“Always tasty and pleasant”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

The wait is a little long, but I've never had bad service on this side of Hill Street. The fish and sushi are fresh and the waiter/sushi chef is always smiling, helpful, and makes great rolls that are artfully displayed!

“Fresh is the key word when it comes to sushi”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

And this place is all about it. Best Sushi in town for sure. Everything is a la carte, no all you can eat here. Their original rolls are all yummy. They also have the traditional favorites. Try the Hogsbreath roll...ah-mazing!

“Best sushi ever!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We were in Oceanside on vacation, and were told by a formal local to go to the fish joint. We were so happy we did. The menu was so unique and I was very pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian/vegan options also. We got the Kronic roll, gorilla ball roll, teriyaki dinner with tofu/vegs/rice. All were excellent! The decor was paintings from local artists. Very hip/asain style mixed with local beach vibe. Reminded me of Maui when I lived there. Do yourself a favor and check it out! Don't go to gross chains like Rubys...this place is unique!

“Not your same old sushi”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Yes, you can you traditional rolls. If you do that, you will be missing the boat completely. All of their house rolls are are themed after Gilligan's Island each one is unique and delicious. Service is pretty casual but, efficient. The place is small and friendly. Try the Spicy Squid appetizer.
