Fugus offers a full sushi bar and sit down dining with Chinese dishes. Most of the time we have had good food. If you are going to the Comedy Store for a show, it is very convenient, but parking in that area is difficult. Their main parking is behind the restaurant, and it's tight back there, but you might find... More

We are not sushi experts so we were looking for a nice place that didn't seem too trendy. Fugu is a very nice place with a friendly staff and easy to understand menu. If you don't like sushi, they have a menu for you too. The food was very nice, fresh and beautifully presented. Price was not out of this... More

This restaurant has both Chinese and Japanese dishes. We were there twice in 1 week as we had discount vouchers.The first time we had the Kung Pow Chicken and Crispy Beef. I asked for extra spicy which was not as spicy as I would have liked. They just added dried peppers and they seemed to be burnt which did not... More

I have never had authentic Asian cuisine. I mean we all know unless you live in place that have a 'mini-Asia' it's not real. But for all the Asian we've had this was the best so far. It's the only one we tried in Cali but it's better than everything else we've had in the U.S

Got a group on to eat here. It was a small place, not much curb appeal or interior decoration. Food was good and sushi was good. No complaints.

The sushi was acceptable, but unfortunately it was not wrapped very well & it fell apart when we were trying to eat it. The prices were pretty average.

This is a very small place on Peal Street just opposite of the Comedy Store. Very good food at a very reasonable price, at least for La Jolla

Went there with 2 other people and we tried a sampling of their different cuisines. We started with the cream cheese wontons. Just cream cheese in a wonton with a standard dipping sauce. Not bad tasting, but it was just cream cheese in a dumpling and nothing else, blah…I know that's what it was called, but we expected something special.... More

This review is only about the lunch specials. We were wandering around La Jolla and decided to stop by this place. I've only been here once and never had their sushi or sashimi. We came in early for lunch, so there were only like three other parties. Upon seeing their menu, I was quite surprised that they serve both Japanese... More

After reading TripAdvisor reviews, we went for supper here. The place was almost empty, which didn't add much to the atmosphere. My husband chose the house special - Chilean sea bass marinated in soy sauce. The dish was presented nicely, but the fish itself was frozen, and not good. I had the wor wonton soup as a main course. It... More
