“Best kept Sushi secret!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is easily the best quality sushi in Ventura county! Generous portions and stuff you won't find in other sushi restaurants including yellowtail collar (decadent), smoked fish (in store by owner), and ankimo (liver for those uninitiated). Definitely a must visit!

“My favorite Ventura sushi restaurant”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I've eaten here numerous times. The tempura is always light and crisp; the California rolls and spicy tuna rolls are always fresh and tasty. The edamame and miso soup are reasonably priced and nicely prepared. Pleasant service makes this small place a local hangout.

“Small but yummy”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Koba Sushi is a teensy place along Seaward Avenue just off the beach. Don't let the front room fool you...there's a lovely patio out back for balmy days and nights of dining.

The sushi is fresh and well prepared, with the usual complement of California rolls, sashimi, and nigiri. Top it off with some hot sake and a Sapporo and you'll be quite pleased. It's relatively new to town and the owners are hustling themselves silly to plant their flag in the Ventura dining scene.

“My favorite sushi in Ventura!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Fresh sushi! It is a small, cozy restaurant with fresh, yummy sushi! I go there all the time and it is worth the short wait if it's full. I bump into locals there all the time, which is a good sign.

“Hardly ever open!”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Be sure and check this place is open before you head over there. We have often tried to go there at various times, only to find it is closed eg lunch finishes at 1.30, not open sundays. My husband ate there once and obviously was happy enough, otherwise we would not have tried to return. He has also gone and been unable to get in one time, as it was full. I would suggest having a plan B if you intend to go there.
