“Excellent Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We absolutely loved Mobo. The sushi was incredible and very fresh! Best dinner of our two week vacation with visits to many restaurants. I also thought it was a great value. After reading some of the reviews I was worried it might be pricey, however this was not the case - I thought it was a great value and delicious.

“Neat little sake bomb domino show.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Outside patio was nice and quiet. Sushi was pretty good. Service was great. Sake bomb show was really cool but they ran out just as we stepped up to get ours. Be aggressive if you really want one. The locals know how to fight their way to the front.

“My Favorite Sushi Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Everyone "in the know" in Santa Cruz loves this place. You'd have to know where it is to find it, as it's overshadowed by the Trader Joe's parking lot, but the food is AWESOME! They have a standard fare Japanese menu which is all excellent and priced right, but they also have their "specials" that are fun, inventive and delicous...also with prices that are reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. Flavorful, rich miso, tempura that is perfectly cooked....delicate and crisp....huge bento boxes with a good variety to choose from, very fresh fish and beautiful presentation. The service is straight forward, and relatively quick, but not pushy. I'm not sure what the recent comment was about high prices, as I have not experience that. I always leave very satisfied...both my tummy and my pocketbook.

“Extremely Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This place has decent food, but talk about expensive sushi! You can go down the street and get sushi for half the price. Since when does it cost $21.00 for salmon teriyaki? I went with a friend for dinner here about a year ago and remembered that we walked out of this place before we ordered because of the high prices.

The food was decent, but not worth the price. I find it hard to believe that university students eat at this place on the weekends, It makes me wonder how they can afford this place! Will not eat here again.
