Food was absolutely fabulous. Appetizers such as cucumber sonomono & agedashi tofu were the best we have hade. Entrée portions were well prepared and portion size more than adequate.

We got carry out to our hotel room. All the rolls and pieces were fantastic. Everything was fresh. Recommend the Del Mar roll. Called ahead and it was ready within my 15 minute walk.

Ate lunch here with 4 adults and 2 kids before boarding cruise ship at port of San Diego. Not too crowded at lunch time mid week. Casual atmosphere. Reasonable prices for lunch deals and decent sushi. Service was quick and polite. Walk to port.

The combo sushi is a win, excellent green tee (warm or cold), white wine, also good peppers appetizer, attentive service, good location. Even though next to the rail tracks, you don't hear the trains/trolleys inside. It's the Quiet Zone of SD
