Tried this while visiting relatives in San Diego. My brother is a regular. It is hands down the freshest, lightest sushi I’ve ever eaten. Also tried the Japanese rice beer. Mild and delicious. Nice little gem of a place.

This is our favorite local sushi spot. love the happy hour menu from 5-630p. Service is great. Located right off the I-15 freeway at Mira Mesa - in the lot with Trader Joe's. Sushi, peppers and noodles are our favorites!
