Very good restaurant in La Jolla. Fish is very very fresh, makis are amazing and service is perfect. I have been there several times and each time it was perfect.

La Jolla really needs a good sushi place—but, sadly, this isn't it. Because we had a party of six, we got to sample a lot of dishes. Only the tempura, a seaweed salad, and a grilled yellowtail kama (fish collar) reached beyond the level of ordinary. A fried tofu appetizer was sorely over-cooked and dried out. Various nigiri sushi and... More

Really a great evening with my wife, enjoyed a really great selection of sushi and sashimi and the service was perfect. Needless to say, we ate plenty and yet the price was just right.

Both my husband and I very much enjoyed the sushi here. They were very generous with the size of their rolls and wasabi and ginger that was brought to the table. Some of the best sushi I have ever eaten.

Although the small balcony views are limited, the ocean is out there and it made a terrific addition to a wonderful Bento Box lunch. Both my sister and I ordered the box, which included a lovely Miso soup, four pieces of sushi, a choice of rice, and a mixed green salad. I added the chicken strips to my order while... More

Enjoyed this lunch spot upon arrival in La Jolla. Delicious food at a reasonable price. Enjoyed calamari, a rainbow roll and fish tacos. Fish tacos were a bit spicy, but very good!

Nice change of pace from the Mexican style happy hours around. Perfect $2 hot sake and a great selection of rolls - we had all 4, the best being the crunchy roll and the Coco roll. The potstickers and miso soup were.also nice. The service was great. We say out on the heated patio and enjoyed the fading sunset. (You... More

Easy and inexpensive happy hour. Sushi rolls are freshly made but the ingredients are only average compared to other more expensive sushi restaurants.
