“Best Sushi in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Our friends go regularly and always raved about it, so gave it a try. Glad we did! Best Sushi we"ve had in San Diego! So fresh and tasty. Great happy hour also! Check out the daily specials!

“My FAVORITE place for a roll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

This is a local favorite, frequented by locals. Bob the owner is creative and the creative menu is great for sushi or non sushi roll eaters. Buku nachos (with tuna) and bulky bites are loved by all. This place actually got me to eat raw salmon and something other than a California roll. You must try the orange crush, it's a great "first timer" roll and I love the bacon and scallop roll. Yes I said bacon! They have all kinds of crazy things to try. Love the iced green tea and the tempura ice cream is awesome too!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Great food presentation & different style of sushi with the freshest fish. The VIP sushi club is the best in town with 20% off on the entire bill, including alcohol and sashimi.

“great japanese fare!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

we shared 5 rolls w/my son and his wife this past w/e. the rolls were beautifully displayed and tasted delicious. everything was fresh, served at just the right temperature, and the ambience of the place was nice - a window to the street and passersby, simplicity and color, fresh paint and very clean. our waitress, ker, was wonderful - very attentive, smiling, sweet, and knowledgeable about the menu. my son got negiri and, per him, it was fresh and good. a very delightful experience.
