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

Went in for some sushi after a kayak tour. This place is just a few doors from where I took a kayak tour. They had a sign outside for lunch specials. I tried one and let me tell you, it was very good! they brought out a very fresh Shrimp crunch roll, then the salmon teriyaki with salad and rice.... More

Usually tourist locations do not really have worthy food to eat. However, I will say this place has decent bento box. Sashimi is too expensive though, so we did not try it. For hanging out, it has a great outside dining. The service was pretty good, the waitress continuously returned to check up on us.

Had the their combo sushi platter, with Thai hot special. It wasn't really hot, but it had a great flavor. You could tell the fish was very fresh. Also had the unagi roll, man it was like butter. Fantastic place. Make sure you sit outside. Great views.

We were able to grab a table outdoor along the sidewalk. Our server was friendly and efficient. We ordered two lunch boxes (less than $15 each). Each box comes with miso soup, salad, rice and the entrée. The food quality has exceeded my expectation. Highly recommended to those looking for sushi in this area.

Before hitting the beautiful La Jolla beach yesterday, we stopped at Sushi Mori which is just a short walk from the ocean. We sat outside where we were treated to friendly and efficient service as well as very good sushi. The lunch specials, especially the Bento boxes are priced well.
