Remember how the old television series CHEERS was billed as the friendliest place in the world, and everyone came because they kind of felt at home, well, Steve, the owner and Sushi Chef, at Taishow Sushi instills this same feeling.
He will chat and joke with you if you sit at the sushi bar, and is not "stand-offish" or distant. Talk about anything you want with him. If you want a surprise, just trust him and ask him to make you a surprise. It will be great. Make sure you try his mussel appetizer and his seaweed salad. My wife has too many rolls that are "favorites" to list.
The tempura batter is light and crispy and just the way it should be. Yes, the miso is also great and something we always start our meal with. His wife keeps your water glasses, tea cups or glasses or whatever else always filled.
OK, this is a small place with limited selections of raw fish. He won't always have everything but I think with the popularity of sushi, lots of things are seasonal and not available all year or are too expensive.
What this place does bring is the basic sushi cuts and a large number of rolls that should satisfy all but the finniest gourmand. As, or more important, the owner is from Japan but speaks English flawlessly and with a friendly manner that just makes you like him.
Have tried a few other places in Corona and Lake Elsinore when we were not near the Lowe's Shopping center off Magnolia, east of the 15 freeway where Taishow's is located. All other locations have always disappointed with respect to food and service compared to Taishow Sushi. On the street side (actually El Camino Ave), and just before the Lowe's driveway, you will see the word SUSHI in red on the street (non-entry) side of this separate mini strip center within the larger center. It is between a morgtage company and an Italian Restaurant I believe (this can change over time however).
Try it. You will enjoy Steve and he will remember you when you come back.
