“best sushi”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Went with friends to Happy hour [5-7pm] on a Friday night. awesome happy hour menu for food and drinks. This place has won best sushi in sand diego several times and it is well deserved. Be sure and try the pizza roll [which has nothing to do with pizza] and also the Hawaii roll!! The pot stickers with duck are awesome as is the calamari. We had everything on the food menu and many drinks and our bill was $80 a couple.

If you love Sushi - you gotta go to Japengo
