Sushi California officially became our go-to sushi place recently after several really nice meals there. Staff is super friendly, and the space is comfortable. Love their special rolls, the edamame is prepared perfectly and the miso soup satisfies each time. Reasonable prices and there is...often a coupon if you do a little searching. Definitely try Sushi California for a great sushi experience.More

I come here far too often to admit. I have known Chef Oh and his team since he first opened the restaurant. His attention to detail, health concerns and magnificent displays for the sushi are one to take note of. I have Celiac and each...time I go in, they ensure that I am having "no crunch" in my spicy tuna and no eel sauce. When coming in with large groups, you can get a sushi boat which is absolutely stunning or a few rolls for yourself which come out with an array of sauces, and sometimes even in a display of a martini glass! The staff is super helpful, attentive and personable and the restaurant is clean. They're also super successful that they're expanding!! I suggest you go here and try it out! Say hello and get something out of the ordinary! I am always looking to expand my pallet each time I come in! Will be back again soon!More

I would have said it was good - but not very good - since there was no 'good' rating, I chose average. A better word would be 'consistent'

I love coming here because no matter if I am with friends or by myself, I am always made to feel welcome. Not to mention the food is always fresh and delicious and artfully presented. I could eat here everyday!

Go to this restaurant every couple of months and find the food consistently good. They are also BYOB and make a nominal corking fee. Don't miss this hidden gem. Great and extensive menu including big assortments that can be shared by a couple or. a...group!More

I went here with a very close friend, we sat at the sushi bar, and it was excellent as usual. Japanese food tends to be expensive, and this is no different, but the quality is fantastic.

We love the food at this Sushi place, but was very disappointed at our last visit! We tried to get a table since my wife and I were craving Sushi and we were very hungry after a show. The couple that joined us were not...hungry, but we're ready to have some drinks while we were going to enjoy a good Sushi. To our surprise they told us that we can not get a table if the other couple is going to have only drinks!!! This is not good business practice , and it left a very bad taste in me!! We had to leave the place heart broken. I do not know if we will return to such a restaurant again. We were regulars that really enjoyed and recommended the place before. No longer can I recommend it again with this type of hospitality!!!More

The sushi is average and didn't wow me in any way. Wasn't outstandingly fresh either. The price was decent. Our Waitress was awful and kept interrupting us during our order to go chat with her friends in another language which made us very upset. Totally...underwhelming. Would not come back.More

I love sushi and my best friend has been raving about this place for years! She finally took me here tonight. We ordered take out and picked it up it was ready in about 30 minutes after we called. I have never even stepped foot...inside this restaurant before today and I have lived right down the street from it for years. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and on the smaller side for a restaurant. The food was great and I loved that they gave us chop sticks and soy sauce with our order. The only complaint I have is that I ordered the veggie jumbo roll and it had no description on their menu so I assumed it would be typical veggies. When I got it home I could tell that there was a acids, carrots, cucumber and then two other vegetables (yellow and brown) which I have never seen in a veggie roll before. I didn't end up eating that roll because of the two veggies that I no idea about. I would suggest putting a description of it on your menu to list what it contains because clearly not everyone knows what's in it. All my other rolls were perfect and delicious and the customer service we received at the door was great.More

Went to dinner at Sushi California Friday night. First we were asked if we had a reservation - we did not. So they sat us at the sushi bar - an UNUSED sushi bar - with no one else seated there. So we stared at...the wall and the golf game on tv while we ate. I brought a can of beer for my husband and a container of wine and a glass for myself. They asked us 3 times if we bought our own glasses and we said yes. When the bill came they charged us two dollars apiece for "glass" - and the same 6 tables that were "reserved when we came in were still empty when we left. The food was okay - but I will never forget the way they treated us.More

We've been coming to Sushi California for the last seven years. They're consistently expanding and improving. Their sushi is always delicious and creative. A great place for lunch or dinner. Since their resent expansion, my husband is able to enjoy a larger variety of non...sushi plates! Favorite rolls include: CCSU roll, soft shell crab and naruto. The restaurant doesn't have a liquor license, which is ok, because a liquor store is practically next door and you can always "byob"! SC will provide wine glasses!More
