“Best.Sushi.Ever.”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

Absolutely the best sushi I have ever had. Fresh fish used in creative but not over the top menu options. Casual and laid back atmosphere paired with great meno offerings. Will definitely come back again and again and again.

“My go-to spot in Poway for Sushi, in my top 3 for happy hour”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I will keep it short and to the point. If you like sushi, and enjoy a laid back casual setting, and are cost-consceinec, I cannot suggest any place other than Poway Sushi Lounge. It s a small dining room, often with a well-worth wait. There are some long-time staff members that remember us even though we go there maybe 3x a year. The menu is very reasonably-priced, and their happy hour rocks. THe have great deals during happy hour. I have to say, everyone must try the ichiballs! (couldn't resist). The have an okay alcohol selection (beer on tap would be a good addition), and the service is above-average. They have always been very accomadating when we go with my two young children, giving us the semi-private corner area near the entrance, bring the kids steamed rice, and not giving us any dirty looks for the mess the kids leave behind.

MMM... can't wait to go back.

P.S. Around Christmas, they usually have promotions such as buy $100 gift card, get a $25 gift card for free.

“Great sushi! Nice place for a date!”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

With many sushi choices, this is the closest we get to sushi in our part of the world. Closer to the big cities there are more to choose from, but Poway Sushi Lounge is a winner here! Friendly staff, extensive menu (it's hard not to order the "shiso crazy", but usually it's the tsunami roll for me), sleek interior decor, good wine and it's a perfect night.

“Great sushi!”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

We're always looking for a a good place for sushi and this was out latest discovery. The service was prompt, efficient, and courteous. We ordered one of the specials, the "Red Dragon" which was a little pricier than the unagi roll, but it was also much larger. Everything was delicious.
