This place was truly special. We're from Montreal, a city where you have to pay a hefty premium for decent sushi. Well, were ruined now. The ingredients were so fresh and colourful. The price was unbelievable for what we got. We rolled out of there stuffed and buzzed on Asahi for less than $30. Would go again!

The food was amazing, the price was even better. Excellent service. I was with my boyfriend and ordered 5 rolls and we were stuffed after, but it was only $30! Highly recommended if you want some good sushi for cheap!

We ordered 8 different sushi dishes and all were good. This is not a high-end restaurant, but it is very tasty and prices are moderate, The place is very small and very busy. You might be better off calling ahead and ordering take out. This is what we did, as there was a 25-minute wait to be seated. If there... More

The sushi here is some of the freshest and tastiest I've eaten. I tried the Hawaiian and the Mexican Spicy Tuna and loved them both. Plus the prices cannot be beat. Of course the place is small and a little on the run-down side but that's not a deterrent to me. With the reggae music it provides an atmosphere that's... More

This is a very small restaurant near a community college with a very large selection of sushi and other items like tempura. There's so much to choose from that it's very difficult to decide what to eat. We made our decision, however, and the sushi we ordered was delicious. I have to say the tempura sauce could have been better.... More

What can I say, sushi here was delicious. We got 4 rolls and we were stuffed. The rolls are big and there are many to pick from. The place is really small and we were lucky to walk in and sit down immediately. After a few minutes the line was out the door. There's pictures of Bob Marley everywhere and... More

this place is consistently delicious. it's small so you will wait, increasingly as people become aware. reggae can be a little over played, but i don't listen to it as much as the average male in san diego, so not a problem. the combo's are where it's at. my lady and i come here and usually stay under 40 bucks,...

The food, the price and the reggae ambiance makes this place one of my favorites in San Diego. Unbeatable! But make sure that you're not in a hurry as it gets crowded fast.
