“dirtier than usual”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The sushi was very good and not too big as the individual pieces go on the roll but the overall restaurant is dirty. From the menus to the tables and the front of the restaurant is not kept. Too bad

“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We decided to try this place one evening, what a mistake. We waited about 15 min. before we got seated. After a while, the waitress came by, she said they were very busy and would take our order shortly. Finally, she took our order and we got our drinks. The hostess continued to seat new customers, but I noticed no one was waiting on them. By now, about 30 minutes had passed, and we still had not received our food. Then, I noticed, the hostess was talking to some of the customers who has not been waited on, and they were leaving. Finally, the couple next to us, who had their food was being asked to pay the bill because the staff had walked out and no one was being served any longer.Also, they couldn't use a credit card so they were trying to find enough cash. No one said anything to us, we just happen to overhear what they said to them. So we drank our drinks and left. We walked down the street and went to Pleasure Pizza and had a great dinner. Pink Godzilla is off our list of places to go.

“Lunch Sushi chef gave up”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have been to the Pink several times with mixed results but this one was the worst. The Sashimi lunch was a disaster of mangled portions and mismatched chunks of fish. The side salad had chunks of lettuce about half the size of the plate do it was messy and awkward to eat and was not properly dressed. Visually, the presentation was quite ugly and unappetizing. I need to find a new place in Santa Cruz. Rarely do I write a negative review but this encounter deserved it.

“So many other good Sushi Restaurants in Santa Cruz - Don't waste your time & $”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2010

I haden't been to the Pink Godzilla in a few years and boy do I regret going back. First of all the horrible miso soup was served to me at a scalding temperature, my mouth has been burned for 2 days. The lunch special came with a sad salad, a few bites of poor quality sashimi and a generic California roll. There are so many other good sushi places to eat in Santa Cruz - do not waste your time here.
