Best suchi and sachimi!

Great food and awesome selections of sake specially the Daiginjo. Presentation and freshness is at the very top. Price is on the mid to high but well worth. Very busy with many patrons even for a Wednesday night.

I had to have sushi in San Diego, and I am so glad I ended up here. This was the best sushi I have ever had, and my friend loved it as well. I had a nigiri dish that included tuna, yellowfin, salmon, squid, etc. and my friend had a specialty roll. It's a little pricey, but sushi normally is... More

I did not see this coming. The restaurant was kind of off the beaten path and not in an area with a lot of restaurants. We had made reservations and when we walked up I was sure that we had made a mistake. The dining area is small with a row of tables on one side and the sushi bar... More

If you are looking for HIGH QUALITY sushi, then I really recommend this must go to lounge. If visiting from out of town, then it's not far from Downtown hotels. Just a short taxi cab away located on 5th Ave in Bankers Hill area. Nao, sushi chef, is very articulate from picking out the finest fish to presenting it on... More

We are japaneese food lovers and I can say that was one awesome dinner! Strongly recommend the lobster roll and the green tea cream brulee. A bit pricy but worth to try. Great service. A bit outside the Gaslamp district, you have to go there on purpose as I'd say it is more of a residential neighbourhood.

Cho toro tuna belly from Spain was awesome however the black truffle was a waste of money and an attempt at tasting it. The grilled yellow tail collar was really good. Sorry no pics cuz my battery was dead.

Came here our first night in San Diego without a reservation and was seated within 5 mins. Very friendly staff. Our waitress had no problem making selections for us and we enjoyed every bite, every drink! Be sure to get the R U Kidding Me. It was amazing!

We were recommended Azuki by fellow travellers and with Sushi being one of our favourites decided to give it a go. We ordered three different Special Rolls and they were good. The two better ones were Sunshine and r u Kidding. The presentation was more traditional so we weren't blown away by something radical. But this is not to say... More
