I can't say enough good stuff about this place. I have been a customer for over 3 years and it just doesn't get better than here. They serve some of the freshest fish. They have specials year round of some other more authentic sushi choices, like toro, live sweet shrimp, ankimo, live scallops, live uni, kampachi and so much more.... More

Sushi Lounge is our fave sushi in Encinitas. They now offer a happy hour menu with half price rolls on week nights.

Although we no longer live in Carlsbad, this is one of our favorite spots in the area. Every time we go back we always stop in for a visit. The chefs have come and gone, and the menu has changed over the years, however the Sushi Lounge never disappoints. The Lazy Chef is decadent and absolutely delicious. Any of the... More

We visited with a large group on a busy weekend. The service was good, though the venue was loud. On the plus side: broader beer and wine selection than most sushi places, good alternatives for those who don't like sushi, excellent knowledge and care regarding celiac disease dietary needs. The rolls and sashimi were fresh and tasty. On the negative... More

This place was great! We joined a few friends for dinner on a Saturday night and the service was excellent. We came a little early at 5pm because we heard it fills quickly. Exactly as we heard by 6pm the restaurant was full and busy. We had various sushi rolls, sake and other items off the "happy hour" menu which... More

This place was pretty decent for being in a strip mall. Not great but decent quality and everything was clean and well prepared. The hamachi kama was a little over cooked. Lots of rolls and other options.

We arrived at 5:30 pm and we're happy to learn of their happy hour. We ordered 4 rolls on the happy hour menu plus oyster shooters, miso, and seaweed salad. We were stuffed! The food was delicious! The sushi was not fancy but delicious! The best part was our bill was only $32!!!! It would have been 2x-3x that at... More

We moved here a month a go and this is the place we recommend. The Chuck Norris roll is awesome. The Red dragon Rola is great too. We always get great service. Kids are welcomed and parking is easy even when there is a 45 minute wait. They have 2 sushi bars.
