Great location and great service make this sushi-lovers dreams come true! The Sushi Burritos are the best on planet earth and the ponzu sauce served with them will get you hooked.

While waiting for my wife to get one of her nails redone I stumbled on this small sushi bar. Prices are reasonable and the service was spot on. My wife is not into the sushi scene but is starting to come around. She kept within her comfort zone and ordered a California roll while I had a tempura shrimp roll.... More

Excellent sushi, always fresh, not expensive. In a nondescript place, next to Haggen's in a strip mall so nothing fancy. But the rolls are really good, the wine reasonable, and the staff very accommodating and professional. Sushi burrito, sushi taco, Rudy's roll, are favorites, and all of the hand rolls. Try it you'll be pleased.

We were going to Samurai Sushi which closed early this day even thought 4 different cars of people pulled up to have lunch. So I found Tabu Sushi which was a mile away. The sushi here is very very good. Nice and fresh, quick friendly service. They have a Chilean Sea Bass appetizer that is a must to order. Fantastic... More

This was my first visit to Tabu Sushi, and it was a good one. We got in early/6-ish, and the place was pretty quiet. By 8PM the place had filled in nicely. Danny was our (superb) host, and Albert was our extremely friendly/talented chef. Beer was cold, sake was hot, food was great. Staff very accommodating, we asked about what... More

It is a meal in it's self so make sure you have someone with you. The sushi is always fresh and there are many rolls to choose from. The atmosphere is nothing to brag about but the service is good. We eat here at least twice a month because the Sushi here is the best in our neighborhood and we... More

Several of my co-workers recommended Tabu Sushi because they loved the food. I took my niece there and have been back a few times on my own and loved everything I ate. My favories are spicy scallop and spicy tuna hand rolls (so good!) as well as rainbow, spicy philadelpia, spicy tuna rolls. When I'm not eating fish/seafood, I order... More

Tabu is a convenient, casual sushi restaurant. I have always had great food there. Recently I dined with friends and a baby. The server was so patient with our needs for the baby it was a pleasant experience. All of the rolls are affordable and very good. My favorite are the hand rolls and the sushi burritos. The burritos are... More

We were looking for a place to grab something quick that wasn't out of our way. This fit the bill. The sushi was OK, but nothing special. The service was OK as well. We ate here a few years ago and from what I remember it was a little better then.
