurant can be somewhat loud.

Overall, it's a decent neighborhood sushi bar - nothing spectacular, but a good place to go if you want to leave downtown Santa Cruz.
