It used to be another sushi place and then my husband and I dropped in to California Sushi after visiting the Farmer's Market. This place is wonderful - good fresh sushi and on a recent trip (we've been there 3 time since) found out the have Supporo beer on tap! It tastes so much better! The rolls are very large... More

I first visited California Sushi for a business lunch, and have been back many times. The food is great - always fresh - and the service is fantastic. Rolls are named after local cities and neighborhoods and use spices and herbs typically used in Mexican dishes. The sushi/Mexican fusion makes it unique and I place I will continue to frequent!

I ordered a mix sashimi, very good and nice mix, the octopus was tender and not chewy for a change, the tuna unfortunately was too watery you could taste that it was frozen, but overall a good sashimi. They have 4 dishes with oyster but none was available at the time of my visit on Sunday, so I opted for... More

I love Sushi. I decided to take my 8 year old son for the first time; he picked this place because it was close to our house. The chef was handling the raw fish with his bare hands, and wiped his hands on his pants after he handed us our dish. I let it go until he bent over to... More

I love this place! Every time I come back home for a visit, my first stop is California Sushi. It is on 3rd avenue in Chula Vista and close to many shops and a wonderful park to walk off the food. There is a great selection of food, saki and wine to keep you entertained.

We lived near this restaurant across from the park on Third Avenue for a year before we tried it because it didn't appear to be "authentically Japanese" (e.g., latino sushi chefs and staff), but we've been back over a dozen times and it has become one of our favorite restaurants in Chula Vista. As another reviewer noted, the sushi is... More
