Love the staff, the service, and the atmosphere of this restaurant! The selection is great! But the quality of the fish seems to have dropped a tad over the years.

Pleasantly surprised by the selection of sushi in Carmel. To be fair, we ordered in (they have no delivery, we had to pick up) so the food may have lost something in lack of presentation. But it was extremely tasty. Definitely recommended if you have an itch for sushi that needs to be scratched while in Carmel.

A local in Carmel recommended this sushi spot. I'm glad he did. The service wasn't great, but the sushi was. We came in on a Thursday evening. It was a bit crowded, but we were seated right away. We really liked the crunch roll!

As far as we could tell, this is the ONLY sushi restaurant in Carmel. Despite having a monopoly, they appear to adhere to high standards. They have a huge selection of rolls of all sorts. In addition to sampling a wide variety, I ordered their uni, which is my standard measure of a sushi caliber, It was delicious. Thumbs up... More

I had a bowl of udon and an order of sushi. Both were fine, it was difficult to really tell because of the terrible service in the place. From the time I walked and stood waiting to be seated, only to be ignored for over 5 minutes, I could hear other guests yelling to the staff asking to pay their... More

On entry I was greeted with a smile and seated quickly, menu handed out and entree out in a flash. The soft crab cooked to perfection. Second course took a while to come out I don't think they prep it's all cooked fresh,... More

We enjoyed a simple dinner here with our teens after exploring Point Lobos and Carmel. Its a few blocks away from Carmel's main shopping area, a pleasant walk. We had basic sushi rolls - Califormia roll, tuna roll, and tried the Tom and Jerry. Presentation was lovely and everything tastes fresh. Prices were a good value, which was important to... More

It is only a small door restaurant on Dolores St, but what a huge great surprise!!! Sushi tastes fresh as it should and absolutely delicious, much more than we were expecting due to the premisses... We had food in the house and also to go, and both were superb!

Thank franfeliz
