Never thought the combination of Mexican flavors would be a good mix with sushi, but the sushi burrito was AMAZING!!!! We also had the poke roll and it was also amazing. So happy to have yummy food available before going to the movies!!!

We have eaten here now 5 times...that is a decent measure of performance. The food is always excellent, and it is now my wife's favorite sushi place in SD. On 3 out of 5, the service was excellent. Twice, it was a little slow, but very friendly. We tend to go on off peak dining times, which can mean shift changes. The quality of the food served is very evident, and we typically eat at the bar, so we can watch the sushi chefs at work. Their Chicken Katsu is my favorite anywhere.

This place is okay... Nothing exciting or special about the sushi so "just okay". Came here because Little Tokyo was closed. The sushi was fresh and tasty. A bit pricier than Little Tokyo. Service is friendly. The waitress was always checking on us... Smiling... conversing. Now let's talk about RAMEN. This place is it if you can't get to Kearny Mesa. You get a large, hot, tasty bowl of Ramen goodness. There about 4 types to choose from. They should turn this place into a Ramen place and leave the sushi to Little Tokyo.

The best sushi burrito you'll ever have! This sushi restaurant is a bit of a Mexican Fusion. Lots of cilantro and lime is used you create these extraordinary flavors. The sushi burrito is in their appetizer menu and is served with a vegetable non spicy salsa. McKenzie, Tuna Lime, Showtime, Rudy rolls are my favorites!

I hope this helps!
