Enjoyed an early dinner with the family. They were still on lunch practices and the portions were more than filling tried it all from bento boxes, fried rice and sushi. All of it was amazing. The staff is super friendly and fast. Sat outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Sushi was really good and they have a generous serving of sashimi as well. Really fresh food. Go during happy hour, 4-8 PM, Mon-Friday to get 20% off!

We visited Sushi Mori as a family for an early dinner and everyone had a great meal comprising of a variety of tempura, noodles, rice and sushi. The food was fresh and the service really good. If you have room at the end I would also recommend the macaron ice creams 😊👍

I'm hardly an expert, but I found the sushi here delicious and interesting. I particularly liked the Dragon Roll. Fun and tasty.

We walked over from our cousins' place and stopped for the happy hour service. I ordered an Asahi draft, which I hadn't had in a while. We really loved the creaminess of the california roll and the crispness of the nori that wrapped it. We ordered a few kinds of nigiri sushi, the maguro and hamachi. We also ordered tai... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. We did not eat sushi but everyone in my party enjoyed their meal. This was our favorite meal while we were in LaJolla and will go back the next time we are in town. It is very convenient if you are staying in LaJolla Shores and the prices are very reasonable compared to others in the... More

Nice little spot in La Jolla, with seating outside, which we loved. The prices are outrageous but the lunch specials are actually a good deal. The soup was good, the tempura was good, but the tuna roll was a miss, in our opinion. However, the presence of the crunchy shrimp roll on the lunch menu saved the day as it... More

Upon arriving in LJS hungry from a long flight from the East Coast, our first mission was to find a good dinner. And find it we did! We chose Sushi Mori partially on the fact that it was later in the evening and they had later hours than most of the surrounding restaurants (which were all only yards from our... More
