Absolutely fabulous Japanese food here. Coating on tempura is light, sushi is fresh, portions are "ask for a doggy bag." Kimi's reputation is spreading way beyond the Morongo Basin area.

We passed this place as it’s next door a travellodge en route from Joshua Tree to LA, originally to stop to use the bathroom. When we walked in we realised it looked half decent, then when we sat down to eat our poke bowls we...More

Remarkable to find such fresh raw fish in the desert--hidden away next to the Travelodge motel! The first thing you notice when you come in are the three sushi chefs working at breakneck speed in front of the fish display in the far back of...More

Great food and very friendly and professional staff. Quiet atmosphere , which is nice so we could all talk to each other. Orders can be made to order at no extra charge. This is the best place to eat in Yucca Valley

Quality sushi but that's not all they have. Try a "stone bowl"... it comes with teriyaki chicken, rice, vegetables. Or, order the Bento Boat... it comes with grilled chicken, mixed tempura, salad, rice, and California roll!

I can’t believe this place isn’t more packed. Don’t be fooled by its proximity to the Travelodge! I also can’t understand why you’d eat tempura or noodles when this place (lieterally) has a world class sushi chef making some of the freshest, best sushi I’ve...More

Ate there while staying in the Travelodge. They have a huge sushi menu. Their vegetable tempura has fresh vegetables, light and tasty. The décor doesn't quite fit so was pleased to find the food was really good Japanese food and service was very good.
