While it is very difficult to find if you're not looking for it, Jugem offers the best sushi in the area. A surefire hit.

“Pretty decent lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2007

My husband and I ate lunch here while doing the historic walk through Monterey. It proved to be a pretty average Sushi restaurant. My husband had a couple of the sushi rolls which were fresh and made to order. Myself, a non seafood eater, had the bento lunch with pork and gyoza. The pork was dry and the gyoza were covered in an overly sweet teriyaki sauce. The service was pretty good and the place was clean. All in all a decent place for lunch.

“Modern, elegant, delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2004

We were having a rough dining experience in Monterey at the seafood places we were frequenting - a lot of over-fried, over-cooked fish (with the exception of some wonderful chowder) and were totally surprised and pleased to run into a little sushi place that really reminded me of my time in Japan, where the "old-style" isn't necessarily "in" and cool little sushi places are trying to look international and modern with a Japanese flair. The food was elegant and wonderful and extremely fresh, elegantly served, with a variety of unusual combinations. Highly recommended!
