“New Kid in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Fairly new place to Merced. My daughter wanted me to take her. I'm not much of a sushi eatter, but she loved it. And there is plenty of options for everyone.

“Pocket 8's is GREAT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

FRESH! FRESH! FRESH! Which is what you want your sushi to be. It is made to order and tastes divine! And the teppan yaki (sp?) the open grill where they make your order right in front of you is a pretty neat experience. A great place to take your family or friends for an unexpected experience. The people are great and the owner himself comes to your table to check on you and your experience. =) My personal favorite... Fried Rice!! SO GOOD!!

I loved the food here and the atmosphere is nice too. You can have your meal cooked right at the grill at your table.

Jerry runs a top notch place, he is a nice guy and serves up quality food and entertainement. Went for my little brothers graduation dinner last year and it was a perfect choice.

“Over priced, bland & poorly cooked.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Tried it for first time & was not impressed at all. The food was bland & poorly cooked. The teppanyaki was boring & cook over cooked everything. I had the spice chicken with scallop. The chicken was dry even thought it was covered up with the spicy mayo. The scallop well if you like chewing flip flops go for it. It was just too chewy & rubbery.
