Both my husband and I very much enjoyed the sushi here. They were very generous with the size of their rolls and wasabi and ginger that was brought to the table. Some of the best sushi I have ever eaten.

Enjoyed this lunch spot upon arrival in La Jolla. Delicious food at a reasonable price. Enjoyed calamari, a rainbow roll and fish tacos. Fish tacos were a bit spicy, but very good!

The potstickers and miso soup were.also nice. The service was great. We say out on the heated patio and enjoyed the fading sunset. (You... More

Easy and inexpensive happy hour. Sushi rolls are freshly made but the ingredients are only average compared to other more expensive sushi restaurants.

We sat at the sushi bar on a weeknight and found the sushi chef to be especially charming. Everything was fresh and attractively presented.
