Love this place. Fish is always fresh and there is no fishy smell in the restaurant. Happy Hour deals are amazing. Wait staff is very attentive and great values for your money,

When I can't get to Sushi Ota in PB, this is my 'go-to' joint. Everything is typically fresh, clean and friendly. Like all the good places, expect a wait. Prices are typical for this level of quality, so expectations are what you might expect. Only downside is when I sit at the bar, there never seems to be as much... More

Poway likes to refer to itself as "The City in the Country," and if that's so, then it's fair to call this place "Sushi in the Country." You wouldn't think a little sushi joint on Poway Road could hold its own against the ones down in the "real" city of San Diego, but it does. Never had a bad meal... More

I attended school with one of the waitstaff. He shared that this restaurant is owned by Japanese. Truly authentic preparation and chefs. Fresh fresh fish. Don't let the location (strip mall) or appearance of front scare you. I would never have tried it based on those factors until I knew an employee. Now it's my go to for sushi

Every year Sushi Lounge holds a contest to come up with new tastes, new variations of flavors, The winners make the menu. The winners are picked by the patrons. How awesome is that? The flavors are both traditional and unique, new and local. Poway Sushi Lounge is a most excellent adventure, ask for Tory!!

You wouldn't think that a sushi restaurant tucked away in the inland section of northern San Diego would rival other places- but this place will surprise you. Great food, excellent presentation, friendly service. One of my favorites in San Diego and IMO second only to Sushi Ota. They have interesting rolls and I've never been disappointed.

Good fresh Sushi, casual atmosphere, and if you're able to get there when they open you can get a great value for your money.

Always excellent food and great selection. Sometimes service is better than others. Some servers are very knowledgeable some just in a hurry to take your order

I would not have thought that a sushi bar headed by a non-Japanese chef would be as excellent - in fact amazing as some other places! This is authentic where the chef is third generation sushi chef. The staff is incredibly competant, attentive and fun, the food features unique rolls and dishes I haven't seen at other bars and the... More

I've been here 5-6 times. The sushi is always excellent. They aren't as creative as the high end sushi places but always fresh and delicious.
