It is hard to find a great sushi restaurant. The fish is fresh, the creativity is fantastic and the customer service is stellar!

I went after hearing from a friend. Sat at the bar and was greeted by Goody himself who was working behind the sushi bar. Very polite and helpful! I will have to say the pizza roll is a nice twist on sushi!

I ordered coconut cilantro cicken, no cilantro, no coconut and the worst cut of dark chicken meat. The excuse I was given is that the sauce is a blend. The place itself is nice and modern, but the food definitely a miss.

Found this restaurant on trip advisor in April and had to go back for another meal on a return trip to San Diego. Found food to still be consistently tasty, more than reasonable portions and price very affordable. Wait staff were friendly, fast and efficient. Definitely go back when in San Diego again.

I gave this an average rating because the waitress was reallly nice and friendly. The food was very good but on the salty side for me. The portions were small compared to other places that I have been to that was the same price. The atmosphere was nice and modern. If you have never been to this place. It is... More

My friend and I enjoyed a casual Japanese dinner here before driving south into Mexico. We got here during an extensive Happy Hour and the prices for the entrees as well as some of the sushi were very good. The place has a fun atmosphere, and the staff is friendly.

Nice modern casual atmosphere. Server was friendly and suggested some great options for us. Portion sizes are huge! (We Canadians are used to smaller bites!) We were stuffed after 3 rolls and an appetizer but our fantastic server hit us with a complimentary fried PB&J dessert which was so delicious but my tummy almost exploded. We'll definitely go back there... More

During a recent trip to visit my daughter we were searching for a place to get sushi take out along with some other similar food. Found this little gem on trip advisor. Although it was tricky to find it was well worth the time. We ordered tuna and hamachi sashimi. Both were so fresh and tasty. Also had the soft... More
